The Lauderdale Boutique Hotel

The cool blue ocean isn’t going anywhere, so take refuge behind the green doors and lush gardens of the Lauderdale Boutique Hotel. 2mi (3.2km) from the heart of Downtown Fort Lauderdale, this laid-back hotel invites you to explore beyond the beach. A two-bedroom suite is ideal for your bestie beach getaway (the sands of Las Olas Beach are 10 minutes away). When the moon is out, exploring the LGBTQ-friendly bar scene Downtown is worth the quick cab ride.

Nobleton Hotel

Lounging next to the pool at Nobleton Hotel’s garden oasis is a no-brainer, but will you find shade beneath an umbrella or a palm tree? Rows of each flank either side of the clear blue waters, and both are equidistant from the barbeque grills, where you’re free to play pitmaster. Not much of a cook? Warm up some hot dogs in the kitchenette in your suite; no one will complain if the frank arrives with a bucket of cold beer.

Elita Hotel

We suppose you don’t need the penthouse suite at Elita Hotel, but how else are you supposed to get a bird’s-eye-view of the beach and the boardwalk? The unit does have a kitchen and separate dining room, so you can convince yourself that the extra upgrade for the suite can be recouped by eating in and brewing your own coffee. Don’t worry, we won’t tell if you sneak out to Starbucks next door.

Aqua Hotel

Waking up every morning under a surfboard, seashells or other beachy decor will immediately put you in a sunny state of mind at Aqua Hotel. Your studio is a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, though you’re welcome to rent a bicycle and ride down A1A as far as you wish. No need to venture far if you’re down for a lazy afternoon; two swimming pools are on site, and a surf’n’turf dinner is waiting just around the corner at Village Cafe.

Manhattan Tower Apartment Hotel

Manhattan Tower Apartment Hotel will introduce you to a little-known luxury of Florida living: canal-front bliss. These apartments let you indulge in a different kind of waterside bliss. Sip a cup of coffee as warm as the breeze on your private balcony, watching the waters of the Intercoastal swaying gently. Wave to the boats heading out to sea; then, throw on a swimsuit, and dive into the onsite pool. A walk to the beach, cafe and wine bar will take but a minute more.

Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club

Play in paradise at Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club. Without leaving the property, you’ll be able to work on your putting game, spike volleyballs into the sand, indulge in a coconut hot-oil scalp massage and, finally, see what the pickleball craze is all about. Lounging about your executive suite with nothing but a plush robe and glass of red is a prime way to spend some alone time, but the 500ft (152m) of private beach just outside may convince you to ditch the robe and earn some new tan lines.

Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa

Oddly enough, it seems like Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort hardly wants you to spend time inside the hotel. Why else would it provide rides, rentals and lessons for everything from wave runners and paddle boards to banana boats and skimboards? Perhaps, the staff are just trying to keep their oh-so-spectacular spa a secret. Considering their private pool, sauna, steam room and head-to-toe body treatments, we’re not surprised that they want to keep this palace of pampering all to themselves.

The kiddos will love spending the night at Hotel Maren. Not only are you right beside the beach, which features a giant Fort Lauderdale beach chair begging for a photo op, but the playground at DC Alexander Park next door offers sand-free fun. Don’t worry parents, you’ll have plenty of fun yourselves at the yoga studio at the hotel, munching on food cooked up by celebrity chef Fabio Viviani, and sneaking away for tequila sunrises on the fifth-floor pool deck.

Margaritaville Beach Resort

If you’re a Parrothead, then you know that a stay at Margaritaville Beach Resort will be as easy on the body as Jimmy’s tunes are easy on the ears. Leave your worries at home, and pack only a swimsuit, a pair of shades and an extra shaker of salt (just in case). Get a good buzz going with a few margaritas at the Floridays bar; then, head down for a Muscle Mender massage at the St Somewhere Spa.

Tania Inn

Tania Inn might not be in the Hollywood on the West Coast, but it assures you that the East Coast is the place to be. As the hotel is only one block from the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, you get to spend hours lounging on the beach and bar hopping the promenade. Your studio room is the ideal size: big enough to share with a friend or beau and small enough to give you the cozy vibes that make it feel like your winter beach home.

Looking for somewhere different? Book into one of the best spa hotels in Fort Lauderdale, or, if traveling with a four-legged friend, book into a top pet-friendly stay. Don’t miss the must-visit attractions nearby, including the best things to see and do.
