The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Fort Lauderdale glows as golden as the coastline at this beachfront Florida hotel. The wood-paneled rooms, gloss-floored lobby areas, and curving windows are styled like the cruise ships of old, and guests can dine like first-class passengers in Via Luna restaurant, with its slow-cooked meats and linguine specials. Youngsters will love the scavenger hunts, snorkeling and storytelling at the Ritz Kids club, while adults have VIP privileges at Grande Oaks Golf Course nearby. Palms are silhouetted against the Atlantic horizon from the blissful pool deck, and beautiful views are available below-ground when you book a sommelier-guided tasting tour down in the 5,000 bottle Wine Vault.

Very quiet and great location

Very quiet...almost too quiet. Our room was extraordinary - surpassing our expectation, and the view was beautiful of both the ocean and the waterway. The hotel restaurant was not as remarkable as we had hoped, though the service was wonderful. It was a nice escape.

Great retreat for the christmas holiday

The Ritz Carlton one bedroom residence suite is very comfortable and has the feel of being at home. If you want the convenience of not leaving the hotel for light meals and drinks, the Ritz Club Lounge is a excellent option. The ocean front views are awesome. Great for couples or families.

Simply Amazing Hotel!

The Ritz-Carlton Staff made our 3 Night Getaway something to remember..The Hotel and location are magnificent. The Hotel fronts the Ocean on Beach Blvd. Tremendous view from 14th/Ocean Front.....Overlooks the 7th Floor Pool Deck..The Restuarant Food from Dining Room to Pool side was the best in town ...But it was the Staff. They are simply the best.....I have never seen anything like it...They made my Wife and I happy at every turn...The Pool Staff sets you up either pool side or on the beach and anticipate your every need while providing you with the most friendly and relaxing experience..I highly recommend the Wicker Sofas facing the Ocean on the 7th Floor Pool Deck with a Mojito from Bobby at the Bar and an order of Jerk Chicken Quesadillas..An elevated walkway to/from the beach can be accessed Ocean side with your room card..Try the Via Luna Restuarant ....the parmigiana fries still haunt me....Beautiful Front Porch serviced by both the bar and restuarant....the Valet service was top flight...the Ritz was both elegant and immaculate....friendly and fun....the Best time we have had in years!

A GREAT PLACE

The hotel is really pretty, and with a great location. Ft. Lauderdale is a much more liveable place than Sobe, and a more "beachy" florida kind of vibe than Sobe offers.

Fantastic stay

The service at this hotel is impeccable; staff is friendly and did whatever it took to make our stay memorable. The hotel is perfectly clean in every area (even the pool restrooms were immaculate). The view of the ocean is stunning, especially from the ocean front king. The gym is top notch also.

Ritz Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, Fl

Great property and nice accomodations. Unlike previous stays, the room had some cleanliness issues and electrical problems. The mananger, [...], was quick to respond and invited us to dinner, which was excellent. I love the hotel and will definately return.
