Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort

4* out of 5 stars

Towering over Fort Lauderdale’s North Beach – an addition to TripAdvisor’s recent poll of the ‘Top 25 Beach Destinations 2012’ – Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is an outstanding carrier of the Hilton legacy. Expect impeccable service and smiling staff, as well as ultra-modern amenities and views over a crystal Atlantic, or the “Venice of America’s” charming harbour. And you need do no more than simply roll out of bed to reach the endless, and indeed spotless, Floridian beach complete with private cabanas.

The 374 sophisticated studios and suites are a cut above, with contemporary design features, spacious balconies and luxurious marble bathrooms supplied with designer bath products.

Relax by the hotel pool, or alternatively the on-site spa – Spa Q – is on hand to expertly massage out those everyday tensions.

Fort Lauderdale itself is awash with activity and you will be in a prime position for the experience. Yacht hire is a popular option, and the hotel can arrange yacht dining trips. At night the beachside bars and seafood restaurants come alive.

Meanwhile Las Olas Boulevard is around the corner for some of the finest boutique shopping in the region.

The Hilton is also favourite hotel for business travel, situated as it is just a few minutes drive from Broward County Convention Center, and featuring an excellently equipped business centre.
