Fort Lauderdale's trendiest hotel—equipped with a rooftop see-through swimming pool, a wide range of spectacular contemporary rooms and suites, and an easy-on-the-eyes youthful crowd—boasts a vibe highly reminiscent of South Beach. The clubby and funky W Fort Lauderdale rises over the Atlantic like a massive luxury boat at full sail, seducing with dramatic ocean and Intracoastal views and a party-all-the-time ambience. The daytime lounge cum nightime club space, the
Living Room, features a 20-foot bar and mattress-inspired seating, letting you peek at swimmers in the see-through pool via ceiling portholes. The Whatever/Whenever concierge service provides the Acura Experience, with a complimentary Acura MDX that takes you around town within a 5-mile radius. Rooms are appropriately classified as Wonderful, Spectacular, Fabulous, and so on, and suites range up to Wow or Extreme Wow. Between Whiskey Blue with its light fare and libations, Steak 954's boutique dining, nearly 13,000 square feet of meeting space, and a grand ballroom for up to 300, don't be surprised to encounter revelry.
