Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale makes AAA Five Diamond List

The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Fort Lauderdale is making a lasting impression as the year comes to a close. The luxury hotel finds itself as the newest addition for the AAA Five Diamond award list. Still trying to break free from its Spring Break reputation, For Lauderdale welcomes this recognition with open arms.

Fort Lauderdale may be the silent second city of Southern Florida, with Miami’s boisterous people and beaches taking the first spot, but with the recent Fort Lauderdale Boat Show and the Ritz-Carlton’s newest award from AAA, the city is certainly making a name for itself. The Fort Lauderdale property is just one of many Ritz-Carlton’s located in Florida, and it has only been part of the Ritz-Carlton family for one year. Before August 2008, the property was a St. Regis hotel, part of the Starwood brand.

The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale features sleek interior and exterior designs, suites with breath taking ocean views, private cabanas, an exclusive spa, access to a private country club nearby, and a 5,000-bottle wine cellar called the Wine Room; all of which certainly helped them grab that AAA Five Diamond recognition. One thing that makes this hotel stand apart from the rest of the Five Diamond hotels is that the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale is extremely affordable. Room packages start at just $239 per night, and for an oceanfront room guests typically pay approximately $329 per night.
