Begin the morning at The Atlantic Resort & Spa with a brioche royal French toast on the veranda overlooking the ocean. De-stress with a seashell therapy massage followed by some me-time at the secluded spa pool deck at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. Lunch at Lago Mar Resort and Club, where elegant Old Florida charm meets casual chic. Wind down the day by selecting a vintage wine from the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale's 5,000 bottle wine vault available for sommelier-hosted wine tastings. Arrange to have a cozy and romantic dinner at the Secret Garden at the Pillars Hotel overlooking the Intracoastal. Finish off the evening at Whiskey Blue, the W Fort Lauderdale's late night lounge of choice. All of this without a hefty price tag.

Membership in the Lauderdale Luxe Collection is by invitation only, and many of the properties included are either new or have recently been updated.
"Travelers will appreciate the royal treatment at any one of our Lauderdale Luxe hotels, their own way, at their own pace, with style and prestige, and at a price that won't tug at the purse strings," said Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Guests can stay in a luxuriously spacious suite at The Atlantic Resort & Spa, appropriately named for its breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and pristine beaches, or float in the oceanfront infinity pool and sip tropical drinks at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale.

The Lauderdale Luxe Collection also boasts the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, with spacious, all-suite accommodations, and the newly renovated Westin Beach Resort & Spa, featuring a new Heavenly Spa. The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina is a top choice for Intracoastal views with mega-yachts sailing by. Gamers can put on their poker face at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood with exciting day and night life.
