“Great hotel!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My husband and I went to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Fort Lauderdale for our wedding anniversary.
It was a great place to stay.
The staff is very friendly, smiling and helpful. They are really there for you.
We booked a oceanfront room. The size of the room was good, the bed great (king size), the bathroom nice (bathtub and shower). There was a small balcony with two chairs and a small table. It was located on the 10th floor and the view on the ocean was quite good.
The only "negative" point was that the walls of the room was not very thick and many times during the night we were able to hear peoples in the room close to us!
Another "negative" thing also is that you have to pay for the Internet (18,95US for high-speed).
We didn't go to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner but for breakfast. It was quite good and quite expensive too! (about 70US for 2 people). We said to our waiter that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary (he was asking us the purpose of our stay) and a few minutes after he came and brought us a plate of warm raspberry beignets with "happy anniversary" written on the plate! (it was such a kind attention from him!).
There is also in this hotel a fitness center, a spa and a pool.
Highly recommended hotel!

This will be my first review after two days of being here. The hotel is beautiful and the staff can't be any friendlier. Front desk, bell hops, maids, the whole staff greets you with a smile and makes sure you taken care of. Club level has great food and service. The staff in the club level are very attentive to anything you need. Second review to come.

We went to Ft. Lauderdale for the first time in May for a long weekend. Our first impression was a good one when we arrived at the hotel and the doorman warmly greeted us with a big smile and said "Welcome to the Ritz Carlton Ft. Lauderdale"

When we entered the lobby and approached the check-in desk, we were greeted by the front desk agent who was very pleasant and immediately checked us into our room even though we arrived early (11am).

Our room was spotless and had a very nice partial ocean view. The room was spacious and the bathroom was large and modern. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were very nice and plush.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the Club Level and it was heaven! Not only does it provide a very nice breakfast and lunch as well as snacks throughout the day, the staff who work in the club are outstanding. Sammy especially was friendly, courteous and efficient. Rosemunde actually went out of his way to bring me a blueberry muffin (they are delicious) when they ran out.

The pool is beautiful as is the staff. We had lunch by the pool one day and the food was really well prepared, looked great and tasted great.

The hotel is located right across the street from the beach and the hotel has a private bridge that takes you over the roadway safely to the beach.

We didn't dine in the restaurant, but we sat in the bar a couple of nights and the bartenders made the best drinks there and they offer up some yummy bar snacks.

This is the best choice in Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor with an ocean view. Also splurge on a room on the Club Floor, you won't reg...

Amazing & attentive staff! Scotty, Donnie & Ben can take care of (almost) any request with professionalism & a smile. Patrick @ the Via Luna bar picked it up for the evening shift & served up some tasty martinis! Food coming out of the kitchen was uninspired. The only good mussels are on the staff!

This is one of the nicer hotels in the area. The staff is attentive and very professional. We had no issues with any of the hotel amenities. The location on the beach allowed for easy wlaks to area places for food and drink. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for only 1 night driving there straight off of a Trans-Atlantic flight.

From the moment you reach valet parking, you know you are in good hands. The hotel staff are really excellent. We were checked in immediately and was taken to our upgraded room by Stanley.
Nothing was too much trouble for him as we were given a full rundown on the hotel amenities and local layout. The room was fantastic, beautifully decorated & furnished with a balcony leading out on to the pool.

We were in Ft. Lauderdale at the beginning of a trip down to The Keys, so when we wanted to check out but take brunch locally, Robert took care of everything including holding luggage, getting our charges itemised and debited and giving us directions on how to get to where wanted to go without being held up in the normal check-out que. When we got back to the hotel, everything was done and the car was ready to go.

It is this attention to detail and service that really impressed us. Ritz-Carlton is a good brand of course, but it is the people we encountered that set this hotel apart from others for us.

Staying 9 nights just for a Beach vacation we enjoyed the great service and nicely appointed luxury hotel very much.
From a complementary surprise desert on arrival to farewell cookies at the final evening Service and friendlyness was paramount.
We would definitely come back!
