“Wonderful Getaway”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I cannot say enough great things about the Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale, and its amazing staff! My wife and I went for a long weekend getaway and it was everything we could have asked for. Our room was incredible! We had a wrap-around balcony with views of both the ocean and the Inter-Coastal Waterway. The staff at the pool always promptly prepared chairs for us, and the same goes for the beach. The concierge nailed the dinner recommendations all three nights; they ranged from very good to excellent! Once the hotel found out we were there for a "babymoon" Kejon Dinkins in Guest Services even arranged a special treat for us, and surprised us with a sweet card, sparkling cider, cupcakes and even congratulatory balloons! It was so nice and such a wonderful gesture. All-in-all, everyone at the Ritz Fort Lauderdale made us feel like they genuinely cared about us and the experience we had there, and it showed in their service. Fantastic and we will definitely go back!

Room Tip: Get an "08" room (808, 908, 1008, etc.) for views of both the waterway and the beach. This...

My husband takes me here every year for my birthday and the hotel and staff never fail to disappoint! We booked an oceanfront room with breakfast and valet included and it is well worth the extra money you pay upfront as valet is $32 per night. Pool, spa, and restaurant staff were excellent as well as housekeeping. Not one complaint the entire weekend as usual! We have stayed at many RC properties and I would say this one is one of the best!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ritz Carlton. We had a two room suite with an intercostal view which was very nice. The pool was on the seventh floor and had a great view of the ocean. That's where we spent most of our time because the beach was very crowded and had no food service. The only negatives were the lack of umbrellas to shade us from the sun and the heat, and the pool staff who I thought were not very friendly with the exception of Roberto and Austin. Overall the hotel was very nice, though the area it was in was very crowded, and if I were back in Fort Lauderdale I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Ocean view would be the best room!

First of all, I will admit that I am not usually a Ritz Carlton customer, and as such, I'm not sure what exactly my expectations were.

The location and price point (less than 500 dollars, pr. night, pr room), did indicate that it would not be a Four Seasons / Aman style experience. I guess, it's more a very nice Marriott. We had booked thru Amex FHR and received the two rooms booked and the free breakfast amenity.

We arrived late (before midnight). All customized requests such as bedding, extra beds, etc. had largely been ignored, and it took well over an hour before everything was set up as requested. The rooms and views are fine, in my opinion. We had interconnecting sea-view rooms on a high floor. The rooms themselves were surprisingly worn. The floor tiles in the rooms had large gouges in them (in both rooms), and nothing seemed very crisp. However at the price point, it was acceptable.

Food was passable. The breakfast and room-service offerings were on par with a standard 5 star experience, but nothing amazing at all. The restaurant venue on the ground floor was a bit awkward, as outside dining was directly out towards a busy street and quite small - considering the size of the hotel. The restaurant staff were kind and accomodating, however did not seem particularly well trained, and a very easily confused.

The pool bar service was sufficient, but again nothing out of the ordinary. Most staff seemed a bit disengaged - but did complete their different tasks.

Service at points were a bit odd - like if you need to borrow a european power plug converter you need to sign a waiver and stand at the concierge desk for like 10 minutes before they get the paperwork done. Its value is literally 10 dollars - makes no sense. I did see at least one Clefs d'or - so concierge must be competent.

For a nights sleep going in or out of FLL it's perfectly fine. I would not travel to FLL just to go there.

It doesn’t get better than the Ritz in Ft. Lauderdale! We had a junior suite which was perfect for our family of three as our daughter had her “own room”. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast and the overall experience of the hotel is superior! Our flight departed at 8:40pm and, upon check in, we were offered a late check out at 5pm!!! Parents, you understand how important this is when the normal check out is 11am. We were able to enjoy the beach, the pool and extend our day at this beautiful hotel as a result! I know it’s not always possible, but it is certainly greatly appreciated when it is! We are already reviewing our calendars to see when we are free to return to Ft. Lauderdale and to this beautiful hotel!

I've stayed at many Ritz properties as well as Four Seasons , This property has as good as staff as any hotel I've ever stayed at. They went the extra mile no matter how small, Ordered birthday cake for girlfriend and it was tasty and delivered on time. Special Kudo's to Natalie at front desk who went out of her way to make our stay special, also Detlef the concierge and Scott pool bartender all were outstanding. even though we went in slow season outstanding property and highly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Go ahead and upgrade for Ocean Front don't cheat yourself !!
