Hotels in Florida

Florida is known as the go-to place to vacation, so Florida hotels certainly live up to the standard. Rent a beach condo in the Panhandle, a cottage in the Keys, or go all-out at a luxury high-rise in Miami. For a luxury experience outside of the buzzing city streets, try The Breakers in Palm Beach. The hotel offers high-end amenities, with two 18-hole golf courses, snorkeling right off the beach property, and four pools to cool off in. Their spa is also famous, and the hotel offers childcare and children’s activities as well. Hotels in Florida are known for their great ocean views. Eden Roc Miami Beach is no exception. The resort echoes old 1950’s charm and its updated renovations make it one of the best luxury spots in the area. It sports an infinity-edge pool and oceanfront views in many suites. Cheeca Lodge and Spa has six tennis courts, a huge private beach and its own fishing pier. Its luxury amenities and its own saltwater lagoon for snorkeling make it an ideal place to stay in the Florida Keys. You’ll find just what you need with the variety of hotels in Florida.

Moorish-style grandeur in an 1888 property once owned by railroad tycoon Henry Flagler, who developed much of Florida’s eastern coast.

This charming establishment is traditional in design, thanks partly to being one of the few homes that wasn’t destroyed by the massive fire on Key West in 1886. Each of the 23 rooms has a lived-in feel thanks to wicker furniture and long-standing, intricate wood and stone elements.

This six-room hotel with a collection of seven waterside cottages is located along a pocket-size beach on Cabbage Key. This tropical island in the Gulf of Mexico is accessible only by boat, which is arranged by the hotel.

The property has low-slung cottages set on manicured lawns next to a beach with some of Florida’s most surf-friendly waves.

A half-hour drive from Lake Okeechobee, the 80-year-old Iris Wall runs the curious Seminole Inn and a nearby ranch with cattle, horses, and a restaurant featuring tasty frog's legs and fried green tomatoes.

With the lagoon-style pool, complete with beaches, palm trees, and an abandoned prop plane, the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando brings the South Pacific to life. Yet steps from the resort is easy access to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Universal Citywalk.

The hotel has the advantages of a Disney property (i.e., early entry to a different park each day) but more flexible pricing.

A 1940’s fishing camp has been transformed into this tranquil retreat with just the right amenities (Wi-Fi; alfresco breakfasts; mangrove-ready kayaks) and an authentic old Florida Keys feel.

This property is now the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale

With some 40 floors, the Setai rises over South Beach like an opulent obelisk, serving as a playground for damn-the-expense visitors.

South Beach gestalt has come to conservative Naples with the multimillion-dollar renovation of the former Registry Resort & Club. L.A.

Splurge for the night in downtown’s historic district. The wacky but endearing B&B hidden in an 1888 Queen Anne Victorian has 13 antique-filled rooms, five with destination themes, including chinoiserie for China, a bijoux floral Paris apartment, and horse-inspired décor for Argentina.

Painted in soothing corals and blues, the Hammock Beach Resort, on the Atlantic Coast dunes just south of St. Augustine, epitomizes a Florida tropical escape. Most of the 330 rooms have private, ocean-facing balconies perfect for soaking in the sea air or watching the waves.
