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.

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.
