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.

Nautical-crisp digs on Orlando's Crescent Lake. When you're not conquering the World, you can take out one of the resort's pontoon boats, or tackle the three-acre pool complex—climb a ship's mast to get to the top of the waterslide.

Hands down, the Ritz-Carlton is Miami's best full-service resort, with tropical gardens, a tennis center, a 20,000-square-foot spa, kids' programs, and a pristine beach.

Ocean Key Resort is adjacent to main attractions like Key West Harbor, Old Town, and Mallory Square — famous for its nightly sunset parties. Each of this boutique hotel's 100 rooms have a private balcony overlooking historic Duval Street or the ocean, plus jetted tubs and hand-painted furniture.

Brightly painted in retro greens and pinks, this classic motel has large rooms with kitchenettes and a vintage tiled pool with a basketball hoop for aquatic games.

Celebrating its centennial in 2013, this Gulf Coast island gem has never strayed far from its Old Florida roots.

The newest outpost of the London-based boutique hotel and social club, the oceanfront Soho Beach House Miami was created by local architect Allan Shulman and designer Martin Brudnizki. Expect a Cecconi's Italian restaurant, a Cuban coffee bar, and a 100-foot-long beachside pool.

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.
