Editor’s Review of Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort

The hotel's location, toward the northern end of Fort Lauderdale Beach and surrounded by residential areas and a few other big-name hotels, makes it somewhat removed from the more crowded central beach area to the south, near Beach Place and Las Olas Boulevard. That said, the Hilton is still close enough to walk to the heart of the beach action and nearby cafes, restaurants and bars. While not officially oceanfront (you have to walk across two lanes of traffic on A1A to reach the beach from the hotel), this is still very much a beach hotel, where leisure activities focus on relaxing on the sand and pool deck. When you're hanging out with your family on the sixth floor pool deck, you'll have direct views of the ocean. And just across the street ... more on the beach, city vendors rent beach chairs and umbrellas on the sand, where you can set up for the day, albeit for a hefty price for rentals (bring your own beach chairs to save money, if at all possible). There's another Hilton in town on the marina, but this oceanfront Hilton is the most popular with families, particularly those on pre or post-cruise stops; it's so close to Port Everglades the debarkation point for many Caribbean cruises.

A bonus is service -- the hotel's staff is consistently praised for going above and beyond to help guests makes the most of their stay. If you're looking for a classic Florida beach vacation at a hotel that provides all the amenities and then some, the Hilton is a great choice. less

The Hilton's 374 studios and suites range from fairly standard hotel rooms (called studios) with a king bed, queen bed or two queens, to full condo-style suites with one, two and three bedrooms (with the same number of bathrooms, too) that feel more like your own beachfront apartment. The lowest category of rooms are the Intracoastal Waterway Deluxe rooms, which face the opposite direction of the beach and have no balconies or kitchenettes. It's well worth upgrading to the suite category of rooms, since all suites have kitchenettes with a microwave, mini-fridge and two-burner stovetop, as well as balconies with semi or full ocean views. Studios have either two queen beds or a king bed, with room for a rollaway. And when you upgrade to the king junior suites, you get a room with a king bed, as well as a queen sleeper sofa in a separate living room area.

Several of the room categories include connecting room options. You can request King Studios that connect to a room with two queen beds, or connect a Queen Studio to a queen suite that also comes with an extra queen sofa bed (the latter configuration sleeps 10 people between the two rooms).

The swankiest option at the hotel is the Penthouse. Located on the 25th floor, with sweeping ocean views, it has three bedrooms (two rooms with king beds and another room with two queen beds) and sleeps eight people. The penthouse also has a full kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and a four-burner stovetop and oven, along with a full-sized refrigerator, freezer, and all the necessary pots, pans and utensils for cooking in-room meals.

All of the studios and suites at the Hilton are individually owned, and while the décor differs slightly from suite to suite, you can count on sleek and modern furnishings, crisp white luxury hotel linens and bathrooms with rainhead showers and separate soaking tubs (some of the tubs are oversized and with jets, in the larger suites). All rooms and suites have coffee makers loaded with supplies, flat-screen TV's, in-room movies, desk space and alarm clock/stereo systems with MP3 connectivity.

Cribs and Pack 'n Plays can be delivered to your room with advance notice.
