Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach

A cut above: Since opening in October, the Conrad quickly has distinguished itself as a sophisticated addition to the resort scene along State Road A1A, perfect for travelers looking for more of a boutique hotel experience. A sixth-floor Sky Deck covering more than 10,000 square feet seems destined to become one of the more popular spots in Broward for outdoor events—but it’s hardly the only highlight.

How suite it is: Each of the 290 all-suite accommodations at the oceanfront property (551 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.) features a balcony or terrace (some as large as 1,000 square feet) overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or Intracoastal Waterway. Design touches inside the studios, junior suites and one-, two- and three-bedroom options speak to the Conrad’s emphasis on high-end details—Italian marble in the bathrooms, chic American walnut cabinetry, kitchens with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and more.

To dine for: In addition to its nautical lobby bar, the pool bar and grill, and an on-site gourmet market (Cornucopia), the Conrad delivers a shared-plate concept at Terra Mare. Executive chef Johan Svensson has designed a menu that encourages communal dining, with smaller dishes such as braised octopus with white-bean puree, and tuna crudo with compressed watermelon—and large-plate selections, like crispy whole bass and bone-in tenderloin with root vegetables.

Above and beyond: Ask about the personalized experiences available at the Conrad—like the in-house trainers who can customize workouts at the hotel’s 24-hour fitness room or across the street on the beach. For those staying in suites with full kitchens, consider booking one of the chefs at Terra Mare to prepare a multicourse meal in your room.

By the numbers: Touch-screen technology at the Conrad provides property info—and recommends things to do around town via the 1/3/5 program (experiences to complete in one, three or five hours). Our pick: the underwater poker scuba adventure.
