Why Stay At The Atlantic Resort and Spa
This 124-room oceanfront retreat, one of the first condo-hotels to open along the northern stretch of Fort Lauderdale, mixes top-notch amenities with an air of tranquility.
A flurry of development over the last decade has made Fort Lauderdale a serious warm-weather hot spot, and the Mediterranean-style Atlantic Hotel, just three miles from downtown and eight miles from the airport, was a 2005 pioneer in the area. It's one of the original luxury condominium-hotel projects that popped up along the beachfront stretch of A1A. The property offers all the fixings of a large, lively resort (panoramic ocean views; a happening weekend pool scene; an indulgent, holistic spa), but the 124-room property still manages to feel more like a peaceful boutique hotel—primarily because of its location, about a 10-minute walk from the boisterous Beach Place area. It feels homey too, with extra-large rooms (starting at 600 square feet), all with well-equipped kitchenettes and a balcony or terrace.
On weekends, grab lunch at the hotel's poolside Ocean Terrace Bar and Café, when build-your-own-burger stations are fun additions to the usual full-service menu of truffled chicken salad sandwiches and homemade hummus with warm pita bread.
Cool off with a fresh mint and cucumber Cubeltini (the hotel's signature vodka cocktail), at the classic East End Brasserie, which is set to reopen in November after a renovation.

Where to Eat: When local Floridians are in the mood for a laid-back dinner with a great view, they head to Aruba Beach Café—four miles north of Fort Lauderdale in quiet Lauderdale-by-the-Sea—for Caribbean-spiced lobster sandwiches and Aruba rum-runners with unobstructed views of the ocean.

Where to Drink: The fashionable crowd and sleek interior at Yolo—short for You Only Live Once—feels more like South Beach than Fort Lauderdale. People-watch from a seat at the bar with a glass of Pinot Grigio and the Szechuan calamari and tuna sashimi appetizer.
