Ft. Lauderdale beach is a great alternative to Miami and South Beach. One of my favorite places to stay in Ft. Lauderdale is the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort. This high rise on the beach is part of a long line of luxury hotels just steps from the sand. What I like about this sunny destination is the great hotels and convenient restaurants and bars within walking distance. The Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort is located across A1A from Ft. Lauderdale Beach and is next door to the W Ft. Lauderdale.
