Fort Lauderdale Hotels Rank High On U.S. News Best Hotel Awards

Millions visit sunny Fort Lauderdale every year, and if you’re in need of a hotel recommendation for a friend (or for yourself for a staycation), you’re in luck. U.S. News & World Report recently released its 2018 best hotel rankings. 

The Ritz-Carlton, which topped the list of “Best Hotels in Fort Lauderdale,” earned a gold badge by scoring in the top 10 percent of U.S. News & World Report's “Best Hotels in the USA.” 

Seven other hotels on the list earned a silver badge for ranking in the top 30 percent of all 4-, 4.5- and 5-star hotels ranked in the Fort Lauderdale area. These include the Atlantic Hotel & Spa, Pelican Grand Beach Resort, Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club and Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.

To calculate rankings, U.S. News uses the opinions of published travel experts and customer satisfaction from online guest reviews, provided by TripAdvisor. 

To find each hotel's score, points are awarded for the hotel's awards and recognitions, hotel class and guest ratings, and then divided by the number of points for which the hotel was eligible.

The U.S. News Best Hotel awards are released annually after rankings are updated.
