South Florida can be amazing for family vacations. Here is our guide to the best family hotels in Fort Lauderdale.

Pelican Grand Beach Resort

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort offers style and class in this Victorian high-rise beachfront hotel. I’ve mentioned elsewhere on Suites and Lobbies that “the Pelican fulfills a nostalgic Floridian vacation that harkens back to the heydays of early Atlantic coast vacations.” This is absolutely true and it may be a way to share some of those memories with a new generation.

Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort

We covered the twin property to the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, with a similar name (Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina) in our post regarding luxury properties in Fort Lauderdale.

Lago Mar Beach Resort

Our top pick in the category of Best Family Hotels in Fort Lauderdale

Families searching for luxury accommodations in the Fort Lauderdale area will love the Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club. The property is beachfront and has plenty to keep kids entertained and their parents happy.

Hotel Dello Fort Lauderdale

Families on a budget love Hotel Dello Fort Lauderdale. This Hilton-affiliated (Tapestry) hotel gives the quality the company delivers across its brands, with the value families need. Spacious rooms (some very large) give the extra room for families that need more space than business travelers or couples.

Many rooms have ocean views which invite guests to soak up the sun and enjoy the sights of nearby North Beach. The property offers plenty of beach toys for families to enjoy the nearby waves (though the property is not waterfront.) For those that like looking at the beach but not swimming in the ocean, Dello also offers a swimming pool.

Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa

We saved the best for last, the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa. Impeccably designed, beachfront, yet family-friendly, this Marriott has just about everything a family could want.

The property features fresh and modern decor with spacious guest rooms, sea views, and walk-in glass showers. For families with smaller children, rooms with bathtubs are available. Plush bedding, flat-screen TVs with plenty of entertainment, and a desk for remote working parents are some of the reasons that the Marriott Harbor is a favorite.
