The Vibe: Downtown Floridian.
The Area: If it is the beach you are after, look elsewhere, as The Dalmar is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
The DNA: At 25 storeys tall, The Dalmar offers an urban alternative to Fort Lauderdale’s beachside hotels; the 209-room property a playground for travellers and locals alike. The Tribute Portfolio Hotel is blessed with a whopping 100-foot infinity pool, the first rooftop bar for the Floridian city, four additional food and beverage options, and indomitable views of both downtown and the pristine beaches that dominate the coast of South Florida. From artisanal coffee shop cum wine bar, Rose’s; through cocktail bar and Italian eatery The Terrace Grill; to Sparrow Rooftop Bar, which is half indoors, and half out, evoking the flair of the swinging ’60s whilst serving fantastic food and cold beers – all with some seriously enviable views. The reception can be found on the design hotel’s sixth floor, and boasts a large mixed-media and neon paiting by Canadian artist, Thrush Holmes, emerald quartzite walls, and spectacular ocean views. Here guests will also find the Lobby Bar, with its potted plants and palms, a luminous pink onyx bar backed by a custom-designed stained-glass mural, and the infinity pool flanked by relaxing daybeds. It’s the natural hub of the property, a place with an authentic buzz and happy travellers soaking in the sunshine.
Suite-Me-Up: Guest rooms feature calming materials in contrast to the louder public areas, natural woods and marble used to accentuate clean-lined simplicity, a muted colour palette, and thoughtful design.
