Florida Hotels

Although the sun continually shines, the surf continually rolls and you're never faced with a boring moment in Florida, there comes a point every night when it's time to call it a day. Believe it or not, where you lay your head at night can have a significant effect on how you view your overall vacation. Nobody wants to spend the entire day enjoying themselves, only to come back to a lousy, rat-trap hotel room in the evening. That's why one of the most important decisions you can make on your vacation is in which Florida hotel you're going to stay. Luckily, Florida hotels come in all types -- from the luxuriously opulent to comfortable, budget-conscious accommodations.

Luxury Florida Hotels


It doesn't matter where you plan on staying in Florida, you can find the type of living you're accustomed to. If you're visiting Orlando, Florida to enjoy the magic at Disneyworld, then plan a stay at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Completely decadent, the 853-room resort gives each guest the experience of staying on a South Pacific tropical island. With pure white-sand beaches, the Nanea Volcano Pool and its own marina, guests may actually find it difficult to leave. Rooms begin around $330 per night.

Guests planning to stay in Palm Beach certainly have their work cut out for them. With The Breakers Hotel and the Ritz Carlton Palm Beach each branding five-star luxury, it can prove a pleasantly difficult decision. The Breakers offer 560 rooms of fine Italian Renaissance-styled appointments, all gorgeously set on 140 acres of heavenly oceanfront property. Plus, it has the distinction of being one of the nation's most legendary resorts. With rooms starting around $289 per night, it's a hugely popular Florida hotel. Likewise, the Ritz Carlton Palm Beach offers uncompromised convenience and refinement. With 270 rooms, starting around $249 per night, guests can enjoy a multitude of activities and services like the spa, outdoor pool, golf, tennis and so much more.

The Daytona 500 draws thousands of guests to Florida each year. If you're one of the lucky ones, then make your reservations early if you want to ensure a room at the glorious Shores Resort and Spa. Ideally situated on a small stretch of island, the 212-room hotel offers a cozy, cottage ambiance where personal service is paramount. With amenities including watersport rentals, full-service spa and outdoor tiki bar, you'll quickly realize what a bargain this stunning Florida hotel is at only $119 per night.

Budget-Conscious Florida Hotels

There are many value-priced hotels across Florida. In fact, the northernmost region is filled with them. A fine example is the St. Augustine Beachfront Resort, located near the oldest city in the United States. It's nicely situated right on the beach, and each of the 147 rooms makes a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Florida beaches and popular attractions. The best part is, the comfort, serenity and beachside view will only set you back $79 per night.

Florida is also home to many charming Inns, where guests can enjoy comfort and quality for a fraction of the cost of a hotel. The Avalon Waterfront Inn, located in Fort Lauderdale offers 70 rooms of varying sizes. The rooms begin around $60 per night, and come with a host of amenities like free wireless Internet and a free continental breakfast. There's even a place for a beachside barbeque.

Believe it or not, affordable accommodations can even be found in a cosmopolitan city like Miami. The Continental Hotel South Beach is located right on the oceanfront in the Art Deco District. With 249 rooms starting around $79 per night, you may feel like you've hit the jackpot! Only five blocks from Miami's hottest nightclubs, Skybar and Delano, you can party like it's 1999 and not have to worry about getting lost.

These are just a sampling of the variety in Florida hotels. While these hotels range from the sublime to simplistic, you can expect the accommodations to run the gamut in Florida. Utilize the Internet to find the ideal Florida hotel to compliment exactly the type of experience you're looking for in the Sunshine State.
