Broward County, Florida’s first five-star luxury hotel, spa and condominium resort and also the first St. Regis Hotel to be built in the eastern U.S. since its legendary cousin opened in New York in 1904. The 23-story tiered tower is set on an expansive podium containing a 22,000 sf pool deck complete with cabanas and luxury amenities.
The hotel includes 234 guest rooms and suites, 20 designer-furnished, private club units ranging in size from 1,400 to 1,800 sq. ft. and 29 penthouse residences in the tower. Interior features include customized European wood kitchens, marble bathrooms and marble floors throughout. The private club units each have their own balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway Major features of this resort are a full service European-style spa, a gourmet restaurant, outdoor oceanfront café, bar and lounges, a 14,000 sq. ft two-story grand ballroom overlooking the ocean, and an air-conditioned elevated walkway to the beach. The project has left a mark as a major part of the renaissance of Ft. Lauderdale’s magnificent 23-mile beachfront.
