14 of the Best Florida Hotels to Visit in 2014

By: Kara Franker


Wondering where to go for your next Florida vacation?

Condé Nast Traveler revealed 14 Florida hotels named to their Gold List. A few of my favorite properties made the list, including Little Palm Island Resort & Spa in the Keys, The Breakers and The Brazilian Court in Palm Beach and Ocean Key Resort & Spa in Key West.  

Number one reason to add Little Palm Island to your must-go list? Besides being uber-exclusive and luxurious, they have friendly Key Deer the size of large dogs roaming the property . No, seriously! Check out the video and see for yourself:

There are a few hotels on this list that I have yet to visit and can’t wait to see. Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach is a property that I’ve heard so much about and that I’d love to visit in 2014. The Ritz-Carlton in Naples is also very high on my list.
