4 Fort Lauderdale Hotels with Holiday Spirit

By: Kara Franker


Here are four fabulous hotels in Fort Lauderdale that are celebrating the holidays with sweets, shopping, spa treatments and something I think you're really going to love ... Elfies!  

Snap an "Elfie" at the W Fort Lauderdale
South Florida’s hottest party spot, W Fort Lauderdale is amping up its holiday spirit with an interactive social media contest. You'll find selfie-ready mirrors sporadically located in 10 spots throughout the property designed with interactive elf-themed vignettes. How cool! To enter the competition, simply upload your best “elfie” (duck faces and peace signs approved) to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using hashtags #wfortlauderdale #bringthebright. The hotel will also have a huge sparkling holiday tree -- love it. More info: www.wfortlauderdalehotel.com

Connect with your Inner Fashionista at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa 
Along with a variety of holiday spa treatments such as a Gingerbread Manicure with fresh ginger and a De-stress Seasonal Soother infused with frankincense oils, the resort is also offering a Fa la la Fashionista Package, to make holiday shopping a little less stressful. Thanks to the resort’s partnership with the Bloomingdale’s located at Aventura Mall, you'll be welcomed with a “little brown bag” including a VIP wallet stuffed with savings. Other irresistible perks include roundtrip transportation in a town car to Aventura Mall, next day alterations and a consultation with your own personal shopper. Then pamper your tired feet from a long day of shopping with a stimulating reflexology treatment complete with a glass of champagne at the resort’s brand new Heavenly Spa for the ultimate post-shopping experience. Doesn't that sound fabulous? Book the package starting at $275 per night (valid through Dec. 24, 2013) by calling (866) 716-8108 and mention the code SHOPPKG. More info: www.diplomatresort.com
