Starwood Hotels & Resorts will open two properties in Fort Lauderdale in spring 2017: the 209-room Tribute Portfolio hotel and the 114-room Element hotel. The properties will share a “sky lobby” on the seventh floor, with a bar and a fitness center. An indoor/outdoor pool deck on the 24th floor will feature cabanas, tropical landscaping and ocean views. The development also will include a three-meal restaurant accessible through the lobby, a variety of ground-floor retail offerings with a separate street-level entrance, and a parking deck. The development is in Fort Lauderdale’s downtown, in the middle of the Flagler Village district and the central business district. The project’s meeting space has not yet been determined.
