Fort Lauderdale’s hotels are shifting from quantity to quality. The city’s hotels now reflect the diversification and growing affluence of the expanded tourist base, which is no longer defined by college students cramming into low-budget hotels on the beach. Luxury resorts, including the Trump, the W Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton, now dominate the landscape. Last year the city approved a 22-story building, the Ocean Wave Beach Resort.
