Garcia Stromberg, Julia Chi and Steven G collaborate for Conrad Fort Lauderdale

Hilton Worldwide and Conrad Hotels & Resorts will launch Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort in 2016. Conrad already has 24 luxury hotels in the Americas, but Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort will be the first beachfront resort and residence for the brand in the region.

Conceived by Michael Graves Architecture & Design, the 24-story, beachfront resort and residences will be renovated by West Palm Beach, Florida-based Garcia Stromberg, in collaboration with interior design consultant Julia Chi and Steven G Interiors.

The 290-room hotel will have a nautically-inspired aesthetic that references the area’s waterways and yachting industry, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass balconies overlooking the ocean.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The porte cochere will have an abstract sculpture by Garcia Stromberg’s Peter Stromberg; this nods to shoreline mangrove forests, while pendulum light fixtures will dot the lobby.

Accommodations will have white furnishings, natural elements—such as chestnut teak and leather—marble soaking tubs, rainfall showers and a modern kitchenette.

There will be four F&B options including a Northern Mediterranean restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a Prohibition-style bar, a gourmet market and a pool bar and lounge.

Additional amenities will include a 4,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, an elevated pool deck and nine meeting and event spaces.
