weekend with the dalmar

If you guys haven’t guessed by my recent pictures up on the gram, I had the greatest pleasure of staying at one of the most fabulous hotels in South Florida, The Dalmar, Fort Lauderdale. There is something so invigorating and exciting about playing the role of tourist in your own town, even if it’s just for the weekend. 

I have to say I’ve been pretty lucky to have grown up in sunny Fort Lauderdale.  I’d like to think of the younger me as somewhat of a Blair Waldorf brunching on the weekends and enjoying the city.   But since I’m not a wealthy socialite galavanting about Manhattan in my vintage Chanel, I was trying out all the new coffee shops and restaurants across Ft. Lauderdale with the loose change that found its way in my parents laundry room haha.

The weather for my staycation at The Dalmar was heaven sent.  As soon as I checked in, and was in complete awe of the stunning lobby, I immediately had to lounge at the pool and take in what felt like a dream. The views from the pool are unreal, giving visitors a panoramic view of Fort Lauderdale as well as the crystal blue ocean. I dream about lounging poolside with a skinny margarita with Casamigos in hand, it’s truly one of my life’s simple pleasures. 

After spending such a relaxing and renewing day poolside, it was time to check into my room. I knew it was going to be beautiful, but little did I know what the staff at The Dalmar had in store for me.  A futuristic, iPad controlled elevator glided me up to the 24th floor, I swiped my keycard, entered my room and my jaw hit the floor...and I’m not exaggerating.

 I walked into a ginormous penthouse suite that had stunning views of the ocean, as well as the rest of Fort Lauderdale, that surrounded the room. If they gave me the option, I would move in in a heartbeat. From the Nespresso machine, to the personalized charcuterie and wine (which is so #onbrand for me) welcoming my arrival, I thought I was dreaming and had to pinch myself to know this was real.  It was beyond my wildest dreams - *queue Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams in the background, haha.* 

Each and every step you take at The Dalmar is filled with mid-century mod meets costal decor and details that are noticeable throughout the property.  Also, they have a Moet champagne vending machine, like how chic!  It would be my dream for their interior designers to create a new layout for my room at home.

Later that evening, I got all dolled up for cocktails at The Sparrow. I’d been wanting to check out The Dalmar’s chic rooftop bar for a while now and after visiting, I can confirm with certainty that it exceeded all my expectations.  Fabulosity on top of fabulosity! I suggest getting there around 5pm to secure a spot with the best views.  Oh and on top of that,  it’s the best for pictures because it’s golden hour, so duh!

But alas, all good things must come to an end and before I knew it my two days escaping reality in my own backyard were up and it was back to real life. I really could’ve moved in right then and there if given the chance!
