The Dalmar, a Tribute Portfolio hotel opened in Fort Lauderdale. The 25-story hotel features 209 guest rooms including 33 suites designed by DesignAgency. The design was inspired by the vibrant feel of South Florida, blended with a distinctive mid-century vibe and capitalizing on the natural beauty of Fort Lauderdale. The hotel's indoor-outdoor design offers visitors an authentic downtown experience with ocean views.

"We are thrilled to debut a Tribute Portfolio hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, a city driven by a creative energy that lends inspiration at every corner," said Jennifer Connell, vice president, Brand Marketing & Management, Tribute Portfolio. "We believe in seizing the moment to experience something new, to grow and expand, and we are excited to connect the community with our indie-spirited design, sincere service and vibrant social scene."

Arrival is on the sixth-floor along with a wrap-around landscaped sky deck with ocean and downtown views. The Lobby Lounge and Bar offer live music on weekends and a specialty cocktail menu. The centerpiece of the action, the Lobby Bar mixes an array of tropical style references including terrazzo floors, lounge seating options and a pink onyx bar with a custom-designed stained-glass mural.

"The type of experience offered at The Dalmar is a first for Fort Lauderdale and we are thrilled to align with the Tribute Portfolio brand to deliver an experience rooted in service, design and culture," said Jake Wurzak, president of Wurzak Hotel Group. "Each space within the hotel is designed to feel like a standalone destination and we look forward to playing an integral role in defining the fabric of the city."

The Dalmar boasts five social spaces, all including an indoor-outdoor component. The hotel's signature restaurant, The Terrace Grill, is a classic American grill, fused with hints of Italian flair. Sparrow, the property's rooftop bar, will boast the best views in the city from the 25th floor. Sparrow is created and operated in collaboration with Proprietors LLC, the lauded hospitality company and team behind cocktail institution, Death & Co.
