Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s newest collection brand known to bring together characterful hotels with vibrant social scenes, today announced the opening of The Dalmar. Conceptualized by the DoveHill team, the 25-story hotel features 209 guestrooms including 33 suites designed by DesignAgency, with inspiration stemming from the vibrant personality of South Florida, blended with a distinctive mid-century vibe.
The Dalmar offers guests a relaxed and tropical environment with public areas that express a fresh and playful character through their layering of textures and finishes, vibrant jewel tone colors and dynamic contemporary art. 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.”
Upon arrival on the sixth-floor, visitors are treated to a wrap-around lushly landscaped sky deck with ocean and downtown views. The Lobby Lounge and Bar offers a relaxed atmosphere with 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, comfortable lounge seating options, and a luminous 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 comes to the neighborhood as both a culinary and entertainment hub within the city. Guests and locals can enjoy five social spaces, all including an indoor-outdoor component allowing guests to enjoy The Dalmar’s landscape and the beautiful South Florida weather. The hotel’s signature restaurant, The Terrace Grill, is a classic American grill, fused with hints of Italian flair. Opening in spring 2019 is Sparrow, the property’s rooftop bar, which 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.
