Fort Lauderdale and its neighboring city of Wilton Manors have become a top gay travel destination. This city lives in a continual celebration of diversity and it succeeds in drawing millions of visitors each year.
Dotted throughout the city, and especially in the emerging North Beach area, guesthouses that cater to the gay traveler have become a popular mainstay. These exclusive properties, many of them nearly five-star in quality and service, are mostly refurbished older motels. These guesthouses help in making Fort Lauderdale a favored vacation destination for these groups of travelers who expect the very best and, in most cases, have the money to pay for it.
The Worthington Alcazar Resort is a particularly popular guesthouse that has a high standard of excellence. Once three separate properties (The Worthington, The Alcazar and The Villa Venice), all three have recently merged. After the fences between them were torn down and extensive renovations took place, what has resulted is an elegant, sophisticated and sleek gathering place for guests to relax, enjoy the clothing-optional facilities and make themselves at home.
In all, there are 63 comfortable rooms of contemporary design. With the three properties now one, there are three pools and two large hot tubs and pleasant paths between them that are surrounded by the sub-tropical manicured trees and exotic flowers that can easily convince anyone that they've escaped the bustling metro area just outside.
In keeping with the city's stellar reputation as an upscale vacation destination, The Worthington Alcazar awaits guests and has everything in place to make the stay relaxing, memorable and worthy of a return.
