August 2014 marked my 8th trip to the Grand. As I've mentioned in previous reviews, each year the resort has made impressive upgrades to the property. WiFi, new outdoor couches/chairs throughout the resort, and small upgrades to the breakfast. The Spa is outstanding and a treatment (or three in my case) is a must to really help you relax. Fellow...

This was our first time here but not the last! This place is great, the rooms are big and clean, the pool and jacuzzi area are fantastic. Just two blocks from the beach! The staff, specially John, are so kind and ready to help. By Ricardo

This was my partner and I's first time at a mens resort and we had a lot of preconceived assumptions about how gay resorts are and this place totally changed our mind. The place is very upscale and you can tell they spent a lot of money updating it. From the beautiful grounds to the modern rooms even to the... More

The Grand Hotel is truly an oasis within walking distance to the beach and all of the fanfare of A1A in Fort Lauderdale. The Spa services on property are some of the best you will find in the FLL area. The rooms are top knotch and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Since it was my first time at... More

So we decided this year to skip Ptown and head to Fort Lauderdale. Best decision we made!! The resort beat our expectations, the staff was great, friendly and very helpful. The room was exactly how it was described on their website. We ended up getting the room with the ocean view and looked directly down onto the pool. We would... More

The Grand is simply the best, still. The operations manager, Bill York, has done a magnificent job of bringing all the parts together to make this a truly enjoyable, relaxing stay. His staff is just friendly and ready to assist on whatever your needs are. Thomas, Brian, and John are just wonderful running their shifts. Housekeeping is superior to any... More

I arrived stressed and unsettled from my flight from the UK. I was greeted by John (extremely kind) who not only welcomed me but walked the entire property with me and even showed me (at my request) different category rooms. I stayed in a poolside king - perfect. The first night, I sat at the pool and everyone of the... More

Stayed here recently for a week - clean, great staff and they continue to think of everything. As a past guest of this hotel , the owners and staff continue to make upgrades that make the experience even better each time. (They have upgraded the Wifi recently). Can't wait to return!

Very nice resort that really goes out of their way to make you feel welcome! It's only a few blocks from the beach and restaurants all within walking distance. The resort rooms and pool area are very well maintained & very clean. I've been there 4 times now and will not stay anywhere else when I visit Lauderdale!!!

Nice building layout, beautiful pool area, smartly decorated rooms, but come for the staff…exceptional people who obviously love their work and want to make their guests stay special! Spent 3 nights in December before my friend and I went on a cruise; loved the cruise, but the Grand was the big surprise of the trip. Will be back, but next... More
