We spent an extended stay and the hotel and staff were just great. Kathleen at the front desk was beyond what you could expect-so helpful. Jacki and Jenny made breakfast outside a treat. Ackeem, Jeff, and Kyle made the pool and beach nice as they always were available to help out pool or beach area. The valets helped prevent choas... More

This hotel was a refreshing surprise in Fort Lauderdale for a long weekend away from a seemingly neverending Chicago winter. Having previously stayed at the Ritz-Carlton down the road, this time that hotel was 4x the price of the Pelican Grand, so it seemed well worth a try. We definitely made the right decision, and it will be my go-to... More

Overall we had a nice time. The pool and lazy river were very nice and so was the beach. We booked through Orbitz and don't recall any mention of the property being under construction, a surprise at check-in! They do not have a spa, but will once the construction is done, however the fitness room is very small, limited equipment... More

While the service was fine, the food and premises were lacking. The calamari came to the table cold and the public areas such as the porch and ladies restroom really hadn't been well cleaned. I was really surprised by this as was my friend who was staying there with her husband.

Ongoing renovations, starting at 8am each morning, make for a less than relaxing environment. The staff is great and the location ideal for a family getaway, but the noise is ridiculous. Had the property advised us of the construction, we would have stayed elsewhere - but I guess that's the point and the reason that we were not informed.

Noise level during weekday during construction is not conducive to a relaxing stay. Any room above the 5th or 6th floor will be a waste of money. Wait until the construction is completed to book a room.

Very disappointing, we have stayed here 3 years in a row and had a great experience in the past. They are doing renovations to improve the hotel, however we were never informed of this! Today the trucks came rolling in at 6:50 am, so much for rest and relaxation. For what they charge this is not acceptable! I would not... More

This is a first-rate hotel where the staff has clearly received outstanding training across the board. On the beach, in the hotel, at the restaurants, nothing but smiles and excellent service. Not pushy, not "my name is Lou," just top-notch service. The current construction is unfortunate but only during the weekdays so the weekend was lovely inside as well as... More

Went to Pelican Grand for what we hoped would be a nice getaway at a hotel on Fort Lauderdale beach. Instead were treated to a view of a crane centered directly outside our balcony and a sandy view of an ugly construction site and dumpster below. Yes, we get that sometimes construction goes on at hotels. And yes, we read... More
