My last review of this hotel was several years ago despite yearly visits, so I wanted future guests to know how wonderful the hotel still is. :) We just left from another fabulous stay. Pelican is the only hotel we've stayed at in Ft Lauderdale since the early 90's, with the exception of when they were building the current hotel... More

Stayed in oceanfront king suite. Breathtaking view and room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Pricey but worth it. Staff is friendly and helpful and food is delicious. Will definitely return as the room had everything we needed

Very pleasant stay, and the staff was wonderful, especially Kimberly S. at the ice cream parlor. Only point of criticism were the flimsy balcony railings outside our 10th floor room. We were afraid to sit outside.... The lazy river and the beach were amazing. We will be back to this old-charm, quiet hotel.

Just a word of thanks to the staff at the Pelican Grand. Valentina S., Kyle S., and Akeem F. were very attentive and kind when we were poolside. Andrew and the front desk staff were also very helpful. Everyone was kind...I love when that happens. The rooms were huge and very clean. I loved the decor. Thanks again. It was... More

Stayed here a little while ago for 7 nights, we were so impressed. The hotel is beautiful, the room felt so luxury and spacious (as we had a corner room.) It's right on the beach and you can sit on the lovely veranda, looking out at the sea view. The staff were all friendly and polite, we had a great... More

This must be an old place. Right now, I feel like I'm staying at a Days Inn with a different sign in the front. Room is in need of a thorough cleaning....the whole place is in need if a thorough cleaning, in fact. Old is one thing, but dirt and grime is another. Staff was pleasant and tried to be... More

Dear Ippefan, It is very disappointing to read your review and I must admit a little confusing. I would love for you to call me personally as I believe you may have rented a private owner's room that is not part of the hotel nor up to the hotels standards. I do however apologize and hope we can make this... More

Water front views are amazing. Nothing like seeing the sunrise over the Atlantic. The resort is top notch from begining to end. The pool is great for kids as it slopes down, so you can bring an infant ot toddler in it. There is a lazy river pool which is fun for all ages. Then there is the beach. While... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful Hotel for two nights in July of 2014. Wish we had stay at least 3 nights. First the Hotel staff. They are absolutely amazing!

We are a family of four and have been going to the Pelican for about 7 years. We absolutely love the facility, it's staff and location. It's right on the beach and just about all of the rooms are oceanfront. You do not have to cross a busy street to get to the beach. The property is not so large... More

The best review I can give is to say that I plan to stay here whenever I go to Ft. Lauderdale. As always, I researched the hotel on Trip Advisor. As always, there were some negative comments. I am so glad I ignored them and picked this hotel. We got a great rate and knew it was the right choice... More
