My wife and I stayed post cruise. we arrived early and of course we had to wait until 4pm to get our room. we were offered towel cards and we could use all the facilities of the hotel. the room was delightful however I immediately noticed an iron bed frame surrounding the bed. - mental note to be careful if...

Even when you're on a budget, you can enjoy this lovely place by going for lunch. If the weather is a bit cool, have your lunch on the porch with the ocean a few yards away. If it's too hot, lunch inside. I suggest you make a reservation and ask to sit near the window so that you can have... More

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.

I will definitely be returning to this hotel. We stayed in a two queen bed ocean front suite with a private balcony. The room was as it is shown on the hotel site and very spacious. We really liked the living room that separated the bedroom and having two TVs. The room also had a refrigerator and microwave oven. The... More

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
