“Superb hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We are about to complete an 8 day holiday and whilst the hotel is a little pricey, it is one of the best we have ever stayed in. We have had an ocean front room with two Queen beds. Room is large with all the facilities you would expect of an hotel of this quality. Bathroom is large with separate bath and shower- I like a powerful shower and I wasn't disappointed here. We have made use of the kitchenette facilities which are excellent. We had a small but very comfortable balcony. We received free breakfast vouchers on arrival and breakfasts in the restaurant have been superb. Front office staff have been very friendly and the concierge Cheryl has been very helpful. The only downside has been the $28 per night charge for valet parking and whilst we had read about this charge in previous reviews, nevertheless parking elsewhere is very limited so you are left with little choice. Would we stay here again? Very definitely and we would recommend to other travellers.

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise and found the room remarkably comfortable, the restaurant food excellent and the overall service quite good. This is a five star property right across the street fron the ocean. Truly paradise.

Beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view but the service brought it down. Our room was missing a coffee maker. I called front desk and they said they would send one up. I waited 40 minutes and called again. She gave me a lame excuse that they were busy. I finally went to the front desk and complained... But they didn't seem to care.
A bit of a disappointment considering the price

We stayed at the w hotel last year and passed this hotel on the way home. I remembered name and booked it for this year. It was very nice. Class act. Nice clientele. Very nice room/ suite. Large with kitchen. Very top shelf. I would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Get the oceanfront, you can't beat it.

We booked one nights stay at the end of a cruise, but wished it could have been for longer.
The hotel is situated at the far end of the beach away from the main shops and restaurant area. The advantage though is that the beach is much quiter here. We arrived from the port at around 11.00am and were pleased to find that the room was ready for us.
The room, a Ocean View King Suite was very impressive. It was on the sixth floor overlooking the pool. It was enormous, well furnished with a huge bathroom. There was also a kitchenette area which included all kitchen appliances, pots pans etc. For anyone who didn't mind cooking, you could stop for long periods as everything was provided.
I suppose being very picky the corridors were a little dated and the room although not dated was not ultra modern, but this is certainly not a critisism.
We dined at the brassierie for lunch twice, both times really good, and on the first day used a free drinks voucher that they gave us at check in for a couple of glasses of very nice wine which was a nice touch. We didn't take breakfast so am not able to comment on that.
We had a few flight problems due to the weather at Heathrow, and had no lap top with us. I think we were told that there was free WIFI but there was also a business centre which was free to use, so that was great and enabled us to sort our flight worries.
We booked this hotel through Otel.com and got a great rate of 180 pounds which for the quality of the hotel and the room was excellent value.
Would highly recommend and will definitely stop here again if we return to Fort Lauderdale.
One other tip, we had a very good dinner at a lovely restaurant on the beach front about a 10 minute stroll from the hotel called the Casablanca Cafe, again highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try and get an ocean view room, it would be a shame not to enjoy the fabulous view.

Dear Hector,
I'm very happy to hear how you enjoyed your suite and the quiet beach. I agree, it's a great way to end a cruise, and we'd love to have you back for a longer stay.

We just returned from a 2 night sojourn at The Atlantic. We really hoped we would not be disappointed, after we had such a wonderful experience here last June...but, once again, we were absolutely delighted with our stay!
Prior to our arrival, I spoke with Sheryl at the concierge desk to ask her to arrange to have rental bikes available for our use during our stay. Sheryl had our bikes (plus helmuts & bike lock) delivered to the hotel so they were there for our arrival, but also arranged to have our preferred "Townie" brand (the kind we are used to riding at home), AND (at my last-minute request) she even arranged for us to borrow a nifty bike carry-pack. The rentals were simply added to our room charge, saving us valuable vacation time, not having to contact the rental company ourselves. Now, I know concierge services are often used for high-roller events...but I appreciate how Sheryl really listened well to my requests, and came through as though our bike rental was just as important as any big-ticket event!
As our experience in June, we found the valets courteous, check-in friendly and efficient, and the room SPOTLESS! And talk about housekeeping efficiency...in the morning, we left early for a brisk walk and coffee, and during that time housekeeping worked their magic on our room so that when we returned an hour later, it was as fresh-smelling and spotless as when we checked in. Mia even stopped by later, to make sure everything was as we liked it.
Oh, and one more thing...a special award should go to whoever picked out the showerheads used at The Atlantic. Amazing spray and intense water pressure! The shower was so enjoyable that I emailed the concierge to ask them the manufacturers name and model number. Concierge Lilly replied to my query within the hour, with not just an answer, but a link to the showerhead manufacturer's website.
We were glad to learn the exemplary experience we had when first staying at The Atlantic is, indeed, their standard of care. We wholeheartedly recommend this hotel as, in our opinion, they continue to be the best in Fort Lauderdale.

Dear 2Tobene,
We are honored that you think we are the best! I am hapy to hear how you enjoyed bicycling with the arrangements made by our Concierge service. I am also so pleased to hear how Sheryl and Lily made a positive impact on your stay -- I know that they care a great deal.

We stayed at The Atlantic from Dec 26-Jan 3. We had a room facing the ocean, and the view was amazing. The room was very clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and the kitchenette was well-stocked. Wifi was free, and this is one reason we chose the hotel. I hate having to pay for Wifi! Please do not change this policy!

The pool area could be a little cleaner (the little tables next to the lounge chairs were a little sticky), but the service was great. The food offered at the pool restaurant was also reasonably priced.

I went to the Spa for a pedicure, and it was not great. The person doing the pedicure arrived late, seemed to not know where the equipment she needed was, and was not very friendly. It was very disappointing.

Overall, I definitely encouraged people to stay at this hotel.
