When I originally booked a trip to Ft. Lauderdale with my wife to visit friends, I had forgotten I previously stayed at the Atlantic. Instead, I booked a suite at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. Although this is not a review of that hotel, I have to start my comments there. When we arrived at the Pelican Grand Beach at 12:40AM, there was no bellman to assist with our bags. Upon going to the check-in desk, we were advised that the water in the hotel would be shut-off in 20 minutes for a plumbing upgrade. We were shocked that we were given no warning about this planned work when we booked our room and decided to stay somewhere else where we could bathe after an evening of traveling.
Our travel agent in LA found availability for us at both the nearby W and the Atlantic, but we could get a full suite at the Atlantic for the same price as a room at the W, making the choice easy.
Upon arrival at the Atlantic, I recognized it from a prior stay. The fact I forgot about says more about me having a "senior moment" than the quality of the hotel. The Atlantic is everything a good boutique hotel should be. It is a manageable size, with creative yet comfortable decor, a friendly staff and, most important to me, large rooms (I have only stayed there in suites, but I am not certain if it is an all suite hotel).
Although we did not arrive until 1:15AM, there was a bellman ready to assist with our bags and the front desk clerk was affable and efficient. Although we only stayed for one night, it was a thoroughly enjoyable visit and I will definitely not forget about this lovely hotel for my next trip to Fort Lauderdale.
