U.S. News Review

Located right on Fort Lauderdale's beach, the lemon-yellow (oddly shaped) Atlantic Hotel & Spa is all about the views. In fact, it was designed with the optimum vista in mind, down to the gorgeous balconies gracing many of its 124 rooms and suites. Another guest favorite is the kitchenette stocked with a small fridge, a two-burner stove, and a microwave that comes with each room. Although you'll pay for all the perks (The Atlantic is one of Fort Lauderdale's pricier hotels), most recent visitors say the experience is worth the splurge. Along with the well-equipped accommodations, recent guests also praise the outdoor pool, but warn that you have to claim your lounge chairs early in the morning. If you don't happen to snag a poolside lounger, guests suggest you hit the beach — after all, the hotel overlooks 23 miles of Florida sand and surf. And when you need a rejuvenating escape from the beach scene, head to The Spa Atlantic for a deep tissue massage or body scrub.

Critic Reviews


“Although there's a pool deck overlooking the ocean, a lovely spa, and cutting-edge gym, the real stand-out here is the large rooms that start at 600 square feet (and each one has a full kitchenette and spacious marble bathroom).”


“Interiors are modern and minimalist, from the marble and wood and beiges and browns of the lobby to the spacious, unfussy rooms, decorated with simple, dark-wood furniture, ample marble kitchen areas, creamy fabrics, and plush carpeting. The decor chooses to frame, rather than compete with, balcony views of city or ocean.”

Travel + Leisure

“The property offers all the fixings of a large, lively resort ... but the 124-room property still manages to feel more like a peaceful boutique hotel — primarily because of its location, about a 10-minute walk from the boisterous Beach Place area.”
