The Atlantic Hotel & Spa stands with quiet and elegant appeal on Route A1A, Fort Lauderdale’s seaside main drag, directly across from one of the best sections of the town’s 20-plus miles of beach. Inside, the deep chocolate lobby walls, accented with spot lighting, open up to a curved, shiny wooden bar, where you can sit on ottomans and gaze at the ocean through enormous floor-to-ceiling windows. The bar adjoins Beauty and the Feast, a delightful French bistro overseen by executive chef Steve Zobel that has elevated the dining scene on this strip. The spacious guestrooms (starting at 620 square feet) are designed in a modern beach style, in a smooth gray palette with wood furnishings and ocean views from private balconies. The marble bathrooms have both shower stalls and freestanding tubs, and the living area thoughtfully includes a kitchenette fully equipped with a microwave oven, a two-burner stovetop, a refrigerator and cookware. Despite the proximity of the ocean, most guests choose to hang out by the fifth-floor heated swimming pool. And just off the pool deck is the 10,000-square-foot spa, one of the best in the area, which offers a clever treatment menu that draws on different cultures and makes use of herbs, spices and oils from a variety of regions.
In the Area
Explore Fort Lauderdale with Beach Hopper Tours. They offer open-air transportation and guided tours; it’s an ideal way for visitors to get their bearings. Nearby is Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a hidden gem nestled between the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, and across from it is the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, a historic artist’s estate. For a casual lunch or dinner, head to Greek Islands Taverna or the bustling Las Olas Boulevard, the main strip, which has numerous dining, shopping and nightlife options.
How to Get There
After my 4 day getaway ,I have already decided to book for my winter vacation.....This is a 5 star hotel and you will get 5 star treatment the entire time you are there............The beach front views are killer!!!!!
From the time we walked in the doors, until we left our experience was unforgettable. Analiza ensured our stay was amazing. Celebrating as newlyweds she ensured we had everything and then some. To top it off Geoffrey with his warm welcoming and amazing personality made us feel right at home. Because of these two great employees we will be sure to visit The Atlantic Hotel again. Thank you Analiza and Geoffrey we look forward to seeing you soon.
Awesome customer service!! Over achieving in every way of service that involves an upscale hotel or spa!!! Accommodating to the MAX for business travel!!! I would HIGHLY SUGGEST this hotel and spa to any persons or business travelers in the area!!!
When reserving, we (2 couples, 2 rooms) told them we would be there early at noon (way before the official check in time). When we arrived one room was available, but Amaliza, the receptionist, offered us the Penthouse. Two bedrooms, living room, dining room, 3 balconies, 2 jacuzzies, OMG. Same price. She was so generous and kind. Yes, it was off-season, and yes they depend on locals at the time, but way beyond expectations. And the rest of the facility, service, and kindness from employees was 5 star.
The check-in was easy and quick. The bell staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar is very relaxing. We also took advantage of the complementary beach chairs, towels and umbrella to use across the street on the beach. Overall a wonderful stay.
