On the 7th floor of the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Ft Lauderdale, the large bay window affords a beautiful direct view of the Atlantic incl north and south views of the beach below. Balcony off of the bedroom has chairs and overlooks the pool and lazy river below as well as the Atlantic. Cable Television with available in-room movies, games and music. The Pelican Grand is right on the sandy beach, you do not cross A1A to access the beach as you do with most nearby hotels. After a swim in the zero entry pool alongside a lazy river enjoy some cool treats at the ice cream parlor just off the hotel lobby. Perfect for families and couples alike. Restaurant and bar have outdoor seating available on the oceanside veranda. Enjoy the cocktail lounge overlooking the pool or have a meal on the veranda overlooking the beach, and later relax in one of the many rocking chairs. Lounge chairs and towels are available for the beach. The Pelican Grand is a beautiful, romantic and very relaxing place.

Parking: The parking is valet only, the cars are parked by automobile lift under the hotel and the cars are not accessible while under the hotel. The nightly rate is $28 with in and out privileges. Parking is available on the street, but is metered during the day, and very limited so I don't recommend parking on the street. Many guests do not bring a car, preferring to stay at the hotel, using cabs for occasional outings from the hotel.
