The hotel’s infamous Wreck Bar will also return with a makeover—although there’s no word yet if the mermaids who entranced drinkers through the bar’s porthole windows will also be back.
Built in the ’50s, the Yankee Clipper was a Fort Lauderdale icon long before the W (and its Real Housewives) came to town. It closed last June for the big makeover, and now faces competition in a slew of new properties including the W, sister property the Westin Beach Resort (formerly the Yankee Trader) and the Atlantic Hotel.
Regular rates will start at $259 a night but there is a Reopening Package available until April 10, starting at $189 a night. This Saturday night you can snag a room for $179 plus tax.
