Hotel

Hubby and I are looking at possibly going to Hollywood or FLL this summer. We went to FLL last year and while out driving one day to Miami we drove through Hollywood and thought we might try there this year. We drove past a hotel but can't remember the name and was hoping someone could help. We think it was in Hollywood but aren't sure. It was more of a resort as it took up both sides of the road and had a walkway connecting. If I recall maybe the parking was across the street, maybe some shops or lobby or something was in the area across the street also. If anyone can help it would much appreciated.

Thank you Lulutoo! I was thinking that it was probably the Westin. Do you have any other thoughts on places? We stayed at the Hilton in FLL last year and are trying to decide between FLL and Hollywood this year. We drove last year as we didn't know if we would need a car and this year we have decided to fly and pass on the vehicle and figure out transportation while we are there depending on what we decide to do.

The Diplomat is one of those hotels that have pretty much everything you need without leaving the resort. I believe they have 6 or 7 restaurants, golf, beach, spa, tennis, pools....

The Hollywood Trolley passes by the hotel so you can flag it down and go to the Broadwalk or downtown Hollywood, or catch the water taxi at Diplomat Landing and head to Fort Lauderdale or South Beach. I wouldn't rent a car because parking is so expensive, but if you decide you do want to have a car, there's a Hertz rental office at the Diplomat.

For something else to do while at the "DIP", you can always go to Gulfstream Race Track. The Florida Derby was there last Saturday. Friends went and thought it was great. Guess I'll have to put it on my list of things to do next year!! There's also a casino at Gulfstream. How many ways can I lose my money???? lol

There's also the Hollywood Beach Marriott. The hotel is directly on the Broadwalk and I think that every room has a balcony. What's nice about this hotel is that there are a variety of restaurants within walking distance and I have to admit that the Broadwalk is one of my favorite places to be!

Thanks you guys! You have helped a lot! We are still trying to decide between Hollywood and FLL. I was looking at the Water Taxi. We did that last year while in FLL and really enjoyed it but according to the website it doesn't run during the summer months for Hollywood and Miami. Is that correct? It looked like that was only seasonal and we are looking to be there probably in June or July. I will definitely check out the Hollywood Beach Marriott though. Right now we are considering the Dip in Hollywood or the W in FLL.

I'll check it out for you but my understanding is that the Hollywood run was not just seasonal but a year-round trip.
