Dear epianoe,

Thank you for recognizing Erika and Chris at our front desk- Chris was Employee of the Month for April and Erika was our Employee of the Quarter for the 1st quarter of 2011! We know that it is team members like this that make such a nice "home away from home" for our guests.

Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

We spent a week here at the Crowne Plaza, and while the hotel is not luxurious, it met our needs for a beach vacation. The pool area was absolutely gorgeous, with front seat views of the Intercoastal Waterway. This was a highlight for us, especially after spending the day at the beach. The beach is located across the street from the hotel, and if you are okay with dodging traffic, it's not a big problem. Umbrellas and chairs are available for rental on the beach, but it will cost you $30 a day. I didn't find that to be offensive, and it is well worth it if you plan on spending the day on the beach. The rooms were extremely clean, and the beds were beautifully clean as well. The front desk staff was accommodating, and the waitstaff at both on site restaurants were friendly.
We enjoyed our stay!!

Dear Miss Vida,

Thanks for the review and the positive comments regarding our beautiful pool area on the Intracoastal Waterway. It's also nice to hear that you enjoyed interacting with our outstanding team members- they are really what make us stand out above other hotels!
On your next visit, we hope that you find the crosswalk located directly in front of the hotel with the light that allows for a safe crossing to the beach- we certainly don't want our guests dodging traffic!
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

We stayed for a few days at the Crowne Royal. The room was a little out dated with carpet, but the beds were clean. The pool was absolutely beautiful and Hallandale beach was just a short walk from the room. Parking was expensive here as well. Overall, I would come back and visit the Crowne again!

Dear jgagne,

I'm glad you enjoyed the hotel, the pool and Hallandale Beach. We conduct quarterly assessments of all parking charges in the area to make sure that we are offering some of the more affordable rates to our guests.
I'm glad to hear that you would return and we look forward to welcoming you back!

The hotel is clean, the staff is great, the pool is pretty, the restaurant was good for breakfast for 3 days, and the tiki bar serves a delicious strawberry daquiri!

However (there is always a however) you should know:
It costs $30 to rent chairs/an umbrella on the beach... even though they're crowne plaza chairs/umbrellas.

The location is not close to miami or ft lauderdale beach ($40 taxi each way), but you should take the water taxi one day if you have time! If you have nice weather, it's a great day trip.

Ask about Youngs Circle. It's a great area full of outdoor restaruants/bars, and it's only about 10 minutes from the hotel. Our taxi driver told us about this hidden gem, and it would've been helpful to know about before planning a dinner on las olas blvd (which is another 20 min away).

Dear beachbum2353,

Thanks for your positive comments and for sharing them with others on TripAdvisor! Downtown Hollywood/ Youngs Circle is a great little area, but it is also accessible via the Hollywood Trolley, which picks up right outside of our hotel, just an FYI for the next time that you stay with us.

We stayed here for five nights on a vacation April, 2011. Had a great time and would definately stay here again. The location was very good. WinnDixie and Publix grocery stores right past the Walmart so easy access to groceries if needed. The pool area was very nice and had some quiet corners if you are looking for quiet pool time. The rooms were nice and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. You could hear delivery people in the hall through the evening delivering late night snacks or people using the vending machine. The beach is across the street but we found the beach area not so clean. Within walking distance was Georgio`s Restaurant (about 30 min walk or you can take the Trolly) Great Happy Hour and Appetizers! The Broadwalk is about one mile away and great for morning runs. The gym facility is crowded but has all you need.

Room Tip: North facing rooms have quieter balcony

This is a good hotel. Staff are very responsive and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Nice decor and clean. Hotel is also peaceful for a good nights sleep. Parking is self or valet--$15 or $18. Restaurant is on premise-only had breakfast--a little pricy but food was good. Nice pool and bar outside.
Only negative no hotel shuttle pickup at FLL airport. Taxi is around $25

Dear Mobileman4,

I appreciate you taking the time to post such a nice review of our hotel for others to see and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. It seems, however, that you were unable to join us in either Elements Bistro or at the Lava Tiki Bar for lunch or dinner. We serve 3 meals a day here at the hotel and have a great variety of local cuisines for our guest to enjoy.
We hope that you will stay with us again on your next trip to the area.
