“Very nice property, wonderful service and dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Stayed here for two nights during July on a business trip. Loved the rooms and the very cool style and smell. Rooms were beautifully decorated, beds felt great, comfortable pillows and soft linens. Had dinner (wasn't planning on it but a rainstorm kept us from going out) in the hotel restaurant - it was one of the best filets I have had in a long time - chef was wonderful and was a delight, came out to say hi to diners. Great value for "off-season" - will definitely stay again. Couple of drawbacks is it is NOT on the beach and breakfast buffet was not in the best of shape...

The reception area is lovely and modern. Most of the staff were helpful just one that couldnt understand english in a non-american accent. The pool is huge with varying depths. Its really beautiful, enough beds, but not too much. The tiki bar is nice but could have more. The rooms were nice and spacious with a little balcony and two chairs. Only problem there was not baths. But lovely and modern

As a million plus pts Platinum member of IHG hotels when i comment that i highly recommend
this hotel for vacation or business i mean business . The beds are 2nd to none and great view.
I really like the pool and professional helpful attitude of the staff. This hotel knows how to treat and
retain valued customers. Just an overall nice experience and close to Gulf stream park and ventura mall. The sales manager Michele is the most professional of any hotel i have ever dealt with .. Business travelers give this hotel a try.

Room Tip: All rooms have great balcony views but go a few bucks more ( I think 45.00 to 50.00) for a corner ro...

I read reviews on trip advisor before booking at Crowne Plaza so my expectations were met. I wanted a room on a high floor, and got the manager's info off of the reviews and emailed her in advance with my request. I arrived to the hotel early and my room was not ready, but I was able to change and head to the pool, while they stored my luggage. Once my room was ready, the concierge brought my luggage upstairs very quickly. The room was pretty spacious and clean. The bathroom has a very large and nice shower (the shower head is kind of low, so if you are tall, that might be a problem). My room had a sink, microwave and fridge - which were very convenient. The pool area is very nice, the pool is warm, lots of chairs. They also offer towel service, and there is a bar, you can also order food and they will bring to you. There is a 7-11 right next door, which is good for fruit/water/snacks - quick bites to take to the beach. If you head to the right when you come out of the hotel and cross the bridge, there is a shopping strip with a Walmart - where you can pick up anything you need. If you dont have a car, just remember you have to lug everything back ;) I walked to the boardwalk the first day, maybe about 1.5-2 miles, not a bad walk, it was a bit humid, so it felt hot, but not unberable. There is also a trolley that picks up right outside the hotel and it only costs $1 per ride. I got a great deal on Hotwire, so overall and for the price I paid, it was a good value for my money. I would recommend this hotel to others. Just one small note, it says it is a 4-star hotel, but I would probably consider it more like a 3.

Dear Ljd619,

Wow! Thank you very much for taking the time to share that detailed review.
We're so happy all of your expectations were met and we receive the room you requested. Your compliments on the hotel and the service provided are much appreciated.
Actually, quite a few guests walk over to the Hollywood Broadwalk rather than ride the trolley just to enjoy the scenery. :)
We certainly look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel the next time you’re in town from Virginia. See you soon!

We stayed here on July 4th weekend. Decent hotel, room was clean and nicely furnished and decorated. I think is a very good value for the area. beaches across the street and nice pool area. Had to pay for parking so we went for the vale option. Would stay there again.

Stayed here the weekend of June 20th, first it was raining a lot on and off so the mood was gloomy. Checking in was ok besides having to go back to the front desk to retrieve my license since the clerk failed to give it back to me. She calls my room and says you left your license, nooo you forgot to give it back to me. Well when I did get to my room with the view of the parking lot, which is what I expected no big deal, paid through hotwire. The room itself was nice and very spacious I liked it a lot.
The tiki bar was open for a couple of hours when the rain gave us a break, but it was like they weren't there the music was dull and the drink specials were non existent. Anywho my husband and I got in the hot tub and it started pouring but it was nice we stayed until the lightning came. The only thing that I did not care for was the area it was dead and ancient looking, both days we drove to Ft. Lauderdale beach it was lively and wonderful. Decent hotel but would not stay again don't like the area.

Dear TeewandaAtlanta,

Thank you taking the time to share your experience with us.
We're sorry to hear it was gloomy during your stay with us. That can definitely be a damper on your vacation but love that you stayed in the hot tub despite the rain. :)
We do apologize for the inconvenience of the license incident at check in.
Hollywood beach is certainly different from Fort Lauderdale beach. Were you able to speak with the concierge on things to do in the area? Hopefully, we'll get a chance to show you what Hollywood has to offer! Have a great summer.

We recently stayed at this Crowne Plaza for a visit with family in N. Miami.
Chris at the Front Desk was very professional and helpful and found us a room which we could check into early and upgraded us up to the 8th floor.
Room was clean and bed very comfortable.
We enjoyed the pool daily and lunched at the Tiki Bar upon arrival. We used a $25.00 gift certificate from restaurant.com which we purchased for $10. before leaving our home.
We did take the short walk to the ocean across the street and found the beach clean and the people were friendly. Trolley to Hollywood Broadwalk is a must,
There is no shuttle to this hotel from airport so we used the Green Go Shuttle service for $13. per person. When we arrived at airport around noon the shuttle was running late so they "bumped" us up to a towne car at no increased price.

Dear Mike M,

We appreciate you taking the time to share this kind review.
Thank you for all the great feedback and for the special mention of our Front Office Supervisor, Chris. He is an excellent member of this team and we will surely thank him for the memorable service he provided to you.
It does sound like you really had a chance to explore Hollywood. Next time, you should take the family for a ride on the Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi. It picks you up just behind the hotel. :)
Hopefully, you'll see you the next time you’re in town from New York. Have a great summer!
