“Hollywood Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I would first like to start off with what an amazing weekend I had in Florida. My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from New York for a few days and we really got to enjoy our time. The location was okay, it wasn't exactly on the beach; but the beach was only a five minute walk across the street. Hotel staff was nice especially our bellman who checked us in named Kevin. He was so charming and friendly to us throughout our whole stay. As soon as we walked in he greeted us with water, helped us with our bags, and let us know about what cool stuff there is to do in the area. The water taxi was pretty cool as well we got to go to beachplace in Fort Lauderdale and Las Olas. I will say we had a great stay and will be returning soon.

I hate relying on reviews..i mean how many are true, how many are picky, snooty people? I'm just an average traveler w/my husband. But we like it nice!
Overall our 3 night stay was great. We checked in late and they ended up giving us a northeast corner room. Two balconies. One looking to the entercoastal and one with a view of the ocean (between two buildings).
Staff was nice. Pool area was gorgeous, with an infinity pool on the entercoastal waterway with a draw bridge in view. The tiki bar was nice, but expensive $30 for 1 frozen drink, club sandwich & fries. We did mix our own drinks before the pool to save money. The signs say no outside food or drinks but being descret they didn't say anything, plus it wasn't busy at all. (No glass)
There is a Wal-Mart, liquor store & dollar tree just across the bridge you "could" walk to. A 7-eleven RIGHT next door. The beach is just across the street, but the board walk, although small is about 2 miles or more. We took the trolly for $1 pp ea way. There is a trolly stop right in front of CP but it was a joke. Don't rely on the "trolly stop" signs. When they say "enter here" it MEANS "enter here" don't stand under or by the sign, that is not where they stop..it is usually back off the road somewhere every 30 mins or so.

Situated halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. A bit basic looking on the outside, but once you get inside it is very pleasant, lovely pool and surrounding area, backing on the to inland waterway (water taxis stop at the hotel). Good restaurant with an adequately varied menu, meals delivered by pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. Our room was of a good size and everything was clean. The bedrooms are being systematically re-furbished as guests vacate; I would imagine most have been done by now. We managed a two week stay at this hotel without a car, as it was our first visit to this part of Florida we wanted to get our bearings first. There is a trolley bus that stop right outside the hotel, county bus stops in both directions within a short walk and water taxis at back of hotel. The beach/ocean is on the other side of the main road, and the boardwalk starts about half a mile up the road; for those who like a a good walk every day this is perfect.

Room Tip: Take an umbrella; although the weather was mostly glorious it can pour down very suddenly. You can...

This hotel had everything we were looking for and a great value Beautiful tropical pool area with a horizon to the intercostal. Picture yourself in the pool with drink in hand watching the boats go by. The room was big and very comfortable - even a little kitchen area. We walked to the ocean beach which was just across the street and past the condos. Small beach but you can walk a long way along the water and great ocean waves! Not walking distance to anything except a quick mart next door which is great for drinks, snacks and a light breakfast but close to everything with a car. We enjoyed the Ft Lauderdale Hollywood water taxi which stops at the hotel. Spent the entire day cruising the intercostal seeing so much more than you would ever see driving or walking. We did not eat here except for one lunch and drinks at the pool. Loved our stay!

Room Tip: Joined the Crowne Plaza frequent stays and given coupons for free Starbucks coffee. Check their web...

I love this hotel! My room was clean and beautiful, however the hotel was not close to any restaurants, you do need a car or be ready to spend a lot of money on a cab. The pool was great and relaxing, there was also a Tiki bar next to the pool if you wanted something to eat or drink. I ordered room service and I probably will never do that again because it was very expensive considering its the Crowne Plaza Hotel, I spent almost 70 dollars just on two average meals.

Dear Lisa C,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.
We are sorry to hear that the parking fee was an inconvenience. It is a standard in South Florida with hotels alongside the beach side. We will be sure to discuss the bed issue with our Executive management team and take necessary action. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We appreciate your wonderful feedback on our staff services and especially for mentioning Kevin. We will be sure to recognize him for providing such memorable service.
Thank you for your time Lisa and we hope to see you soon!

We stayed at the crowne plaza Hollywood Beach resort for 7 nights. Very friendly and helpfull staff.
Parking worked excellent ( I believe it was $17.00 for self parking and $ 19.00 for valet). We had a king size bed room. Good space, nice little kitchen area with a fridge.
Not to happy about the bed covers, it was not super comfortable.
Beach is located 2 min walk from the property. Excellent towel service at the pool. Large pool with simple pool chairs and bar service.
Publix supermarket located 5 min away by car. The hotel gym could use an update and some more equipment (not sure if there is room for this).
All and all, great value for what we paid.
