“Business hotel with lovely leisure pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

We spent three nights here from 13th June 2009. The hotel, just a couple of years old, sits on the edge of Hollywood key / harbour. Parking is $14 a day. There is valet parking if you wish but self-park is very easy. Reception foyer is cool and smart - the main colour used in the hotel is a soft jade green. Free wi-fi internet access. Rooms have balconies and the best ones overlook the pool area. Corridors are well maintained and the carpet is an elegant affair.

Our room, a standard one, had two queen beds - both very comfortable indeed. An excellent desk with plug-in internet access. The wi-fi signal was too weak to be of use, which was a surprise in a business-oriented hotel. The bedroom's shower and toilet were in a separate room, while the washbasin and main mirror (contemporary and chic in style) was in the bedroom. Not perhaps ideal. There was a separate, illuminated make-up mirror. The shower was of a fixed wide head design - fashionable but we'd have preferred a handheld directional one. And in a such a new unit, a decent shelf in the shower would have been helpful!

The room also had a small kutchen area with a good fridge and a microwave.

Hosekeeping was excellent.

The breakfast staff were very friendly (we got to like them all) and the buffet was perfectly adequate with fresh fruit and some tasty hot items. Not fabulous but good. Dinner in the same space - Elements Bistro - proved to be pricey but of good quality. The atmosphere is a little too businesslike to be romantic.

Outdoors, the Tike bar was staffed by the charming and helpful, handsome Nacho who made an excellent frozen daquiri. Light meals - incl. a very good salmon Caesar salad - can be served on the deck by the pool. Happy hours daily. The extremely well-designed pool offered a bit of everything from lanes to a 'beach' area. The clientele are mixed and not totally family-focussed so not over-run with the wee ones...

In sum, a good, professional hotel, with quality bedrooms. It is well-designed and nicely staffed. We did have a few minor quibbles (such as being charged $7 for a couple of pages of printing, the wi-fi issue, etc.) but would happily rate the Crowne Plaza in Hollywood really quite highly.

What a nice place.

Was at a conference at the Westin and this was half the price. The whole hotel was up to date. The rooms were clean and modern and comfortable. It had a microwave and frig as well. The rooms were as nice as any Westin I have stayed at.

Would gladly stay here again

We stayed here for the last 4 nights of our 2 week vacation, 2 nigths using priority club points and 2 nights reserved directly with the hotel

On arrival, the valet was very helpful and friendly as were the desk staff. We were upgraded to the club floor. The room was gorgeous, and looked recently remodelled, with a stunning view of the pool and inland waterway (we could just about see the ocean as well).

The room was quiet and comfortable, and the hotel was in easy reach by car of a Walmart, several restaurants and the huge aventura mall - and I would definitely stay here again

The room was clean and spacious. The furnishings were very nice and modern. Fixtures in the bathroom could use a little tightening with a screwdriver but it wasn't a big deal. Everyone I encountered was very nice and helpful. I would love to stay here again! If they would only get rid of the Starbuck's coffee, it would be perfect.

We were so happy with this choice of Hotel since we got a terrific price through Priceline!
We looked at pictures and read reviews of this Hotel after booking it through Priceline, and what you see is pretty accurate. The rooms are very spacious, great bed, and large bathroom. The balcony was also really big, and we had a great view of the ocean, and the intercoastal. We loved the pool area, and it was just in a great spot. We watched all of the boats and yahts go by on a gorgeous sunny day. We were impressed with the Service of the Front Desk, we asked for late-day check-out because we were leaving at 6:00p.m., the next day. The women told us to check back with her in the morning, and that it should not be a problem. We checked with her, and for a small fee, we were able to enjoy the beach and the pool all day!!! It was a great place to stay after coming back up the coast from spending a couple of nights in Key West!!

We stayed for four nights - got a great rate on Hotwire.

Awesome heated pool, right on the intercoastal. Great spot to watch the yachts go by. Right across the street from the beach. Hotel is new and gorgeous.

Walmart is right across the bridge from hotel, and downtown Hollywood with lots of amazing restaurants is just a short trolley ride away. You are a bit isolated from the hotspots, but fine for those with kids or wanting to just chill by the pool.

This hotel is kinda like a conference hotel. The bar wasn't open, but we asked, and someone came down to make us some drinks. The pool area is great, and breakfast was okay. The rooms are really beautiful, and we had a nice balcony.
