“Nice Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2008

This hotel is in really nice condition, great location on the Broadwalk and beach. Only problem was teens or early 20's staying across the hall from us on Saturday night. VERY loud party at 1:00 a.m. I called the desk. They sent security up who walked by the room, but never addressed the issue with the kids in the room. They also did not call me back 10 minutes later as promised. I did not get our paper one day - they said they ran out, but did get me a different paper later in the day. Our room was always cleaned VERY late in the afternoon when we were arriving from the pool.

The pool was nice, but did not have enough space for everyone to have a chair. There are lounges on the beach, but they charge $7 per day. I think they should be provided for guests.

I would go back to this hotel though. It was in great condition, very clean and friendly staff.

  • Liked — Clean, wonderful bed, pretty hotel.
  • Disliked — Too small pool area and charge for lounges at the beach.

We spent the final 5 days of our 35th Wedding Anniversary trip at the Marriott Hollywood Beach in Florida. What a wonderful place! Initially we had a problem with the A/C in our room. The maintenance man, Casey, and the manager, Tomika immediately moved us to a beautiful room with a combination ocean/view and pool view that we enjoyed from our balcony. In the evening we received a complimentary amenity basket containing Champagne and delicious chocolates from the management-thank you Tomika-wishing us a Happpy Anniversary. The next evening they sent us another amenity basket with cheese and wine letting us know that they wanted to make sure we were happy with our new room. From Day one, the entire staff at the Marriott greeted us in a way that made us feel special. The pool setting, the ocean, the broadwalk with a wide variety of restaurants are wonderful. Everything we needed to enjoy our special event was right there for us, so we just parked our car in their covered garage and indulged ouselves. Special kudos to the pool attendant-I think his name was Hestor-he made sure that all of the guest were comfortable, and he did that in a very diplomatic way. We will return.

i enjoyed my stay at the marriott hollywood beach. the location was great and the hotel was recently rennovated. from the outside it doesn't look very nice, but once you go inside it's nice. the pool was perfect and we were always able to find a place to sit. the room was clean (which is very important to me) and the staff were friendly. i would definetly return to this hotel my next visit to hollywood florida.

A cruiseline booked this hotel for us as a pre-cruise hotel stay for one night. We arrived exhausted from the airport @ 2:30pm and were told our room was not ready....and that it would be ready in about an hour. The desk clerk requested my cell phone number and assured me he would call me when our room was ready. We went out to sit in the restaraunt to wait....an hour went by and no call...another hour went by and no call...at 4:30pm I went to the desk to inquire...the room was still not ready. I waited another hour and checked again and FINALLY at 5:30pm, after sitting and waiting for 3 hours...our room was ready. We had a room with 2 double beds, nothing fancy....it was an average room. No complaints about it. However, we made one local call to order a pizza and were CHARGED for the call.
We were also told by the cruise line that a free continental breakfast would be provided....this did not happen....we were offered a continental breakfast for $10/person + 22% tax for room service....we declined. I suppose there was some mis-communication somewhere...but in all we were not happy with our stay at this hotel and we will not return.

  • Disliked — room was not ready, charged for local call, breakfast way overpriced, everything is overpriced

We needed a home away from home while visiting relatives but with the amenities to be a mini-vacation, packing a lot of relaxation into two nights. I expected a chain hotel experience with the price dictated by the location on the beach. What we got instead was a boutique hotel feel, extremely friendly and solicitous staff, and a great room on the 10th, northside. It is amazing that this was apparently a HoJo's 3 years ago. Its classy inside reminds one of 1920's era hotels. Someone should give the room decorator a prize, because, at least in our room, the attention to detail and striving for an overall effect were outstanding. We immediately relaxed and felt right at home. Last night we were in a 4-star hotel in Boston, which was nice, but didn't measure up to the same standard.

Just returned from the Hollywood Beach Marriott. We arrived on a Monday and left on a Friday. We had a 4 1/2 year old and a 3 year old.

Our Summary:
Marriott
======
Very nice, great location. I agree with most reviews in that the staff was really nice and friendly. They treated us great. I didn't think it was that far from places to eat. Maybe a 10 minute walk. which seems short when walking along the Broadwalk. Pool is advertised as heated but was too cold to spend much time in it. Hotel staff will bring you drinks to the beach. Hotel prices for beer seemed good, but mixed drink prices seemed high. We got a very good price on Expedia (50% off) and I would stay again at that price, but not sure i would pay the full price. Breakfast buffett was nice, there are also places along the Broadwalk that offer a better price, just not buffetts.

Broadwalk
=========
Awesome. Many places to choose to eat. We saw Greek, Armenian, Turkish, Italian, Mexican, and plenty or all-american food and seafood. All the places seem like family owned and friendly. The Kids loved walking up and down the Broadwalk.

Beach
=====
Very wide and sand is not full of shells, so it is comfortable to walk on the beach. Kids enjoyed the ocean and the sand.

Just returned from a one night stay at the Marriott Hollywood Beach following a cruise and couldn't wait to write a quick review. I'm not sure when I have encountered so many nice people in one location along with an excellent facility. We requested an early check-in. We arrived at 9:00 a.m. after getting off a cruise and the rooms were not ready (completely understandable). They took our cell number to call us when the room was ready, stored our luggage, offered us a complementary breakfast, made us welcome at thier pool which provided ice water and later a skewer of frozen grapes. After some time at the pool we went to their restaurant for lunch, which was very enjoyable and all reasonablly priced. We were called around noon to get into our room. The next morning we had an early flight out so we were downstairs by 6:00 a.m. The restaurant didn't open until 6:30 but the waitress told us to come on in, she had things almost ready and we could enjoy what she had out as well as eggs to order or omlets. Very nice breakfast buffett. Rooms were very nice. I will definately stay at this hotel again. Taxi prices from the cruise and the airport ran about $25.00 each way
