“Marriot Hollywood Beach -- a winner again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I just visited this hotel this past weekend (Feb 2 to 4) for the second time. I visited about five years ago and it was just as pleasant this time around if not more so. We arrived way early to get the maximum beach time and were happily surprised to find that they had a room ready for us at 9:00 am (check-in is regularly at 4:00 pm!). I had called ahead about checking in early, but I really didn't expect that early! They also upgraded us to include two free breakfast vouchers for their fantastic buffet. Both days we were so full we didn't even need lunch! The gentleman from Dubai who checked us in (didn't catch his name -- I guess we were distracted that his name-tag said where he was originally from) was super nice. But then, everyone is super nice at this hotel. Employees say hello, make jokes, chit-chat -- it's obvious they must treat people who work here right -- you just can't fake that sort of pleasantness. Special additional call outs to Victoria who brought us drinks on the beach, the gentleman who worked at the pool (who is going to classes at night, again didn't catch the name), and the cheerful lady working on Saturday night at the front desk who recommended Le Tub restaurant (awesome place!). They allowed us to check out late on Monday (our flight was that night) -- and no one seemed to mind that we hung out at the beach and the pool for the rest of the day. The free snacks and beer party ahead of the Superbowl was a fun touch, too. Hollywood Beach is a great place -- and this is a great hotel. Some folks may fault that there were things like a missing knob on our dresser and it might not be super sleek modern decor -- but who cares? Clean and classy and comfortable ... a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room toward the front of the hotel (the beach side of the elevators) on a high floor. Ours...

It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel for business. Without exception, every single staff member we came in contact with was amazingly friendly and so helpful. Many went out of their way to address any need, no matter how minor. The room was super clean and we really enjoyed looking out over the balcony in the evenings. We only booked a partial view, but liked it just the same as it also affords a view of the other body of water on the opposite side in addition to lovely views of the beach. We had never visited Hollywood, FL, but if work takes us here again, we would totally stay at this hotel. Seconds from the beach and right on the boardwalk, it's a short walk to restaurants but just far enough from the public park area that you still have a resort feel rather than tourist trap when you head back to your room for the night. The room itself was comfortable, had nice amenities like a working room safe and coffee/tea maker, etc. There is a bar, restaurant, and coffee shop on the lobby level if you prefer not to leave the hotel or need to get work done. This area of the town is simply charming and reminds me of "old Florida" which I love. We also felt safe walking and running on the boardwalk and beyond for exercise/fitness. My only suggestion would be that they check the beds for age (mattress and "creakiness") as someone in our party had an older bed in their room. Our bed was delightful and we all agreed that the linens were really fresh and comfy. Great escape from the snowy midwest!

I have been having a string of bad luck lately with Marriott properties. This place was very nice especially the staff who went out of their way to make our meetings work well. The concierge lounge was nice, well staffed, and the food was what I have grown to expect. The bar area outside and the restaurant are top notch. I would recommend this place as convenient to FLL airport for business or pleasure. Not really a resort but a full service Marriott right on the beach.

We stayed here for a week and were very pleased with everything, especially the location, the room w/ a balcony overlooking the ocean. Yes, it was spendy, but we were treated so well, from the minute we checked in. The room was very comfortable and being able to walk every day, in or out of the ocean, was a huge plus; we didn't need to rent a car b'cuz we were right at the beach!!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room on the South side if you want to get sun all day!

Every staff in this hotel is very friendly and helpful. We were greeted with smiles by the valley parking staff, to wonderful reception service and maintenance staff were at our assistance minutes after we made a request. Our room was very clean. Best of all, we could hear the ocean waves and had an amazing view of both the canal and the ocean. Their beachside restaurant offered excellent meal choices at a very reasonable price. I love Hollywood Beach and will choose it over Miami South Beach without any hesitation.

Stayed at this resort for one night and two days after getting off a seven day Carnival Cruise. This resort was wonderful, the room was huge and well kept. Service was great and the location couldn't be better with Hollywood Beach right in your backyard. We had a room with a balcony so that was a plus as well. The resort had an outdoor pool and hot tub and plenty of lounge chairs. Food at the restaurant was excellent but a little overpriced. The "broadwalk" was great as well, so much to do! (be careful of the bikers and rollerbladers) There are also jet ski rentals and cabana/lounge chair rentals at the beach as well. Watched the football games at a bar called Nick's. Food there was great and it was very comfortable environment. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Spent the weekend at this Marriott property and could not have been more pleased. Not great weather, rain, but the staff here made it great. There was not one staff member, including painters, servers, front desk who did not make it a point to say hello, hold the door, or just be courteous and friendly. One of the better experiences we have had. The manager, Mr. McDonald can be proud of his property and his staff. Thanks!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a balcony.
