“Very Nice Property with an INCREDIBLE View!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We used points to stay here for a couple of nights after a recent trip to Key West and we really liked it! It's right on a "boardwalk" type of walkway they call the "Broadwalk" and it's a nice place to walk, exercise and people watch!

The pool was a welcomed refreshing place to be after a day on the beach. The beach is literally right outside the door! Their restaurant was lacking decent service though, as we did have breakfast there and the server wasn't too friendly.

Pillows in the room were horrible... too small and hard. Not sure if these were foam or not, but definitely not the typically plush pillow that other Marriotts have.

The beds are raised and really nice looking. Rooms are decorated very nicely too!

We stayed here for a long weekend, from Thursday to Sunday. The last time we came down we stayed at the Harbor Beach Marriott (also a good hotel) but decided to go with this one because of the location on the "broadwalk".

Very happy that we did - everything about our stay was great. For starters, we were able to get an upgrade to an ocean front room, and the view was spectacular. The room itself was very nice, and since it was a corner room it had two balconies. The mini-fridge in the room was also larger than usual, making it great to put beverages in.

We had access to the concierge floor, and on Friday morning we stopped up for the free breakfast. I expected a couple of muffins, but what we found was a full blown breakfast, more like what you would find at a Residence Inn. It was really good. Unfortunately they only do this during the week, so we didn't see this breakfast again. There are plenty of other places around though.

The only thing separating the hotel from the beach is the broadwalk, which isn't very big at all. We opted to rent the cabanas each day, which you can bill directly to your room. At $30, it's kind of pricey, but we didn't have a whole lot of options. The cabana was fairly roomy though, and the chairs were comfortable. You can get towels by the pool. The only downside is that you cannot move the cabanas, and they are a bit further from the beach than we would have liked.

There is a very nice bar/restaurant at the hotel facing the ocean. I guess we were being really lazy because we just ate lunch there each day. Good food and drinks, but more expensive than walking down the beach a little. On Saturday, they brought in a guitar player who we thought was pretty good. You could also hear him from our cabana.

We didn't sit by the pool. Why would you when this great beach was there? But it was great to be able to take a dip after you had been in the salt water.

Parking was pretty expensive ($17/day) but there really wasn't any other option.

All-in-all, a great stay, and we'd go back again.

We stayed in Hollywood when weather wasn't looking good in Key West. At the last minute we found the Marriott. Needless to say, we selected the best location in Hollywood and it you literally walk out of their premises directly onto the Hollywood Broadwalk and right on the beach. Perfect location to walk the Broadwalk and enjoy the many restaurants and shops. The staff at the Marriott was OUTSTANDING and the property is perfect. Highly recommend this location to anyone!

My husband and I stayed here 6/1-6/4 and we made the right choice! The hotel was very nice and clean. From the moment we drove up they were opening the door for us and getting our bags. We checked in around 10am do the room was not ready but we were told we could use the pool and they would call us. We had a partial ocean view and it was great. The balcony is a bit small but it was fine.
This hotel has a great location right on the boardwalk and there are plenty of little places to eat within a short walk. I will return with my kids another time. With looking at the other places on the boardwalk you will be happy with your choice of the Marriott. The people were all so happy and always wanted to help us!

My family and I just spent an absolutely fabulous weekend at the Marriott Hollywood Beach. The weekend was a special occasion and we had at least 30 people staying there at certain times. Pablo the concierge, was so helpful, Whatever you needed you just had to ask. Tina, the special events coordinator was great to book rooms with and went out of her way to help everyone. All of the staff was always smiling and saying hello and good morning. I've never experienced a more friendly staff. The rooms were adequate. They had some sort of a water view, either intercoastal or oceanview. The rooms were very clean. If I had to complain about anything it would be the food at the restaurant. I heard complaints that they mashed potatoes were the worst they ever had in their 85 years.
However, we did cater a party and the food for the party was quite good. There was a great selection of salads and entrees, including side dishes. If you are planning a family gathering, this is the place to go. There is a large area were there are couches and chairs were we all congregated each night. The pool and hot tub were great. The beach is so beautiful.
The accommodations are perfect and the staff more than makes up for the subpar food. Don't forget to ask for the group rates if you are booking ten or more rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront. You get two separate balconies.

We visit family in the area several times a year and this is the place we try to stay. We have stayed other places around the area but this is our favorite. The rooms are very nice. Right on the beach so we can rent a cabana and enjoy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We feel very safe here at this hotel and can enjoy walkingon the boardwalk. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the water. It is beautiful.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Hollywood Beach Marriott and were very happy with just about everything! The rooms were great, except that our sliding glass door did not lock nor shut all the way, so it was a little noisy. We let them know when we checked out, as it didn't really bother us, but we were afraid someone with small kids wouldn't be safe. I asked for a high floor when I booked my reservations, and they gave us what we wanted! The beach is right out the door and the boardwalk is awesome! We had dinner one night at the hotel and a dish I wanted was on their website menu, but not on their current menu in the restaurant. We were going to go somewhere else, but our server, Marthely said he would check with the chef and see what he could do. The chef had the ingredients for my dish so he said it was no problem to make! I thought that was very good customer service!!! I tried to tell the MGR on duty, but he never returned my call. The staff was attentive and very friendly and nice!! Will stay here again!!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor so you have the best view!

Thank you for the kind words, and we try to always accommodate you, the guest! Besides the brand new carpeting in every room, we have many, many other new items coming to enhance your stay even more.
All sliding glass doors are being updated/enhanced to open and close easily as well, due to that great salt air of the Atlantic Ocean. Cheers!
