“Best place on Hollywood Beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I did a great deal of research of the area before booking this hotel.
It was in the perfect spot on the boardwalk, not too far or close to most of the action.
It had a nice pool, whirlpool, restaurant/bar with indoor and outdoor seating.

Once we arrived we were certain that we made the right choice.
The entire staff was excellent and helpful and always smiled and said hello when you passed them in the hotel.

The room was clean and comfortable. We had an ocean view that overlooked the pool and the beautiful ocean; but we could also see the river and part of the city which was nice too. The in-room safe and TV actually worked.

The pool was warm and clean. I only went in the whirlpool once because it was very hot when we were there. It was nice as well.

The food at the restaurant was outstanding. I especially enjoyed the individual pizzas.

We had a nice deal in our room rate where we received 2 beach chairs with pads and an umbrella or cabana for most of our stay. That worked out great because we loved being on the beach.

Hollywood Beach itself is a lot of fun for everyone. The water is wonderful! The boardwalk is GREAT. You can rent bikes on the boardwalk. It's also a good walk. We also went into Greater Fort Lauderdale and visited a couple of nice spots. The Festival Flea Market Mall in Pompano Beach is a great place to hang out if it rains. Boomers in Dania Beach is fun too. They have mini golf outside and an expansive arcade inside. There are several other places we would have liked to visit - Riverwalk, Swap Shop, and the Imax 3D theater if we had more time. Next time for sure!

From the minute we drove up to the Valet, the entire stay was perfect. The entire staff was excellent, the room was perfect, and hotel is the best on the beach. We really enjoyed the boardwalk every morning, and the pool and beach during the day. Thank you to the entire staff at the Marriott Hollywood Beach Hotel.

This hotel is located on the Hollywood Broadwalk which offers 2.5 miles of eateries, parks, activities, rentals but mostly SAFETY. This stretch of the area is so isolated from the rest of the city, it felt very safe for the kids to come and go and find other playmates! Absolutely a must do for get away to the beach with a young family. The ocean was beautiful. Most surprising was the food at the property.

Historic Hollywood was not worth the outing to us but one should see for themselves.

Did not stay long enough in this interesting and chilled-out resort. The hotel commands a fantastic location right on the boardwalk surrounded by cafes and shops. The boardwalk is 'full of life' especially at night and it is great to sit with a drink watching the world go by. The staff at the Marriott Hollywood Beach are very attentive and welcoming. The hotels restaurant is a great place to eat al fresco. Our tip is to beware of what room is allocated on check-in. Despite requesting a high level room, we were allocated a room overlooking a flat roof and air-conditioning units which was not very pleasant. However, on speaking with the check-in staff, they were more accommodating and not only were we allocated a room with a partial ocean view but were moved into a room with a fantastic view the following day. The rooms are clean and spacious with all the amenities required for a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors (levels 5 and up) have the better views.

Louise, "chilled out" is a great definition of our hotel, the location, and the atmosphere that surrounds us. Thank you for your description! Hollywood is becoming the true destination vacation location between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, as Hollywood is so close to it all, yet you feel far enough away for a tranquil, "chilled out" vacation. Cheers!

We chose this hotel because it was an oceanfront property. Immediately when we checked in the staff was amazing, we were upgraded to an oceanfront room on the 10th floor with a spectacular view. Needless to say we were celebrating a birthday. The concierge lounge, the pool, the fitness room, the restaurant, the valet, the boardwalk, the views, the refrigerator, the checkin & checktout process and again the staff just amazing. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone visiting this part of Florida. We stayed here two nights and then went over to South Beach for two nights. We felt like we were on two separate great vacations. The walk along the boardwalk, the music, the people, the biking, rollerblades, ice cream, shops, night air, just amazing. Vacations are all about the experience, the hotel stay and the company you keep, so if your with someone who picks at every little negative thing about a hotel stay then you won't have fun. We had a fun time and look forward to going again July 2014 and hopefully run into the same staff and have the same room, suite 1001. Thanks Hollywood Beach Resort.

Room Tip: try a get a corner suite it has a a balcony on the front and side of the hotel, just spectacular.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and left on July 3. The hotel staff was great! Everyone was friendly and helpful. The location was right on the boardwalk and within walking distance to restaurants.
Our room was actually really spacious! King bed and a pull out couch and chair, plus a desk and chair. The room was actually too big- the tv was a bit far if you're laying on the bed! We also had a little balcony though the view wasn't really anything special.
We ordered food from the cafe by the front desk and at the hotel restaurant. 3 of the 4 meals were really good. The turkey burger was bland :/
Hotel pool was crowded on the weekend and the pool area itself was tight. When there weren't a ton of kids jumping in and splashing, it was nice to relax there.
The beach was great!! You can take the pool towels to the beach, but a lot of them seemed to be stained? We overheard someone trying to exchange a soiled towel for a clean one and the staff member said ' we're not supposed to but I'll do it for you'. Thought that was a bit odd.
The location is great if you're staying in the hotel and not leaving, otherwise I'd recommend having a car. I believe it was $17/ day for parking. We went out 2 or 3 nights and paid more than that in cab fares.
We asked if we could have a late check out on our last night but were told we have to call the morning of our check out to ask. That was a bit of a nuisance because we couldn't really plan our last day.
Other than for minor details, our stay was great and was the staff. I'd definitely stay here again!
