“Outstanding staff makes all the difference!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great location right on the Hollywood Broadwalk right on the beach.

Okay, I will admit the hotel is a little bit dated, though it is well kept. The room was large and had a partial beach view. The concierge lounge is far too small for the number of people using it, and in my experience tends to run low of breakfast items when it gets busy.

What really made this hotel stand out in my mind was the staff. Everyone we dealt with out super friendly, helpful, and went out of the way to make us feel welcome and at home. At the restaurant, Trey was an outstanding waiter, possibly one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

We just got back from the Marriott Hollywood Beach hotel earlier today. It was my wife, myself and two young kids (5 & 3). The hotel's lobby, restaurant and common areas are very nice with a classic look. The room was just fine and they had a decent fitness center, for a hotel.

The beach is terrific and the staff were great. Everyone was very friendly. We also enjoyed the boardwalk. Unfortunately, we didn't find any decent restaurants within walking distance on the boardwalk. However, they had a few fun bands about 10 minutes away on the boardwalk which was fun.

The only two things we didn't enjoy - the pool area is small and really isn't very kid friendly. It is okay but not great for little kids. Second, we reserved a king bed because we had heard the beds / bed frames were too tall for small kids. In other words, we were afraid our kids would fall out of bed. With a king bed one kid could sleep with us and we would have room to put one on the floor. Unfortunately, we were given two double beds which limited floor space. Oh well, not a big deal but a little inconvenient.

We've stayed at this hotel 3 times in 3 years, and have never been disappointed with any aspect. The staff is friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the restaurant to the outdoor bar. It is clean, fresh and crisp all day long. Also a great location, right on the beach, with a long boardwalk perfect for early morning walks or runs.

This is our fifth year at the Hollywood Beach Marriott and we are always very pleased with the accommodations and the level of service. We will continue to use this hotel for our Florida vacations?

The restaurant is excellent, as well, and we enjoyed breakfast on the broadwalk overlooking the ocean each morning.

Room Tip: Low numbered rooms on each floor (there are 10) have the best ocean views, although all have nice vi...

This is an old Marriott ,right on the beach. Location is perfect,dining within walking distance. Bathrooms have been updated and the amenities are very nice. The best part were the staff who were just super! It is a little pricey.

We have visited this hotel for 3 weeks within the past year. We love it here!!! The staff here are all wonderful and take care of any need that you may have. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful and the views are amazing. Every morning after breakfast and every evening after dinner my husband and I love walking on the broadwalk. There is great live music on the weekends, a heated pool, and a great fitness room. The only thing that wasn't pleasant about our last stay was that there was a group of 100-200 15 year olds from out of the country that were very rude!! They showed up 2 days before we left. It was impossible to get an elevator, or swim at the pool or have a good spot on the beach. My husband and I had a great spot on the beach and then all the teenagers came out and laid within 5 feet of us and would kick sand on us when they ran around on the beach! They acted like they were the only people at the beach or at the hotel!! We were very disappointed how they were allowed to take over everything. Other than the teenagers, our trip was amazing! And we will be back but not at the same time of the year due to the large group. I also wish the spa would be reopened. I had a manicure and pedicure there during my first trip and it was wonderful, but it closed before my second trip. "penny"

Room Tip: The spa isn't open anymore. I went there on my first trip but it closed before my second trip.

This has always been one of my favorite hotels as have stayed here many times and even had a family reunion here. HOWEVER this time was different and disappointed in stay and managements response. Had 2 rooms reserved - one with 2 beds and one with a king. When got to rooms both had 2 beds and very far from ocean view. I went to front dest to see about a change - the desk clerk was downright hateful and not helpful at all so kept the rooms we had.
After returned from trip called hotel manager, initials JM, and got his voice mail so asked him to call me back. No response so did this again. Still nothing which is disappointing as I am a Marriott Platinum member and believe that if a property has a problem the least the manager can do he return calls. Apparently he believes differently. Any disappointed in him and stay. Can do better!!!

Room Tip: Try and get a room close to ocean front.
