“On the beach/boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We spent a long weekend at this hotel for a small family reunion. The front desk was eager to help us with getting all our rooms close to each other. (4 rooms). The pool is on the small size but the beach and ocean are right there too for sunbathers. Rooms/bathrooms have been recently done and I enjoyed the large glass enclosed shower. The balconies are a bit small only 2 people can fit on the balcony comfortably. The hotels restaurant is lovely with a large menu selection to appeal to everyone with entertainment outside. Nice area to walk around the boardwalk with casual dining and entertainment within walking distance.

Room Tip: Request a room above the fifth floor. Corner rooms have 2 balconies.

I recently stayed at the Hollywood Beach Marriott with my sisters and we were very satisfied. The hotel was in good shape, clean, and in a great location. The employees are constantly busy cleaning the beach sand which is brought in by people and children. The rooms are a good size and do have a refrigerator which is always a nice perk! The balcony's are extremely small but it does afford the luxury of stepping out to view the beach and boardwalk. We had a room on the 8th floor with a view of the beach, pool, and the intracoastal which was wonderful! We only ate breakfast in the restaurant one morning and it wasn't bad. We did have room service bring coffee each morning as this is a reasonable price and the service was always prompt and courteous. The one downfall is that they do not provide airport shuttle service even though it's only 7 miles to Ft Lauderdale airport! This is a bit baffling! Overall a wonderful stay and would stay again if I'm ever in the area.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room on a higher floor, it seems to be a better view!

The customer service at the front desk was beyond RUDE! When ask to speak to a supervisor I was told "the supervisor will tell you the same thing I'm telling you, so you're wasting your time", while speaking with a supervisor the front desk clerk Tiffany Dodson was ask to dismiss herself. She walk away came back with hand on hip and interjecting while the supervisor was speaking. Needless to I cancels the room and stayed else where. Never experienced the someone so rude.

Restaurant is expensive, rooms are nice if you get one of the not so many rooms on the back overlooking the ocean problem is there expensive. Bed is horrible although big the sheet is like a thin blanket and the air conditioning is impossible to control. Breakfast also expensive not worth paying for go to a McDonald's and it's better and cheape

I have traveled the world and pretty much stay at Marriott exclusively to collect points that I use for travel often. I have been from Singapore to Hawaii to New York to Paris and in my humble opinion, this is by far the best Marriott hotel on the planet. Though I have not stayed at every Marriott, out of the ones I have stayed at, there is no comparison.

It's not the absolutely gorgeous views for the Oceanfront Suites, the amazing sunrise over the Atlantic ocean or the fact that you are literally 20 feet from the beautiful, sandy beach, just a short stroll across the boardwalk until your toes are meshed with the silky sand, that makes this the best. It's also not the amazing food at the Latitudes restaurant and open air Tiki bar (by the way, they have a crispy shrimp appetizer that rivals Bone Fish's Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp) or the wonderful snacks and desserts that they serve in the Concierge's lounge nightly or the
spacious pool and hot tub that continuously make us frequent this home-tel...it is, by far, the staff.

I am a tough customer, always looking for an angle to get a free upgrade or extra reward points because of some screw up in reservations, or perhaps a free night due to a dirty room but you are not going to find that here. From the front desk to the sales folks, to the wonderful people who work in the restaurants, even housekeeping and maintenance peeps you have to deal with on occasion, everyone makes you feel like you belong and are family. You can tell this hotel is premium by the fact that every time we check in and we do it often here, we see the same faces, still there, still smiling and joking and making your stay, from the moment you arrive until you leave, an absolute pleasure. I have NEVER had a single bad experience here at all and from what I have seen in the past, I believe that will continue in the future.

Whatever the management of this hotel s doing, Marriott should mimic worldwide because I can tell you that I have stayed at some very expensive Marriott hotels where you would expect impeccable service and that is not the case. Here at the Hollywood Beach Marriott, though the hotel is not the most lavish and ornate, you are treated like family and that is truly what sets the hotel above the rest. Ignore the nit-pickers who say things like "the bed was hard" "there were marks on the walls" "TV is too small" as if that what you are looking for, stay home. No place is perfect but to us, this hotel is close.

We, family of 4, stay at this hotel several times a year and will continue to enjoy the sun & pool, biking on the boardwalk, late night walks on the beach and morning coffees from their shoppe downstairs for years to come.

Thanks for making our stays there memorable and fun. See you in September!

Room Tip: South side, high floor, oceanfront rooms best view.

First of all.. As you check in they with hold $250.00 off your credit card. Which they didn't tell us at the time of booking.. It's a policy. Maybe it should be mentioned at the time of booking.. This was our first time in this area. It's a very busy area. The hotel is nice. The food is very good. The boardwalk is very busy. The beach is nice. Beware if those Jelly Fish that are everywhere.. Not knowing what they were for the first few days I'm glad no one steped on what I thought was a big piece of slime. They are on shore, in the wet sand. Would have been nice to have seen a WARNING sign explaining what they were and the dangers of them.. Overall it was a nice vacation.
