We stayed in Hollywood to attend the Orange Bowl. This is a great, convenient location for a football/beach vacation. Hollywood is pretty sketchy so there is not much to do in Hollywood, but Ft. Lauderdale is not far. We had rented a car, but after the football game, never used it. There was plenty to do along the Broadwalk that runs along the Beach. There is not much shopping except low-end T-shirt and beach clothing shops.
But there is any kind of restaurant or pub that you can think of, including Tiki bars with live music. We walked and bicycled and had a great time. We had dinner one night at a French restaurant, Sugar Reef, and it was excellent. Carlos, our waiter took very good care of us. I had to limit my shopping to the gift shop at the hotel, which carried a number of unique and fun jewelry and clothing items. I got great little gifts there to take back to friends and co-workers, even though I hadn't planned on shopping for them! They also have a spa, although I didn't get to try it. The Staff was most helpful and friendly. The only suggestion that I have is that they need to put full length mirrors in the rooms.
This is not the Westin, and you are not paying Westin prices. It was a great hotel on a beautiful beach.
