hollywood Diplomat Hotel

Has anyone out there got any recent reviews or pictures of this hotel, as we are staying there next month. Also any advice on off site dining or night clubs close by?

Many thanks in advance.

I stayed there a couple of years ago when it first opened. It's a very nice, first-rate hotel. Be sure and eat at Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant, 400 North Ocean Drive (about a mile North of the hotel). They have fantastic food and great views of an intercoastal waterway with lots of boat traffic.

We are there over Easter Weekend and are hoping it meets our expectations. From mixed reviews here at Trip Advisor it sounds like the management is not a kindly set of people. They cater to the large meeting/convention trade, which tells you a lot.

Because it is a Starwood Hotel, you can gain status by joining Starwood's Preferred Guest Program and booking there. Request an upgrade at check in if available, and most often you will get it. (Have the reservationist put it in the notes of your resv.)

Construction seems to be a problem on both sides of the hotel, so higher floors might be the answer.

You know there is no beach, right?

I just learned that you can take the Ft. Lauderdale water taxi to and from the Diplomat and to South Beach to avoid driving.

Good pictures at the site: www.diplomatresort.com/Public/index.asp

When are you going? Have fun.......
