We spent 4 days at this hotel in Nov. 2012 and were very pleased with the stay. We were lucky to get a room on the 7th. floor facing the pool and the intracoastal water way. The room was stylish decorated and spacious. The pool area is just fantastic. The pool is very big and is placed right next to the intracoastal water way. The hot tub is big and wonderful and very large. The only negative thing about this hotel is that you hear every sound from the corridor. The employees were very noisy out there which was very annoying when trying to get your children to sleep.

At the end of our cruise, because of flight cancellations etc we were lucky enough to gain an extra day. Thinking on my feet I asked would it be possible to stay in a different hotel and this one was suggested. As I had pre arranged shuttle to collect us from Port Everglades the journey was easy though the driver wasn't familiar with this hotel.

First impression was that the hotel is on the wrong side of the road, it's on the waterside apart from the beach side, however, the pool borders the water and is a lovely way to spend time watching the yachts and taxi's go by.

Our room was huge, and contained everything. The bathroom was also a good size but strangely the sink was outside the bathroom with a curtain to pull down. Wardrobe space was generous but our view was pretty poor, the car park. Sorry I can't remember the number but it would have been nicer to be either looking out front or back.

On the other side of the road is the beach, it isn't Hollywood Beach but Hollande beach which is just south of Hollywood. We walked up to Hollywood, then walked the boardwalk and continued not only up to the dog beach at the north end but almost ended up back at the port! It really is a lovely walk with lots of walkers, joggers, rollarbladers, cyclists etc. A terrific place to stop and watch the world go by.

We didn't eat in the hotel just had a drink that night.

The following morning we got a take away breakfast and headed to the beach to get some last minute heat and rays before we headed back to winter.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and if anyone was planning on a cruise and arriving a few days in advance this is a lovely area to stay in. The staff are pleasant and helpful, lots of local information in the foyer and a taxi back to Fort Lauderdale airport the following day cost $30

The hotel is a forty dollar ride from Fort Lauderdale airport. It is conveniently located for Hollywood Beach although there was nothing about the area that would encourage me back - except GGs Restaurant!
Facilities at the hotel were fine but even though we upgraded from the somewhat small executive room, the service could not be described as anything other than average. In short, the hotel is okay, basic, but I would not like to stay there too long

Room Tip: Tried two rooms before deciding to upgrade!

Dear PCliveR,

Thank you for taking the time to share this review with us.
We also love GG's restaurant :) but you have to try a few of the restaurants in Downtown Hollywood on your next visit. Our concierge can assist you with things-to-do and great restaurant recommendations.
Again, we greatly appreciate your feedback and hope to see you soon and next time, for a little bit longer stay!
Happy Holidays!

Nice Hotel and not really anything big to complain about. Pro's are the contemporary design (can not really expect that from a Crowne Plaza in US), friendly staff, nice pool. I also appreciated to receive free parking as Platinum Priority Club member. There are - by the way - plenty parking opportunities at the Hotel and disagree with statements made by other travelers that the Hotel does not have enough parking. They have plenty! I would personally always recommend having a car here because the really nice beach (North Hollywood state park) requires a car to get to - the beach opposite the hotel is no match.

The positive experience is rounded off by high quality HD TV, good beds and good A/C system.

Only two slight negatives I have: the rooms could be slightly cleaner (e.g. sofa in room has many stains, some dark spots in shower and corners in bathroom ... well ...). Overall not a disaster and nothing where I would say it was a major issue, but obviously I noticed and thus not ideal ... Last but not leas: the Internet connection is a disaster. Frequently line connection terminates and when it stays on it is terribly slow. Downloading from iTunes is impossible - about 7 hours for a 22 minute TV show - where the download always stalls after two hours. :-(

But again: overall quite positive experience and would definitely come back (again)

I had to travel to Ft Lauderdale for a convention and unfortunately the Westin was booked. The nearest hotel was just a block away.

The people and the facility at the Crowne Plaza were excellent. The place was clean and the pool area was beautiful and well maintained.

I would definately stay at the Crowne Plaza again.

I stay at a lot of the IHG hotels (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, etc) and unfortunately the chain in general seems to be on the downswing. But I was pleasantly surprised after checking into this hotel that my room was current, clean, stylish and very spacious. The biggest I've ever had in a Crowne hotel. Also had a balcony with a nice view of the city and could see the ocean which was a big plus. My favorite part of the experience was the pool though. Instead of a typical square pool it was large and curvy with palm trees throughout with a really cool infinity pool that was literally on the edge of the river. The nicest Crowne Plaza I've ever stayed at and really enjoyed my stay.

We had a fabulous time. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The pool area was clean and inviting. The rooms were very clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable. The view could have been better but I was down there for a wedding as opposed to a beach vacation. With a car, we had easy access to nearby areas. I would definitely stay there again.
