Recently spent 40 days at this property in Hollywood. The best feature of this place is the fabulous pool area and the no-pressure nice staff around at all times. Daniel or Dan and the rest of the guys in the pool area really make it nice....lots of comfortable lounges, towels, nice Tiki Bar, food service at the pool, nice views...the hotel also has an excellent breakfast buffet and again highlighted by friendly and efficient service. Our room was 912 which has south, east and west exposure and offers great views of the Intracoastal, the opening of the bridge, boat traffic as well as two balconies. The room was bright and spacious but the one down side of this nice corner room was that the pop machine is basically right outside your door and it gets a lot of night-time use and there is no siund proofing of any kind. Also, the cleaning staff seem to congragate in tha area and create noise by loud conversatiion which diminished markedly once we had mentioned the problem to the front desk.
The property itself has a bit of the tired feel to it ( it's an old Holiday Inn site) and needs updating and I would rate it a 3 to 3.5 but the pool area and the staff are at least a 5 and thus my overall rating of four. It is decent value when compared to other hotels in the area and I would stay there again but for a shorter duration.
