“Hotel Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

I can honestly say I have not stayed in a friendlier hotel.

I travelled from London with 8 friends for memorial weekend and although this hotel is 20-30mins drive to South Beach, the hotel staff and facilities more than made up for it.

Our rooms were always cleaned when we were out, shower and bath area were immaculate and the staff were helpful.

Akeelia, in particular made it her mission to make sure our stay was as good as possible, and really went above and beyond in assisting us with food, travelling and making sure our checkout time tallied up with our late flight. Elizabeth was great also, always great with one-liners that keep you laughing. All this adds to the atmosphere of a good hotel.

Concierge's Sherif and Kevin were great too, ask Kevin any question about Florida and he knows the answer.

All in all, great hotel.

I had the pleasure of staying at the CP for a recent business conference at the Westin down the street. The hotel is across from the beach but not on the beach, so if that's super important to you, be warned.

I had a nice corner room with peek-a-boo views of the ocean between buildings. The room was quite large and comfortable - it had a microwave and fridge which was a nice treat.

The sink was in the room (which was a little strange) but probably due to renovations with the shower/toilet in a smaller space this made it a bit larger.

I also had a chance to use the workout room. It had a fair number of bikes and treadmills but they were a little dated (not terrible just older) and it would have been nice to swap out a few of each for some ellipticals.

I had drinks by the pool (a bit pricey) but didn't eat anything at the hotel.

Room Tip: corner room (turn right from elevator)

We were expecting this hotel to be closer to the action in Hollywood also thought we could walk around but there was nothing to walk to so that was a huge disappointment. Upon check in we asked for a late check out as our flight wasn't until 8pm and we were given a 3pm complimentary check out which we really did appreciate. The hotel is nice, the pool area and Tiki bar are great. Our room, which was an Executive King, was nothing special, as a matter of fact we had a balcony which we were hoping would have more of a view of the intercoastal waterway but we saw more of the parking lot instead. The balcony was supposed to have a table and two chairs but there was only one chair and table on the balcony - I called to get another chair and we received a ballroom chair not an outdoor chair which didn't make for a comfortable outdoor seating! The kitchenette was nice to have but it didn't have any dishes, silverware, glasses, or any utensils just empty cabinets so even if you wanted to make something to eat, you had nothing to put it on. Not many channels on the TV. I would like to commend the front desk for their help in getting my boarding pass printed. The business center printer wasn't working and the internet was as slow as a snail. Glad I wasn't trying to work, however, the front desk clerk and I wish I got his name, allowed me to print my boarding pass on their printer. Also Kevin, the Concierge was wonderful. He never stopped running around getting people's bags, making sure that everyone had what they needed and couldn't have been nicer - he certainly is an asset to the hotel. Manny at the Tiki Bar was lots of fun and extremely nice. I am a priority club member and we were hoping for an upgrade but weren't offered one - i did write on my reservation that we would pay for an upgrade for a corner room especially when we say that they were the only rooms with really good views. The bathrooms had NO ventilation at all which is really weird - not even a fan and because the sink was outside the bathroom, there was no place to put anything down. The restaurant on site had a buffet breakfast which was not good - cold eggs, no bacon, nothing exciting and very bland and it wasn't cheap. we were going to have a late lunch or dinner there on our last day but they close between 2 and 5 so that was out. We ate at the Tiki bar and the food was pub fare and fine. There was no where else close or within walking distance to have a nice meal. Cabs seemed to cost $30 or more one way to anywhere. The $1 trolley was a treat and got us down to the boardwalk and restaurant area but it took forever to get back and we finally had to take a cab. All in all there were some nice things about the hotel, in particular the staff, but the location absolutely turned me off so we will not be back. We were so close to Hallandale Beach that the big hot air balloon that says "Welcome to Hallandale Beach" was right across the street - so we were just about out of Hollywood - I would suggest staying further North if you want to really enjoy the feel and vibe of Hollywood - the further South you stay, the further away from everything you will be.

Room Tip: get the corner suites and ask for an intercoastal view - this hotel is across the street from the be...

4 adults stayed for one night in May 2013. The staff were pleasant and helpful, rooms were clean and spacious and the grounds were well-kept. My daughters reported that the pool area was also good - unfortunately I had picked up a virus on the 'plane (thank you Delta airlines!!) so only really saw the inside of our room. There is also a handy gas station next door. I would have been happy to have stayed for longer.

We stayed here for a week and were very happy with every aspect of the hotel and staff. I was a little hesitant to book here after reading some negative reviews but we had an excellent stay with the exception of one little glitch that the management handled promptly. The room was spacious and clean with beautiful views of the ocean and waterway from the large balcony. All of the staff we encountered were very polite and helpful. Kevin, the concierge, was especially helpful in recommending restaurants to eat at and things to do. We would stay here again and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful week!.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors on the north side as the south side faces a highway bridge.

I just returned from a fun and relaxing mini vacation get away to Hollywood, FL. This was my second stay at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood. The service was even better than last time. They have a new pool bar with great bartenders and servers and the prices are reasonable too!

I feel this Crowne Plaza is best suited for adults, couples and families looking for a quiet hotel with a great location and everything you need within 15 min walk. Shopping for last minute supplies or snacks, great restaurants and bars (Check out the Upper Deck to watch YOUR favorite game) and the beech is right across the street from the hotel. The big hotel pool is perfect for kids or adults looking to laze around or swim.

The rest of the Hollywood Beech fun is less than a 15 min $1 trolley ride away, and the Adventura Mall is a quick cab ride away for shopping or a movie.

Staff were very helpful, the doormen could answer any question and the front desk staff were fast at check in and with any requests.

I will definitely be back

Room Tip: Ask for East or North Exposure

We stayed here for three nights on a little getaway and had a great time. I booked the hotel through priceline express deals. Even though it was a priceline reservation I asked for a higher lever room and was given a room on the 7th floor with a balcony overlooking the beach and waterway. Nice! The room was very large with a nice comfy bed and good linens. We had a small kitchen area with refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was nice also.
However the best part of the hotel is the pool. The water was so nice and warm. There were several seating options, some in the shade and some in the sun. You could also lay right out on the waterway and watch the boats go by. The little Tiki bar had fast and friendly people working there.
Also there is a water taxi pickup right at the pool area that goes right down to the boardwalk. Just get off by the bakery restaurant. The beach is also right across the street and there is public access. There is also a walmart close to the hotel but it is about 1/2 mile walk.
