The hotel is located in Hollywood just where the Hallandale Beach begins. The Crowne Plaza is 15 miles north of South Beach Miami and 11-12 miles south of Fort Lauderdale. The location is not the best if you want walking distance to restaurants and bars. It is about 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the restaurants at Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Walmart is at the other side of the bridge. Next to the hotel it is a 7-eleven with gas.
The room has a small kitchen area with microwave and refrigerator. Our room had two queen beds, comfortable for 2 adults and 2 children. The washbasin was not in the bathroom, placed just outside instead next to the beds. The room missing the possibility for 2 adults and 2 children to have a breakfast or lunch when there was no table inside and at the balcony there only was a small table and two chairs. The room should have two more chairs. There is a safety box in the room. TV.
That was sensitively between the rooms but even more towards the corridor. I have never experienced that much sensitively towards a corridor before in any hotel. I think it is some errors in the design of the doors when there was a big gap. But it was pretty quiet in the evenings and nights so it did not bother so much.
The public beach is just across the street, if you need sun chairs and umbrella the cost is 30-40 USD per day for the guest of the hotels.
The pool area is excellent. A large pool that fits all ages and gets never crowded, not even on the July 4 weekend when the hotel was full booked. There is a large Jacuzzi. Free sun chairs and pool towels. No resort fee charged. Nice location next to the channel.
The hotel has complimentary Wi-Fi but it is very slow.
Breakfast is served at the restaurant, continental costs 14 USD plus taxes and tip and full American breakfast 17.95 USD plus taxes and tip.
Self-parking at 17 USD plus taxes per night, both a parking lot and a garage. The garage was very affordable at heat days. Valet parking at 19 USD plus taxes and tip.
The hotel has a fitness center with all the equipment you need.
We stayed 14 nights and after 8 nights we discovered what we first believed was mosquito bites. But when we had counted 27 mosquito bites at my wife’s body we understood it was something else. I searched for bed bugs under the beds and found some. I contacted the front desk immediately and we were evacuated to another room after an inspection. The manager in charge called us and gave us an excuse immediately and we also got a really good compensation. There was no problem with bed bugs in the new room. We had some friends stayed at the hotel at the same time, they had no bed bugs in the two rooms they used.
I can recommend the hotel if you want affordable hotel in the Miami area.
