“Very Impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2010

We were given several choices for area hotel to stay at for a recent military function, and chose the Marriot at Hollywood Beach. We were so very nicely impressed with our stay, for us and the rest of our family. Great restaurants, rooms and pool, with the beach so close. Ev- eryone was so pleasant and friendly. We look forward to returning. A great value!

I have stayed at Marriots all over and have had consistently good service, However, This place is like the trouble step child of the Marriot Family. Good Grief, I have never been so let down by service food and Unfriendly service. The staffs were so busy taking about where they were going after work. I was wishing they would ask me to go with.... because apparently they could not wait to leave. My bill was so padded with tips and Service fees I could have rented a house by the time I checked out 3 days early!!! OVERRATED!!! For this kind of $$ It's worth the difference go to the Diplomat.
Patron on the trouble Marriot step child. Good luck you guys!!! You will need it. ;)

We just spent a long weekend at the Hollywood Beach Marriot, and we had a great time. We have stayed at many Marriots over the years, and the staff at this resort are among the best. Two words to describe them are friendly and polite. We liked the boutique atmosphere of the resort and of course we liked its proximity to everything. If you are heading to the Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale area soon, pick this hotel over some of the larger resorts.

We stayed at the Hollywood Marriott for the last night of our trip to Florida. Having driven back from Key West to fly out of Ft. Lauderdale the next day, we didn't get to spend too much time on the beach for our one night stay. We did enjoy walking on the broadwalk and beach as well as spending some time pool side before the sun went down.

Things I liked about this hotel: Tthe bed (lots of pillows) and the large shower were nice as was their buffet breakfast. The pool area had a nice view and was convenient to the bar. We also took advantage of the broadwalk to go to a nice restaurant south of the hotel, which I believe was called the Sugar Reef Tropical Grill. We were able to print our boarding passes the night before from their free access computers. It was very convenient to the airport.

Things I didn't like: We had booked massages at their spa and I would not recommend them to anyone. Probably one of the worst I've ever had and to add insult to injury, they automatically add gratuity whether you want to tip or not. The rooms could be cleaner - there were water rings on the marble topped dresser and a stain on the carpet by the bed.

Overall, I think it's a nice choice for a short stay - just don't splurge on the frills like the spa.

Love this place, they are a short cab ride from the airport. Then you are in a beach environment with all the perks. Nice outside bar, fabulas pool, and on boardwalk.

Hollywood Beach is one of Florida's best kept secrets - a 2-mile long stretch of flagstone walkway, the Broadwalk, alongside the Atlantic Ocean - lined with shops, restaurants, bars, and quaint art deco condos. In the middle of this peaceful yet vibrant ambiance is the pearl that is the Marriott - really the only "brand" hotel on the beach. Location location! You step out of your gorgeous Tommy Bahama decor room (if you can tear yourself off the balcony!) and you are in the midst of the action. Be sure to check the lobby for some refreshing minted lime water after your walk! Or you can stay on your balcony, drink champagne, and watch the sea and sunset until the dramatic thunderstorms roll in. Too tired to drive or walk to a restaurant? Marriott's restaurant serves up a succulent menu with attentive service. Follow up with a relaxing dip in their beachside pool. This was a long Labor Day weekend to cherish and look forward to repeating again! Oh yes, your car will enjoy the cool, covered parking too!

My wife had a grueling week at work, so we decided to take a jaunt down to South Florida for some fun and relaxation. For years, that trip would have occurred on South Beach, but since we now have a 2 year old daughter, we looked for something a little more laid back. The Marriott at Hollywood Beach was the just what we wanted.

The location was amazing. Directly across from the beach. And when I say directly across, I mean you walk about 12 feet from the hotels pool and you are on the beach. The sand is not like what you find in the Caribbean, but neither is it the hard, lumpy, jagged, sand that we typically find in beaches up north. The beach was beautiful. The water was pretty clear and blue / bluish green. While my wife and I were content to soak up some sun, we took turns accompanying our daughter between building sand castles on the beach and swimming in the hotel pool with numerous other kids (which she loved).

The food was good, albeit overpriced (as should be expected in any hotel restaurant). We had the brunch one day and was not overly impressed. We then walked about a quarter mile up the boardwalk and found several great eateries that were also extremely inexpensive.

The room we had was more than sufficient. We had a view of both the ocean and the intracoastal. The deck was a little small/shabby but the room was clean and relatively large. They also provided a separate sleep pen for our 2 year old. The only negative was that our room was among the last that was remade (typically afternoon instead of morning when we were out at the beach - which we would have preferred - though we were later told we could request an earlier housekeeping visit).

Overall, between the location, the great service (pool guys were very helpful), the deliciously flavored water, and the cost (we booked a deal through hotwire including our airfare and 6 days for $315/person), we highly recommend it!
