“Very Pleasant”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

I got to say, I stayed here for 5 days of a conference, and it was just perfect. Clean and well kept rooms, friendly staff, above average fitness room, and 2 minutes walk from the beach. Also, they have a very underrated pool and lounge area. It sits on the back of the hotel, right along side one of the coastal water ways. There was nothing better then heading out there after a long day, going for a swim, having a drink and watching the boats go by. I recommend this hotel to any and all.

PS it also seemed like a good hotel for families.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share that nice review with us. It's great to hear how much you enjoyed our amenities even though you were here on business.
Hopefully, you'll keep us in mind for the next family vacation :)

When I saw this hotel as we approached it from over the bridge I said “I don’t want to stay here” - This was so unfair as the hotel, staff and location are great.

The reception staff were welcoming, very polite and very helpful. They are very professional and nothing was too much trouble.

In the lobby there is a small shop selling eats, drinks and Starbucks coffee.

There ar 3 lifts so you rarely have to wait for one.

We had a 2 rooms – a fab corner room with 2 balconies, a huge very comfy bed, massive shower and a view of the sea through the buildings opposite, and a room with 2 double beds which was slightly smaller and only 1 balcony but with all the same amenities.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and the housekeeping staff were lovely, always saying good morning with a smile.

The rooms were well equipped with hairdryer, TV, kitchen area including a fridge, plenty of wardrobe space and hangers, toiletries and lots of towels.

The pool area is great, it overlooks the inland water way and has palm trees galore, a huge freeform pool and enough loungers and cabañas to seat an army. The Hot tub was very hot and the pool a few degrees cooler. Next to the pool was the Tiki bar, a lovely spot for a few cocktails before or after dinner, and a great place to have dinner if you are not looking for posh nosh. The food was very nice and the burgers were really tasty with really good fries and the best coconut shrimp I had all holiday.

There is a bistro in the hotel with tables by the pool, but a fence between diners and pool spoilt the look so we preferred to dine on the waters edge at the Tiki bar.

The valet service was quick and the guys worked really hard, the concierge was very helpful and gave us tonnes of information about the locality including the water taxi which we took up to Fort Lauderdale for lunch(1 hr).

There is a beach across the road, just walk down the path between the buildings. There is nothing there except beach but you are only 2 mins from the hotel and the 7/11 next door.

The Hollywood trolley bus runs from outside the hotel and is $1 per ride. It goes to Hollywood beach and drops you off near the theatre on the beach where each night there is live music and dancing under the stars!
See http://www.gohollywoodfla.com/events.aspx for details.

This hotel overlooks a road and I had read some reviews saying it was noisy, well we had no trouble sleeping in fact the rooms are really quiet and the double glazing works really well as does the AC.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are huge. We overlooked the front and had a sea view.

The hotel is one block from the beach and has an amazing pool on site. The staff could not be friendlier and the rooms are huge. What a great treat to stay here!! I really could not find one thing negative about it so thank you for making our vacation fun and relaxing.

We arrived on April 5th. I was extremely impressed by the professional demeanor of (Mr). Chris, who dealt with a very unpleasant woman ahead of me at check-in. I was amazed he was able to remain unflustered, courteous, and professional during her tirade about minor issues (for example, when he asked her for her ID, she demanded that he return her credit card first, as if to suggest he was up to no good). I work in a hotel, and I can appreciate how difficult this must be for the Front Desk folks to deal with all day long.

Since I am a Priority Club member, Chris was able to upgrade me to a slightly larger room (912) which had two balconies, a nice kitchenette, and a very comfy king bed. We got a rollaway for our son and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed the views and sunset over the Intracoastal waterway. The microwave, refrigerator, and sink were a huge plus. (The 7-Eleven next door has plenty of snacks and some prepared foods, if you want to economize.) And the hotel's dining facilities were fine -- better than the typical hotel restaurant.

This is a nice hotel with a terrific pool and patio area. The tiki bar serves decent food. The pool was really large and clean, and there are plenty of lounge chairs. There is enough space in the pool to swim laps, even with lots of kids playing in other sections of the pool. You can also enjoy the view of the waterway and the sunset from here. A small quibble: the hot tub was sort of lukewarm, and the bartender did not honor the happy hour pricing.

Our requested wake-up call was executed flawlessly; it's not their fault it had to be at 5AM to catch my flight!

Free Internet worked great for our laptop and iPad. TV was nice size. We requested a new remote and they brought it quickly.

Although the Crowne Plaza Hollywood is really located closer to Hallandale Beach, you can get to the Hollywood Beach and Broadwalk very quickly. We had a very pleasant bike ride -- about a mile on the street (A1A), and then a couple of miles on the beautiful paved Broadwalk. We did not get a chance to look for shells in Bal Harbour (which the guide book had suggested), but we did find a few nice shells and pieces of coral at Hollywood Beach. There were lots of modest restaurants on the Broadwalk; we had a late "ice cream lunch" at Edy's. Overall the beach was prettier than what we found earlier in our trip at Key Largo, South Beach, and Mid-beach (Miami -- Fontainebleau area).

The hotel was very clean throughout, and the valet and bell staff were very friendly and helpful, too. Self-parking was easy and at $16, was about half what we paid at the Fontainebleau, where we had to wait for more than a half hour for our car to be retrieved. At the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach, you have both options; and both self and valet lots are directly adjacent to the hotel building, so no big wait.

Again, kudos to Chris!

Room Tip: Be nice to the person checking you in. The job is a lot more complicated than it appears. Join Pri...

Dear Zipdedoo,

We can't express enough how much we appreciate your complimentary review!
Thank you for being so patient at check in and recognizing Chris for a job well done. He is a key player on our team and he will receive the kudos deserved for his excellent service.
We also appreciate your loyalty as a Priority Club member and it's only right that you received the best room available, which we're happy you enjoyed.
It's unfortunate you did not get a chance to look for shells on Bal Harbour beach but as you said, Hollywood Beach has some pretty nice ones as well :)
Again, thank you very much for sharing your experience and we are certainly looking forward to welcoming you back. Please email us directly at sales@cphollywoodbeach.com should you need any assistance when making your reservation. See you soon!

I am very pleased to say that our stay in the month of July 2011 was one of the best experiences that we have seen in awhile. Upon arrival at the FLL airport, we were greated with a friendly escort that drove us to the Crowne. Hotel check-in was a breeze! Very friendly staff, excellent room (very spacious), pool was amazing, and the beach is in very short walking distance! The room was very cleaned and upon entering and exiting the hotel we always felt welcomed. We were so pleased with the amenities and the environment, we have reserved another stay this May 2012. This hotel will exceed expectations!
