The Crowne Plaza Hollywood styles itself as a tropical hideaway on the shores of east coast Florida, with an infinity pool that seems to span the horizon. The waterside Lava Tiki Bar serves up Caribbean grilled dishes and umbrella cocktails, and personal treatments are available either next door at Renewal Spa or with in-room massages to order. Grab a sandwich for the beach at Cool Beans coffee shop, serve yourself with the in-suite kitchenettes, or catch up on emails with available Wi-Fi throughout the hotel (fees may apply).
Key facts
  • 311 guestrooms
  • Large infinity pool
  • Jacuzzi
  • 2 restaurants: Lava Tiki bar, Elements Bistro
  • Refrigerator and microwave in-room
  • Fitness center
  • Spa access
Neighborhood
With stops for both the water taxi and the Hollywood Trolley service just outside, the Crowne Plaza Hollywood is well-connected to the shops and eateries at the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, along with the green West Lake area to the north in Dania Beach. The Aventura Mall provides retail therapy, from Breitling to Dior, roughly an eight-minute drive from the hotel. There's always something fascinating going on at the nearby Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, with contemporary exhibitions, performances, and day camps for kids.
Hints and tips
  • The hotel is very child-friendly, but guests who prefer peace and quiet should request a room that is on the aptly-named "Quiet Zone Floor."
  • Guaranteed to be kid-free, this floor also has noise restrictions, so you won't be disturbed by early morning or evening housekeeping.
  • NOTICE: The patio deck at Elements Restaurant will be closed for repaving from 2 to 12 September 2014. Some noise disturbances are expected from 2 to 5 September during daytime.

Fantastic and very good location

In front of the beach, near to the mall, and all the places I was interested. Good internet connection, nice pool and excellent breakfast. I recommend it and I come back

Clean enough, comfortable

Clean room except strand of long hair between sheets when pulled back cover and smudged red lipstick on bathroom door. Wore flip-flops in shower- grout breaking. Beds comfortable. Quiet. Location very urban. Not beachy at all. Parking costs extra- for valet or self-parking in hotel lot. Very glad we booked for just one night.

Worst Hotel Experience in 15 yrs.

When walking in with my carry on to check in I get asked "what do I want', well, maybe I want to check in, can't you tell? Was given room 234 next to gym, could not sleep, people start banging weights at 6am, the last ones after midnight . . . Asked of ran other room and was told there are non, a lie, you could book rooms online. The bathroom - for disabled, was so 80's it looked dated and dirty. Also had a pageant contest this weekend, also on 2nd floor, people gathering there and chatting, shouting on Sunday morning at 9am. The absolute worst experience, have no idea how people rated this hotel so highly, totally misleading.

Heaven on Earth

If you are looking to relax by a pool than this is the place for you. The pool itself is quite large and great for young children and adults. As you lounge by the pool you can look at the boats going up and down the intercoastal waterway. The location of the hotel has easy access to main roads. The beach is a short walk across the street. The water taxi and trolley car both have stops at the hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. I used the gym and saw a staff member wipe every piece of equipment - that isn't done at the gym I belong to at home! Good food. Only negative is the daily parking fee. Would highly recommend!!

Take a ride on the water taxi up the intercoastal waterway --very relaxing, beautiful views of the homes, businesses and boats along the way. Try to go after 6:00pm and catch the sunset and everything lit up on the return trip. Plus the fee is discounted after 5:00pm.
