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.

NOT a 4 star hotel as promised. Disappointed

Even from the outside, it's clear that this Crowne Plaza is NOT a 4 star hotel, as was promised. There's only 1 restaurant, which is relatively expensive (especially for breakfast) and it would have been nice to have a variety of restaurants to choose from as most 4 stars have. The room wasn't awful, but it wasn't good either. Our towel rack in the bathroom fell down TWICE, although the maintenance staff was on it, they obviously don't know what they're doing. Was very disappointed, and the hotel really needs something else for it to even be considered a decent hotel. The valet parking per day was $19! Self parking is $16 per day. That's crazy. All in all, I won't be back, and very disappointed.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The best thing we did was visit Butterfly World. Its about 35 minutes from the hotel, but it's AMAZING with live butterfly enclosures, and able to hand feed parrots.

Romantic Vacation For Two

Over all we had a great time. The staff was very nice and came through with our special request for early and late check in and out. They also allowed us to change rooms to a quieter floor after disturbances the first two nights, that were no fault of the hotel. The rooms were very clean and modern with very comfortable beds. The pool was fantastic and the Tiki bar was great. There is a trolley and a water taxi that can take you to most attractions and restaurants so a rental car was not really needed. The local business were very friendly and up beat, making our visit that much more enjoyable. The only negative experience was with one bartender at the tiki bar during a shift change. We were accused of not purchasing our drinks at the tiki bar and were asked to pour our drinks out in front of other guests. The staff apologized for their mistake but it was embarrassing for us. We are planning to return despite the one negative experience. One of the best vacations we have been on. Already planning another trip!!

Great stay

Great hotel. Good comfortable rooms with everything in them in working order. Great polite staff with the exception of the guy who works in the coffee shop who had a bit of attitude. I thought the parking fee was totally excessive especially as the fee for visitors was far less than guests especially when on a long stay. The trolley bus was very handy although 9.30pm for the last departure from the Boardwalk made you rush your dinner somewhat.

Rustic Inn in Fort Lauderdale. reasonably priced. an order of the garlic crabs easily feeds 2 people. you can feed the fish along the intercoastal afterwards 10 minute drive from the hotel and well worth it

Great Pool and View - where's the rest?

Hotel is nicely positioned in the Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale area. Great pool that sits on the intercoastal waterway. Rooms give you the basics only. No comfortable chair, vanity awkward and not enough space. Worst is their prices for brteakfast and lunch. $15 for a hamburger, $19 for a salad with chicken. WOW. Not enough lounges at the pool, people arguing over lounges. Need chairs at pool area - only had lounges.

convenient to airport and beaches

Overall the hotel was fine. Parking is at a premium unless you use valet parking which is more costly or unless you want to park in an covered parking area whicj seems scary at night. Friendly staff.

glorious

Just absolutely fantastic for lounging and resting at the pool. The room was open and very inviting with the balcony overlooking the water. We were, however, very frustrated by the outrageously over priced parking fee of 16 to 19.00 per day!
