The Grand Lady of the Port Everglades Cruise Port

Dubbed the grand lady, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port holds a prominent spot in local history. Built in 1925, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port was designed to mirror the classic Mediterranean revival style. After extensive renovations, the hotel's interiors have been refreshed with new kitchens, countertops, bedding and floors in all studios and suites. Guests also appreciate direct access to the Hollywood Boardwalk, the Port Everglades Cruise Port and the two-story mall onsite.

Highlights
  • Mediterranean revival style hotel at Port Everglades Cruise Port
  • Full kitchens with dishware and cookware
  • Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway views
  • Laundry rooms on every floor
  • Free continental breakfast for two guests on certain room types
  • Free Wi-Fi access
  • Parking (fees apply)
Location

For cruise goers, the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port boasts an ideal location at the southern end of Port Everglades and near the famous Hollywood Boardwalk, which earned the distinction as America's Best Beach Boardwalk by Travel & Leisure. After a day of rollerblading or sunbathing, guests can also spend their tourist dollars at the on-site Oceanwalk Mall (the only enclosed shopping center directly on the oceanfront) located on the first and second floors of the hotel.

Rooms

A $3 million renovation updated more than 100 rooms, adding new granite countertops in the bathroom and kitchen, wood cabinets, porcelain tile flooring, bedding, furniture and decorative crown molding. Tropical and abstract prints brighten the space and coordinate with curtains and comforters. Studios and suites at the Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port enable guests to prepare meals in full kitchens and log on to Wi-Fi for free. For a peek at surrounding vistas, request a room with an ocean view.

Recreation

Palm trees dot the canvas surrounding the outdoor pool, which is hugged by a sizeable sundeck for lounging. The Hollywood Beach Resort Cruise Port also keeps the blood flowing via the neighboring Jacuzzi and indoor fitness center equipped with treadmills, stationary bikes and StairMasters.

not bad

Very old hotel in great need of improvement, but in a way it was charming and the employees were absolutely wonderful. Maid service was polite and helpful (how much coffee do you need?-reg or decaf? etc) stove and frig in the room was helpful. right on the beach was very handy. If you demand absolutely new and fresh looking rooms, don't stay here. If you don't mind dilapidated old hotels with reasonable cleanliness, this is the place for you. I prefer funky old hotels, so this was a dream come true for me. Most people are not like me.

Okay place

We stayed at this hotel for 48 hours and we made sure to spend as much time out of the hotel room as possible. The rooms are tiny and is covered wall to wall in tile. There is no way to control the temperature in the room and there is no heat so when it is 33 degrees outside you can guess how cold the room is. The shower is a small trickle of water as well.

Great Location...Hotel needs some work

This hotel is right on the boardwalk and beach - great location! The restaurant O'Malleys next to the pool had a great atmosphere. The lobby area and bathrooms need some work and need to be cleaned. The rooms were nicely remodeled, but you could here everything and everyone in the hallways, next door to you and above you...this kept us up most of the night.

Clean Rooms, Good Ammenities

Great deal - clean, renovated room, kitchenette with dishes, stove, and full-sized fridge, great location, historic decor in hallways, felt safe and secure. Front desk was friendly enough, but concierge was neither helpful nor hospitable. I regularly travel in 2-3 star hotels, so have reasonable expectations, all of which were exceeded. You're not paying for a 5-star hotel, so don't expect one; however, you're certainly getting a great deal for the price. Our only major disappointment was the lack of Internet service. A wireless connection was available, but so slow that we were unable to use it at ALL. We could not even check email, much less stream any movies online. The location is prime, right along Hollywood Beach's stretch of shops and restaurants. It's also right on a bus route, which was very convenient for us because we did not rent a car during the vacation. There's also a nature center nearby (walkable or bus-able), which provided another nice source of entertainment.NOTE: We traveled during the off-season, so your spring break experience may differ.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Check out the bus system - it's very easy to bus from Fort Lauderdale's airport to this hotel or any other along this strip. Take bus 1 from the airport and transfer to bus 4. At the transfer point, check out a sweet little joint called Tuscany Caffe - great ambiance!

The Hotel of Horrors

This has to be the worst stay I have ever had in any hotel in the world. The room description is completely false. They have renamed Double beds Queen Size beds. A No Smoking room simply means "you" can't smoke in there, you can choke on the smoke from other people though. The staff just says they cant do anything about it. The TV didn't work on all the channels and after 3 complaints, I got 3 excuses and a guy that couldn't fix it, or get another TV, or anything. I was moved to 3 different rooms during my stay. To top off the whole experience the Valet could not be found for over an hour and I couldn't get my car back, and the manager cursed my mother.

Great location! - no free parking

No free parking, valet $17 a day, garage $15 a day Easy check in, 1950's look and feel. Restaurant in hotel (continental breakfast there), tiki bar out back (GREAT BARTENDER!), right on the boardwalk and beach. Small but clean rooms.

Terrible

The service at this hotel was awful! Very unfriendly staff members (very uneducated) and very ugly rooms. They charge extra for everything (shuttle, parking, internet, etc). It is the only hotel in the area that has not been renovated!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AT THIS HOTEL![...]

Amazing Time

We went to just get away for a few days and were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. After reading through alot of the bad reviews I'll admit I wash alittle scared. Let me just say, my stay was the exact opposite. The hotel was awesome, the staff was great and let us check in early , the shuttle was right on time, and the location was amazing. I would def. would back again, especially with the cheap rates. Thanks to everyone at the Ramada!! Also O'malleys bar was a great time!
