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.

Good for short stay

Rooms are small but for a short overnight stay was fine. One of the two rooms was not ready by the 4:00 check-in time. Walls are very thin so noise can be a problem. Location was great, right on the beach, and is with-in walking distance to shops and dining.

One Night Stay 6/14-15/10

Very nice, upscale hotel. Staff was friendly and the hotel is elegant and has a variety of very nice and interesting shops in a mini-mall setting on the lobby level. Breakfast was very nice and offered a nice upgrade if one desires. Internet connectivity was the worst I ever experienced and the hotel recommendation of me calling an outside provider's technical hotline failed to help. Outside bar was nice and offered a live band. The location right on the beautiful beach with palm-lined walkway can't be beat. A great value for the price.

Awesome location, awesome price!!

Just a great hotel at a great location at a great price. Stayed the night before our cruise and enjoyed the board walk, the beach, stores and candy cane parade!!! The beach side bar has great food, friendly staff, and let us watch the BIG 12 championship game! Recommend to anyone to stay here.

value for money

The Ramada Beach Hotel was more than what we expected compared to the price we were paying. Although under renovation, we were not really disturbed by noise. We were lucky because for most of our stay the workers weren't there (Thanksgiving holiday). On the three days with work we only heard some drilling or hammering starting at 8 am. Our floor was not fully renovated, so the carpet in the hallway looked old and a bit dirty. The room was spacious, with a large refrigerator and a small stove plus sink, so you could even prepare meals if you wanted to. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was a bit small, but only slightly smaller than the one in our own apartment in NYC. Room service was done late morning or early afternoon, so we never were disturbed by them knocking at a time when we weren't ready. The staff was always helpful. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient. The location was great - right on the boardwalk and in perfect driving distance from the attractions we wanted to see (Everglades, the keys, Miami, Sawgrass Mills Mall, Seminole Hard Rock Casino), plus a very short drive from the Fort Lauderdale airport. Although Hollywood Beach itself offers entertainment and has a considerable number of inexpensive restaurants on the boardwalk, it does get slightly boring after a few days.

The Hard Rock Casino has a beautiful water show with music in the evenings, and a little outdoor mall with shops and good restaurants. Sawgrass Mills Mall has great discounts to make it worth arriving with an empty suitcase to fill up there.

Perfect Vacation Spot

We stayed at The Ramada Hollywood Beach Resort for a quick get away. The hotel is VERY old and in need of renovations. They said they were doing this one floor at a time. Even though it was old, the hotel was VERY clean. The beds were comfortable, there was always hot water, the room was cold- and we needed that! The pool area was perfect- right on the broadwalk. The ocean is just across the broadwalk. The staff was friendly, and accomodating. There is a mall that they are trying to rent out right on the ground floor of the hotel. The continental breakfast is just enough- pastries, bagels, cereal, coffee and juice. There are different choices of places to eat also- O'Malley's was very good for a beach bar with very good service. There is a pizza place,a chinese food place, a salad sub and burger place. We are hoping to go again after the renovations.

Beware of concierge

Stayed one night as we were departing for a cruise the next day at the Everglades. The room was clean and reasonable for the price. The concierge was extremely short and unfriendly. The prices for transportation from the airport and to the pier in relation to the hotel's distance from the same were way too high. However, the location was perfect with the beach and boardwalk at the immediate back of the hotel. For a cruise, no, I will not stay again because too many other great hotels offer complimentary airport and pier transportation. For a vacation with no need for transportation, this would be a great place to stay.
