“Good Value, Nice decor, Excellent bed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2010

Good hotel, we asked a quiet room, and they did get us a quiet room. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. We checked mattress and linens for bed bugs and didn't see any evidence of any. Sheets were clean. Room was nicely-decorated.
Bathroom floor was dirty.
View from north side of the hotel - good view of intracoastal waterway, side view of Atlantic.
Good price for the location.
Dance/Pop music at the pool. Pool has outdoor tiki hut/bar with TVs to watch sports. Bartenders and outdoor staff were very nice.
Front desk staff & valets were nice, very helpful.
Trolley stop is in front of hotel, 7-11 is next to the hotel. You can also walk to a late-night pizza place.

Dear Maureen,

Thanks for visiting us over on the other coast of Florida and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, particularly our beds- they really are fantastic!! When looking to venture from the West Coast again in the future, we hope that you will consider returning to our hotel for another good night's sleep.

South Florida is like a second home to me. I grew up visiting friends and family in and around Hollywood, Aventura, Sunny Isles, etc. I was accustomed to staying with family when traveling to Florida, but last year I stayed at the Crowne Plaza in November for my very first time. Since then, I went back in March, I am returning in a week, and I have already made plans to go again next month.

The hotel's location in my nostalgic stomping grounds is absolutely perfect, and offers everything I need in a hotel. Beautifully appointed rooms, comfortable beds, spacious balconies (I recommend asking for a South-facing room), a beautiful and spacious pool area right on the inter-coastal, free in-room internet (wired), free WIFI at the pool (though reception is a bit dodgy), and just across the street from the beach.

You've got Fort Lauderdale about 20 minutes North, Aventura Mall not even 10 minutes away, and a quick 30 minute drive to South Beach. Places like Starbucks, Panera, Publix, Walmart, around the corner on Hallandale Beach Blvd (walkable, but I recommend taking the car). The $15 self-park / $18 valet per day charge is a bit of a disappointment, but it's a standard fee among many 4+ star hotels. Though, it's a steal compared to the $24 the Westin Diplomat charges you!

On my second visit there in March, I was shocked when one of the pool's towel attendants recognized me from 5 months prior and welcomed me back! Talk about customer service! It's little things like that that stick out in guests' memories. Kudos!

Most of the Tiki Bar staff are really fun to strike up a conversation with, and the drinks and most of the bar food makes for a fun afternoon in the sun.

Looking forward to check-in again next week!

My five year old daughter and I spent three nights at this hotel at the end of July. The room was nice. The decor was modern and updated. There was a mini-kitchen with a microwave, small refrigerator, sink and cabinet space to store groceries. We didn't have a rental car and were able to walk to the nearby Walmart, which was probably about a mile away, to get snacks and breakfast items. The staff was friendly. We both enjoyed the infinity pool. The beach was across the street. The street is busy but easy to cross in the crosswalk. There is a trolley that stops right in front of the hotel that is $1 per ride. The only thing that would have improved the stay would have been complimentary wi-fi in the room rather than just the common areas. When my daughter was sleeping, it would have been nice to be able to do research to plan our itinerary for the day. We enjoyed our visit to the hotel and would stay there again.

This was a very nice hotel especially for the location and the price. The beach was right across the street from the hotel and close to many restaurants and bars. Great pool area where you can watch the speed boats and the bridge rise and close.

This hotel is somewhere between a upscale Holiday Inn and downscale Crowne Plaza.

Whats good : Big rooms , very nice view if you have a corner room towards ocean, furniture, equipment, everything in working order.

Whats neutral: staff, housekeeping (done quite hastly, alway clean for important things like bed and bathroom, but for the rest ....., and attention to details missing)

Whats not so good: Air conditionning (working good, but old style, thus noisy and sending freezing air right onto you). Restaurant and Bar. They are allegedly two of each, but one of each is the poolside extension of the main one, so basically, only one . Restaurant serves very good food, but this,is overshadowed by the bar location, right in the middle of the restaurant. Talking about the "Bar" : it is located around a corner into the restaurant, separated by a small wall, with only 5 or so bar chairs available. So definitely not a cosy bar when you can sit and relax at a table, and quickly full ! Redesign strongly suggested here !

Dear gt2638,

I appreciate you taking the time to share your recent experience at our hotel on TripAdvisor and am glad to hear that you enjoyed our sleeping rooms and view of the Intracoastal Waterway. Of course, the other comments made have been forwarded to the appropriate managers so that we can address each and every one of them. I'm not sure if you had a chance to visit our Lava Tiki Bar, located on the Intracoastal Waterway but this may be a nice option for you on your next visit where you can enjoy the same great food as in the restaurant with a very nice and relaxing ambiance.

Look forward to seeing you again,

Misty P.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza on a recent business trip and found that while the room was nice, there were several irritations that added up to be not being totally happy.
The clock in my room was set incorrectly, making me miss meeting times with colleagues - should be checked regularly by housekeeping staff. There was no bottled water available in the hotel, except for the very expensive stuff from room service - I had to walk to a sketchy 7-11 late at night on the night I arrived for water. Hallway noise was a problem and I was awakened several times in the night by staff going about their business - 4am, delivering papers, etc. I ordered room service and they brought it (mediocre) but forgot silverware, so left the plate to retreive silverware - for 10 minutes, while my meal got cold. Not even an apology.

If you're going there - enjoy the comfortable room and free high-speed, trolly stop right out front...but, don't expect the details to be taken care of making your visit as comfortable as you'd expect from a hotel of this quality.

Returned for our fall visit and brought 4 other family couples for long weekend. Just what we expected, great time with friendly and helpful staff! We decided at the last minute to arrange a business lunch and Marty & Jeff quickly assisted and pulled it off without a hitch,, we never had to get out of pool or make a single call! The Lava Tiki bar staff was in top form - it was great to see the gang!

Got out before the weather hit, if they could only control that.....
special thanks to everyone from Valet to Housekeeping - great job!
