Booked at this Marriott through JetBlue Getaways. Not sure if any money was saved doing it that way, but it was quick and convenient and we needed to get away from this awful winter ASAP. Great location along the 'Broadwalk' and a great staff that was very courteous, friendly, and helpful. Hotel is in need of an update. It was clean but tired. Our room had a small section of the ceiling that had peeled, a corner in the bathroom where tile met wall, and sections of peeling wallpaper that all needed fixing. Also, the air conditioner had an annoyingly loud sound every time it cycled off. Small things, but enough to merit a less than perfect rating. If the staff wasn't as top notch as it was the rating would definitely go down another notch. The area is more sedate than Fort Lauderdale, but if you need the nuttiness fix, the water taxi is a short walk away.

Room Tip: Higher rooms will afford a view of the ocean no matter the orientation

The property is pretty nice.

First the good parts:

The staff is really great. They are very pleasant with lots of smiles and a very helpful attitude. Everyone on staff was extremely friendly.

The location is very nice. Its right on the boardwalk with beautiful views of the Atlantic. There are numerous nice restaurants and bars within walking distance. Stores not too far.

The not so great:

The rooms were a bit dated. We actually had a wet spot on the floor of our room that was there the entire time of our stay. It was right next to the bed and we are not sure what it was exactly but kinda gross. The bathroom was also a little dated and not great but fairly clean and not awful or anything.

The hotel itself is probably between a 3.5 and 4 star property. The staff pushes it to a 4 star but the age and condition makes it a little closer to a 3.5. We enjoyed our stay and would possibly book there again.

You wont be disappointed assuming you are not looking for a 5 star property.

Because my grandmother lived in the area in a one bedroom condo, I have stayed here many times over the past decade +. My grandma lived to 103 and aged well. This hotel while it was beautiful several years ago has been declining in its looks. It needs an update, the spa is gone and the menu has been the same for soooooo long. But the good news is it is clean. The staff is super nice. It has one of the best beach and boardwalk locations in Hollywood. The food at the concierge level is a nice touch . The pool is nice as you get all the ocean views. My complaint would be the balconies which have dirty chairs , floors and glass. Very pretty views of the ocean from either side but north side is nicer. Also they have you fill in your requests prior to arrival and I always request feather pillow as the pillows here are made of small bricks. But never once has this been fulfilled. Never. Why bother asking Marriott ? But I do get the pillows pronto when I am there. Hopefully they will do a remodel and bring back the spa. This is still a great staff and location.

Perfect location on the boardwalk. There is plenty to do along the entire stretch of the boardwalk. There is a trolly right outside the hotel that goes to 3 locations. The hotel has recently been redone. The bed linens are top of the line, as are the beds. The food is great. We ate at the outside area twice and we're pleased with the quality and price of the food and drinks. The hotel staff provided excellent service. We booked this as part of a package and would go back. We took the trolly to check out the Westin Diplomat and think the Marriott location is far superior.

This is a solid hotel with VERY nice staff that are readily available. The style of the hotel is old classic Island - which is very nice and appropriate for the great location. The food was great in the restaurant however it seem to have gone down dramatically in quality in the concierge lounge (we came last year). I only wish the rooms were a little bigger. Penny

Wow. What are terrible hotel. The deluxe room gives you a view of a roof full of equipment that is super loud. I am a platinum (marriott's highest level) and when I complained about being put into a handicapped room with noise and view issues the manager told me to pound sand. After spending 30000 points (which I had to earn by spending $3,000 at Marriott properties) I wish I had just stayed at an airport hotel...it is just awful. I highly recommend avoiding this butt crack of a property...oh btw even though all the nearby hotels have free parking, the Marriott is $17 a night to self park.

My husband and I booked a trip to this hotel in Hollywood last minute. We used to stay at the Hollywood Beach Resort 20 years ago when we were dating. Sadly, that place has seen better days. We chose this Marriott and a hotel package that includes breakfast, parking and cabana. We were given a Georgia room. We were impressed with the size and cleanliness. The view was ugly, but we didn't care about that, since we were out and about all day. Breakfast was good, but the omelette/egg chef did not do a good job. My over medium egg was burnt and crispy. Lol. All the staff members at this place were friendly. We love the broadwalk, though it can feel a little unsafe late at night. Don't walk in the bike lane! I almost hit several people who didn't follow that rule. We visited the Westin Diplomat and couldn't believe how crowded that hotel was. We would never stay there. We loved the beach at Marriott and the quaint feel. We also checked out South Beach. Meh. Again, this was prettier imho. Can't wait to book again. I would even consider coming here with the kids next time. Penny
