Hollywood Beach, Florida, Hotels

by Anel Laj

Named one of the best beach boardwalks in America by Travel + Leisure, the Hollywood Boardwalk offers travelers an opportunity to run, bike, roller blade, shop, eat, watch live musical performances, or experience festivals and cultural events at the Beach Theater. The boardwalk, which stretches a little over two miles along Hollywood Beach coastline, features some of south Florida’s coziest and luxurious hotels.

Upscale Accommodations

The Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Resort and the Marriott Hollywood Beach Hotel provide luxury accommodations for tourists wishing to be pampered by the sea. The Crowne Plaza offers over 300 luxury guest rooms and suites with direct beach access. In addition, the hotel also prides itself in their Sleep Advantage Program, which includes custom bedding, and a sleep and relaxation CD. The Marriott Hollywood Beach Hotel, given the AAA four-diamond award, offers over 220 guestrooms and junior suites with balconies. It includes a full-service spa, fitness center, beachfront pool, sailboat rental and water sports.

Classic Hollywood

The Walkabout Beach Resort with its Art Deco style provides travelers eight charming oceanfront guest rooms. The boutique hotel, located right on the boardwalk, offers a cozier atmosphere in a smaller venue, yet still features amenities and services of a larger hotel, such as suites with a home-like feel. One of the highlights includes the over-sized Tiki Bar that provides live entertainment while guests enjoy their beer, wine or mixed drinks.

Relaxing Accommodations

Located across the street from the Intercoastal Waterway is the Hollywood Beach Suites, Hostel and Hotel. It provides guests with equipment for activities such as biking, surfing, kayaking, fishing, paddleboarding tours or beach volleyball. The hotel features accommodations for just about every traveler, from singles who want to meet new friends to large groups and families. Travelers choose to share accommodations with friends in the hostel rooms or stay in one of the suites.

Outdoor Recreation Packages

Individuals wishing to escape the colder states and play golf in warm, tropical surroundings often find time to book “Stay-and-Play” packages at The Hollywood Beach Golf Resort. It features packages that include 18 holes of golf on a championship-style course with cart included, 10-percent off golf merchandise in the pro shop and resort guest priority start times. Guests choose from 30 spacious hotel suites, which provide private, screened-in patios and partial views of the course.
