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.

Quick Overnight Trip

We booked our room on a whim for a quick weekend trip. The photos look much nicer than the place actually is. For the price the location is right on the beach, but it seems as though the resort used to be a much nicer place and used to be much better kept. Just seemed a little run down.

nice cheap stay

its a cheap hotel, but with nice location and great pools. staff is nice. some of the rooms belong to the hotel, the rest are individually owned. we had the "luck" of having an upstairs neighbor scraping his floors and doing remodeling in the middle of the night. we called front desk, they sent somebody, he stopped for a few minutes and then started again. it was 2 am so my husband and I called front desk again and went upstairs ourselves. we identified the room and knocked and sure thing, this guy was remodeling his room. well..he stopped and started again at 9am sharp..we were still sleeping since we had a bad night but what can you do.. other than that, the rooms need a makeover but are functional. the gym is big but really dirty. the boardwalk is beautiful. I would stay again for the money

Disgusting room - spend more, go elsewhere

I booked this as I needed to pick someone up from Fort Lauderdale airport. Location to airport - great. And that's it. I got the "best" room when booking - oceanview suite. My room smelled strongly of food cooking (from other rooms nearby). The secondary lock was broken off the door and missing. I did not feel safe. The sheets did not fit the mattress. (other smaller details that I could have lived with - noisy fridge, tube tv, extremely outdated decor and bathroom). I called down and explained the situation and the staff gave me a new room. This one was no longer a straight view to the ocean, rather a side view, if you craned your neck. I was happy to see I had a functional door, sheets that fit, and the room looked to be semi-updated. The bathroom had newer fixtures and the tv was flat panel. I would never stay here again, for memory of the awful room and for the risk of getting an absolutely awful room again. I was happy that they let me change rooms, but I would never recommend staying here.

Amazing location

Very strange experience. This "grand lady" hotel was the center of the town in its day. Renovated in the 40s and again in the 80s it is a strange mix of opulence and grunge. The location could not be more breathtaking, right on the beach. Nearly impossible (but not entirely impossible) to find a working ice machine. Warning: gas stoves in nearly every room, so if you are sensitive to indoor air quality, be sure to consider that there are few rooms without them.

Christmas in Hollywood Beach

The petite studio room's only issue was that there was no stove or hot plate to cook. We had pots and pans in the cupboards but it didn't do us any good. The hotel itself is a great place to stay sin we've stayed numerous time. The pool is large but just know to go down early to get a chair. It gets crowded very early. Great walk to stores on he board walk. Good exercise
