U.S. News Review

Just 10 miles south of Fort Lauderdale in Hollywood, Florida, the Crowne Plaza Hotel Hollywood Beach offers spacious rooms (462 square feet of space complete with kitchenettes), views of the Intracoastal Waterway and an infinity-edge outdoor swimming pool. If you're seeking respite from the inundation of family vacationers, request a room on the "Quiet Zone" floor, a kid-free area with noise restrictions as well as prohibited early morning and late night housekeeping. But if you're looking for a livelier scene, recent guests recommend spending some time at the poolside Lava Tiki Bar, despite the high drink prices. And if you're looking for something more substantial in terms of food and drink, snag a table at Elements Bistro and Bar. Thanks to its brand ties, this Crowne Plaza participates in the IHG Rewards Club.
