Overview

Customer service is top-notch at this Hilton outpost
Few amenities sit within walking distance of the resort

This sprawling complex overflows with luxurious facilities, such as two outdoor pools lined with lounge chairs and cabanas, seven restaurants and the 14,000-square-foot Diplomat Spa. Along with high-end amenities, this resort also boasts well-appointed rooms and suites, outfitted with marble bathrooms, blackout curtains and furnished balconies with views of the surrounding buildings, ocean or Intracoastal Waterway. Although the guest rooms receive a thumbs-up for comfort and style, recent guests mostly praised the customer service, citing the staff's friendliness and eagerness to help as a reason to return. (The oceanfront views aren't too shabby, either.) But convenience is something this resort lacks: The Diplomat Beach Resort Hollywood is about 10 miles southeast of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. And thanks to this Curio property's Hilton ties, if you're a Hilton Honors, you can use or earn points here.
