Hollywood Hotels

Suburban Fort Lauderdale meets Spring Break hedonism in laid-back Hollywood. Just a 25-minute drive south from the city center, this vintage waterfront town’s brimming with art deco guesthouses where you can stroll from hotel room to long swathe of white and golden Florida sand. In March, the beach gives way to late night parties and volleyball tournaments on the sand, as student vacationers hit the town – and beer – hard. The rest of the year there’s an old-school vibe along the shores of this quirky Florida sunshine spot.

Things to see

It might be hard to tear yourself away from the languid glistening shores of Hollywood Beach. Make like the locals and rent some rollerblades or a beach cruiser to weave or pedal along the palm tree-shrouded Broadwalk. If your tummy starts to grumble this is the place for laid-back eateries. Grab a fish taco for a quick bite before rolling on to North Beach Park, a favorite picnic and sunbathing spot. Here you can frolic in the crystal clear shallows before finding a shady spot of white sand under a swaying palm. If you can pull yourself away from the glistening shoreline, downtown Hollywood’s brimming with art deco buildings. It’s the perfect place for a sunny day stroll between boutiques and galleries. The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood’s the perfect stopping point, brimming with colorful and eclectic exhibitions showing off the works of local artists.

Hotels in Hollywood

Characterful period motels and guesthouses are the mainstay of Hollywood’s accommodation. The 1 and 2-star hotels offer up simple rooms for a low price tag, while 3-star guesthouses provide extra perks like sparkly swimming pools, lush landscaped gardens, and mod-cons like in-room kitchen facilities and WiFi. The 4-star luxury hotels and resorts are popping up throughout town. Pamper yourself with a deep tissue massage or rejuvenating facial in the on-site spa during the day, and at dusk order cocktails on your balcony to watch the sea and sky tinting orange.

Where to stay

If you’re looking to save some bucks, head a few blocks off the beach where you’ll find good value family-friendly hotels and motels. Downtown Hollywood’s the place for art deco buildings, so stay here to immerse yourself among vintage boutique guesthouses and old-school hotels. Along Hollywood Beach and Broadwalk you’ll be treated to glamour and pampering in top-end resorts overlooking the gleaming sea. If the idea for your holiday is to spend your downtime soaking up Florida’s steamy sun by the pool and on the sand, this is the place to base yourself. North Beach is generally more peaceful than the Broadwalk further south.

How to get to Hollywood

With a choice of 2 international airports just a short drive away, Hollywood really is an easy go-to vacation spot on Florida’s coast. Miami International Airport’s a 30-minute drive to the south and has connections to many US cities, as well as destinations in Canada, Central America, Europe, and further afield. Similarly, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport’s a nifty 20-minute drive away and has connections with US and international cities. You can rent a car at either airport or arrange a transfer through your hotel. Shuttle buses can also be arranged in advance. Hollywood’s a breeze to get around by car, or you can rent a bike if you prefer the sun on your shoulders.
