It’s always been easy to feel a million miles away from it all at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach, but it just became more enticing, both for those who want to take the scenic route over the water to points south and for those looking to give an early start to their evening dining plans.
That’s the news from Misty Polihronakis, director of sales and marketing for the luxury property, where “be a million miles away in about 20 minutes…” is the getaway slogan of the day.
Now, she says, the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach has become an official pick-up point for the South Beach Express Water Taxi.
That means that, from Thursday through the weekend, guests can enjoy direct shuttle service to Miami’s most famous beaches aboard a water-taxi that offers round-trip service to South Beach from the 311-room lushly landscaped resort. Along the route, passengers get a 90-minute scenic cruise along Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, with fantastic views of the natural mangrove forests, the occasional dolphin, the million- dollar mansions and the luxury yachts of South Florida.
Once in port at the Miami Beach Marina near South Beach, guests have four hours for swimming, shopping and dining.
The South Beach Express Water Taxi departs the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Hotel at 10:15 a.m. Thursdays through Mondays. Cost is $38 and tickets are available at the front desk.
Also new at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach are Early Bird Specials from 4 to 6 p.m. weekdays for $12.95. The dining adventure includes soup or salad, an entrée and dessert.
