In the first month of the new year, it is important to take stock of what was achieved the year before, and look forward to more in the next year.

This past year did have one tragic note for all of us at Quality Inn & Suites - Hollywood Blvd & Port Everglades Cruise Port. It is with heavy hearts that we had to say goodbye to Genie Harris, a 15 year veteran, and the longest tenured employee of our Hollywood cruise hotel. Genie passed away in September of 2016, but she remains in our hearts and in our minds.
2016 culminated on a positive note. For the sixth consecutive year, Quality Inn & Suites - Hollywood Blvd & Port Everglades Cruise Port was awarded the prestigious White Glove Award by the Superior Small Lodging Association. The annual award recognizes hotels for exceptional cleanliness, organization and customer service.
