From the Sun Sentinel: “Long-awaited Margaritaville taking reservations”
Get ready to pack your bags, Parrotheads. The new Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is taking reservations. Rates at the 349-room resort on the Broadwalk begin at $259 a night, a hotel spokeswoman said Tuesday.
The resort includes 151 king rooms, 154 queen rooms and 44 suites, along with the Jimmy Buffett Suite and the Coral Reefer Suite, which will occupy the penthouse level of the 17-story resort.

The $147 million Margaritaville, at Johnson Street and State Road A1A, will include eight restaurants and bars, oceanside pools, a FlowRider wave ride, spa and fitness center and 30,000 square feet of convention space.
“We look forward to welcoming our first guests,” General Manager Cate Farmer said in a news release Tuesday. Reservations are being accepted for stays starting Oct. 1, but the date will be adjusted when a firm opening date is set, the spokewoman said.
So far, the Margaritaville has said only that it will open in “summer 2015.” Hotel developer Lon Tabatchnick told city commissioners in April that Margaritaville could open after mid-July and before Labor Day, if all goes as planned.
Reservations are available by calling 844-5OCLOCK (844-562-5625) or at www.MargaritavilleResorts.com.
