Hollywood, Florida
I was looking forward to my stay at Hotel Zena. It looked beautiful, rooms were spacious, and I really appreciated the art in the rooms. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. I was over charged at checkin which was not removed from my account despite being told it would be. The room was small and the view was an interior courtyard of the apartment complex. The ceiling was low and I couldn’t lift my arms in the shower without hitting the room. The room did not have any art besides two moss circles stuck on the wall.

This hotel was in a great location. Close to the museum’s and restaurants. The lobby, the decor and the rooms were beautiful. Pro female environment, great art and empowerment quotes throughout. The staff were friendly and helpful. The valet service was excellent.

The room was great- bright light, large windows, very spacious. Bed was incredibly comfortable. Staff at Hedy's was lovely and made me feel so special on my birthday. In addition, Million & Dessale at the valet stand were friendly and gracious. 11/10 would come back again!

Robert B wrote a review 26 Jul
Service was great from the start. Front desk greeted me immediately. After check in showed me stair access and walked me to my room (my wife don't do elevators). The room was on a low floor, as I requested. The room was clean - I know because I wipe down and disinfected everything. However the refrigerator could have used some attention. Also Million & Dessale (Doorman/Parking attendants) were always on point. Very attentive and respectful - great guys. They get 5 stars!
