On behalf of The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, FL., we’d like to thank you for your support in the wake of Hurricane Irma. We have received an outpouring of concern for our ambassadors and property, and we are truly grateful. Our hearts and thoughts continue to be with those impacted.
We are pleased to announce that The Diplomat Beach Resort remains open and operational. Our team and the city have worked diligently to clear the property and surrounding roadways of scattered debris to restore limited service operations as of Friday, September 15, 2017. The property will be fully operational, to include our 10 food and beverage outlets, as of Saturday, September 16, 2017.
We are strong in Florida and are humbled by the selfless efforts of our team members, guests, first responders, local and state authorities and the entire community who have come together to help one another through this devastating storm.
Early reports indicate that many business in the Hollywood area will be up and running by tomorrow. We are happy to share that Gulfstream and Aventura Mall are accessible and select stores are already open for business. Both Miami International and Fort Lauderdale International airports are open and every day will add more flights to help visitors get to our great city. Cruise passengers are arriving and departing out of both Ports and local buses are operating as of Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
The sun is shining in Florida and we can assure you we are open and ready to provide you and your group with the hospitality you expect from not only Hilton hotels, but from the great people of the city of Hollywood, Florida.
