We bought two nights here through Priceline at a great rate. Often with Priceline they give you the worst room in the place but I think we gor one of the best this time! Big glorious view of the beach from 2 big patio doors. The doors open but it is not a balcony. Excellent beds and room quality, The... More

During our trip we stayed at 4 different hotels and this was definitely the best. It is a great location across from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and bars. No free wifi in room but they did have it in the lobby. Staff was very nice. Only thing I didn't like was paying 26 dollars for parking per... More

I recently returned from The Westin Beach Resort and can only report a wonderful stay. I was accomodated with an early check in which was great. The young man at the reception desk was as friendly and efficient as could be. The location is perfect, right on the beach and close enough to walk to many little shops, bars and... More

After walking around the area, we got a sense that this hotel was probably better than most of the others in the area. We were able to get a very good price online so we were a bit nervous about the condition of the hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. The only problem we encountered was poor air-conditioner performance. It... More

This hotel was well located, a short walk to restaurants and shops. We had a beautiful beach view and easy access to the water via a walkway. The room was a good size, clean and had a great mattress. Many reviewers complain about the shuttered bathroom door. Although a little odd, it did not bother us. The hotel staff were... More

Right on the beach, pleasant, professional chain hotel but when you can hear your next door neighbour zipping their suitcase, the walls are too thin. Great fitness centre and a Starbucks downstairs. Strange arrangement where the hotel is split into two sections, which means you have to go in two lifts and cross a walkway to get where you want.

This is as ocean front as you can be in Ft. Lauderdale. Awesome location. If your objective is to spend as much time on the sand as possible, this is an excellent choice. It's an old property, but clearly they put a LOT into maintaining it, which isn't easy given the heat and humidity of Southern Florida. The room was... More

We stayed at this property because we thought with the Westin name it would be fabulous. However, it was really average. Service was not great at all...front desk did not seem to care at all and were not helpful, especially when we told them about the HUGE cockroach in the room! They did send someone to check out the situation,... More

Don't be fooled by the mediocre looks of the exterior of the Westin. The minute you step out of your car for a valet, the pleasant and efficient crew is greeting you willingly and accomodates your every whim! This is just the beginning of a wonderful stay at the Westin. As soon as you walk in to the lobby, you... More
