This Westin needs a facelift! Things like really old carpet and shower curtains that smell moldy. The pool is small given the size of the hotel. The staff is friendly. The beds are good, as always. Bath has louvered doors that aren't my favorite kind of door for a bathroom. The location is wonderful.

Right in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale and perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean and A1A. The hotel has an easy access walk over A1A from the pool deck bar level. Shula's restaurant is on premise as well as a bar at the pool side. Not crazy about all the kids at the pool and the lack of parental attentiveness... More

My hero at this resort is Ray. I lost a very special ring, and Ray thoroughly, carefully and conscientiously sifted through sand under the hot sun until it was found. I was all set to give up and call a service with a metal detector, but Ray kept telling me no, "I will find it". And he did! Helping Ray... More

Dear Karan, My family and I had an absolutely fabulous experience at the Westin Resort & Spa. The "Staff" was amazing. We were pampered from the minute we came in the door. Just to mention a few names: Katia-Server, Robert-Bellman, Delfine-Front Desk Agent and you of course. The list is much longer, but those are the names that come immediately... More

I was so excited when I won a contest that included 2 nights here with dinner at Shulas. We have stayed at Westins all over the country, Caribbean, and Hawaii and they are our favorite of the Starwood Chain. So I booked my free stay and a third night on a travel agent StarwoodPro rate of $109 (being an IATA... More

From the minute you pull into the driveway until you leave, the staff treats you like royalty. We stayed here before a flight to the Bahamas and didn't know what to expect. The rooms were clean and the view of the beach and ocean spectacular. Lunch at the pool bar was very good-I had the shrimp Caesar salad and it... More

Loved our stay at the Westin Beach Resort. Close walking distance to great restaurants, water taxi, and beach is right across the street. Our room was pool level and we did not have any problems with noise. I only hate that we couldn't stay longer! Staff was impeccable. They treated us like royalty. Highly recommend!

We are Starwood members and besides the free wi fi didn't receive any special treatment at all which was the only drawback. We had a "partial" ocean view room, which really mean you had to lean...
