The W Fort Lauderdale not only meets the standard for W hotels but easily exceeds them. Located across the street from the ocean and just a few blocks from some great places to eat and have drinks. The hotel itself is modern decor to the highest level. Pleasantly suprised by the quality of the bed, just as if sleeping on... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is fine, the staff seems specially nice and accommodating, but there's a big issue for us that might resonate for others. In most of the rooms the bathroom is open to the bedroom. There are no doors on the bathroom when there is a wall. For couples who like a bit of privacy, this is terrible. We ended... More

What I liked: the king room with oceanview balcony meant I could enjoy coffee and breakfast away from the loud adults and children at the pooldeck. Spa was super, food was great. It's loud, from the pooldeck noise to a lot of cars honking .... But it was being woken at 7:30am to the house-keeping staff yelling to each other... More

The W never disappoints. I had the best experience yesterday at the Bliss Spa. Absolute best customer service, people were so polite and genuine. I highly recommend requesting Sohir Russell. I had the best pedicure of my life!!

We visited in February with young children. There were things about the hotel I loved - the pool area is great (and don't miss the smaller second pool - we had this to ourselves one morning and it was blissful), the staff was very friendly and helpful when approached, the morning workouts on the beach were excellent, the hotel was...

Absolutely loved the W Hotel. The staff was so helpful and friendly from the concierge to the front desk to the valet parkers. Everything was taken care of with a smile and willingness to help. Loved the cool corner suite, the pool was awesome and the restaurant was great!

We went down in January for a quick visit. This is the 6th time I have been fortunate enough to stay at the W in Fort Lauderdale and it is always consistent. I have been with my children, with my boyfriend, and most recently with just my daughter to look at colleges. We got "stuck" due to the snow and... More

We wanted a nice Valentine's Day weekend get away so we booked The W......that won't happen again. Although it is a beautiful hotel and I am sure there are many amenities that were available that we didn't use; things we DID want weren't available. Our ocean-view room was nice but I almost got a hernia while trying to open the... More
