Took a quick night away to enjoy dinner and beach with friends and family and couldn't have asked for a better place. Staff was superb, scene was chill but just what I wanted. Room was cozy and just what I expect from a W property. I was there over a holiday and it looked like they had set up some... More

Very poor lighting in public spaces, and especially in bathroom. Glass shower in middle of room was bizarre. Cost for short parking ridiculous at $15 for check-in only. I was part of large group, everyone found it too dark and didn't like see-through showers. Overpriced for what we got.

We stayed at the Hotel W Fort Lauderdale for four nights in January, 2015. This hotel advertises itself as as an upscale hotel, but it should be noted that it is far from a luxury hotel such as a Ritz Carlton. First, the good things. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet car service was excellent. We would... More

The W hotel in Fort Lauderdale is a good hotel. The room was very nice and cozy and the bed in the room was amazing! There were only two downsides to the hotel. One was that the first room I stayed at was not a nice room and it was bought with miles by a person with gold membership with... More

In general, really liked the W Hotel. Service was great, food among best in hotel room services. Alas couldn't take advantage of steak house in restaurant but will for sure next time. The lighting and room was really nice....but here comes the "but". For a room that is of nice size with all the "bells & whistles", the TV was... More

I still can't get over the need to have a dark entrance to any hotel. Similar to the W Times Square in that manner - hard to see or find anything in the dark areas. This hotel has 2 pools - one fully staffed, bar and all the bells, the other is a very poor cousin with ripped cousins, no... More

for a $450 room I expect better amenities. Very close to beach with nice views. staff was professional. I suggest finding on street free parking as there is plenty available if you know where to look. ..

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend tagged onto a work trip (the work trip was based at a different hotel). Overall, the biggest issue was that the hotel was full to capacity, which led to some service issues and slowness. Pros: Room was clean and nice, good location, nice views of the beach. The "living room" area... More

I always wanted to stay in this hotel, the minute I saw it. I like the style, the wall of jellyfish and loved the restaurant "954". So I did stay there in january 2015, for 2 memorable days. the 'wonderful' room, was truly wonderful, the bathroom was especially cool, no bath but a 'walk-in' shower( as requested), a balcony, a...
