I can't say enough amazing things about the cleanliness and friendliness of this hotel everything about this place is magical. I've stayed here in business and I've stayed here with my family (two young children) numerous times, and every stay is better than the last. The staff is the most accommodating staff I've ever seen at a hotel, and I... More

This hotel is really great-great outdoor spaces, beautiful pool, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is what makes it a special place to stay.From Sabrina and Brian at the front desk to the exceptional Gentleman named Tom at the hotel's entrance, everyone in the hotel was overwhelmingly terrific! As SPG GOLD members, we were given a lovely upgrade...which... More

This hotel and its staff are among the best...anywhere. I recently had the privilege of staying in a Oasis Suite at the W Fort Lauderdale last weekend. I stay in hotels over 50 nights a year, at various luxury chains ( Fairmont, ST. Regis, Four Seasons) and often wondered if all hotels really are the same...This hotel is truly on... More

The service we experienced was that of a 5 star hotel, and is the foremost reason for the high rating. Everyone was attentive, and quick to respond to requests (hard to find in FL). Brian H. who was working the pool area, for going above and beyond, making every minute of our last day worth it. The rooms really aren't... More

This was our 2nd year visiting this property and I am sure we will make it an annual event. Last year we were upgraded to a huge 2-bedroom suite; this year, not quite so big-- got a megaroom, likely due to it being a busy weekend with a huge corporate event. We had a tough first night due to the... More

A fabulous hotel with service to match. If you have not stayed in a W Hotel you need to try it and the W Fort Lauderdale is the place to go. The pool area is fantastic. The Living room on a Saturday night is something to experience!! Most important, the staff are very welcoming and attentive to all your needs.

We have stayed at this hotel in the past before gong on a cruise and did so again this year. We are SPG Platinum and were supposed to receive and upgrade to a suite.

The W is truly Wonderful! After such a great first visit to the hotel I decided to go again for a couple of days to relax. The hotel was just as wonderful as my initial visit was, but the staff was even better showing their professionalism right at the beginning. I got a Spectacular room that was just breathtaking.

The W Hotel is quite lovely on the surface. Sadly, the details are a bit under par. The lounge chairs on the deck and by the pool are worn and need some TLC. The ambiance tries for sophisticated but just seemed a bit dark and gloomy. My room was on the floor with the two outdoor pools, nice for access... More
