Overall a disappointment. Rooms were a little boring, service was ok but not outstanding. Valet services were disorganised and not slick, and expensive for the service you received. They could not get us a minibus taxi for 6??? Room stank of bleach, test glass door next to toilet still had pee stains... No coffee facilities in rooms, so ordered from... More

A little tired for a W. Was upgraded, but to a very small residential suite - could not find any samples of pictures showing this style room. All furniture and upholstery is dated and worn - with stains on most and tethered fabric on all outside furniture and scratches on most inside furniture. Poolside was a zoo, and given the... More

Nice stay at the W Fort Lauderdale. The pool area have a choice of party central or more relaxing. Nice location across from the beach but 49 bucks for an umbrella and a couple chairs??? Rip off. The beach staff has nothing to do with hotel but worth mgmt looking into a couple of passes to the beach would be... More

We fled Key Largo Hilton and found a last minute package deal at the W, booking a room and a suite. What a contrast! Great greeting at every stage (luggage, car valet, front desk, concierge) and the Starwood upgrade on the suite was a very nice touch. 2 balconies, each with an ocean view. Property was immaculate, rooms modern clean... More

I've been in FLL several dozens of times (work related). I've also had the change of walking several times on the beaches. But when I first decided to be there for a week on vacations with my family, I could not imagine what was about to happen on my W Fort Lauderdale stay. First, at check in, as an SPG... More

The W Fort Lauderdale does not disappoint. The super friendly and helpful staff are second to none. Nice big, clean rooms with ultra comfortable beds made it a family vacation to remember. With 2 teenage kids there was plenty to do. The beach is right across the street and the pool and cabana service are great. I definitely recommend staying.... More

The moment I arrived at the hotel the service was great. I arrived a few hours earlier, but I was able to access the amenities the hotel had to offer from the pool to the living room lounge. My overall experience was nothing, but greatness. Thanks W.
