This hotel was fantastic. I loved the views, I loved the pool. There was a steak restaurant in this hotel that was amazing. In the morning, we had a delicious breakfast at the same restaurant. The room was super hot, I can't wait to stay here again.

Truly enjoyed this hotel and the experience it provided. Great service, great hotel, great location. Couldn't have asked for more during my brief visit to Fort Lauderdale. They were very busy and could not get me a room until 5:30 PM but they were very accommodating and apologetic and upgraded me to a suite. I don't have a lot of... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in to the W. An upgrade from a standard room to a two bedroom condo with the most amazing view of both beach and bay. Thank you Bobby! The condo was clean and comfortable and when in the room we spent most of our time sitting on the balcony. I would definitely stay... More

I just completed my third stay at the W in Fort Lauderdale and already have two more trips planned to return! I’m currently working on finishing up a mattress run to catapult myself to Starwood platinum, and as I still have another ten stays to complete by year end, I’m only doing one night stays at each property to make...

I chose this property to have a weekend getaway with friends from high school and college. It by far surpassed our expectations for value, amenities, and service. The food, drink and customer service was outstanding. Alex who attended to our chairs by the pool was a real stand out. I can't say enough good things about this property.

Request for two rooms on the same floor was not met. One of the rooms was not ready until 5:30 p.m.( from 4 p.m. check in hour). Keys for on of the rooms did not work. No coffee pot in rooms, no hooks for towels in bathroom, shower opens view from outside, this offers no privacy because anybody can open... More

I have visited the W in Ft Lauderdale twice a year for the past 3 and have always had an excellent experience. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and very comfortable. In the past, I have stayed at other hotels in the area, but the W is by far my favorite.

I stayed at this property for the July 4th weekend and I must say that I truly enjoyed my stay. I was located on the 11th floor with a partial ocean view. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The decor was very contemporary. Any requests made for extra pillows, towels, toiletries were fulfilled quickly. The staff... More

Located across street from ocean. Walk to shopping, restaurants, and bars. Contemporary hotel. Couple of small issues. Waited and waited for our luggage to be brought to us. Finally got it ourselves. (Told we were not supposed to do this as they would get in trouble. We waited 30 minutes. Wanted to change clothes and see sights.) Very modern room.... More
