1. Rooms are OK - Pillows are a little hard and the room shows some wear/tear, but not too bad. The bathroom could use more bleaching to smell fresher. 2. The common grounds are nice. The outdoor pool and hot tub are spacious and resort-size (enough room for people to lay out without being on top of one another) 3.... More

Thank you for such a detailed review of our hotel, our location, and the services you experienced during your stay with us. Our "OK" rooms will soon be outstanding as we will soon begin a complete guest room renovation program to bring them up to the latest Westin standards. We certainly appreciate the nice comments about our 5 star service... More

Stayed here several times when doing business in Fort Lauderdale. Check in is quick and parking is not a problem. It's closer to the business district and quite a drive away from the beach. The rooms are clean and bed was comfy. There's a coffee maker and bathroom amenities. Breakfast buffet is reasonably priced for the selections available. Waitstaff can... More

I'll start with a caveat. My stay at the Westin was quite short, not even 24 hours, so I did not get a chance to experience everything at the hotel. From what I did experience, this is the best hotel at the best price I have been to over the last few years. Everything was top-notch, from the style, the... More

The actual facility here is nice. I question the idea that its a resort (you pay a resort fee) but I dont see any amenities outside of a normal hotel. We had an excellent experience with the pool service and in particular, server Juliette Saint Germain-she was lovely.

Thank you for taking the time to write. We do not represent ourselves as a resort, howver, we do accommodate many cruise related guests and a small resort fee is charged as part of the package with some of the cruise companies. We have an outstanding outdoor pool area overlooking a beautiful lagoon and we have many health-related amenities as... More

Attended a conference at the Westin Hotel. My room was spacious and located on the 8th floor. However, I was across from the ice machine and close to the elevators. I heard noise all night long so I only got a few hours sleep. The rug was stained and the grout in the shower was moldy. The shower head was... More

Use caution--you get what you pay for! That said, the room was adequate, parking was free, Internet was complementary, and I was not far from the airport! Carpet was in bad need of replacement. It was a little hard to get to, but it was okay.

Sheraton's are also nice hotels, but as a Westin Hotel we understand your sentiments. Thank you for the compliments about the room size, wi-fi, easy access and free parking. You will be glad to know that our guestrooms are scheduled for a complete renovation to be completed by early Fall. I hope we will see you again. More

I stayed here for two days for a work event. It's fine. Nothing special and nothing terrible. There is only one restaurant. There are multiple restaurants nearby. None are within walking distance. I liked the marriott nearby slightly better.

We appreciate the very good rating, but when all of our renovations are completed I think you will feel differently about our hotel. We plan to be more than slightly better than ourt neighbor. Thank you for writing. More

The location of the Hotel is in an Office Park, no were to go to or walk to , all car park. The hotel is right next to a freeway, but the noise is not a problem. The hotel it self is quite good, rooms are spacious and clean, the staff are very friendly.

Stayed there in April 2015. Hotel is nice but not well kept. It is dirty, stains on the carpet in the hallway and rooms. Rooms are dirty, toilet seat needs changing - is off white and lots of scratches as if someone took a nail and marked it up. House keeping is poor, staff at the bar by the lobby... More

Hotel rooms are just ok, a bit dated. Not much for amenities or lounge, but it works since I am always there on work vs pleasure. But what makes the stay for me is the bell staff/team... they always seem to be short staffed here but Carl and ?? (African American gentlemen, never catch his name) go above and beyond... More
