If you want a central location in South Beach, with a great pool scene and pristine beach - this is the place! We had a fabulous suite with two terraces overlooking the beach and South Beach. There are sleek modern rooms, a small gym (free of charge) and a Bliss spa on premises (and Bliss products in the bathrooms). The... More

Stayed for three nights using SPG free nights. Platinum status got me upgraded to a Fabulous studio which is 800sf w/ a 240 sf balcony. Balcony had an outdoor shower and chaise lounges and was fantastic. The bathroom had double sinks and a huge soaking tub and a gigantic glass shower. Everytime I tried calling for the Acura Experience it... More

I decided to splurge on an Oasis suite for our family for our brief stay before our next destination. We stayed in the midweek and it was costly, but worth it. Our suite had a kitchen, powder room, media room, and a washer/Dryer combo, along with the usual aspects of a suite. It is stated that we had 1151 Square... More

Had an incredible time with a group of 35 friends - the concierge was fantastic dealing with our big group and making suggestions, accommodations. Rooms are good - use SPG status if you have it for great upgrades, and request room facing the pool (most rooms have beach view, but pool AND beach is ideal). The club Wall, managed externally...

I was here Sept 21-23 for a two day get away midweek when surely the hotel was not overbooked in a very slow mid September season. First question asked at check-in by staff: Are you a Starwood preferred guest? My answer: NO! Do you want to be? NO. The entire stay went south and fast. Girl at check-in told me... More

I went to the W again recently (we had to stay there because there was an event happening there). I want to warn everyone that is Starwood Platinum that they do not care at all about Starwood status. This place is more like a club than a hotel and you should not expect a hospitable environment. The service sucks and... More

As a Starwood Preferred Guest, I recently used a free weekend night award to stay at the new(ish) W in South Beach. The location is good, and close to many South Beach attractions. It is a $10 taxi ride to the far end of South Beach, and a $25-30 ride downtown. The lobby is really nice, and the doormen are... More

I had a hard time rating this hotel because some things were absolutely fabulous and some so poor that I can't believe I am writing about them. I 100% agree with those who wrote about the attitude of the employees. I am not rich nor famous but I was a guest at the hotel and expect to be treated as... More

Stayed at the W for my birthday weekend and it exceeded my expectations. The whatever/whenever service could be described as friendly, prompt, and thorough. After every request they would always call back to make sure I had been taken care of. The staff is courteous and helpful. The pool and beach staff are not employees of the W, but do... More
