The grounds, the pool and the beach were all great! The hotel rooms were great and well kept. You may want to get to the pool a little early if you want a good spot. The food by the pool was great as well.

Rooms are dark, balconies are great with great views. Food is excellent as is the pool. Better than almost any other W in the world IMO. Right on the boardwalk. A little far north but that's a good thing.

We live in Dubai and we are accustomed to five star resorts all over the world, but our stay at W South Beach has been the most memorable experience truly had. The W South Beach is a state of art property with everything you would expect from a top 5* resort. The room size and the spectacular ocean views from... More

Topline: This a great hotel. Well appointed, good service, nice on-property options for dining/spa/chill, good beach access, and overall a good location, unless you want to be in the heart of SoBe action. I don’t stay at W Hotels all that often, but when I do, I’m always struck by a few things: the rooms are better appointed and larger... More

Just completed a stay at the W during the week of Aug 12th. Awesome hotel and experience. From check-in to check-out the service by the staff was exceptional. At check-in, the young lady (Karla?) was thorough and brief. She went through all of my benefits as an SPG and AMEX Plat member. I also utilized the hotel's concierge staff prior... More

I stayed here in a 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor over Mr chows resturant. The suite had a full kitchen, 2 and half bathrooms with washer and dryer it was basically a condo.

We stayed at the hotel in March 2012 for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The room (fabulous suite) was large, comfortable and with ocean view. The food was good, both at breakfast and by the pool, and service was efficient. In this respect, I noticed that the hotel has a very reliable and responsive security: one day I... More
