My fiance and I stayed at the W South Beach for 9 days around Christmas. When we travel we are used to staying in 5-star hotels and appreciate food, service and atmosphere. We were very pleased with our room- a beautiful crisp, white suite overlooking the ocean and directly over the pool on a mid-level floor. We had modern appliances,... More

What can I say? After a month long trip to South America which included my son's graduation from high school in Bogota, Colombia and a trek up to Macchu Pichu. I had once in a lifetime photographs that can never be replicated. 1 in 4 people stole both of my cameras and mobile from my room at the W. We... More

The newly open W, gives you a first impression on an amazing luxury hotel, very tastefully done, but then, from the check in till the check out you think that all the staff is temporary being tested for the job that they are doing. When we arrived at the hotel at around 2 p.m. the room wasn't ready. No big... More

WSouthBeach, Manager at W South Beach, responded to this review

We welcome your feedback! Many of our guests wished to linger a little longer during the holidays and stay past the property’s 11am check-out time. Looking to get a head start, we had a large number of guests arriving at 9am, while check-in time is 4pm. We have implemented a new procedure that compensates guests who pre-confirm they will check-into... More

Compared with other flagship W's in the brand - Hong Kong, Seoul, New York, this W should be avoided. Starwood considers this hotel a category 6 because of the location, not the hotel quality, and you are paying points or dollars strictly for South Beach, not the quality of a better property. Rooms are fine but nothing extraordinary. Most rooms... More

I was to stay here for a week when it first opened Jul'2009. I specifically asked for an Ocean Front Room with a balcony. Not Ocean View...Ocean Front. When I showed up they put me in a suite looking right at an abandoned Days Inn. When I talked with reception they said there were no Ocean Front rooms available. I... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week, starting Jan 2nd. Because of the very helpful advice of another TripAdvisor contributor, I contacted the hotel weeks before check-in date and insisted on requesting a quiet room on a high floor w/ a view and away from the noisy club nextdoor. I was told (by email) that the... More

I spent 9 days at the W South Beach before Christmas. Everything about this hotel is amazing. The lobby is spectacular. The rooms are huge. The bathrooms are great. The pool area and the beach are fantastic. I also found the staff extremely friendly (except for one of the concierges who sent me to an Italian restaurant when I was... More

Three times a day, as regular as clockwork, the mats in the elevators in the W South Beach are switched between "Good Morning", "Good Afternoon" and "Good Evening". It's just a shame that this level of attention to detail is so rare in this hotel. On the positive side, it is it a beautifully designed hotel. The lobby is stylish... More

While I definitely agree with other viewers that its a very nice hotel, the rooms are very nice and well appointed. However this hotels lacks in service terribly. When we checked in, our rooms were not ready so they stored our luggage. When we finally got our room and called for our luggage, one of the bags was missing and... More
