“Nice hotels for adults”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Stayed at this very trendy hotel for a business meeting. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The concierge set up an everglades tour for us and we were disapointed with the quality of the tour. Would not recommend this hotel for families, it has a very adult feel to it and common areas transform into night clubs in the evening. Our room was clean, nicely decorated and quiet.

In December 2012, My husband and I enjoyed a terrific weekned at the W hotel. After an unsatisfactory experience at another hotel in Fort launderdale, we decided to check out the W hotel. Dimy, the front desk customer service associate was extremely helpful in telling us all about the hotel upon our arrival. Dimy even took the time to show us a room on a quick tour of the The W Hotel. My husband and I were impressed.

Within an hour, with the help of Matt the front desk manager and Dimy, we had switched hotels and were settled into our beautiful, Ocean front room at The W.

Everything was taken care of by your excellent staff. The statement "whatever, whenever" was truly experienced by my husband and I. The hotel had two beautiful pools, both with amazing views. Each pool was located on upper decks of the W hotel which created the amazing view. We loved the option of being able to relax at the quiet family themed pool area, equiped with lovely cabana's. The 2nd pool was a bit larger offering a social atomphere. Both pool areas had large sun loungers with thick cushions and lots of umberallas.

Our room was awesome, with a beautiful view of the ocean and the great sunset. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Hoping to return for March Break.

Love this new property. You truly feel like royalty when you choose this W. Spotless facilities and a staff that go above and beyond make you feel totally welcome. I love the card they made us fill out so that when it was time to check out our boarding passes were waiting for us. Well done!

This is an exceptional hotel. Overall it is really upper class.
Here's the good:
Excellent location. Nicely appointed rooms, nice workout area and pool. Average ironing board and iron, the hotel is in fine condition and they have very good coffee for free in the lobby in the morning. Good view from most rooms on the balcony.
The Bad:
The lobby is on the fourth floor, the TV is small, the elevators are slow, the curtains don't shut out much light at the top or in the middle in the morning (they need a drop down at the top), the bathroom has poor lighting (that's bad for us older folks). Although the rooms were very quiet overall the balcony provided a route for the baby crying sound next door so I had to close it. Oh yeah they hide the extra roll of toilet paper in the closet, not a good thing when you need it.Don't know about the parking, some nice cars in the lot.

Overall I would recommend this place if you have the money and like expensive but well located hotels.

Room Tip: higher is definitely better for the view. I was on the 14th and the view was excellent.

Really like this hotel - just spent 4 nights here. This is the 3rd year in a row our company had our Winter Sales Meeting at The W. The food was great & the service was exceptional! The staff was Super Friendly catering to your every need. Make no mistake this is a trendy but very expensive place so the service should be exceptional. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars was my cramped room - as I mentioned I stayed here 2 previous times & my room this time was much smaller than the standard room. My room was 1712 which was the first room on the left from the elevator in Tower 1. I assume all the rooms ending in 12 might be this way. If your at check in and they give you a room ending in 12 I suggest you ask for another room. Don't let this stop you from staying here. Book it and enjoy.
