On many levels a very typical W Hotel: stylish, modern but we the bustling crowd and nightlife. Just across the street from the Beach, along Ft Lauderdale Blvd, which is the Collins Ave, Sunset Strip for Ft Lauderdale. Fifteen minutes from the airport and along the way --- any kinda of store, food diving, etc you need. Like all W's quite the scene so parking is corwded and often wait fro the 3 elevators (at least for Tower I) to your room; and those enjoying the nightlife can be noisy. Service is EXCELLENT; Friendly, helpful and everyone from Front Desk, Parking and Pool Side, remembered my name after onvly 1 intro. Pool & Gym are on the 5th floor, accessible by your hotel key. Gym is very good size and well equipped. Pool is gorgeous: abundant towels, cushioned lounge chairs, unbrellas, even high stool and a bar counter for your to star at the beach all day. Infinity Pool that right in the middle of it has a fiberglass staircase doing down "through" the pool into The Lounge on the lower level, very cool; lots of people taking pix from the stairs so it appears the swimmers are in an aquarium. The pool is like a nightclub; packed and everyone standing in the pool with their cocktails. Cocktails are very good and Room has a balcony with a cushioned lounge chair. Very average size (and apparently I was upgraded as a Starwood member); not large but fine. Shower has a glass into the bedroom - so if you are sharing rooms with someone you want more privacy with; beware. Stuffed alligator with the remote is his mouth is adorable. Only "fault" is the crowds. Go with Sea Experience at the Bahia Mar Marina about 1 - 1 1/2 miles down for diving! They also do snorkel trips. Overall STAY HERE, you will enjoy!
