We extended our vacation from the Caribbean and stopped in South Beach for 3 nights. We booked an Oasis Suite at the W and we're not disappointed. Many of the previous reviews were negative and I found them all to be inaccurate.
Our room was great and very functional. There was 3 of us and the suite had 1 bedroom with a separate theater room with a queen size sofa bed. The suite also had 1 1/2 baths. To my wife's surprise she called about linens for the the sofa bed and two muscle bound men showed up bearing linens. They made up the bed and were very friendly. My wife then wanted more things to go wrong in the room so that she could call once again.
Our intereaction with the W staff (valet, front desk, pool staff and conceirge) was great. The hotel was very busy because it was the kick off to Swim Fashion week and the hotel was hosting several parties. One would have thought we would have been treated like outsiders. Rather we felt like we belonged and the staff went out of their way to meet our needs and make our stay memorable. We were even invited to the fashion show/party that the hotel was hosting,
The infinity pool is small but there were plenty of free chairs. The chairs on the beach were also free. There was a charge for a daybed and/or umbrella. Both the beach and pool and plenty of staff available to serve you food or drink.
Obvously this is South Beach and the hotels are pricey. However, we felt that for a ocean front hotel and the level of service that we recieved it was well worth the price.
This was our first stay at a W property and I would absolutely stay there again. If all W hotels are like this then I will be a returning customer.
