We stayed in a "Fabulous Studio" and it was fabulous, on the 8th floor so stunning views of the ocean, beach, city to the north from the spacious balcony. Attention to detail in the rooms is amazing, furniture modern, swanky, and still very comfortable. And the bathroom is huge, walk-in shower, separate WC, and every amenity my wife loves. Pool area is well laid out but it does get crowded so you need to nab your spot in the morning, but we preferred the beach...perfect club style set-up, cushy lounges ideal for catching rays or a siesta, excellent drink service. Full-size outdoor basketball court was great for getting some exercise. And the hotel common areas, lobby, gardens, are well-planned spaces that are open yet intimate. And if you like to people watch, have a drink in the Living Room Bar before going out to dinner. People dress up to go out in South Beach, and I was fascinated looking at all the women's.....shoes! Really! Every color, style, material you can imagine.....the girls in Sex and City would have gone wild looking at all those shoes. How they can walk in those super high heels, don't ask me. So imagine the rest....models everywhere, and the nightlife is spectacular. Aside from beaching and eating, we were in South Beach to dance....Salsa and Bachata mainly, but Merenge, Cha Cha Cha, and others as well. The W was the ideal headquarters to enjoy it all.
