“First class hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Stayed at the W South Beach during a very busy period and I was still pleased, as this did not let them drop the ball on service.
The staff were very courteous and helpful; from the moment your car drives up to the hotel till when your car door is shut as you leave.
It was very useful to have a courtesy luxury car available to drop one within a five mile radius of the hotel but it was important to book early.
As a nice bonus, we also got to meet and take photographs with Shemar Moore in the hotel looby

We travel to Miami fairly often and have several hotels that we enjoy and routinely stay at, including the Fontainebleau, the Delano, the Ritz Carlton and the Ganzevoort (which I believe has now been acquired by the W Hotel and is being renovated.) We thought that we would give the W a try this time as we have always had great experiences at other W Hotels, including Times Square, Vieques Island and Ft. Lauderdale. I am glad that we did. The W Hotel in south beach has it all!
We were meeting our kids (all adults) so I booked two Fantastic Suites for them and booked a Mega Suite for us, as I was intrigued by the layout. Someone had posted a video of the suite online on You Tube which caught my interest, and I am happy to say that it was even better in person!
When we arrived at the hotel, the young lady who checked us in, Casey Gourly, was warm, friendly and welcoming. As it turned out, we found out during the check in of the other two suites that she knew one of our sons. She went the extra mile and sent a bottle of champagne to each of our suites. What a great ambassador for the W Hotel. She definitely won us over.
The Mega Suite turned out to be the best value in all of our Miami stays. Lots of room to stretch out, a large patio on the first floor and a second floor with a large entertainment area including a grill, more seating, and a personal jacuzzi., and access to tennis courts and a basketball court. As the kids invited a large group of their friends over, we cooked out and had a blast.
Before the group arrived, we made a special request to have the room cleaned on short notice. I didn't catch the maid's name, but she was super nice and made sure to have things in tip top shape before our guests arrived.
The television was working properly on the second floor, so their engineers, Jose and Oliver, ran out and found another TV to install in time for the Miami - UF game.
We rented a cabana at the pool. Great service and great times.
Snacks and drinks at Dutch in the evening... great experience. Breakfast in the morning at the same restaurant. We also had dinner at Mr. Chow (apparently not owned by the W). Great food and great service.
Every aspect of out stay at this hotel exceeded our expectations. From the valet to the bell service to everyone we encountered, everyone had their act together. I would give this hotel a perfect score.
We look forward to returning to the W!

Room Tip: Mega Suite.

We for a few nights during our honeymoon and this hotel is the best I have been to. Not only modern and beautiful surroundings right on the beach but the staff were so helpful, could not have done enough. Beach and pool beds so so comfortable. Would 100% go back. Think any other hotel will be disappointing compared with this!! Sheer luxury and comfort.

Room Tip: We had view of South Beach was amazing!

If you want a luxurious hotel stay and to feel pampered, this is the hotel for you. Everyone that we met, from the gentlemen opening the doors to the woman at the front desk who helped with check-in, were all so friendly and kind. The bed was beyond comfortable. And the shower had three shower-heads! So fancy! The beach there is one of the nicest beaches I've been to, which is a nice plus if you can ever pull yourself away from the amazing hotel room. My husband and I can't wait to go back!

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the superb customer service we received from Ralph Chaoul during our recent stay at the W South Beach. From the moment we arrived, Ralph made every attempt to meet our requests. Although he was unable to accommodate our request for a room upgrade, he went above & beyond to ensure that our stay was an amazing experience. Ralph's exemplary customer service truly exemplifies the W's "Whatever-Whenever" motto.

Regards,

Mr. Tim Carter

The "W" Hotel in Miami Beach was a happy, relaxing and comfortable getaway for a 5-day respite!
We were 2 adults and an 8-year old in an 1150 SQ FT "Wonderful" suite with an additional 200 SqFt balcony, ultra modern kitchen, washer/dryer, wrap around large windows throughout with direct ocean and infinity pool sweeping views.
The lack of closet hanging space was, however, dissapointing considering the room/suite size - they need to bring in an armois!

The breakfast spot by the infinity pool (with another spot inside the hotel , just as good and offering a buffet breakfast daily) was ideal and the food and service excellent.

The entire hotel property staff was cordial and helpful without being sappy-mouthed and eyes all over you.
The beach access is right at foot with terrific amenities both at and on the beach.
Gotta love it ! !

We booked again for October 2013 - a different corner south-facing suite with the same square footage and sweeping views -more closet space.

Security is good.

Room Tip: A corner suite facing south is worth the dough .

We love the Miami W
This is our 4th trip in 3 years and its always great but this trip was extra special thanks to your entire team from front of the house to housekeeping.

Special thanks to Ashley Tobon for making us feel at home and relaxed once we arrived until we checked out. It's the atmosphere that we enjoy and the customer service is what brings us back.

Rooms are modern clean and inspiring. The gardens are fun to walk through. The main pool is fun but the private pool is better. The music is always on point throughout the hotel. The food is good. The service is quick. People are nice and get what you need when you ask for it. There's some eye candy being Miami so there's good looking people to check out. Always a plus. The ocean is beautiful and right there outside off an amazing beachwalk. Ill shut up now

See you in December
