Great hotel. Incredible views from many rooms. Perfect location next to the beach. This location is beautiful and the beach is a mere 50 feet from the front doors. Within walking distance to many awesome dinning and entertainment options. Rooms are clean, updated and tastefully decorated. Staff was pleasant and even some technical issues with room doors were not enough... More

The entire staff at the W get an A+ in my book. They were so friendly and helpful. They offered water as we entered and left the hotel and always asked if we needed directions. I loved the location of the hotel because it was so convenient. Had a great room on the 19th floor with a view of the... More

When one of the members of my party broke our wine bottle in the lobby during check-in, the staff was gracious enough to send a replacement to our room. In addition to the hotel's service, our group enjoyed the hotel's pool. Great mix of people and plenty of space to spread out.

DO NOT stay here during renovations. They are not forthcoming about how extensive the disruption is. The language on the website and the pre-visit welcome email makes it seem very mild. It's like staying in a construction site. There are cranes and dug up areas of the property that are very visible. I was woken up at 8am to the... More

Loved the stay. I can tell the staff was doing their best to make our stay enjoyable in spite of the construction going on. I did not realize the extent of the construction and not being met by an awesome lobby and nighttime chill areas. I was kind of set back from what I normally see in a W property.... More

I checked in and checked out an hour later. Loud/loud/LOUD construction noises in room, when asked if I could move, was advised it's the same everywhere. When I advised the phone in my room didn't work, they said use another. When I advised the internet was not working, they said it had been out since yesterday. Never would have checked... More

We stayed at the Hilton next door for four years running (nice enough place, terrible service) and finally decided to give the W a try. We could not believe the difference in service! They treated me, my husband and my three young children like royalty. Every member of the staff bent over backwards to make sure that we enjoyed our... More

Think twice before staying here during renovations. Large main pool is closed. Lots of jack hammering even on weekends. Not with the nightly fee when the hotel is so far away if what you expect from a W. Front desk managers have no clue.

I'll start with the small annoyances: Yes if you sit on the balcony you will not hear the ocean but the sounds of jackhammers and dump trucks. It also makes getting around the hotel like a jigsaw puzzle. Wish you could get ice without calling someone to ask for it or at least enough room in the fridge to put... More
