I have to say that the hotel looks amazing after the remodel which was hard to accomplish since it looked sexy and sophisticated before. The front desk agent Herveline was a breath of fresh air from other hotels I have stayed at. From her cheerful greeting when we walked in to her helping us with our bags. The bag ambassador...

Reviewed January 24, 2017 via mobile

After a bad taste in my mouth at the Westin nearby I was blown away by the hospitality of Sandra at the front desk. She reminded me what old school traveling used to be like! Not only did she greet me with a big smile, but when they had upgraded me to a 2 bedroom residence suite (larger than my...

Just finished a multi million dollar makeover. Very welcoming, modern surroundings, split into two towers. The East tower is closer to the ocean. Modern comfortable rooms, pretty large too. Great pool (Wet East) super poolside service, cabanas and double beds available for reservation and a good light food bar, also poolside. The steak house is awesome, best steak I have...

We've been coming here annually for the past several years. Lovely suprise this year in the decor. They recently (Jan 2017) completely renovated the entire hotel. It is super stylish and chic. Carpets, walls, bed furniture - everything is new and super stylish. My only reservation for not giving this place 5 stars was some basic facilities were lacking during...

Hello chippaul, Thank you for your review and your continued loyalty to W Fort Lauderdale. We love our $55 million dollar renovations too! Glad you got to enjoy all that's new at W Fort Lauderdale.

W Hotels can be spotty. The one at the LA airport is truly garbage. The one in Westwood is terrific. The one in Tines Swuare is below par. The one in Ft Lauderdale is beautiful. The layout is inconvenient but the rooms are perfection.

This is my 2nd time staying at "The W Fort Lauderdale" and I LOVED it. First there are a "few things" that you need to know. This hotel is very unique, hip, classy and from what I see...for the younger/GenX crowd. The first challenge is actually finding an entrance into the property, very difficult. There is still some construction going...

This review will be 2-fold. First - The Hotel itself is stunning. Architecture is amazing, and the floors, textures, and lighting are great. Confusing check-in though after dropping off car at valet - "Go down that hall, get on elevator, go to 4th floor for check-in". I've never heard of a Lobby being on the 4th floor. Alyssa at check-in...

We stayed at the W Ft. Lauderdale for one night, pre-cruise. The room we were originally assigned to was quite small and minimally furnished and had a poor view. Ultimately, we were able to upgrade to a wonderful and large suite with an amazing ocean front view and huge indoor and outdoor space. Kudos to management for taking care of...

We were an inconvenience to this hotel!

Pubic hair in the tub. See through shower and bathroom. Horrible beds and linens. Moved next door to the Westin ft Lauderdale breach resort after waking up. They overcharged our cc, and do not believe them on using spg points! Once you give them your cc, you are done. Immediately charged our cc, even though we checked in with points....
