The W. Ft. Lauderdale is a great hotel to stay at if you are in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. I would highly recommend this hotel and I will be staying there myself again. The location is very convenient - close to FLL and right across the beach. Also close to restaurants and bars. The service was remarkable, all staff were...

I live in Fort Lauderdale just a few minutes from the hotel in a very nice building but I still love staying at the W. The place is always immaculately clean, the staff is great and the service is great. The Bliss Spa is awesome and relaxing. The Pool is my favorite place to hang. I always get a cabana...

Upon arrival I was greeted with the most respect, the service was consistent throughout my stay. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. The location is great, close to shopping, right on the strip, lots to do within walking distance and very close to Las Olas where you have an extensive selection of restaurants. I would recommend this property who...

I booked one night through a no-frills site and wasn't expecting much. I just wanted to be the water at the end of a very long and personally difficult day. The reception staff was amazing and really wanted to understand what would make me happy. I jokingly said a tub and balcony and a drink. The other person at reception...

We have just returned from a quick trip to Ft Lauderdale and a stay at the W Hotel. This is our second time at the property, and won’t be our last. We love the location and proximity to the beach and shops and restaurants on Las Olas. Being a Starwood Gold member, we were upgraded to a Oceanfront room, which...

I was staying with a group of friends for my sisters birthday over the past weekend and it was completely amazing. From check in to check out, everyone was super attentive and non scripted. The property is gorgeous, especially the Living Room lounge and the terrace view of the ocean front, simply to die for. Saturday night was pretty crazy...

I've been to this location a few times now and most recently for a wedding. I have to say they've really got it all down right here from the second you pull up at valet, the service and attention to detail is incredible.
