Reviewed July 29, 2011

We were there for 8 days and we would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to everything, do things and even relax....Amazing time!! Great Breakfasts everyday with the ocean waterfront view outside was amazing! A view of the strip of hotels and beaches was very convienent and relaxing mood, we had great weather and loved every single minute there!!

Room Tip: We had the room facing the ocean and looking down over the pool and the cabanas....We loved it!!

I have nothing but good comments for the staff and the location, but for some reason my room smelled like an dirty diaper when I walked in. I informed the bellman that I needed another room because it smelled so bad. The front desk informed me that they would get me another room, but that would not be until after noon. It was 7 am and I did not have to work that day, so I laid out by the pool and had lunch in cabana. The staff always made sure I had a dry towel or a drink if I was low. I did not mind waiting and by the time my room was ready I was ready for a nap and to be out of the sun.

My new room did not smell, but when I walked through the skyway to the conference area in the morning I smelled it again. I guess the dirty diaper smell was meldew and it seems to be a problem in different areas of the hotel. If they can take care of the areas that have a problem I will have no complaints about The Westin Beach Resort.

Oh, I forgot to add that the internet connection here is very slow. Even when I paid for the high speed it was slow. I can't beleive I almost forgot to add this, but it has been a few months since I was there and I was able to get a good connection in the lobby for free.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the ocean that is at least the 5th floor. You will have a great view...

Cleanliness to me is everything. The room was impecable. The bedding was a bit stiff, could have been softer. Did not try the spa, but it looked inviting when I walked by. Fitness center overlooks the ocean. Restaurant (Shulas) was to stodgy for me, lots of nice restaurants along the beach.

We stayed at this hotel a few months ago (March 2010) and I am just now getting around to writing a review about it. We initially had the 5th floor and switched to the 10th, get a high floor, the lower floors are too close to the pool, lights, noise, etc. The hotel is right on the beach but on the west side of the road but its easy enough to take the bridge from the pool area and the elevator down to the beach. They charge for unbrellas but not for lounge chairs at the beach. The pool area is not as lush as some hotels these days, but is nice. The bar and restaraunt, Shula's, is a bit lacking on service, okay, a lot lacking on service. But the food is decent. There are plenty of places to eat close that are even better. The location is near a lot of restaurants that you can even walk to if you don't mind waliking or just take a cab. We were there in March and the area is a spring break young crowd, at least at that time, but probably all the time, but the hotel itself wasn't too loud. The rooms are very nice and fairly big, although the bathrooms are not real private, with just a louvered door. WiFi, sadly as in most Westins these days, is a hefty fee, so bring your hot spot. The fitness center is really nice, typical of Westins these days, and has a cool view of the beach. If you like to run on the treadmill and people watch the beach at the same time you'll be impressed. In fact, you'll probably be impressed with most aspects of this hotel - there are better in this neighborhood, but not many, and you can get some great deals here.

We stayed one night before and one night after our Oasis of the Seas cruise at this Westin Hotel. We used Priceline and booked the hotel for almost half off the normal rates. It is about $25 cab from FLL airport to this hotel and about $25 cab from this hotel to the cruise terminal. First stay we had complimentary partial oceanview upgrade room and second stay we were complimentary upgraded to a full beautiful high floor full ocean view room. Nice pool and lots of lounge chairs with casual restaurant near pool that we did not visit. Right on the beach near the ocean, beautiful location. There is a nice spa at this hotel. I booked an 80 minute heavenly massage. Ask for coupon booklet at front desk. I got $25 off my spa treatment (still expensive normal rate was $165 for this massage) but spa was clean and nice relaxation room and jacuzzi, spa was not crowded, just saw a few other people so nice enjoyable experience. Room was very clean and comfortable. Beds had four pillows on each and beds were very comfortable. Both nights we had nice quiet rooms and slept very well. Bathroom was strange design with sliding wooden door instead of regular door that opens and closes. Also there was a shutter style window that could be opened in the bathroom peeking into the regular room which was strange. Hotel had refrigerator in room, which was nice. We ate two dinners at Shula's restaurant. Again, ask for coupon booklet at the front desk. There is a coupon for $20 off $100 spending in food. Lobster bisque soup was delicious. The crab cakes were large and mostly crab meat, very little filler and delicious. The key lime pie was good, although not the best I have ever had. The concierge was very polite and helpful with his suggestions. Checkin desk staff were also very nice. Only thing is that both times I was unable to check out of the room on the TV and had to go downstairs to the desk to check out but wait was minimal. Front desk service said they were "going green" and don't give out paper receipts so both times I didn't get a paper receipt when requested which I had never encountered before. I would definitely stay here again when in the Fort Lauderdale area and recommend this hotel to others. It would be nice if they added free high speed internet as that was expensive if you wanted it.
