“Cant Beat the View!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Unbelievable view from ocean front rooms. Hotel is literally across the street from the beach. Rooms are very comfortable with modern decor. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Traveled for business. Great conference facilities.

I have been here twice. In 2012 and in 2010. Both times, my party and I had a great time. The rooms have nice modern decor, and are very well situated, esp if you have the "ocean front" type. The pool is very nicely located on the beach, which is easily accessible by the private overpass. The service is great and there are many nice restaurants within walking distance. Will definitely go back.

I spent 2 nights here with my company. The hotel is situated across the street from the beach. Right in the middle of the strip. Its a very nice location.

There is a full starbucks on location which is a plus as I'm a starbucks fan. And a Shulas on the beach. The room was clean, had a flat screen on the wall, and all the regular amenities. A nice pool area with bar was on the second floor I believe.

The food here was easily some of the best hotel food I've ever had. No joke. Was really good. I highly recommend if you have to put on a meeting. The food was just amazing.

Where I think they can improve are two areas. First, I woke up with a major headache one morning at 5:00 AM. They wouldn't sell me any advil and told me I could walk 10 mins. down the street to the local CVS. I've stayed at other places that are more accommodating at off hours for guest requests like this. And second, don't tell me you will call me when my room is ready and then never call.

Nice place.

The title says it all. The room and bathroom were dirty at check in. The sink area in the bathroom had not even been wiped down as there was soap residue around the sink. The carpets were sticky with something. The TV remote had something stuck to it, food I hope, and didn't work. The room had two beds and both were extremely soft and worn with one being so hammock like that I couldn't stand to sit or sleep on it. For a Westin, very disappointing. Actually, for any hotel, just plain bad.

This is great "newer" hotel right on Ft. Lauderdale beach. While the hotel is set up for business meetings, it hosts a lot of vacationing families, making for some interesting elevator rides. I was given an ocean front room which had a great view, see photo. The room is not set up for much privacy though, as the bathroom has shutters for doors AND a window into the sleeping area, see photo. If you enjoy your alone time in the bathroom, this may not be a good hotel for you. They have all of the amenities that you would expect from a Westin. There is no self parking. The hotel has several food options, but you are right on A1A and there are a plethora of choices within walking distance. I would stay here again, on business or on vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean front room.

Stayed 4 nights at this Westin in Feb/2013 just ahead of a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. Have virtually nothing but good things to say. Location is wonderful...just across from the beach and walking distance from the various bistros etc. in the area. Just a short walk away from the Water Taxis, etc. and a decent but do-able walk from the Las Olas action.

Room was wonderful (we paid extra for an upgrade to an Oceanview room). Starbucks coffee in the room. Bed great. Amenities all good. Free newspapers, etc. Staff ESPECIALLY cheerful, attentive and friendly. Kudos to management for cultivating a positive employee culture.

On the downside, I would add:
1. Only valet parking was available, and it cost $28 per day; ouch. There are no other options here, sadly. Having said that, the valet staff was excellent and I never waiting more than a couple of minutes.

2. Internet access in the room was $14.95 which I find OUTRAGEOUS. IMHO, there should be NO additional charge for this. Having said this, access was free in the lobby, although it was sometimes hard to get in, and response time was at times slow.

3. Louvered doors in the bathroom were unfortunate. Made for noisy visits to the loo whether one was blow-drying hair or performing other "tasks".

4. We did not make use of the pool area, which looked great, because there was insufficient shaded areas (we cannot take direct sun but like to be out in it).

5. At the beach, chairs were available but an umbrella costs $20 per. This seemed excessive in our view; it should be included in the rate.

Notwithstanding these points, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Westin and would seriously consider staying there again (depending on the rates available).

Room Tip: Ocean view highly desirable, depending on incremental cost.

If location is key for your decision, then this is the hotel. Afew blocks from everything or a cheap taxi ride to other places. Everything we wanted seemed to be within 3 miles of the hotel, we like to walk around a check things out so this hotels was great. The rooms have awesome ocean views and a surprisingly comfortable chaise lounge. Great location.
