“My favorite Westin”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I love this hotel, and always have an enjoyable, relaxing experience. We were staying for one night and were able to get an early check in. The room was fresh and clean, and the bed (as expected) was perfect. We enjoyed the Spa facilities as well as the complimentary beach chairs. The food at the pool bar was delicious but the soda kept coming out flat. Turns out they pour their sodas from a pitcher, not sure why but it takes the carbonation away, no one likes a flat soda! Valet was quick and friendly and room service was good. (I love the super food smoothies, great way to start your day) All in all, I'll return and recommend this property.

We checked in yesterday, and we were greeted by Fatima. The five minutes that I interacted with her were very enjoyable. Prior to handling our check in, she was handling a customer that was very demanding. Fatima was very patient with the customer and was able to finally assist her. When it was my turn, Fatima was very apologetic to me for having to wait.

We checked into our room, and we were very happy with our ocean view room. The view was gorgeous, and the room was very clean and comfortable. For being an older hotel, it is well maintained. The plantation shutter door is the only thing that could be an issue if you are not secure or comfortable with the person sharing the room. We have been married for 35 years, so this was not an issue. The beds are Westin Heavenly.

The on site restaurants are good and are not your typical over-priced-no-name-attached-to-hotel restaurants. In fact, I wish we had ate at Shula's on our first night, instead of Lulu's Bait Shack.

I normally, don't write reviews, but I felt I needed to write one because of some of the persons that wrote recent reviews that were negative concerning the appearance of the hotel, and that the staff were rude, etc. I want everyone to know that I did not see it. I will definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed at the Westin for just one night with my mom to celebrate her birthday. Everything was just right. The location is very convenient to the beach and restaurants, but far enough away from the noisy strip to avoid the craziness. The property is clean and comfortable with a private beach. And last but not least, the service was outstanding. Akeem in particular made our stay comfortable and celebratory.

Stayed here in Sept 2013 for a day, before heading home from our cruise. We had never been to Ft. Laud before, but cannot wait to come back. The hotel is located on a pretty busy street, and do not listen to GPS. It was a little confusing to find. Parking was on the high side -- $25 a day. That is my only complaint. Once we got there, our bags were carried for us, we checked in, we were escorted by the bellman to our room. On the way, he told us of all the amenities the hotel had to offer and where things were located. The room itself was very nice. We did not have a view, and didnt care to, as we were only staying one night. Bed was SO comfy, decent size TV, modern bathrooms, etc. Oh, and the soaps and toiletries, smell AMAZING. The only thing I could see being an issue with bathrooms -- privacy. They did not have real doors, just sliders, and walls were actually kind of like wood shutters? Pool area was very nice! To access the beach, you have to cross the busy street, but there is a walkway over the road and elevators. There are several chain restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Great place to spend a few days!

Just finishing up a week at the Westin in Fort Lauderdale on vacation. The hotel is superb, the staff is extremely helpful and can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Storme, affectionately known as" Stormin the Doorman" will take care of any request to make your stay effortless. We hit the beach everyday and luckily had no rain to chase us off until today at 1:15, not bad for a week at the ocean. There is a beautiful pool/bar area and Spa if you are so inclined. The hotel is about 5 blocks north of the central bar/restaurant area, so quieter at night, but an easy walk to night life. Our room is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. View from our room is spectacular. Sorry to leave in the morning.

Older, but recently renovated, oceanfront hotel with fine amenities, but exceptional service, epitomized by Bellman Storme: gracious, efficient, courteous and kind; a welcome relief from the typical go-through-the motions staff at other hotels. Well done.
