This hotel has a lot to be improved upon. While the hotel rooms are fine, there are a few issues that need to be worked on. First of all, there are not enough beach chairs. Not even close to enough. It is just poor management that is the case. Secondly, I am a platinum Starwood member and I requested bottled water to my room and they almost charged me for it until I pointed that out. I realize that I as there during spring break, so I'm sure the hotel is overworked during this busy time, but the staff were not as receptive or nice as I have come to expect from the normally consistent Westin hotels. It's the little things that make a difference and this Westin failed at every mark.
I almost changed my stay to the W two doors down, should I come back to Ft Lauderdale I would definitely stay at the W instead of the Westin. It was a significantly nicer hotel for not a lot more money, the staff were hospitable and more service oriented and the facilities are far superior.
