“This place exceeded my expectations.”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Took my 93 year old mom and niece to the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort for Easter Break. My mom needed an accessible room so our first night we stayed in a room with a King Bed walk in shower. One problem was the toilet seat was not ADA height. The gentlemen at the front desk said he would have more availability of ADA rooms the next morning and would move us the next day.
The following morning we were taken to a beautiful ADA equipped room on the 8th floor over looking the ocean. The view was magnificent. The bathroom was very large, and handicap accessible.
The beds were very comfortable, nice large refrigerator plenty of space in the room.
We enjoyed opening the curtains every morning and enjoyed the ocean view.
The pool attendants were very accommodating everyday.
The two gentlemen who worked at the beach were very accommodating to my mom.
They helped her on and off the beach everyday.
Nesland at the concierge desk was also very accommodating. He got us a great price on a car rental and made restaurant reservations for us also.
Storme the doorman was also very accommodating. He provided us with a list of restaurants on Las OLAS boulevard that were all fantastic.
Our favorite restaurant was Prime 401. Great steaks and and the best French dip sandwich.
When we would arrive back after dinner and storme would bring our groceries up to our room. He really went above and beyond to accommodate any of our needs and did it with a smile.
I have never stayed at a Westin Hotel.
This hotel was amazing. We hated to leave as we had a spectacular relaxing and enjoyable 8 day stay.
I will be back again very soon.
Thanks for taking great care of my 93 year old mom!
She really enjoyed her stay!!

Amazing Time!

Staff was amazing... Room was clean and fresh... Food was great, Pool was relaxing.

Can't say enough about the staff! They went above and beyond! I would like to point out a special Associate Stormin' the Dorrman! Can't put into words how his efforts and personal attention made us feel! Constantly greeted us with a smile and eagerness to assist with anything we needed! Also Edwin - Pool towel/chair attendant and Lian S at the pool refreshments along with Brandon at the front desk. Simple gestures and consistent customer service across the board! These are just a few of the Westin team that made a HUGE impact!

We were there for 7 days and each day was perfection!

Room Tip: Beach front room... felt like you were directly on the ocean... Loved watching the sunrise

Green Features: green program gave $5 coupon per day when you opted out of room cleaning! Heck yeah... Appetizers at dinner on the house!

Book this Westin with confidence. Beautiful clean rooms. The usual great Westin service and amenities. Located right across the beach with beach access from the hotel pool area. Speaking of the pool area, staff working there are awesome! We will return there for sure when visiting Fort Lauderdale again!

The staff was great. Food, great. Location, great. Hotel, not great. Price was way too high for what you got. Almost $44 for a room that wasn't clean;someone else's hair in the sink. No safe in one of our rooms. Air conditioning didn't work in one of our rooms. Phones didn't work. Show was dirty. Hot tub too hot; burned our friend. Staff was always on it to fix things, but at that price it should have been like the Ritz.

We stayed 2 nights at this property which was across from the beach. For the price, we were not impressed at all. We have stayed at very comparable hotels that more than exceeded our expectations. The concierge was not helpful at all, and gave us inaccurate information. However, the pool guy - Joe - was extremely nice and always willing to help. We tried to call the valet for our car, and the hotel phone lines did not work. We felt we were treated like second class. Everyone should be treated the same.

One night in Fort Lauderdale and we needed a hotel right on the beach. This fit our needs perfectly. We arrived before our room was ready to enjoy a day in the sun and was informed the room would be ready shortly. Even the valet man said it would be just a few minutes. We waited at the pool for an hour not wanting to change since we thought we would be in our room sooner. Pool scene like a cruise, lots of kids around. I totally understand that we were early but would have rather heard the room would be ready in 2 hours so we knew what time frame we had. The room was oceanfront, with odd updated bathroom with cut outs… Bed was comfortable and hotel clean, if not totally new. I would stay here again if in Fort Lauderdale and needed a quick beach fix since having the free chair rentals is such a plus when on vacation.

I was concerned when my husband said this Westin is an older property but was pleasantly surprised that it's well renovated inside and is quite nice. The pool area is nice and reminded us of being on a cruise ship. Though a lot of the good seats in the sun were taken. We went across to the beach and it's great to have chairs set up for guests. I would come back here next time we are here for a pre cruise night!
