We were visiting for business last weekend, which ends up being pretty boring. This hotel's location and staff was just what we needed to salvage the trip. When we arrived, there was no bellman to be found. With our equipment we needed some help storing everything with the hotel, so the valet guy Ryan did it all. He had another valet guy park the car while he loaded our stuff into the storage area and showed us where to go in order to use the skywalk to the beach and where to get a good drink while poolside. Even though the conferences and presentations were a snore, this valet guy was there all weekend to tell us what was good, things to do, best pizza up the street and got our car ready every time.
The rooms were clean, we were surprised there was no balcony to enjoy though. We didn't end up hitting the gym but it looked nice and clean too. A nice secret passageway we found leads right from the hotel to the Starbucks, certainly a huge bonus. Checking out was easy and getting to the airport was quick. Overall a great stay at the Westin. FYI Fort Lauderdale beach is way nicer/cleaner than Miami Beach.More
