“CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BAD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

Stayed Wednesday to Sunday. As soon as we arrived Wednesday night, we were upgraded to the room that was like a condo.
It was the best experience ever! Just wish we had more time to enjoy everything.
Sunday we didn't have to leave the hotel til 130pm we were able to check out later then 11am.

Everything was just amazing.

Steak 954 was excellent just expensive. But you have to try it at least once.

Walking distance to the beach, stores and bars!

The service, pools, hot tubs, the bed, EVERYTHING! I would defiantly recommend this to my family & friends.

Thank you!

Excellent service from the front desk and concierge. They went out of their way to meet all our needs. The property has a great location....only a short walk to shopping and dining in town. The room was clean and modern. The pool area was a little crowded, but they have a more relaxed pool area at the back of the hotel. The hotel is best suited for couples, and not necessarily families.

If you are deciding where to stay in Fort Lauderdale, the W is the place to be. This place is spotless and the service is incredible. Every room has a great view, our view had both ocean and intercostal views. Be aware, yes there is a fee for parking, 30 dollars, but that is par for the course for beachfront hotels in the area. The pool deck is fantastic as well, i love going there late afternoon and feel the cool ocean breeze. Worth every penny!

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of May. For whatever reason the hotel and town was quiet, partly due to fairly poor weather I guess.

But the hotel is a very smart and cool place. The reception "living room" area is open, quite dark but ok to chill. The pool is great and a place to be seen...

The room I had was huge - a 1300 sq ft condo - the benefit of an upgrade... But an amazing room. Everything provided (I even found the washing machine after 2 nights there). If you have a family and want a home from home, but also somewhere cool, trendy and exciting, treat yourself to one of these rooms!

All in all I enjoyed staying here. And the steak restaurant 954 is fantastic - service as good as anywhere and excellent food (and the jellyfish are fab too).

Stayed for 1 night enroute to another destination. Very convenient to airport but for leisure I would stay in Key Biscayne.

This is my second time staying at this property and I love it here. Rooms are super comfortable with great views. The main pool is noisy and busy- enjoyed the scene for a while and then retreated to the quiet other pool and enjoyed a few relaxing hours there. I love being in walking distance to everything on the strip.
There are some things that guests should know that are planning a stay there though...the valet is $32 overnite...this is not South beach, but they charge for valet like it is! I waited for my car after turning in the valet stub and it never came. When I checked with the staff after about 10 minutes of waiting, a valet runner zoomed past to get my car. This happened TWICE!!! Calling down for the car did not remedy this either!
This is not a place for kids...simply said, this is not a family scene.
My one complaint...many seem trivial, but is valid. I have stayed at other high end resorts and always love the lavish towels supplied in the rooms- big and thick! The towels here are small, pulled and pilled. Really?? Please W- invest in some great towels to match the lovely showers!
None of these things will make me choose not to return, the positives at this hotel FAR out weigh the negatives!

SFLMom. Thanks for taking the time to share your review. I am so happy to hear you were able to experience both WET decks since they each carry a different vibe. I am sorry to hear the WHEELS experience did not meet your expectations. Please keep in mind our valet prices are competitive with the other hotels on the beach.
I have shared your feedback about our linens with our Style and Operations team. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

Happy travels,
