I have stayed at a few W Hotels - San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles and have always been very pleased! So, I was excited to stay at the W Fort Lauderdale prior to our Eastern Caribbean cruise. I cannot express how disappointed we were. First, let me say that the service was still outstanding, and the location is good, but the hotel itself - BIG disappointment! First thing - a number of the hooks on the curtains in our room were off the rod (enough that housekeeping should have noticed) so when closing the curtains for the night we had to call housekeeping to have them fixed before we could go to sleep. Next, the shower is a clear glass wall looking into the bedroom - no privacy even if you wanted it. The room is very small. And we are Starwood gold members, but were not upgraded. The counter in the bathroom is non-existent - no room to put anything - just a sink and a little tiny bit of room on each side. The worst part was the bed, so uncomfortable (hard) that I had to ask for extra pillows to cushion the mattress so I could sleep without waking up uncomfortable. All in all, we wished we would have stayed at the Westin which is right next door.
