We stayed at the W Ft. Lauderdale last week post-cruise for two nights. We are a family of four (incl. 12 & 16 year old). Lovely hotel/resort, right on the beach. We checked in quite early since our cruise docked at 6 a.m. We were at the hotel by 8. They took our bags and told us they would call when the room was ready. They called at 4:30. Which was fine with us since we drove to the Keys. We were given an upgrade (without asking) to an ocean/pool view room, 7th floor. Lovely pool. I also booked through AAA, and got a $50 daily breakfast credit. This was a great deal with two teenage kids. Food in the restaurant (breakfast) was excellent.
The hotel has a club/dark lighting atmosphere. Very modern décor. We noticed lots of "kids" in their 20's checking in, since the lobby turns into a club at night. The crowd at the pool also had this vibe. Not sure why you would hang out at the pool with the beach at your front door? Must be the age thing! We did go to the pool to get towels for the beach. Got some looks from all the adults there (like we were invaders). Good thing we had no intention of hanging out at the pool! I will definitely stay here again due to it's proximity to the beach and shopping.
