“The "W" in Fort Lauderdale, rocks.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

As usual, after six years of coming here for our anniversary, we still love it. We have read where others have gotten upgraded to suites but we never have :( . Even the nice single woman we met this last time was upgraded to a two bedroom suite but did we,,,,,, noooooo!!! However, The "W" rocks in our opinion. Props to Emily Anderson. Very sweet and thoughtful.

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.

From the moment we pulled up Joseph (Bellman) was very attentive and friendly during the process of going up to the Living Room to check-in and to the room. From the check-in with Jennifer F to the check-out process with Sparkle over the phone, everything was absolutely amazing during our stay at the W Fort Lauderdale. As an SPG Gold Member, Jennifer was kind enough to upgrade us to a 2-bedroom flat overlooking the ocean and intercoastal on the 20th floor - WHAT AN AMAZING VIEW!! When looking for night-life to do in the area Julio (Whatever/Whenever), Jay (Valet), Stephanie (Front Desk), Jennifer M (Front Desk) and Danny did not disappoint, and even brought us complimentary admission tickets to our room for the different nightlife spots each night!! We were originally only staying for 2 nights, but enjoyed this hotel so much that we extended our stay to 5 nights. Stephanie, as well as Sean at the front desk were extremely friendly and even allowed us to stay in the 2-bedroom flat for the remainder of our extended stay!! A++ service by everyone at this hotel! Katie by the pool was also very friendly and attentive when we ordered food poolside. Everyone here was very professional and was genuinely caring that we enjoyed our stay. I have absolutely no complaints about this property will definitely be back to this hotel in the future and look forward to seeing some of these great associates again!!

Room Tip: Higher floors with the ocean view/intercoastal are amazing. Ask for an upgrade.

The W Hotel was A+ from the time we pulled up for valet parking to check-out four days later. Everyone was very professional, polite and seemed to genuinely care about guests. I am looking forward to vacationing here again soon! The room was clean and the view of the beach was great!

The Whotel in Fort Lauderdale is a great place to stay. I have stayed several times and find the service to be outstanding. The location is perfect for business or vacation. The staff is incredibly helpful. The roof-top ool is great place to relax.

Room Tip: Ocean views rooms are well worth the cost.

Great location! Fabulous pool and amazing views! Would absolutely stay here again. Staff was accommodating whenever we needed anything. Literally on the beach and I felt "special" at this hotel. Looking forward to my next stay here or at any of The W's

Rooms were pristine and nice. From the time we checked on to the time we left everything was perfect. Will definitely go back! Called to ensure we were checked in okay. Valet was quick and prompt. Registration desk (Jennifer) was awesome and polite.

Room Tip: You will want an ocean view room, spend the extra money, well worth it.
