We had a great relaxing stay at W South Beach. The staff was so accommodating; they made you feel like you were somebody. The concierge made restaurant recommendations (and reservations) and they were spot on each time. Yes, there are not enough beds around the pool, but we were put on a waiting list and had two beds within 2 hours. Just keep going back to check in so they know you’re serious. Yes, it’s expensive, but everything in South Beach is expensive. We had the Spectacular Studio Suite and it was awesome. Two balconies, 1.5 bathrooms, kitchenette, 17th floor, simply wonderful. FYI 18% gratuity is added to all checks, even when you dine out of the hotel, so be careful not to over tip.
The only bad this was we played tennis two of our days there and they did not have tennis rackets for us to use, they only had racquetball rackets. We survived!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for noise control. Lifts are very fast and there are 4 of them.

We stayed in the spectacular suite. Each room had its own balcony. Plus there was a bonus media room with a fold out couch which is perfect for children. The grounds are well kept and nicely manicured.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with a group, it makes sense to get one of their larger 2,000 + square feet suites.

As in anything, its about whats important to you. This property is notnon ocean avenue where the action to really expirieince south beach is. 10 block or so walk. So location wise..its a 3.

Rooms are nice..nothing over the top for a hotel of this claiber.

As a platinum member, I am getting really upset at the fact that the ammenities are not consistant throughout the brands of starwood. When i checked in here..no suite upgrades given.no full breakfast only continetal given, no lounge..these are the things that i enjoy as ammentires when staying at starwood properties.. Thats what attracts me...there are plenty of other choices of beautiful hotels.. This one...for the price, loation and services...is a hype hotel that with all its own buzz words like weve upgraded you from a wonderful to a cozy wozy studio...drives me crazy and is a bit insulting..i dont want to change languages..i just want clear consice information, great service and consistant brand loyalty...not happening here..its a pass next time property.

Room Tip: Different hotel...

Hello pgblack,

Thank you for your feedback. We do love our SPG Members and offer many amenities to our guests. We do try to upgrade to show our appreciation when available but due to the high demand of our suites we are not always able to. We will be sending your feedback to our Hotel Manager to address. We hope you will consider our hotel on your next trip and please send us an email with Whatever/Whenever you may need, wsobesocial@whotels.com.

I was fortunate enough to escape with the W South Beach for 4 nights last week. I travel a lot and work in the hospitality industry as well. I will say that this property is not only BEAUTIFUL but their staff is what separates them from all other hotels. After staying at this property for 4 nights, I felt like a VIP and felt like I had personal relationships with many of them.

Diego, the Concierge, was amazing. He is personable, remembered my name (from my last stay in December), and whenever I asked him to do ANYTHING for my friend & me, he always got it done RIGHT AWAY without fail. Our Acura Car Reservations were set for the entire week—and he truly made my experience in April (and December) a memorable one.

Frank, the Engineer, came to the rescue a few times throughout our stay. The moment I called Whatever/Whenever to fix a minor issue (IE the TV or Air Conditioning), Frank would show up at our door within 2 minutes and fix the issue immediately. One night, he even worked over time to help us out at 11pm with our air conditioning. It was fixed IMMEDIATELY and he was very personable as well.

Kevin (in WET) made our experience at the pool easy & relaxing every day. He assisted with our chairs, constantly checked in with us, remembered me from my stay in December, AND he always made sure that someone was assisting with our drink/food order.

Lastly, one of my favorite features of the W Brand is their partnership with Acura Car Services. Roman, our driver each day, was accommodating, knowledgeable, sweet, engaging, and made our rides THAT much more enjoyable.

We had the best & most relaxing vacation. This is by far one of my most favorite hotels!

Beautiful rooms as with all W hotels. Pricey but I was willing to pay it - I was there for a 4 day romantic get away. Friday 10 am and Saturday 9:30am - no lounge chairs available, was placed on a waiting list. Friday-never got a chair Sat - got one at 1:30.

No hot tub around the pool area? Beautiful courtyard which was not accessible to guests due to private parties in the evenings.

As a platinum member, did not get room upgrade even though I was told I was getting one. And was not able to get late check out past 12noon.

Be warned, South Beach is expensive. So be prepared to pay. I was ready to pay, just really disappointed, esp when you pay over 800$ per night for the room and not get the amenities.

Food was good at this hotel. Price the same as all other places around there.

Room Tip: Get a ocean view. Otherwise, stay at another cheaper hotel!
