“This is not really a Westin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

It feels like a 3 star at best. Mediocre service, no minibar in room, a bit hit&miss. Location is very good but not enough. Lobby bar is below Westin standards. Few miles away the Westin Diplomat feels like a luxury palace compared to this; how can they be both Westins? Some major upgrades needed.

My college girlfriends and I came here for a 20 year reunion. Everything about this place is great - nice pool, good beach access, great drinks and bartenders at pool bar And STORM! Storm rocks it! He remembered our names and made sure we had everything we needed! Love us some Storm!

My roomies from college plan a get-away every year and this year we landed at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Resort & Spa. We were upgraded to two ocean view rooms. Storm escorted us to our rooms and gave us a brief tour of the resort. Storm called to check on us every day -- even sent up fresh towels after our work-outs. Service is fantastic!! The pool is nice - plenty of chairs and different angles for sunning. The beach is steps away via a bridge that crosses the road below. Location is great - many restaurants within walking distance - concierge is more than happy to make reservations. Anything and everything we needed was provided... keeping 5 women happy for a 5 day weekend is worthy of an excellent review.

There isn't enough room for me to go on and on about how much I love staying at The Westin Beach Resort. From the second you walk through the door you feel like you're ready to relax. My husband and I live up the road but love coming here for "staycations". We just celebrated our anniversary weekend here last weekend and had an incredible experience, from Ray Alvarez at the pool to Storm who helped us with our bags, every employee went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you Westin for always providing us with an incredible experience.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have views of the intracostal and ocean ;)

We stayed at the Westin Beach FT Lauderdale this week, the resort was clean, the restrooms were clean, the room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the best of all was the service at the pool, Ray Alvarez was the pool area manger while we were there, that guy was AWESOME, he was very attentive to everyone that we saw come into the pool area, whether they were going to the beach or staying in the pool area, plus he had a wealth of knowledge about area attractions and restaurants, What a great experience.

I stayed at the Westin FT Lauderdale last week. The room was nice with a great view of the ocean. The weather wasn't great the entire time. But it didn't effect my stay because Ray the pool manager was AWSOME!!! This guy goes out of his way to make your stay great and feel at home. I will be returning to the Westin because of him.

Room Tip: Ocean front in the higher rooms feel like your on the water
