The Westin Beach Resort, Fort Lauderdale
Ranked #31 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Stayed here as part of a visit to Fort Lauderdale. The overriding best feature of this hotel is its location. There are two towers linked by a walkway. I stayed in the North Tower and had a room overlooking the ocean and swimming pool. Great view to wake up to.

Most of the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was of a good size. The bathroom was modern and well equipped. There is a nice swimming pool however it does get very busy. If you are not there early enough in the morning it's not easy to get a sun lounger. There is also a spa and gym are good if you have the time.

There's a choice of restuarants and also a Starbucks if you wish to dine in.

Room charges are on the high side which I assume is due to the location.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and the friendly service of the staff has always impressed me- from the front desk greeting me as well as the housekeeping team and the efficient valet.
They go out of there way to provide whatever is needed to make your stay more comfortable. In this past case, it was a running map for the beach!
I did encounter an odd noise problem in the middle night in the vents in my room and the front desk graciously remedied the issue.
The room I was in was a bit "worn" particularly the carpet but other than that it was fine. I like that they have a small refrigerator in the room.
There is a Starbucks in the building (YAY!) as well as a Shula's and a spa and the staff there too is very nice.
I stay here when I want to relax and then at The W one block away when I want to be "in the scene"- the hotels are so very different but both excel in the service aspect as well as being right acrosss the street on beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach!

We went from May 3 till May 10 2014, We go every year for our Anniversary Week. We love everything about it, We go to Shula's breakfast every morning, your choice to sit inside or outside, overlooking the ocean. Our waitress Desiree Francis greets us every morning, she was so pleasant, friendly outstanding in her service and a beautiful smile every morning to be greeted by. We enjoy the pool, our room was clean and overlooking the ocean was incredible and breathtaking. The beach is conviently located across the street from Westin and all you have to do is go to the 3rd Floor and go through a walking tube, that goes over the street and you go down with an elevator and there you are at the beach to get your chair and umbrella. It's located in a very good location that you can go to stores nearby. The weather is incredible and we always have a great experience and would go back every year for sure. PS Everything is excellent in the Hotel and Service for whatever your needs are, the Concierges is very helpful and knowledgable to your needs. I recommend this Westin and we love the staff and service and everything about it.

Room Tip: Ocean View or Partial Intercoastal I feel any room would be fine.

Was at the hotel for a business convention. Perfect location across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. Staff very pleasant and stay enjoyable. Would have liked to stay the weekend.
Great hotel if you like the beach. Have stayed at this location before and have always had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. Average room if you don't have the view.

My daughter treated me to a Mother/Daughter weekend at the Weston Beach Resort and Spa to celebrate my significant birthday. She was a Starwood member at a premier level and may have received extra attention as a result, though she didn't use points to book the room. Well, the place was perfect! Our room was spacious and overlooked the beach, and when we arrived, there were two delicious cupcakes on a platter with birthday greetings from the hotel to honor my significant birthday. Soon after our arrival the customer service rep called to see that everything was satisfactory. My daughter had forgotten her laptop charger, and the customer service rep brought one to the room to see if it would work. The next morning we enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Everyone was cordial and helpful. After breakfast we went to the beach across the street and were treated well by the attendant who supplied us with lounge chairs and towels. Stay here if you want a real treat.

Nice beach front property with basic resort amenities. The rooms were nice and we have been back 3 times. Get to the pool decks early if you would like a space and I would not eat on site because of the okay food and pricy items.
Checking in and out have always been a challenge for us due to the lack of front desk associates. If you walk 15 minutes north, there are nice restaurants and beach shops - nonetheless, the beach across from hotel is nicer than most. Walk 15 minutes south, you will run into bars and night life. 10 minutes walk to Water Taxi. Not a bad place to stay, you definitely pay for it but a nice entry level resort.

Room Tip: There are two towers, pick the one above conference center, it is quieter in the night.
