Everything was perfect. Beds heavenly, clean and all the employees were fabulous. I want to mention Storme. He looked after us and made sure all our needs were met. He is to be commended.
Thank you for a delightful three days!!!!

Room Tip: You want a view of the ocean.

Went for a weekend getaway with friends. Location was good... across from the beach with a walkway connection. We had beach front rooms and the rooms are slightly smaller than most Westin rooms I've been to but still very comfortable. Check in and check out were very quick and all the staff in the hotel were very friendly and accommodating.

Stayed here for two nights the last week in June. While my general impression of the hotel is ok, I really feel that the $32 PER NIGHT fee for valet parking was rather excessive. That equalled almost 20% of my room rate.

The hotel in general is nice and in a good location. The staff was friendly. The room had its ups and downs. The bed and pillow were quite comfy. The view from the south tower ocean view room was great. The walls, however, are paper thin. It was so easy to hear the conversations from the neighboring rooms it almost seemed like we were sharing a room with them. The only time I couldn't hear what was going on in the other rooms was when the noisy A/C unit drowned them out.

All in all, the next time I'm in Ft. Lauderdale I will probably opt for one of the other many hotel options to choose from.

If it's Westin, it's comfortable, nice and friendly people and this particular had an amazing location. No matter which you room you stay, go out in the morning for an amazing sunrise. The only concern is that the hotel is too widespread and you might need to walk a little.

Location is nice- across from the beach. We had an oceanfront room which was modern and very clean. And I am picky about the cleanliness of a room. we had no problems at all.
You do have to walk a little south of the hotel to get to where a lot of restaurants are located. Would definitely stay again.

From the beginning to the end of our visit to the Westin beach resort and spa, our lives became a dream. The adventure on the salty ocean breeze tantalized our every thought. Although the "heavenly scent" was mildly sneeze inducing, it was only a minor drawback on what will most likely become the most memorable trip to Fort Lauderdale of our lives. Storme, the bellman, made the experience worth it, and truly made us feel at home. If you are thinking about visiting this location, I encourage you to take the plunge.

From check in to the moment we left the driveway the staff went out of their way to make us feel like royalty. The person at the front desk delighted in telling us he's upgraded our room because we were starwood preferred guests. The view from the 12th floor room was beach-beckoning but the room was comfortable enough to entice my husband to flop down and take a nap. From the bed linens to the shower, everything was intended to comfort and pamper. The only issue with the room was the noisy air conditioner - a leftover, I suspect, from the old building. As a plus, the room was wonderfully quiet in all other respects and was soundproof from neighboring rooms. If you are interested in the beach note that this is the only hotel in the area that provides a skywalk access over the busy A1A highway that runs in front of the hotel. It makes beach access so much easier. Pool was beautiful and cabanas offer privacy for those who desire that. The conference facilities that were adjacent to the main tower were perfectly adequate. By car we were minutes away from the luxe Galleria mall and some great restaurants. And just taking the car out (valet parking is required, not an option and it is pricey) was a pleasure due to the handsome smiles and friendly valet staff. They really deserve a superior call-out!

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront and high up (above the pool on 3 - floors go through 14) if you want a stunning v...
