My husband and myself stayed at this Hotel for two weeks this year as well as two weeks last year and will continue to stay for years to come. The location, warm and friendly staff,amenities, and comfortable room make it hard to stay anywhere else.The hotel's staff is so warm and welcoming , they enhance your stay and make you feel so comfortable that we stay here even though we have family in Aventura, Boca and Miami. The location is fantastic, right in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale, with Las Olas a stone's throw away, restaurants, beaches, Galleria Mall as well, the area is great for walkers with a beautiful walk way by the beach. Fabulous boutique type hotel with everything you need for a fantastic stay.

We stayed for 2 days at the Westin Beach Fort Lauderdale prior to our cruise. We had an upgraded suite which we really appreciated thanks to our Starwood platinum status. The hotel was fine for a couple of days and is in a great location, walking distance to some beach restaurants and 2 minutes from the water taxi stop which is a great way of getting around Fort Lauderdale. The only drawback I will comment on is what has previously been stated - the bathrooms. They have been modernised but still very small (the louvred doors did not bother us but you had to move inside in order to open the door, as I said fine for a couple of days but this could grate after a few days.
I would like to mention and give a big thanks to George the concierge who even though we only stayed 2 days, gave us all the tips we needed to find our feet in Fort Lauderdale and nothing was too much trouble. He is their best asset.
The pool area is ok, but just for a few days, but need to remember that even though the hotel has been 'modernised' there is a limit to what they can do and it still felt a bit tired, but this is the case for many fort Lauderdale hotels.
we would return for a short stay pre or post cruise

This was a really nice place to stay. I was in town on business and had to tack on another day and upgrade my room to accomodate a meeting. The hotel went out of its way to assist me in all aspects of my stay. I would highly recommend this hotel for both business and family travelers. It just had a very, very helpful and friendly staff.

We came for the weekend and were very pleased with the room and staff. The service is excellent. They catered to everything we needed. Perfect little spot for the Winterfest boat show. Really?? No free internet? Aweee - come on! I'm paying $200 for the room and $26 for parking. Gas Stations give away 'net these days. What's up w/ that?

I stayed at the Westin on the beach for one night and 2 days, just to relax a little after a business trip. It is really great and perfect for a quick getaway. Literally steps away from the beach, very easy access. There is a Shula's Steakhouse on the premise as well as a Starbucks (but I couldn't find it), also a grill restaurant up at the pool area. There are also a plethora of other restaurants within a half mile walk of the hotel.... prices there were a little cheaper.
Nice rooftop pool overlooking the ocean, I didn't get in it because that was when the cold front was coming through South Florida, but there were a couple folks in it. Water seemed too cold for me.

Staff was friendly, room was nice and clean and modern.
Bathroom door was weird... it wouldn't open all the way, it ran into the toilet.
I ordered room service one night, it was excellent... a Filet and Mashed Potatoes.
Concierge hooked me up with a running map for my daily walk, so I know my distance and route to walk on the beach.

Everything else was great, I would highly recommend this hotel.

I had stayed at the other Westin Ft. Lauderdale the night before and they were both very nice. The Fort Lauderdale hotel seemed a little more swanky. Of course I had a maxed out exercise suite at the Ft. Lauderdale location and was pretty impressed with that room. At the one on the beach I just had a regular King room.

What amazing service from the staff at the Westin Beach Resort! My wallet fell out of my purse during the cab ride from the airport, and the staff worked diligently to call all the cab companies in Ft Lauderdale! The concierge and Courtney worked so hard to find the cabbie! My vacation was saved!! With wallet returned, now we can enjoy the beautiful hotel, beach, and city of Ft Lauderdale!!

Jorge, the concierge at the Westin Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale was a model of patience, concern and helpfulness during my recent stay at the hotel. I was very worried about whether I would be able to get onto an earlier flight home and he went the extra mile for me, waiting patiently to speak to someone at the airline and getting as much information as he could for me.

His wonderful calm and warm smile made this stressful time much easier to take.

Thanks, Jorge!
