After returning from a great cruise to Jamaica and Haiti, we decided to spend the night in Ft. Lauderdale at the "W" hotel which was situated on the beach. We entered the hotel on the ground level and found the place to be very dark and very cold looking. We had a corner room on the eighth floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. The humidity was high and we were told that if we opened the patio door to be very careful because the tiled floors would become instantly slick. They were correct. The floors were treacherous. The internet access was $14.95 for one day and increased from there. This was supposed to be a rather upscale venue and to charge for internet was unexpected. The hotel was confusing to get around in and there was no real gourmet restaurant as we were led to believe. The food however was very good and the service pleasant. While I would recommend this for those who want to be near the beach, I would not pay extra for a room that overlooks the ocean because of the humidity factor.
