Where to start? My fiancee and I are from DC and got married this weekend in FLL, bringing out friends from all across the country and the world to stay for three nights. All our guest came to us and said the exact same thing- "This place is amazing!". For anyone planning a Wedding or just heading to Ft. Lauderdale to hang out, I highly recommend The W. From the very beginning in arranging the reservations a year prior, Steve Hoodack, Marissa Mackel, and Jill Doucette took such excellent care of room-blocking, giving me admin rights to me able to monitor when guest rooms were booked, making sure to respond to emails and phone calls in a timely fashion, expanding the amount of rooms when needed, and just one day before, ensuring that early check-ins were available for both of our families and friends. They even met us on the day of check-in to say hi, and later sent champagne to our rooms. Speaking of which- The Rooms are Elegant, sexy, clean without question, and the views- there isn't a bad view as you look out at either the Atlantic or the Intercoastal. The free Accura car service throughout the day is a HUGE plus for anyone wanting to be dropped off places (our guests used it). At night the lounge on the 4th floor turns into the most amazing place to get together. Two nights in a row our 75 guests got together down by the bar to mingle and enjoy the outside terrace overlooking the ocean. From check-in to checkout every single member of the Staff was professional, pleasant, prompt, courteous, and made our stay unbelievably memorable. Even the security that walk the halls occasionally make a point to stop and say "Good evening". My brother even got kicked out of the hotel for drunken misbehavior at 5AM and I am still writing an excellent review, and very much respected the way that security handled it.
I cannot recommend The W enough. I don't think for our wedding, any other hotel could have brought together 75 people and showed us as good a time, with such class and elegance as The W did. Don't forget the transparent pool which is such a novelty. Their "Wherever Whenever" service which basically will make anything happen for you (within legal bounds obviously) makes them stand apart. We have travelled all across the world, stayed in hundreds of hotels--- This was the best experience, hands down. Our actual wedding wasn't even at the hotel itself, and now that we are back in Washington, the staff is still writing and asking for pictures. Obviously a little more pricey than other places, but if you want an experience you will never forget, this is you place.
