Feel bad because I should have done this sooner, but I have stayed in numerous W's now - Montreal, Boston, San Diego, South Beach and London UK - and this is by far the best. Best service, decor and comfort all around. The others where good too - but the Ft Lauderdale location has always stood out in my mind the times I have stayed there.
Happy to have an upcoming reservation booked.

Last week was my 4th stay at the W in Fort Lauderdale and I enjoy it every time i stay there. There is a wonderfully cheerful atmosphere, very accomodating staff, rooms that are very comfortable and great food at their restaurants. I highly recommend this property.

Excellent, friendly attentive staff at the desk and in the bar and restaurant...lively club and great steakhouse on site, also a Bliss spa. Directly across the street from the beach. The rooms are hip and spacious. Great views. This hotel provides all the little touches....you won't want to leave...

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor on the oceanfront side. See Jay at the concierge desk for all you dining and...

You must go to the bliss spa, and be sure that Stephanie and Derrick are there. Stephanie is the hostess with the mostess, she and Derrick will take great care of you. Everytime I visit the hotel, I have to make it to Bliss. It's alwats a pedicure, and the best in the business are there. My three favorite girls in the world are there: Tia, Mary Luz, and Angeline. Love them all, they are all top notch!

I was in town on a business trip and stayed at the W as that's where the majority of my co-workers were going to be. I have stayed at this property in other cities where the rooms and hotel has been sub-par. I was pleasantly surprised that this property exceeded all my expectations. Classy, modern and comfy - it was just what I needed for this trip. The decor was bright, the Wi-fi super speedy and restaurants bar weren't the run of the mill hotel fare - u actually enjoyed eating and drinking there.

Even their small clothes and jewelry store got my approval and I bought two items from there as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely put this on the top of the list for anyone coming to town.

Long days in meetings, it is great to come back to a hotel with the best hospitality and service! We loved to gather outside by the fire pit and relax and unwind our day while the bartender remembered what each of us ordered. Front desk is always extremely helpful and so polite. We all love to enjoy our breakfast in the morning outside with the view of the beach. Service at Steak 954 is the best! thanks for great service all around - excellent hotel!

We enjoyed the hotel and the staff so much, that we rebooked another stay here just 4 weeks after the first stay. Goodbye northeast snow and ice; hello Lauderdale sun and fun! Everyone in the hotel from the first greeting, to the front desk, to staff at the pool were a delight, and seemed to truly care if we had a great stay.

Room Tip: No need to have an oceanfront room, the views are good for all, but I would try to get on the South...
