“Beautiful Property”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

I recently stayed here for a week and felt like a king. We are Platinum members and had suite upgrades we requested to use. This property upgraded us to a wonderful flat that was incredible unlike other properties where we barely felt like we had a different room. The ambiance and service is impeccable I highly recommend a stay at this W. Unfortunately I didn't get to experience much of the amenities but there are plenty and they looked great. My wife on the other hand used the spa, room service and other options with a big smile on her face.

Room Tip: If you want lots of space with a pretty good room go for a flat. If you want an awesome view with pr...

W Hotel provides a beautiful stay for travellers looking to chill out at beach side properties. Fort Lauderdale being a quieter city than its neighbour Miami provides amplified experience with calmness combined from W hotel's beachside location. The location of W hotel is its prime factor. Anybody looking for peace and tranquility, I recommend this hotel.

Everything that a beach should be, Fort Lauderdale beach is and staying in W hotel helps. You have a long beach just outside hotel to walk along where every morning large number of people jog. Evening gets colorful with beach side restaurants serving quality food.

Riverside Boat Cruise adds to fun which is pretty close to W hotel. Malls like Galleria and Coral Ridge mall are not too far and there are number of good restaurants in the close vicinity.

Staff at W hotel is polite and helpful. Rooms are decent size and view of the beach is awesome. Morning breakfast at Steak (Restaurant at W) is one of the most pleasurable activities.

Room Tip: Choose a beach view room at lower floors in advance as weekends are always full at W.

We had a great 4 day weekend at The W. Service and food were exceptional. Had a deep muscle massage at their spa which was the best I've ever had. Steak954 was outstanding - the Wagu beef (or whatever it's called) was worth the exorbitant price -- especially when followed up with 6 delicious margaritas and good company. The Valet and Bell crews were top notch and very friendly. Seemed like a sincerely nice staff of young men.

If you can complain about this place than you simply have to much money and should just cough up the down payment for your own home on the intercostal and leave these gems for those of us who appreciate them.

I'm a SPG Gold member who just stayed at the W Fort Lauderdale for 4 nights. What
an amazing stay -- the W Fort Lauderdale is my favorite resort anywhere! Everything is great -- from the stellar rooms to wonderful staff, the great pool area, the superb Steak 954 and Living Room and W Cafe. I could go on and on, but you get my point.

I'm already looking forward to my next trip to the W Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to everyone at the W for such a great week!

Room Tip: south facing rooms get great daytime sunlight

I was here overnight for a business trip. It'd been a long time but things hadn't changed. The staff are courteous and friendly. They immediately recognize Platinum status and upgraded to a very nice room. Very attentive to needs and suggest ways to make the stay better.
I didn't stay long enough to sample the restaurant, spa or pool. In the past the pool deck was the weak link. My stay was so good I'm going back for pleasure in 2 weeks and will check out the other areas.

Wow, where do we start! We have just stayed at the W hotel for 5 days before we go on a cruise and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are amazing with nothing too much trouble.

We booked a corner suite Room 2026 and it was fantastic, the balcony was large and all the rooms facilities of a high standard.

We arrived late from our London flight so our first experience was morning coffee, that is where we met the lovely morning food manager Jorge Ramos, he was the stand out member of staff who ensured that nothing was too much trouble, you are a credit to this hotel Jorge.

We had breakfast every morning in Steak 954, the food was fantastic, every day we had the fruit platter and both had 2 eggs over easy with a variety of additional items, the cappuccino was perfectly made and the orange juice freshly squeezed. The service from the lovely Christa was also fantastic, what a nice friendly and happy lady, nothing was too much trouble.

We also dined 3 nights in steak 954 which has to be one of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, the food was excellent, especially the crab cakes, fillet steaks and the free range chicken with a jus reduction, I can also highly recommend the creamed spinach which for spinach fans was the best I have ever tasted, well played chefs!!

From every aspect the service was great, from Jorge at breakfast, to Rodrigo who helped us out a few times, to the valets (especially the lady who opened the doors with a friendly smile), and to Andrew the Southampton fan on reception! We loved the Adam Lalana and Rikki Lambert conversations. Ps thank you for the red and white gift! Finally to our lovely room maid from Jamiaca Angela, the room was always immaculate, thank you.

So the W team, we will recommend you to all our friends and family, if others receive the same service we did then you will be full all the time. We very much look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The corner suites are amazing, we had room 2026.

Reviewed 13 November 2013

it was a long taxi drive from the airport but the location is extraordinary. right across from the beautiful beach. porte cochere was hidden and covered and looked high end. however there was no one available to help with our luggage so we carried it ourselves (there must have been a strike or ? as it was evident that on this particular Sunday night the hotel was not sufficiently staffed). elevator ride up to reception - check in was easy and non-eventful. desk agent gave us a Starwood upgrade...our upgrade was to a "fabulous" corner suite that was ocean front (even though the desk agent thought it was ocean view). the room was great! spacious and contemporary with a side balcony and a front balcony that faced the ocean - beautiful! the two somewhat minor problems with the room were the sliding doors to the balconies (difficult to slide open and to close) and the bathroom. as it was nine pm when we arrived we were too tired to ask for another room. the desk agent had given us a handicap bathroom but neglected to inform us of this at check-in. big faux pas! I guess that they hope you would not notice??? we went to the lobby to get food and drink and the bar area had a few patrons. I asked for two different drinks and the young bartender had to look them up on the computer. we finally ordered something simple with a snack and it was delivered quickly and the drinks were good. the swimming pool and lounge areas are outstanding. I would recommend this property for persons in their twenties. again, a beautiful property but I most likely will stay somewhere else on our next ft. Lauderdale trip.

Room Tip: although the rack rate is pricey - you must get an ocean front room!
