“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

The rooms were top rate and only exceeded by the service. We travel frequently and the service at this hotel cannot be topped. Additionally, the food at the hotel, whether by the pool or Steak 954 is terrific. If you're going to South Florida, there is no better option when it comes to accommodations.

The hotel staff is very friendly and they do their best to make you feel very welcome.WE would have preferred a higher floor than the 9th ,but the hotel was very full when we arrived.The fitness center was excellent with the latest equipment.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor corner room.

Went to Fort Lauderdale for quick visit and had a perfect stay at the W Hotel. From the first interaction with valet staff to check-out everything was perfect. I felt very Welcomed the minute I drove up to the W Hotel Fort Lauderdale. Thank you to Kayvon and all the valet drivers for great, kind service. Upon check-in greeted by Ryan (W Insider), who advised me of all the Wonderful W Hotel facilities and had a variety of dining suggestions. This information was greatly appreciated. A Thank You to W Insider Ryan for his gracious Welcome along with W Hotel and area knowledge. I, being a travel professional, feel very well educated and informed about the W Hotel product. It was so great to experience the W Hotel and see the great "what can we do for you?" from the hotel staff. I would recommend the W Hotel Fort Lauderdale to all my clients traveling to the area.

My family and I just checked out of the W & our entire experience was wonderful! Jarett Loperfito in the wheels dept assisted us during check-in & check-out and provided excellent service! We travel to Ft. Lauderdale at least twice a year & the W always provides us with a 5 star experience!!!

We stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom apartment, and overall had a fantastic stay. The staff were exceptional, and in general the facilities were great. Our apartment felt very comfortable. I even cooked two meals as we felt so 'at home' that we just wanted to enjoy the surroundings. Unlike other hotel apartments we have stayed in. If I am giving any areas that could be improved, it would be the following. The rooms are great in design, but some elements are weak in terms of practicality and quality of finish. Rather than W, it felt a little IKEA at times. Our apartment was severely lacking in closet space, especially for hanging. The closet doors and the sliding division doors did not run or close properly. The sink in the bathroom had no plug and no mirror adjacent, making shaving impossible without messing up the surfaces. Finally, the valet parking at $32 a day seems steep. Other options? There seem only to be 'tow away' zones next to the hotel, unless you want to take the risk a few blocks away. We asked at the Shell Hotel opposite and paid $10 a night! Ask if they have space. Lastly, the breakfast service (continental) at the bar adjacent to reception was often very poorly resourced. The staff did there very best, and with a smile, but one person serving, and making coffee for a hotel of this size, was woefully inadequate. Overall though, we loved our stay, and would return in a heartbeat!

Location of hotel could not be better ocean view from our balcony rooms were spacious but privacy in bathroom was difficult as our room had no privacy glass from bathroom to bedroom so to put it plain and simple if you were having a shower no privacy curtain, The gym had plenty of equipment in it and was adjacent to the roof top pool which was first class. A pool bar with complimentary fruit and food available . Hotels in this location are very pricey and this hotel was exception.
