This hotel is a very nice place to stay regardless of which room you are in. However, if you are able to book a room facing the ocean that has an extended balcony, grab it ! The extended balconies are located on the upper floors. It is absolutely wonderful to sit outside on your private deck and soak up the sun. Better yet, is sitting on the balcony at night watching the stars. The balcony comes with reclining deck chairs which are very comfortable. I could have slept outside on one of them.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean with an extended balcony that opens up to the sky are wonderful !

Jim V,

Thank you for your review! I’m so glad you were able to soak up the sun and stargaze from your balcony – sounds like a wonderful way to take in the scene. We hope your travels bring you back our way soon.

All the best,

My recent stay at this W has set a new standard to which I rate other hotels. Here’s why:

- The best staff ever! (banquet managers and front desk, to the dude behind the bar with the braces) – everyone was helpful, personable, attentive, friendly, etc.
- Cool hotel! I like that it’s dark with progressive décor, and the kind of music I like
- Bed! Holy comfortable. Slept better than at home
- Towels – not many people mention them, but they were nice for after showering. Not sandpaper like other hotel, yet absorbent.
- Location - perfect

In short, everything was great, but the highlight was the awesome people that work at the W Ft. Lauderdale – bravo.

Lastly, if you have won the lottery or you are a celebrity, stay in the eWOW suite on the 24th floor. Words can’t describe how breathtaking it is…

We had a birthday party at the hotel. Everything was handled beautifully and professionally. The guest rooms were awesome. The views are great. Exactly what I expect from the W hotel. Guests were greeted with gift bags. Staff was always helpful and courteous. It was pricey, but it was worth it.

I was responsible for hosting a Meeting for 250 participants at the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and our experience was sensational. The design of the beach front hotel with private Ocean view balconies as well as the friendly staff made this meeting the best ever. Our employees are now fully motivated to kick off the new year. Meeting rooms all had windows overlooking the beach, the food was delicious and Steve, our W Hotel Account person" was pro-active in ensuring that all our needs were met. I would strongly recommend this venue for anyone who wants to host a successful meeting that will motivate their participants.

The rooms next to the elevators are too noisy especially at night with the elevator machinary being so close to the sleeping area.
Overall, I had a great stay and found the staff very friendly and supportive.

Great location.
Beautiful property.
Rooms were nice. Beautiful views.
Blazing fast room service.
Staff was extremely courteous and service oriented.

We were planning on leaving later in the evening so I asked the front desk if we can extend it by another night. Since they had upgraded us to a suite and the suite was already booked for the next day, the manager suggested that we check out late (around 4) and check into a hospitality suite (which is usually only available for an hour) till later than night (10 PM) - all free of charge. It was a nice gesture on his part, especially since I was okay paying for another night and he could have charged us.

Room Tip: A lot of people recommend the full ocean view. It is great during the day but nothing to see at nigh...
