“Great Location, Pool & Bar!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Amazing pool with a great view of the ocean! Super easy access to the beach. Yummy on site restaurants and bars with the best mojitos! A few negatives..... The pool waitresses/bartenders are not the fastest or friendliest around. The four days we stayed only 1 out of the 4 waitresses we had at the pool was friendly, checked on us regularly and actual smiled. Not much I can say about the other three. The pool is the place to be at The W which means it's crowded and if you want a lounge chair you must "mark your territory" early in the morning. The hotel staff was always friendly and very helpful.

Stayed March 2014, travelled on business

This hotel provides a 5 Star experience in every way, The staff are all very friendly, the decor of the entire facility is amazing, and we had a blast at the Wet East pool bar(which overlooks the Atlantic from the 5th floor). I must also give credit to Micheal who checked us in. He went above and beyond to make sure we got a room we really liked and that totally made this visit what it was.... Awesome!

Thats right its a great hotel right on the beach. Check in was interesting as Bionca at the front desk was amazing as she tried to check us in and a random elderly non guest came to the desk and proceeded to do a Rain Man inpersonation. She handled it well and treated us like royalty. The room ws great, clean, and the view amazing!. Parking valet were super friendly and loved the entire stay!

Extraordinary location (15 mins from the airport). Two pools, never too crowdy. The suites are very nice with a magnificient view on the ocean. The food is great and the Steakhouse is one of the best in Florida.

I will go back for sure as soon as I can.

Room Tip: Go for a suite, they are very nice, espacially in the south tower.

Great place in front of a beautiful sea. W exceed my expectation, there I had many good moments with my family. The staff are very attentive, the hotel is charming and the room is cozy. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the city. And have more, just very close to sawgrass outlet.

I’m so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your recent stay with us! It sounds like you had a chance to explore all that Fort Lauderdale has to offer and made it out the mall (which is quite a spectacle in itself), which is great! We hope to welcome you back again soon.

W had drove in Rain storms for 4 1/2 hours to arrive . The Hotel was busy and very modern.
The front desk clerk said our room was still being cleaned, I explained we were coming to a party and were already late, we needed a room to prepare and get ready. He said wait one minute. He came back and gave us a suite at know extra charge. The view was incredible and I felt like a celebrity. Pretty cool place and that night we had room service and that was even swank and cool.

Room Tip: the view seem to be good at all angles

decided to stay here last year for the boat show after the HORRIBLE experience the year before at the B. WOW we could not have been more pleased. From the courteous doormen to the white stuffed gators on the bed(3 came home with me!) this hotel lived up to the W standards. It was our first stay at the Ft Lauderdale location but we have been to several. The restaurant downstairs was visited daily for breakfast and we couldn't believe how reasonable it was for a hotel restaurant and especially for this level of hotel! The only odd thing was the showers. They weren't very user friendly. None the less the day I got the email reminding me of the boat show this year I didn't hesitate to book this hotel again! We can't wait.

Room Tip: I am pretty sure every room has a view!

Thank you for joining us over Boat Show – it’s such an exciting time in the city and we’re glad you were a part of it. I’m glad you were pleased with your stay and were able to take home a few of signature gators – they’re such good travel companions (and they don’t bite!). We look forward to your next visit.

All the best,
