“Perfect for the Weekend Getaway.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

This hotel was perfect and just what I needed for a quick weekend getaway. I was looking to get away for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday and I was looking for something that I could get to near the beach. I had always wanted to try a W hotel so I figured why not take a chance and give this one a try. I am very glad I did.

The experience started several days before check-in with an email from the W Insider asking if there was anything I needed. I explained that I was celebrating my birthday and my friend and I were coming down for a nice weekend away. Upon arrival to the W, I was welcomed with a major room upgrade and even noticed a nice welcome gift in the room with a small birthday cake and beer to enjoy. This was just the start to a good weekend.

The room itself that we ended up in was a Mega Ocean View room. Well worth it in my opinion. The room is very spacious and offered great views of the ocean from both the sitting area and the bathroom. Being an SPG member, we were placed on a higher floor which was nice to be away from the noises below. Another nice option I like is the Make a Green Choice option to have a credit for your room or extra points for each night you skip having the room serviced. It really was nice to have the option and not waste.

The hotel itself is really fun and hip. Reminds me a lot of being in a high end club which is fun. The bars offer a good mix of beverages and are priced on par with what I expected for a hotel at this level. Where the hotel lacks in some respect is the availability of breakfast. Unless you want a full sit down meal, the options are very limited.

The pool here is the other place we spent time and it is fun. Being a weekend in the summer in Florida, it was packed but the pool staff found us a spot. It's fun to walk up to the pool as the stairs come up through the pool itself. Wait staff are attentive with drink orders and drinks came pretty quick. Note that pool can be very packed with children in the morning. We found that by afternoon it was mostly adults which was nice.

All staff we encountered were very attentive and helpful so no issues there. Overall, this was the perfect weekend away and I will definitely find a way to come back.

Room Tip: Higher floors seem to have less noise.

I was booking a Ft. Lauderdale weekend and had a hard time picking the perfect hotel that had a great pool and beach access. Bit the bullet and booked the W although there were other less expensive choices, but this was the PERFECT hotel. The rooms are nice and I requested a balcony which I would suggest. The pool was absolutely wonderful and on the weekends they have a DJ on staff that plays fun pool songs to set the mood. The beach is easily accessible and the hotel provides chairs and towels. The service at the pool was just OK but the food/bev selection was great. I will always stay at this hotel going forward when I visit! Loved it!!! The perfect fun vacation vibe!

Room Tip: Request a balcony!

I recently spend 5 nights at the W Fort Lauderdale and could not be more impressed with the staff and the amenities. Brian with the Insider was particularly helpful and insightful for "things to do and places to go". Thanks, Brian. As well, all staff members including bartenders, wait staff, housekeeping, concierge, poolside, and parking were well trained and attentive to our needs. Kudos to all and I recommend to all travelers to consider the W when visiting Fort Lauderdale.

Room Tip: I like the south side for quietness and dual ocean/city view.

We thought their website video promo looked cool and thought we'd give it a shot. We arrived and were first blown away by their location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We checked into our room and loved how chic it was. The bed was very comfortable and the room was pristine. The steakhouse in the hotel had the best steak i'd ever eaten (even though it was $49 for just the meat). There were 2 pools, a great DJ and music selection, a younger (25-35) clientele, and the weather just made it that much better. The only real downside was the price. It is an upscale hotel so you will pay more for everything. I wouldn't recommend it for a family of 4 unless you have money to burn.

Room Tip: I don't know about any other room but become a SPG member and they'll upgrade you to the SPG...

This is a fantastic spot to really disconnect and get away from the everyday hustle and bustle. The rooms have a modern design, but are very comfortable. Overall this is a great property and probably one of the best in Fort Lauderdale.

I like W's and have stayed in many. This is less chic than some but the room was not as dark as in others. The suite was very nice, modern, spacious and with a great beach and bay view (20th floor). The pool was fun with a DJ and plenty of seats. The bar was fun although Whiskey Blue was dead at 11pm when I checked it out so just went back up the bar. Everybody was courteous and provided solid service. Walking distance to the restaurant area along the beach. Do recommend it. For 12000 points, good value.

The hotel is a wonderful place and staff was excellent. I switched hotels in Fort Lauderdale and it was a great trip. The first hotel was a time share hotel and I know why I would never buy a time share. The W has modern décor and the pool is not big but very nice. The staff at the pool were excellent and the service was the I ever had at a pool.
