“Coolest hotel experience”
Reviewed 8 March 2010

This hotel has it all. It's trendy but also comfortable. It is designed beautifully, although be advised that there isn't much light in thus hotel after the sun goes down. Rooms bathrooms hallways all have mood lighting. Shower is exquisite. Steak 954 is cool and delicious. The pool is a real scene but also relaxing. The clientelle and staff are beautiful but without attitude. I'd highly recommend this hotel for singles, young couples, small groups of under 40 somethings. I would note however that ft lauderdale itself is no south beach. It's not nearly as glamarous but the beach is nice enough. Restaurant options nearby are limited. Recommend a car. Casablanca cafe is good and a couple blocks away if you're looking for something close by outside the hotel.

The service atmosphere and food were excpetional But honestly the staff takes it to the next level. From check in to the Bliss Spa (ask for Jordan) it was just a fantastic experience. The steak restaurant is one of the best in FLL. I would only caution you ladies who are going on a first trip with your new beau...there are no walls between the shower and bed and its just frosted glass between the toilet and the room...oh la la

I just stayed at the W and was in a Flat. The room was amazingly modern and exceeded all of my expectations. Everything from the stainless appliances, to the LCD's in every room and the whirlpool tub in the master bedroom; what a stay. It was simply incredible.

Had a fantastic time at the W Lauderdale. Loved the pool at tower II, less busy but with great sun and music. I stayed in a suite with direct balcony ocean view as a platinum guest. One of the best rooms at a W I have ever experienced.
Make sure to try Steak 954 for lunch, the burger is awesome and so is the view of the beach.
Many thanks to the W Lauderdale for such a nice time, and helping me forget all the DC snow...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in week of Feb 2010. The hotel is nice enough, but we could not give it high praise/marks. We never could quite relax there, even though we had an ocean view room at the front of tower 1 overlooking the pool area and beach (warm sun on the balcony every morning).
Whatever rate you pay, it only gets you the room...............everything is extra and you wait on pins and needles for them to "grant your wish" with the associated price. No free wifi(complimentary downstairs on 4th), no coffee in your room(complimentary downstairs on 4th floor), $4 for a banana......I could go on. They need to give people an honest package which you can pay, then relax and enjoy your vacation................not wait around for the next surprise to be dropped!!!!!
The hotel is a one visit, been there done that, now I can find a relaxing 5 star and actually distress on my vacation kind of experience .................the place is too much like living in a night club where you have to order everything.........listen to preparty/warm-up music from your neighbors every night............I go on vacation to relax, clear my mind and get back to making money refreshed...........................I don't go on vacation to think constantly.

THE GLASS SHOWER WALLS NOW HAVE LOUVERED DOORS... YOU CAN HAVE PRIVACY WHEN YOU SHOWER! :)
I stayed at the W last week with a girlfriend and we loved it! The view of the beach is lovely. The service is excellent. The location is great for dining out, shopping, getting to the port/conference center, or walking on the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet and tranquil. Overall it was a very pleasant hotel experience. There was a razor left from a previous guest in our bathroom which must have been overlooked by the maids. However, my girlfriend and I just thought it belonged to the other one and left it there our entire 4 day stay! The Bliss bath/beauty products were great! The $30 forced valet parking was a bummer, but I got a great rate through Priceline so I can't complain too much!
