“Rest and Relaxation At YOUR SERVICE”
Reviewed 26 April 2010

What a beautiful place this is to stay. We stayed Ocean View which was a little pricey but worth every penny. Are view not only was of the Beautiful Ft Lauderdale Beach but of the Intracostal Waterway and you could see Miami from our room on the 16th Floor.

You dial Zero for any whim you may have and they answer "your wish is my command" and it is. They have numerous Acura's to give you a lift within a ten mile radius of the Hotel. This is mostly daytime though. They arrange everything for you. The Valet Service for the cars where phenomanenal and then it starts from there. You will not be disappointed with anything at the Hotel.

The Pool and Health Spa is 24 hrs Wet and Sweat. They have a bondfire at night at the pool, bar towels, cabanas. They have the Livingroom that you can lounge inside and out, the entrance from the pool area is a stairway through the pool. You have to experience it yourself. There is plenty to do or just do nothing but either way you won't regret your decision. They also have a full service Spa you can relax and get a massage or whatever you want. You can find quiet and tranquility or mix with the crowds at the bars or resturant. The food there is delious with 24 hour room service available.

Parking is available for an additional fee.

Our room was not ready upon check in, and the girl at front desk told us she did not know how long it would take to have the room ready, as they were very busy. We sat and waited in the lobby for over an hour to get our room. Then after the stay my credit card was charged for item taken from the munchie box which we never used. It took another couple of phone calls to the hotel to remove it from my account, and not even an apology from the hotel manager.

We had a great stay at the W. All the staff we encountered were warm welcoming and eager to please.
We had a room in the front tower with an amazing view of the ocean and intercoastal.
Read all the reviews before going and the bottom line is if you can afford to stay in a four star hotel then you will enjoy the experience. Prices and decor are midtown Manhattan, so if that is not your scene then stay elswhere. Bathrooms are as advertised not for a family vacation.

My Husband I went for our one year anniservary and were not impressed at all. Our room was very dirty, the glass going to the patio looked like it had not been cleaned in a month. There was a long hair in the bathtub that was neither of ours and when we brought it to the attention of management they sent the cleaning crew and it was still there when we got back! The valet are so unorganized and rude. Not helpful at all. Massage at the Bliss spa was average. The room service food was not good and cold by the time we got it and they were out of the drink I wanted. This is the W they are suppose to go above and beyound and they did not at all.

After reading many reviews, I was skeptical of staying here. Here's the deal... I've stayed at most of the W's in the U.S.... this is defiinitely one of the nicest. It's beautiful and airy, but you want to stay in the front tower. We had room 832 (Ocean View and unbelieavable)...perfect room. I found the service and staff to be wonderful. If you are a Starwood gold member, it'll be even better! Raul at the front desk and Kayla at the pool bar were my favorites. We ate breakfast & dinner at Steak 954.... definitely go! It's totally worth it... food is great...especially the dinner! Whiskey Blue was fun too! This is definitely the nicest hotel in Ft Lauderdale. The Ritz Carlton is nice too, but a little stuffier ... this is younger and hipper. This hotel is for couples or friends... families with younger children should stay at the Hilton next door or one of the Marriott's.

We booked the room through Amex Centurion. When checking in the front desk clerk was completely condescending to me. I was treated as though I didn't belong there and was very annoyed by the time I finally got to my room.

The lounge area is too loud and the service is dreadful. I sat for 20 minutes before a waitress finally asked if I needed anything. Several others had walked by but I must have been invisible or something.

The room was nothing special considering the price. The glass shower is obnoxious and useless.

I will never stay here again.
