Our stay at the W Fort Lauderdale was very nice. So, don't blow the review's title out of proportion. If you are considering the W Fort Lauderdale, it is just important to consider what you are looking for in a hotel. If you are looking for trendy, this is a good choice, but probably only if you can get a good rate. If you like 5 star luxury, you will find better choices in the area.
The service that we experienced during our stay was always friendly and helpful. The front desk staff worked with us at check in to make sure that all of our special requests were accomodated. The pool staff was also great. Just make sure that you get out there early if you want a place to sit on the weekends because both pools get preyy full. The valet service ($31.80 per night) was very efficient even on the heavy traffic periods.
The room was clean, well appointed, and of average dimensions. The bed was reasonably comfortable. Unfortunately, the faucet in our shower was not functioning properly, but this was only a minor nuisance. You will find everything that you might expect in a hotel of this caliber: safe, iron, robes, hair dryer, nice toiletries, etc.
That said there were also a few things that might make you consider staying someplace else in Fort Lauderdale. On Friday and Saturday night, the hotel is loud. We were on the 15th floor, and the noise from below was enough to keep me awake at 2am. The all-glass bathrooms might be a bit much for more bashfull travellers. Finally, the $30 valet-only parking is a little steep.
There are so many great lodging choices in Fort Laurderdale, and that is the reason that I would pass on the W if I had to do it all over again.
