Few hotels encapsulate the laidback luxury of Fort Lauderdale quite as well as The Westin Beach Resort and Spa. Perched right on the waterfront, with a 6,335-foot sundeck crowning the hotel's brilliant blue high-rise, guests will take in the Atlantic Ocean in all of its boundless glory. Sink into a daydream with a neck massage at the on-site Heavenly Spa, test the skills of local mixologists with a cocktail or two at the Waves Bar and Grill, or sit down to a prime steak at American Vintage restaurant.
Location
A trip around Fort Lauderdale doesn't demand much planning from the Westin Beach Resort; a guest needs only to step outside, and they will be within walking distance of the glitzy SunCruz Casino (the town's cruise port), Port Everglades, and a private skywalk to the striking white shoreline. A few blocks west lays the waterways and canals that have earned the city its nickname 'Venice of America'. The neighborhood is also a fashionista's paradise, with branded vintage rags and 'haute couture' to discover on nearby Las Olas Boulevard.

Everything you could ask for.

This hotel was a great value to sum it up. One memorable highlight though was the sushi, the best I have ever had. I would go back again just for that.

Perfect stay

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Fort Lauderdale and stayed at the westin. We had an amazing time and everyone at the hotel were so helpful and kind. The location was perfect as well. Being right across from the beach and down the street from a ton of shops and great places to eat was too convenient. We had a great time.

Everything was great.

Couldnt get out of the Heavenly bed. I was almost late for checkout because of it. The heavenly bathroom was underwhelming but still great. Pool was nice and the overpass to the beach was useful during busy road hours

Nearly perfect

Great location for enjoying the prime Florida beach. Shula's On the Beach restaurant always a great meal. Staff on top of their game. Amenities ranked 4 star. Only reason is the TV screen size. They look 36" and I'd prefer at least 42" like most hotels of this caliber. Great stay!

Shula's on The Beach. Seafood is always on your mind when on the ocean but don't overlook the excellent steak! Surf & Turf was great.

Westin on the beach

Great location, on the beach and close to everything. A couple of improvements would be free parking for guests ($32/day)and not charging for a beach umbrella ($20/day). That seems to be penny pinching on their part.

Don't Stay

There's no balcony. Average hotel for a high price. Staff acts like you are a burden and restaurant doesn't listen so orders end up wrong. Not staying here again. Plenty of better places to stay in the area.
