superlative eperience in all ways

The Westin Fort Lauderdale afforded a most relaxing and quiet retreat from pressures of the day while on a business trip. This place ranks as one of the most luxurious hotels at a reasonable price per night that I have experienced. The staff present themselves as part of the visitor's staff - one individual who comes to mind is Carl at the Bellhop/Concierge area. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Fort Lauderdale - Miami area.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

For anyone concerned with where to fill the gas tank on the rental car before returning it to the airport, several gasoline stations are very close to the hotel and easily accessible. Additionally, getting to the the Fort Lauderdale Airport is easy and relatively quick to do.

Good for business or pleasure

The Westin Ft Lauderdale was both good for business and for pleasure. The location just off I-95 meant no beach traffic or congestion to deal with during my stay, but close enough to the beach to enjoy all of the shops and restaurants. The hotel was recently remodeled, so the room had new comfort bedding and large screen TV.

Very Comfortble

The Westin of Ft. Lauderdale was extremely comfortable. The minute you walk in the room you feel like its home awy from home. The King size bed is perfect, my husband and I over slept twice while staying at the Westin... He never over sleeps!

Very Comfortable and Great Location

We are actually having a wedding at this hotel in May. The hotel staff (room service/concierge/restaurant staff) are extremely friendly. They know us and greet us every time we come back to this hotel. There are some new employees a the front desk that are more concerned with getting their point across then listening to what their SPG guest have to say though. Hotel management should consider refreshing the new front desk staff customer service skills. We have stayed at this hotel many times throughout the last few years because of how close it is to Hwy 95. It is a great deal for the money. The food is wonderful! The pool area and the gym is very nice and of course the Westin heavenly bed and shower are wonderful. I will stay here again soon and I do suggest it to friends and family.

Because this hotel is right next to Hwy 95 everything is just an exit or two down. Downtown Ft. Lauderdale is very close and anything you want you can easily find!
