Posh hotel, service could be better

Amazing location on the beach, gorgeous amenities, staff was very nice but needs training - my room was not ready at 4pm, concierge couldn't operate the computer, manager was stressed out, the front desk was a little rude. Kudos to the cafe staff consistently excellent service and remembered my order from the day before! But what's up with the $30/day parking - seriously?? All in all, pricey but a good value thanks to the Orbitz discount.

The W Fort Lauderdale dissapoints

Hotel room was very beat up, especially for a hotel less than 2 years old. There are better, less expensive options like the Hilton and the Westin, which are both within a block or so of The W. I won't stay here again.

W FLL REVIEW 8/10

ME AND MY FIANCE STAYED AT THIS HOTEL PRIOR TO A CRUISE VACATION, THIS HOTEL IS EXCELLENT ALL AROUND. VERY RELAXING, YET EXCITING AT THE SAME TIME. VERY MODERN AND CLEAN. GOOD BREAKFAST...YAYYYYY TO THE TURKEY SAUSAGE! THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I COULD SAY IS THAT THEY ONLY HAD ONE RESTAURANT TO EAT WITH A MENU THAT DID NOT ENTICE US, BUT WAS NOT A BIG DEAL HAD AN EXCELLENT DINNER WITHING SHORT Walking distance.

Very well worth the price!!

The hotel it's self is beautiful! Our room was in the north tower and had partial ocean view. I have not one complaint about the hotel or staff! Very entertaning! On sat and sun they have pool parties w/ d.j! So much fun there is a lounge/ club @ night also very fun! Not too much to do in the surrounding area but i could have stood there the while time! There is a resturant in the hotel also, I have never had such great breakfast!! The staff went above and beyond for your every need! As we were waiting out front for a taxi they offered to go get us water! I will be visiting again!!

W Fort Lauderdale

The W Fort Lauderdale was a wonderful stay. Everyone was extremely accomodating and helpful. The rooms were gorgeous. My only complaint was the pool was kind of small and at night the lights were cut off. Had a wonderful time here, club in the hotel is very popular. Restaurant was pricey did not teat at hotel. Excellent location. The hotel to stay at while in Fort Lauderdale. Loved it and would return.

Fort Lauderdale

The service of this hotel still has to be improved for a hotel of this standard. It's 3 months new and I believe they are understaffed. There was a computer glitch that locked certain guests out of their rooms, the vallet service needs to be improved a lot, the call in services need to be improved as I called the front desk quite a few times and there was no answer. This Fort Lauderdale W even though it in a great location with great inhouse bars etc. still has a way to go before they meet the standards at the W at Dallas.

Couple days without the kids

Pool area was very crowded on weekends with a DJ playing music. Beach was across the street with beach towel service provided by the hotel. Food and drinks at the hotel were very pricey. Service at hotel was top notch. No place in hotel for breakfast foods. I think the W Cafe was not yet complete. We went next door to the Hilton for breakfast. Definitely take the water taxi to Las Olas. Seminole Hard Rock casino is a $40 cab ride.
