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.

Horrible stay at the W Ft. Lauderdale

The room did not match the descriptoin on the website. Asked, and paid for, and ocean view room and stayed in one that faced directly towards the hotel next door. Very noisy... the airconditioning units and exhaust fans from the rooftop of the restaurant ran loud all night long. Overlooked the loading dock to the hotel - trucks backing in and out all early morning long. Not worth the price I paid at all. Was told there was nothing they could do about my room due to booking capacity. Could not request a late check out as well. No free wi-fi. Over priced!

The Next Big Thing In Florida

My last visit to Ft. Lauderdale was 2004 and it was a town full of retirees. Amazingly, the city has transformed from a dud to a city full of life and great people. My stay at the "W" was heavenly. The view of the ocean was superb, the 754 steakhouse/lounge was superb, the "Living Room" was superb, and the nearby shopping was superb. Great city!

Hip, Zen, Good Location

I had a great time at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful to everything I needed. The room was spacious and clean, very modern. The pool and the common spaces where fun. The beach was steps out the front door and there were places to eat in nearby. It also was not too spring break/college kid oriented, considering I went in March. I would have liked more room service food options, but hey. It did not seem like a hotel you would bring young kids to, although there were a few. It was mainly couples and groups of friends.

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.

Very upscal,not for kids. great location. and adult clubs onsite. Food at restaurants very high. Nice place ,just not for family and could have found a more relaxed atmospher for a better price.
