Quick Getway

Great views, although room was smaller than I expected other than that great service definitely plan to stay again due more to overall experience rather than based on room size.

Beautiful Hotel, great views and service

The W is a gorgeous, stylis,h and hip hotel with wonderful staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable and we were only there 1 night! The balcony was a great amenity as we had views of the ocean and the intercoastal. The Bliss Spa soaps and products were a great bonus!

great place to stay

W fort lauderdale is gorgeous. The pool is amazing and service at the pool is awesome. Great location to everything. Only problem was we were given the wrong keys to our room and almost walked in on someone in their room (good thing they had the security lock latched).

nice location

nice hotel, great room, clean and good view. The party scene downstairs was a little over the top for my style, but otherwise the hotel was great.

Always enjoy the W!

I am a frequent visitor to the W and am never disappointed. The only criticism I had this time was that the balcony and the balcony furniture were not as clean as they should have been. We had cigarette butts on the balcony and the cushions didn't look clean enough to lay on. Otherwise, I was/am a happy W customer. Their spa is great--had the best massage ever with Harvey and the pedicure is always worth traveling to FL for!

Overpriced W fort lauderdale

I have nothing good to say about the W fort lauderdale except the staff was very nice and it was in a good location. Other than that I felt it was a waste of money. My room was very small and they put me in a corner room that had a view of the parking garage. My room was moderately clean at best and the beds were hard as a rock. The food was descent but overpriced. I hate to be so negative about the W but I feel like for $435 a night i could've stayed elsewhere and had a much better experience.
