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).

Romantic Trip

We spent a lot of time on the beach and driving around the Fort Lauderdale, Miami area. We really enjoyed the cruise around Millionaire row it was a motivational cruise for us. I would rank this as one of the best vacations we've taken.

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!

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.

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!!

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

While the locals flock to the hotel bar and lounge, I found that a short cab ride away took you to the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale and that is where the EPIC adventure began. Check out the Living Room... unbelievable!!!
