Last week our trip to the W exceeded all of our expectations. Orit was the biggest help to us and gave us a beautiful upgrade we will never forget. The room was a absolutely beautiful. The shower was one of my favorite parts, it was as big as half of the bedroom! But nothing's compares to the balcony and the...

Just enjoying som days over Thanksgiving in Florida with friends and staying at the lovely W Fort Lauderdale. Sadly I had no clue about the major renovation that is going on here. The receptionist and the welcome I received at checkin and a room on a higher floor took away all skepticism about the ordeals disappeared immediately. The room is...

My fiancé and I traveled down from Pittsburgh for a 3 night stay and we had a great time! The customer service was 5 star. Even through construction, we had a great time. The hotel offered several different restaurants to dine at. All were delicious. We will be back. What a awesome experience.

My family were enroute home to NYC from an amazing trip Mexico and had planned to stop in Florida for a couple of days to visit family.

It is my first time at this hotel so I am not very sure how it looked then and how it will look after the renovation is complete but the lobby is cramp, small and uninviting. It could well be a temporary lobby, which they have at the moment but I wasn't informed. The hotel is clearly a construction site....

The hotel is very well situated directly across from ocean. I had the pleasure of staying in a room with a large balcony and a wonderful view of the ocean. Waking up to a clear view of the sunrise over the ocean was a fantastic start to my day!
