My girlfriend and I decided on the W and were very happy we did. Typically staying at Marriott or Hilton properties, this was our first W experience. The modern contemporary architecture and decor was exactly what we were looking for to get away for a long weekend. The hotel lobby sits beneath, yes beneath the hotel pool. The hotel pool...

The W Fort Lauderdale is a wonderful property that boasts fabulous direct views of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. The staff is wonderful and every question asked was answered promptly and the front desk operators were very attentive to our needs. I would definitely stay again Can not wait to see all the renovations that will happen at the W.

I stay at the W Ft Lauderdale often for business and this is a great hotel for professionals and families alike. The design is functional and beautiful, as well as gym, restaurant, and pool amenities. It is also very close to superb restaurants - all walking distance.

Upgraded to free wifi since couldn't offer me upgraded room. Pool on east side was very crowded but has upbeat and fun vibe. West side pool much more quiet and serene and can get food and drinks served there too. Food good but very expensive.
