The cool corner suite was amazing. I called on the phone to reserve a room and the representative made sure I got the best room at the best rate. This suite had an amazing wrap around balcony with oceanfront and canal views. The Wet pool wait staff made sure you always had a drink in hand. Hillary is my favorite,...

When you don't want the hustle and bustle of Miami, the W at Ft. Lauderdale is the place to be in South Florida! Everything you'd expect from the W. While the rooms are awesome (all with a view of the beach), you don't go to Florida to stay in the room. The pool (they have two) is the place to...

Stayed here while in town on business. Great location right on the beachfront and great value. Walkable to several eating establishments. The staff went completely out of their way to make me feel welcome. The room was spacious and clean. No hesitation in recommending this property.

Really swanky hotel at the heart of all the action in Ft. lauderdale beach. Our stay at the W was just what we needed for a short getaway. The beds were heavenly, lots of action at the pool and the staff was wonderful!

We arrived at 1:30 pm yesterday (Thursday) and were told our room wasn't ready (check-in is at 4) but they would call us. We checked back at 3:20 and the room was ready, even though we didn't get a call. We arrived in the " Fantastic Suite" only to be disappointed. The room really was not clean (see photos) and...
