I spent 6 days and 5 nights at the W south Beach and was blown away from start to finish by every little detail. The people couldn't have been nicer - from check-in to cleaning crew to the restaurant and bar personnel. My room was still being cleaned when I arrived, so the front desk treated me to an arrival...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 February 2017

I absolutely loved my stay! While check-in was slow and there was a problem with billing, everything else was so good that those things didn't matter. The staff at the beach were excellent, though they could have used more. Now at WET there were plenty of staff and their service was excellent. It was a team effort for sure but...

Realistically this hotel is somewhere in the top 3 places to stay in Miami. Everything else is either outdated or skeevy. The crowd is great (not wild but not a bunch of retirees either) and just what you expect at a W. The grounds are really well kept and the rooms are pretty spacious. Views from the balcony are pretty...

One of our favorite properties in South Beach due to location and facility. However, the service level is one of the worst..... in the WORLD!!! They treat frequent travelers like we are a nuisance versus a guest. The front desk is poorly trained and have no clue what they are doing. Forget about getting a late check out, regardless of...

We traveled back to the W South Beach for a second time Easter weekend. We had reserved an ocean view suite and were excited about the visit. The trip immediately got off to a bad start when we were informed that our room was not ready and would not be ready until the afternoon of the following day. Therefore, we...

Although very expensive the rooms are frequently not "refreshed" in the evening, no soaps are replaced, a kid used the swimming pool as the bathroom and the hotel took half an hour to clean it. Last but not least somebody threw a glass from a balcony on people lying in the sun. They were lucky because somebody could have been...

Good rooms - great location - eating and drinking in hotel is completely and totally overpriced for the product and hotel type. Some staff a little to cocky and impatient when ordering and trying to understand costs and product. 50 dollars a night if you have hired a car for valet parking is extra and considering the car may cost...

I just came back from a 2-night stay at The W South Beach Hotel and did not enjoy the experience at all. Let me start by saying that I have traveled a lot, and stayed at so many 5 star hotels including Setai and The One in Miami beach. If those are 5 star I would give W 3.5 star...

I liked the W South Beach, don't get me wrong. Our room was clean and spacious and had a great view of the ocean. The staff is very accommodating as well. There are a few downsides- the whole hotel is dark... the lobby, the elevator, the hallways. Trying to be hip or save on electricity? The food is crazy overpriced...
