We booked our hotel stay at the W because we wanted to experience the "beach" bar they advertised, otherwise we would have stayed elsewhere. We got there and the room was super small and the interior of the room looked very "Ikea-ish"....cheap looking furniture, the smallest/worst hairdryer, and the bathroom had very little privacy in relation to the rest of the room. We were also dissapointed to hear that the "beach" bar area was closed for renovations...our main reason for choosing that hotel! We have stayed at other W Hotels and expected a lot more in terms of look, decor and overall ambience. HOWEVER, the service at the hotel was excellent!! The valet guys are so nice and fast and friendly, along with the welcome desk and bartenders/waiters downstairs. The concierge desk (and everyone actually) had great reccomedations for local restaurants and bars and they were spot on every time. They also provide an Acura car serive that will take you wherever you want to go within 5 miles for free, it was so convenient and a great amenity to provide the guests. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars is because of the wonderful service...we would even consider staing there again....but in a bigger room and when the beach bar is open.
