W Hotels can be spotty. The one at the LA airport is truly garbage. The one in Westwood is terrific. The one in Tines Swuare is below par. The one in Ft Lauderdale is beautiful. The layout is inconvenient but the rooms are perfection.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 January 2017 via mobile

After a bad taste in my mouth at the Westin nearby I was blown away by the hospitality of Sandra at the front desk. She reminded me what old school traveling used to be like! Not only did she greet me with a big smile, but when they had upgraded me to a 2 bedroom residence suite (larger than my...

This is my 2nd time staying at "The W Fort Lauderdale" and I LOVED it. First there are a "few things" that you need to know. This hotel is very unique, hip, classy and from what I see...for the younger/GenX crowd. The first challenge is actually finding an entrance into the property, very difficult. There is still some construction going...

This review will be 2-fold. First - The Hotel itself is stunning. Architecture is amazing, and the floors, textures, and lighting are great. Confusing check-in though after dropping off car at valet - "Go down that hall, get on elevator, go to 4th floor for check-in". I've never heard of a Lobby being on the 4th floor. Alyssa at check-in...

We stayed at the W Ft. Lauderdale for one night, pre-cruise. The room we were originally assigned to was quite small and minimally furnished and had a poor view. Ultimately, we were able to upgrade to a wonderful and large suite with an amazing ocean front view and huge indoor and outdoor space. Kudos to management for taking care of...

We were an inconvenience to this hotel! Lack to rectify an issue with cement splattered ALL over our rental car after having no other parking option and NOW having to deal with getting the W Hotel and their 3rd party valet service to submit a claim was a painful experience and one that ruined our vacation. No offer to do...

Pubic hair in the tub. See through shower and bathroom. Horrible beds and linens. Moved next door to the Westin ft Lauderdale breach resort after waking up. They overcharged our cc, and do not believe them on using spg points! Once you give them your cc, you are done. Immediately charged our cc, even though we checked in with points....

The hotel is stunning when you arrive in the reception area or "living room" as they call it. Our room was a "spectacular ocean view room" and the view was spectacular, however the room needed some TLC. The bathroom design was humorous ... it had a large window between the bathroom and bedroom and no door - not ideal when...

We stayed there for a week and loved it. We had a beautiful room with a huge terrasse facing the ocean. Great interior design. The pool is nice but the lounge chairs are very close to each other. The service was not great but overall it's a very nice hotel but pricey.

Great location - slightly crowded lobbies and bar area - hard to get a drink. Loved the room and the view, and we were able to walk to great places to eat. Bed comfortable, Bathroom was unique and very cool, and the balcony was a bonus!
