HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This review covers the public areas and service of the W Hotel. Since we stayed in the condo/residence area we could not comment on the rooms. The hotel is very attractive. The ground floor seating area and access to the restaurant as well as the valet parking area is here. Valet parking is the only way to use the garage...

Awesome beach front views, got an upgraded room upon check in, amazing sunsets and was very impressed by the friendly service I'd received. Very cool, modern lobby and dining options with well kept rooms and hip decor.

Room spectacular! Comfortable and clean. Everyone that works there is kind and accommodating- really want your stay to be a great experience. Can't wait to go back!! Restaurant 954 Steak is delicious!! Had brunch in the morning and that was great too. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for - outstanding service!!!

We arrived to this hotel after a long morning of travel (6 of us, 4 kids, 2 were 9yrs old) we were exhausted and pleasantly surprised by the welcome we received as we stepped off the elevator. The front desk staff were amazing Dervin & the sweet woman whom checked us in (sadly we forget her name) were pleasant, efficient...

Rooms were surprisingly a nice size for a W hotel. Liked the size of the hotel itself as not as large and busy as some of the other beach hotels in the area. Pool space is very nice (see view below) and spa is small but works. Don't think I would choose it if I was traveling with small children....

Such a poor welcome at check-in. The main aim appeared to be how much can 'one' hold on your credit card for incidentals. $400 we were first asked for, we had paid in full for our room. Luckily my husband and I went to discuss this matter and my daughter then took over the situation and the girl was much...

I really wanted to like this hotel, I did not want to believe the other reviews. However, this hotel is an embarrassment to the W Hotel brand and Starwoods in general. I honestly don't even know where to start on this. 1) I'm an SPG Gold member. I don't expect to be treated special, but I do expect certain things...

For the $300+ a night, the accommodations are very disappointing.. the rooms are small, with no counter space available because they are all filled with pricey items on trays. No microwave. The bed has a duvet cover that irritatingly falls apart each night. Very few drawers and closet space and no microwave. The shower has a glass wall that faces...
