What a horrible experience we just had. The W stands for Worst hotel. The W stands for Worthless staff, with the exception of 2 individuals. Upon trying to check in the music was so loud and obnoxious that you couldn't even hear the person behind the counter while trying to check in. I'm not talking good music, I'm talking about...

Stayed overnight prior to a cruise. Excellent location. Modern, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Furnishings modern and stylish. Clean and new. Very comfortable bed and bedding. High-quality bathroom amenities. Great view from beach to intracoastal waterway from generously sized balcony. The pool and terrace overlooking the beach were outstanding. (The only notable negative was the full-length plate glass window in shower,...

Booked this room through Hotwire for what looked like a great deal but upon further review the $25 per day resort fee and $37 per day to park moved the needle from a great deal to overpriced. This hotel is definitely geared toward singles and couples, not a bad thing, but challenging for families. No ice on floors and when...

Hello borotraveler55, Thank you for your feedback. Like the majority of luxury hotels on Fort Lauderdale Beach, valet parking and our resort fee is not included in the rate. However, before booking, we always recommend checking out the offers page on our website as we very frequently have fab deals with exclusive extras included. We do hope you will return...

The room has a perfect view. Lovely and no complaints. I wanted a tub but hotel was busy so no room change. We had a door that was stuck but they came within a couple of minutes and fixed. Very friendly staff everywhere. I would stay here again if we come to Fort Lauderdale.

Since the minute we checked in! Servers pay no attention. Both at steak 954 AND the pool bar. Room had to be moved, they put us next to the hvac units! Wow what a stinking view!. Not 1 seat around the pool and nothing but little kids and kids in diapers in the dirty little Pool! Still waiting for bartender...

This was my first time at a W hotel and in Fort Lauderdale. I really enjoyed this property. I loved the modern design and our suite was gorgeous. Its right across from the beach but we spent every day at the pool! Although the hotel design and facilities are great it is the staff that takes it over top. Raul...

Upon check-in to The W Hotel, we were told our room would be ready within the hour, which was completely inaccurate, we then waited for 2 hours. Upon entering our room, we discovered that the fridge and freezer did not work as well as the dishwasher. On top of that, the room was not up to the level which we...

The W is not the type of hotel I would normally choose - it's modern design and 5th-floor pool areas aren't things I look for in a resort property. However, the service here is unreal. It started with our check-in experience with Nich (Neesh) who was very personable and helpful both at the initial check-in, and each time we simply...

Cashed in an award night for a romantic night on the beach. The hotel entrance is currently under construction creating a congested drive in, and self parking isn't obvious so you have to pay the valet, or go back into the traffic jam to find it. But the valet was nice upon departure, rushing to getting us some bottles of...
