Weekend getaway

Great hotel with great service. The room was spotless and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The only bad thing was that you had to pay $10 a day for parking. The parking lot was never full, in fact most times it wasn't even 3/4 full. I don't really see why you would have to pay that much to park 200 feet from the hotel. Regardless, the staff was very friendly and eager to show me on a map the best places to go at the beach.

If you're going to the beach, there's plenty of public parking on the side streets, it only costs $0.75 per hour.

Relaxing stay

rooms were clean & spacious. Amentities were nice. Check in & out was hassle free. You must have transportation & the hotel charges $10/day for parking. Not a wide variety of restaurants close by. If you don't mind staying out from the beach, it's a really nice place.

Absolutely Fabulous

The hotel staff was very friendly, accommodating and attentive. The atmosphere was great. It was very peaceful when we were in the hotel and it must have been soundproof. GREAT!!! Because we were there on a busy holiday weekend, you did not get the feel that the place was in overload. Even the guest seem to have friendly attitudes. I would definitely re-book at this hotel during my next visit to the area.

STILL WAITING

Overall good experience, a problem was presented to your front desk staff, and the issue was never taken care of. My bathroom sink drained very slowly, which I had an full sink of water for hours, and the water was shut off in the hotel for more than 2 hours.

superlative eperience in all ways

The Westin Fort Lauderdale afforded a most relaxing and quiet retreat from pressures of the day while on a business trip. This place ranks as one of the most luxurious hotels at a reasonable price per night that I have experienced. The staff present themselves as part of the visitor's staff - one individual who comes to mind is Carl at the Bellhop/Concierge area. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Fort Lauderdale - Miami area.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

For anyone concerned with where to fill the gas tank on the rental car before returning it to the airport, several gasoline stations are very close to the hotel and easily accessible. Additionally, getting to the the Fort Lauderdale Airport is easy and relatively quick to do.
