W Fort Lauderdale

Very nice experience, clean rooms, great location. Pool was VERY busy and loud. A little dirty around the pool area from daytime partiers. Restaurant was delicious, but a bit pricey. Hotel was also very large and busy. Night life was good but created a "club" vibe all over the hotel. If you're looking for relaxation, this is not the place.

Quick Getway

Great views, although room was smaller than I expected other than that great service definitely plan to stay again due more to overall experience rather than based on room size.

Beautiful Hotel, great views and service

The W is a gorgeous, stylis,h and hip hotel with wonderful staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable and we were only there 1 night! The balcony was a great amenity as we had views of the ocean and the intercoastal. The Bliss Spa soaps and products were a great bonus!

great place to stay

W fort lauderdale is gorgeous. The pool is amazing and service at the pool is awesome. Great location to everything. Only problem was we were given the wrong keys to our room and almost walked in on someone in their room (good thing they had the security lock latched).

nice hotel, great room, clean and good view. The party scene downstairs was a little over the top for my style, but otherwise the hotel was great.

Always enjoy the W!

I am a frequent visitor to the W and am never disappointed. The only criticism I had this time was that the balcony and the balcony furniture were not as clean as they should have been. We had cigarette butts on the balcony and the cushions didn't look clean enough to lay on. Otherwise, I was/am a happy W customer. Their spa is great--had the best massage ever with Harvey and the pedicure is always worth traveling to FL for!
