I've been lucky to maintain SPG Platinum status for the last few years, traveling to many, many different hotels (including a slew of W's) - and I can honestly say that I'm never happier than when I return to this stunning property. The location could not be better and the unbelievable staff (particularly Raul Lopez, Director of Guest Experience) work... More

The hotel is very well situated directly across from ocean. I had the pleasure of staying in a room with a large balcony and a wonderful view of the ocean. Waking up to a clear view of the sunrise over the ocean was a fantastic start to my day!

love the updates to the property. staff is very good. when hotel is completed with all the renovations should be nice. my only complaints are please do something about the parking situation. and get some sort of coffee maker in the room. one doesn't always want room service or go down into the lobby.

As always, the staff were great taking much pride in their work! Checking in was a pleasure, not a hassle as it can be at other hotels.

I had forgotten that the W was undergoing renovations to many of the residences, the main pool and the front end of the hotel. Not to worry. The rear pool was perfect. It sits on the west side of the property. Remember where the sun sets! The staff overly compensated for the otherwise challenges the ongoing renovation work presented. Kudos... More

Wait for the renovation to be complete. We missed a lot of the experience of a luxury hotel, because of an ongoing renovation. The pool was not available for example.

Stayed during one of the busiest weekends that Fort Lauderdale experiences (FLL Boat Show), so I anticipated a bit of chaos... but instead was greeted with amazing customer service, exceptional facilities and unmatched amenities.

Needs a couple of months to truly evaluate it. Construction makes it hard to image what it will be like in a few months. Besides that they still need some improvement.No coffeemaker in the room, they didn't bring new towels. One point that is really important the shower has full clear glass facing the bedroom.

Hotel nice, not great. Lots off street noise. For two of us there was only 1 robe, not 2. No towel hangers or a place for toiletries. The shower is part of the living room with no divider. $5 for tea.

this hotel is a disaster at the moment and I'm surprised the W brand is OK with it. first of all, everything is under construction. the grounds are torn up and the jackhammering starts at 8:30am. so much for a peaceful getaway.
