It may not be the newest or hippest W hotel but it's well worth a visit. Service was flawless. Every staff member we encountered was professional and friendly. Stay in one of the ocean front suites located on an upper floor. The view from the large wrap around patio is fabulous. Breakfast at Steak 954 is pricey but worth it.

I have always heard nothing but good things about the W. I can attest that the rumors are true. Spent five nights at the W and loved my experience. The staff is as good as is gets, every last one of them treated my wife and I like family. The room was spotless, the pool was very nice and people...

We were staying at a nearby hotel and came here for drinks at their bar. We sat down at a table inside at the "living room" and watched 3 bartenders ignore us for 20 minutes. The place was empty. We were the only group in the bar. Horrid service. Horrid attitude. Won't be back and for sure won't ever stay...

The location was right on Ft. Lauderdale Beach. All we had to do is walk across the street and you were there.

This hotel is a well appointed hotel with very clean furnishing. This hotel was spotless. Kinda confusing a little because you have to remember which tower your room is in! Drinks at both bars in the hotel are expensive. $8 for a can beer! They do have a breakfast buffet for a small fee that is delicious.
