We book a room at this hotel for 3 nights. Our flight in to Fort Lauderdale was delayed 3 hours so we didn’t get to the hotel till after midnight. When checking in they had the room as a partial ocean view but we booked a full ocean view. When asked about that she had to talk to someone regarding this error. They stated they did not have a ocean view available so that’s what they were planning on giving us. I questioned it and said that we paid extra for this room. They decided to take money off the first night and would move our room the next day, they asked us to follow up in the morning. The next morning we went to the front desk to have our room changed but the room wasn’t ready, so they took my number to left me know when ready. They texted me after 2pm informing me it was ready and we moved. We had a nice room on floor 12 in the south tower with a nice ocean view. The hotel staff were very nice and the ladies at the pool were excellent. The only other grips I had were that the elevator across the cat wall to the beach was closed and not working, breakfast buffet at the restaurant in the hotel was 70 dollars for 2 people. Great location and we had a great time.

Hotel resort fee that they hit you with when you leave is ridiculous. $35 per day to use towels and beach chairs. There weren’t even any beach chairs available for us on the 4th of July yet I still got charged the fee. Everything should just be included in the price of the room which is already high.

Disappointed

Pros: Beautiful property, just expensive.
Cons: They should've given some sort of incentive for the missed time at the pool. i.e., happy hour for the duration of the event at the lobby bar.
Location: Great for relaxation.
They closed down their only pool in lieu of a private function that disturbed our time there. We were there for a short trip and thought we should've been given advance notice. Beach chairs cost $15 pp and aren't included in the hotel service charged to us by the hotel. Parking fees are outrageous. Beautiful property, just expensive.

Very average for a Westin

This hotel is in a great location. However, the extra charges such as the resort fee and paying for chairs on the beach are ridiculous. The morning breakfast buffet was outrageously expensive for an average selection of less than average food. We ended up eating breakfast at Starbucks the rest of the time. The bathroom design is odd and doesn't allow much privacy. One night we had an emergency evacuation which was very chaotic with no communication about what was happening. We stood out in the street with no hotel staff or security to tell us what was happening. We were there during spring break so as we stood on the street we encountered some drunk and aggressive men, late at night while standing there in our pajamas. My daughter was terrified. When we went back to our room we were evacuated again 20 minutes later. I've stayed in Westins before and this was by far the most disappointing

Resort fees 35.00 dollars for no reason and valet parking 40.00 no reason. Tub didnt drain properly feel like you bathing in a puddle.

Fabulous location on beach, great, friendly staff.

Pros: Very friendly staff. Quiet. Comfortable, ample-sized rooms. Elevators that actually came within seconds of button push!
Cons: The only complaint, valet parking at $40/day is robbery. At least offer self-parking (hotel has ample parking space easily accessible to guests).
Will return when beach side cafe is open (now under construction) and IF self-parking is offered.
