Seeking an UpScale Resort? LOOK ELSEWHERE! W=0

THIS NIGHTMARE WAS THE WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE! Do yourself a favor and book at another resort that actually knows how to treat its Patrons. The room you select will become a bait and switch to an 'upgrade' that is actually a much smaller room. The hotel was unclean and the staff unprofessional. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The W Fort Lauderdale is anything but hospitality.

Staffing inconsitent. Some are great and others had an attitude that they were doing you a favor. Also nothing is free so be prepared to pay for everything.

Not worth the money

We called ahead to have room next to each other...didn't happen. The room was not ready on arrival. We were supposed to be on the 21st floor, but the room was untenable so we ended up on the 15th floor. The room have heavy slider doors...out upstairs neighbors started opening and closing the doors each morning at 7:30am! The front desk person did not provide us with a property map or any details about the facility, nor was there any info in the room about the property or greater Ft Lauderdale area. There was no store on property...we were told to go next door to the Hilton! Also the room did not have a coffee maker and there were only three spoons, four forks and knives. The dishes and pots and pans seemed random. The water pressure in the shower was minimal. Not sure if some of the lack of service was do to Spring Break...I was a bit surprised how many students were staying at this hotel. Wish I could give this place a better review... we will not return.

Excellent

We came here for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and it was perfect. The staff were so courteous and we loved the facilities. We were gifted a complimentary bucket of imported beers in our room, which was a lovely treat. Although we're more wine drinkers and don't drink beer, we very much appreciated the gesture. Our friends came to join us for a few hours at the pool and for dinner at night. The hotel was very welcoming. We definitely recommend this property and will come back here to stay again...

Nice Modern Hotel

Pros: Location is convenient and staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is modern and clean. Nice pool.
Cons: It is not kids friendly. Everything is pretty much designed for adults.
Location: Beach is right across from the street. A lot of restaurants and stores nearby.
We had a great time at the Fort Lauderdale. The hotel has a private beach across the street. Everything is within a mile of walker distance so it is very convenient. However everything cost money, no free wifi. no complementary breakfast, parking is $35 per day.

Great beach location close to everything.

Pros: Location
Cons: Parking ($35 day) is steep.
Location: Beach, restaurants, marina, water taxi in walking distance, parks, etc.
A little bit of a "hipster" hotel but enjoyed the experience and the staff was very accommodative. We would stay at the hotel, again, on future trips.

Conflicted...

GREAT location, rooms, facilities and pool. And, they gave us a very late checkout to accommodate our evening flight home. However... Staff was either really, really nice - or cold as fish. Service at the pool was incredible one day but not so much the next. Housekeeping forgot to make up our room one morning. After calling them twice, they showed up early that evening but didn't leave us any towels - literally none! After two more calls, they finally dropped some off that night. Also, there was no wastebasket in the bedroom, which may sound like a minor thing but trash does build up. After asking for one, four times, we just gave up. We are not high maintenance people at all, and overall had a good, relaxing trip but we remain conflicted over our stay at the W Fort Lauderdale.

Not worth the money

I recently stayed at this property just for one night to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. The staff was the best part of our stay. Every one was very nice. The room was ok, nothing too special and I was dissapointed by how dirty it felt and looked. I don't think I would ever pay over $150 to stay at this hotel. The rooms need an upgrade or a deep cleaning. I guess I was expecting something a little better.
