Despite the construction and the oceanside pool being closed, we really enjoyed our 2 night stay. Had a slightly larger room with a larger balcony, but sad to say no sun.....did have a partial ocean view! 5th floor pool was wonderful as was the staff. Appeared to b refurbished and was quite comfortable. Resort fee is a bit high, but...

When adding this review I was surprised to see the recent not so positive reviews, as our experience was quite the opposite! Although the lobby area is under construction (was told expected completion is later this month), the service we received from the time we arrived at the hotel until the time we checked was excellent! When entering and exiting...

W = WHOA :( !! That sums up our stay at the W Fort Lauderdale. Loyal fans of W around the world (150 + nights a year), but this place is a pass. Nearly every reason you want to stay here is under construction. Lobby closed, lounges closed, the main pool area "WET" closed... (the small pool that is open...

The hotel is really big and modern. This is a type of hotel for young people, there a pool parties on weekends. The area of Fortlauderdale is not as nice as Miami Beach. The prices are less expensive than Miami Beach, but I would pay more the next time, so I can be in a nicer area. I would recommend...

This was my second stay at W Fort Lauderdale. The first, back in 2013, was perfect and deserved 5 stars. Now, it was very, very poor!! The service was bad and the mood was strange, but the worst part was the room. It was VERY noisy, with loud sound coming from other rooms during the night. In the morning, the...
