Right across the street from the beach
The Westin Beach Resort & Spa is part of Fort Lauderdale's main strip of beach hotels, along A1A highway. Most importantly, it is right across the street from the beach.
Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, the Westin Beach Resort & Spa has beautiful views all around and is close to many beachside hotels and restaurants. The Fort Lauderdale Beach is right across the street and Bonnet Gardens, home to beautiful flora and fauna, as well as a museum, is just blocks away.
Right across from the beach, the Westin's strong suit is its wealth of amenities: a kids club, a Starbucks, an outdoor event space, and a well-known steakhouse, for starters. At the center of it all is a huge conference center with two ballrooms, the hotel's pride that was opened in late 2010 (which means the hotel is more focused on business travel as compared to its leisure-oriented sister down the road, Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel). The hotel re-opened in early 2010 after a major renovation that left it with a clean, modern design full of beachy accents.
