Review Summary

Photos and Review by


  • Amazing design and attention to detail
  • Popular nightlife destination, with multiple bars and lounges
  • Two pool decks
  • Right across from beach; beautiful ovean views from main pool and some rooms
  • Steak 954 restaurant and Bliss Spa on-site
  • Huge outdoor event space


  • Fee to use the internet
  • Hotel's huge size means service isn't very personal or attentive
  • Not all rooms face the ocean

Bottom Line

By far the sexiest of the grand dames lining Fort Lauderdale Beach, the stunning design and painstaking attention to detail here are enough to wow even the most jaded travelers; unique design elements are around every corner, like a clear staircase that takes you up through the pool. In addition, there are two pool decks, a happening scene at three bars, a steak restaurant, sleek rooms, and a Bliss Spa. However, the hotel's size means you can't count on personalized service.

Right across the street from the beach

The W Fort Lauderdale 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 W Fort Lauderdale has beautiful views all around and is close to many beachside hotels and restaurants. The Fort Lauderdale Beach is just across the street and Bonnet Gardens, home to beautiful flora and fauna, as well as a museum, is just blocks away.

  • Across the street from the beach
  • 10-minute walk to Bonnet Gardens
  • 3-minute drive to Las Olas Boulevard, a strip of restaurants, bars, and clubs
  • 6-minute drive to downtown Fort Lauderdale
  • 12-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 35-minute drive to Miami
  • 40-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • Hour-drive to Palm Beach
