"Good value for the money"
Close to the beach and great restaurants. Staff generally very friendly and helpful-especially at the front desk and pool. Concierge service could be better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
Nice place right on the beach. Great rooms very clean and comfortable great staff. Only draw back is the almost $40.00 a night for valet parking and every time they bring your car the men are looking for a tip, for what car not there when I called for it and opening up my lady's door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach, very friendly staff"
Room was very quiet with a beautiful view of the ocean. Staff members were very friendly and accommodating. Easy walking to restaurants, bars, shops, etc. yet just far enough away from the Ft. Lauderdale party scene for peaceful walks on the beach. I highly recommend this hotel for a getaway!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach and in a great location... Need"
Good location, close to the beach, needs updating. Air conditioning did not work consistentlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wish we could have stayed longer"
My wife and I stayed there the day before our cruise. Great location..right on the beach...lots of restaurants and a CVS within a couple blocks. The room was in good condition and clean. We are planning to go back when we can spend a few days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun Beachside hotel"
Perfectly located on Beach. Clean with helpfu & l friendly staff. Good Rate . Minifrig, coffee maker, pool. II would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Watch out for Housekeeping"
Signed up for a new "Go Green" program at check-in that gives you points to rewards for declining housekeeping services. The housekeeper came anyways, after I declined services and took a gift bag with items I had purchased the evening prior. After waiting over an hour for security, I was told the housekeeper, who should not have been in the room anyway, […] had denied touching the bag. The security left the room, only to knock on the door 5 minutes later with the missing bag claiming to have found it right "on top of the housekeepers trash" located in a closet. Received NO apology from a very rude manager or the housekeeper, and no explanation of how their "go green" program had FAILED miserably. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old but not bad..."
The staff is great. Rooms small. The bedding is thick and very (too) heavy. Tough for FLA.... Steakhouse used to be better, but it's not terrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy and comfortable"
The staff was excellent. Rooms were clean. Sheila's was delicious.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room rate was rather high which was unavoidable. The room was nice and we had a partial view of the ocean which was pretty. The pool is way too small for the size of the facility and it was cloudy so I stayed at the beach during the day. The beach is beautiful but you only get 2 chairs per room; $12 for an extra chair and $20 for an umbrella. Those […] should be FREE to guests of the hotel. They charge for internet, that is not free and should be. Shula's is a nice restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this hotel!"
Love this hotel. It is close to the beach, the rooms are great, and the beds are amazing! My two complaints are that the pool should be bigger, and the beach staff should not take away lounge chairs at 4:45. Otherwise, I love this hotel and the staff is really nice!Genuine Expedia guest review
What a treat Arrived very early after overnight flight and we were able to get into our room Excellent location, nice staff.. Everything was great !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel by the beach"
Excellent hotel, right upon entering we were greeted with excellent services from the staff and check in was swift and easy. They have us a free upgrade and the room was excellent. Close to everything we needed especially for the music festival we were attending during that weekend so finding parking wasn't a hassle. They were cooperative when they […] overcharged me for valet and immediately dismissed the extra charge. The only downside was valet was slow and all over the place but it was really busy. Other than that definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Plus Shula's on the Beach is amazing! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very good hotel. The pool area isn't the greatest but everything else was very nice. The staff was prompt and helpful. The ocean views were amazing. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"overall experience was good but I would skip it"
I thought it was overpriced taking in consideration the "outdated" room condition, although staff was very helpful. Swimming pool area was overcrowded ....Genuine Expedia guest review

The mattresses were awful we did not sleep all night room 841Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only real downside was having to walk back and forth to the South Tower. Be sure to mention your Starwood Preferred status. Got a nice upgrade to an ocean view. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
nice friendly people, great view! nice view from pool over ocean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice beachfront hotel"
Awesome beachfront hotel, very pleasant, staff and relaxing environment. I would definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Ocean Front Room"
From the moment my daughter and I entered the lobby we were greeted with a big smile. The gentleman at the front desk was very accommodating. We got there a few hours before check in so they held our luggage while we grabbed a bite to eat. On our way back the told us our room was ready and we could go in earlier, which was great for us because it was […] still early enough that we could change and go out to the beach. The food at the bar by the pool was delicious. Dinner at their restaurant, Shulas, was amazing. Oh, and did I mention, how fabulous the staff was and how great our oceanfront room was? I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends. My only regret was not having the time to get a massage at the spa. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a beautiful hotel conveniently located on the beach. We enjoyed walking along the beach, shops, and restaurants. It's only a few miles from the cruise port and a few miles from the airport. Very nice!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for relaxing beach vacation"
Room was clean, no bathtub but shower was great (with one of those overhead showers and a handheld shower head). Bed was very comfortable too. Pool was nice and the convenient poolside bar service was great (could order food too!) Didn't really venture into Fort Lauderdale or other parts of Florida but just enjoyed the beach. Lots of restaurants and […] drinking places a short walk away. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
While dated (in general the rooms and halls could use some "modernizing", the views and proximity to the beach and strip were phenomenal! I didn't care for the seafoam green walls and wished the balcony was usable. We were in the South tower so getting to the pool was a little strange. Also, we and others had to figure out that "M" is floor 3... why […] not label the elevator button 3?? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great, affordable beach vacation"
We had a great time at the Westin in Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful. You have a pool and close access to the beach. The Westin staff is overall very attentive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A full service Hotel"
Very tentative and friendly staff. The sushi area had somewhat slow service , but friendly. The Hotel feels a bit old, but have had a makeover. Its a large (for a beachfront) location. Pricy concidered for value for money. Small bathrooms for US standards. Expensive internet acsess. Expensive valet only parking. Location is good with beach and resturants […] nearby. All in all a fairly good Hotel.. But not great... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location nice pool and great beach access"
Pros: location great, rooms very clean, located close to some really great restaurants (s3, Casablanca) clean beach, pool staff removes chair squatters by pool if not used in more than 30 minutes Cons: louvred doors on bathroom (no privacy) and no vent fan in bathroom, pay by the day wifi (slow system)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with a view of the beach."
We arrived early in a Monday, and were upgraded to an ocean view room and were able to go right up. Loved the "Green" aspect if the hotel, and they even rewarded us for taking part. No complaints at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location and excellent helpful staff"
enjoyed the experience-would recommend it to a friend or stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel with a great location."
Beautiful hotel and great location to beach and restaurants/bars. Staff was great! Will definitely stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to beach"
We rented a car in our package, and found out after ,that they charged for over night parking. 28.00 a night. That was outragiouse. I spoke to valet parking manager and they gave a lessor price. I would not have stayed there if I knew. We do a lot of traveling with a carGenuine Expedia guest review

A great stay from Friday morning to Monday night. Able to walk to restaurants and bars with the beach right in front. Great hotel and staff.

"Within walking distance of many restaurants/shops."
The Westin was in a very good location and the skywalk to the beach was a wonderful amenity. Pool guys were very friendly and always willing to help with towels, chairs, etc. Food was good. Beds were like sleeping on a cloud - very comfortable. I was not impressed with check-in and check-out staff. Not very friendly and hard to understand - talked too […] fast and with a heavy accent. I arrived early by plane 11:30 am and was not able to get into a room till 2:30 pm - they said they would get me in early and call me, but I had to go back to the front desk and inquire myself. It was hard to find a luggage attendant also. The hotel itself was very nice and in a good location. I would consider going back on my next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Westin was very accommodating for my group. They upgraded us to an ocean view room after the original room only had a king bed rather than two doubles.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach and very comfortable"
Despite all the elevator problems the hotel was extremely comfortable and accessible. The Starbucks downstairs was a part of our morning routine and the staff were all very polite and friendly. I wanted to take the bed home with me because it was so comfortable!Genuine Expedia guest review
"beautiful resort, close to beach"
excellent and comfortable accommodations.. food/bar service less than perfect, staff seemed confused and did not demonstrate service standards which I think a westin should have.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel with all the service and amenities expected from a Westin. Starbucks on the premises! Within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping. Pool was small but we were at the beach anyway so we didn't care.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Best Vacation"
The service was excellent and the pool side Restaurant was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
Took $20 cab from airport to hotel. No need for car after that. Great places for eating, bars, etc, all within walking distance. Beach across street from hotel. Need to get to pool early to reserve chairs. Stayed here several times and will most likely come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Girlfriend's Getaway"
Loved the Westin beach Resort. It was a great location and very nicely maintained. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Nice pool area and beach front also. Since there were 6 of us we needed a larger car to get around. The hotel had some great services available right there. We especially loved having Nixon, Jackson and Frank take us everywhere. […] They also offered great suggestions for restaurants and other points of interest. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Awesome time just did not like have to pay for internet, but overall it was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach, shopping and restaurants."
Nice hotel. I usually like staying at Westins. This one had a bathroom with shutter type doors and a window to the bedroom area. No privacy and the light shines through the shutters which wasn't so great if you had to get up in the middle of the night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"WE loved our location and view -"
Family short trip for a few days in the warmth and sun. It was wonderful. Staff was extremely friendly. Hotel was well cared for and it showed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"GREAT PLACE ON THE BEACH"
ALWAYS GREAT TIME ,AND SERVICE AT THE POOL IS FAST AND FREINDLY. LOVE THE WALKWAY TO TH E BEACHGenuine Expedia guest review
"Mom and daughter getaway!"
We really enjoyed staying at the Westin on the beach. We had an ocean front room and the view was amazing. I was a little worried with the street between us and the beach, but literally you feel right on the beach. Also, they put us on the 11th floor, and it was perfect. Yes, a little inconvenient to maneuver from the entrance to the second building, […] which we were in...but after a time or two it seemed like nothing. The room was so so quiet. We never heard any of the street noise or any in the hallways, and we had a room right across from the elevators. We have traveled a lot, and I have never had such a quiet, restful room. Beds are great and the shower head amazing!! The staff was very very helpful and courteous. The only negatives I have would be no free WIFI in your room . My daughter is college age and needed to submit a paper. She had to use the makeshift business office because the original office was under renovation. It charged her $15 before she was finished. They offer lobby free wifi, but thats not conducive for a student. And I think they should put a solid door in the bathroom. The wooden sliding door is beautiful, but doesn't allow for a lot of privacy when using the bathroom. Other than that two minor issues, I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone!!

"Good location and close to the beach"
The hotel was really nice but the room had some flaws. Our room was across from the elevators and we had to listen to it making loud noises all night long. It was very disturbing.The bathroom in the room had no privacy. It had a door that didn't close completely and a window next to one of the beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location for first trip to Fort Lauderdale"
I honestly could not have asked for a better vacation, largely in part to this hotel. The minute we arrived the staff was incredible. The hotel smells amazing also. We had a smooth transition from check-in to check-out. I would recommend having an Oceanview room, it's worth the upgrade to hear and see the crashing waves of the beach every day. The […] bed was so comfortable, there are many options of restaurants within this hotel (Shulas was the best thing we ate the whole trip) and there is a Starbucks just downstairs. They offer complimentary towels and chairs for the pool and beach, and have a skyway to walk over to the beach. The hotel is very close to Las Olas Blvd for amazing shopping/restaurants, was close to jet skiing on the beach, close to anything really. I left here more relaxed than I have ever been, which if you check the hotel website, this is their number one goal and they certainly accomplish that goal. Alkeem checked us into the hotel with such an amazing attitude, we felt at home the second we arrived. He also helped us with suggestions of things to do if you don't have every day/night planned- and they ended up being some of the most fun things we did. This hotel made our trip seamless! Simply can't say anything else - and we had absolutely no problems booking through expedia - saved a ton, it was a great trip! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to beach and restaurants"
Perfectly located, clean and friendly hotel just across from beach. My only objection was that there are not enough chaises at the beach to accommodate the clients. We often had to wait on towels to get a place even as early as 9:30am. Same situation at the pool. Perhaps due to high volume in March? Still, a great hotel and location was wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"overall a great place"
Great location right near beach and boardwalk. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very well kept building. Only one complaint and it is pretty minor is the bathroom. The bathroom has a sliding door with no lock and gaps and a window with gaps into the bedroom. If your not just staying with a significant other it creates awkwardness due to sound and smell […] and making sure no one walks in on you. Still overall really happy we stayed here.

"good location, beware the charges"
Overall, the hotel is nice. Nice pool area. Skywalk to the beach is a nice plus. Staff were extremely polite, friendly, and helpful. I was annoyed with the $28 parking fee per 24 hours. Probably would have done cabs rather than a rental car if I had known it was that expensive (but shame on me for not asking). Internet needs upgrading and is expensive. […] Personally, I think parking and internet should always be included in the room price. Don't travel to south florida often, not sure if that's standard or not. Room was fine, nothing special. Nice oceanfront view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
