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
"Anniversary weekend getaway"
Beautiful hotel, steps from beach. Walkway to pool/bar from beach was nice touch. Complimentary beach chairs, Starbucks in hotel bonus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel before and unexpectedly after cruise"
Hotel is located right across the street from the ocean in a nice but busy part of Ft Lauderdale only a short drive to the cruise terminal. Staff was very attentive, accommodating and pleasant - they took extra good care of us when we needed a hotel room after the cruise when our flight was cancelled due to a snow storm at home - upgraded us to a beautiful […] oceanfront room that we really enjoyed. Shula's Restaurant in the hotel was also quite good, we had both breakfast and dinner there, each time at an oceanfront window table. The outdoor pool area is good size, lots of deck chairs surrounding the pool with a bar and tables where you can order from the lunch menu including sushi. We will definitely plan to stay here again when in Ft Lauderdale. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was old and facilities were extremely disappointing. Not a 5 star by any shape or form.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel, across 4 lane road from public beach"
The hotel was nice but food and drink were overpriced. Lots of kids. We got a pool cabana for a few days which allowed us to bring our own licquor, they provide mixers, unlimeted towels etc. Service for food, ice was spotty. Overall it was very relaxing but overpriced for the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall a great place to stay!"
The view and hotel was awesome! The breakfast waiter was very very slow and told is he was hungover. This showed in his service. Very poor. The pool staff was pretty much the same. Sushi was awesome! Highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel & staff!"
The service is excellent! The front desk staff, concierge, pool attendants, and bellhops are all very friendly and helpful. Shula's on the Beach is a wonderful restaurant with excellent food, service and great views. I'll definitely be staying here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great views, great location."
Beautiful views of the ocean and the beach front walk. Very close to many good restaurants, fun bars and shops.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A room facing a wall!!"
I opened the door to my room and thought it seemed really dark. I walked to the window thinking the curtains must be closed. They were open!! One foot from the window was a concrete block wall whichextended at least another floor above my room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"You see the sunrise right from your bed"
Great location, right at the beach. We stayed on the 14th floor, we felt like we were on a cruise ship. Room service needs some serious management though and the food was not that great either, but the sushi bar was awesome and there are tons of restaurants within 15 minutes of walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location for one or two daysGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall I had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated with modern feel. I loved beds - the most comfortable I've ever experienced at any hotel so far . I loved the fact that there were down pillows and blankets , and that blankets had duvets ( not annoying flat sheets). However, I was missing sitting area in the room- besides […] office chair and beds , there is no place to sit during the day. With the fact that the hotel has no balconies , it was bit of an issue to me - hard to enjoy cup of coffee for instance or nice view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"20 minutes from the airport"
If you want to be nickle and dimed - this is your place! No free wi-fi in the rooms - what's with that? When paying what we paid for a room - this should be included. A bonus - a Starbucks in the hotel. Elevator to A1A beach cross was not working the entire 6 days we stayed there. I felt sorry for the elderly people in our hotel or the ones with little […] kids crossing the street. I feel Westin should step up and offer some complimentary "somethings" to account for this. Slow elevators across the board. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love the location, Parking Extra charge."
The location is great across the street from beach, next to awesome restaurants. Rooms are not too roomy, but nice and very clean. Staff is extra nice and helpful expecially front desk and concierge. It is pet friendly I took my dog and everybody was nice. I would go there again. The only extra expense is the valet parking is $28.00 a day plus tip […] ($5.00).

"Clean,great room & amenities close to beach"
First off they have a great staff. This was a wonderful hotel, clean room with all the details with spectacular view of the beach/ocean. Pool was warm and lounge area inviting, the restaurant in the hotel, The restaurant had an excellent steak dinner. We also enjoyed the bar poolside. There was a great workout room that overlooked the ocean and a spa […] where you could jump into a sauna or a jacuzzi and attached to the hotel a coffee shop with great seating outside with views of the ocean. Overall great experience and hotel and we will be back ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a four star hotel"
Checked into the hotel and arrived at the room. The water in the toilet and shower were green. Called the front desk and we were told it's not recommended to drink the water and that we can pay for water from the in room dining or the gift shop. When we went down to the beach and put our names on a long list for beach chairs, we noticed a few more couples […] walk on the beach and get chairs instantly. One instance was a shady transactions where the beach staff received a payment for giving them chairs right away. While on the beach numerous chairs with towels were empty for over an hour while I assume the guests were out to lunch. We spoke with a manager who let us know that they would "investigate" the "pay off" for chairs. We also let them know about the green water which we took pictures of because the manager looked at us like we were making it up. We never got a response from anyone. We checked back the next day about the water and a different employee informed us that the water is just fine to drink and she drinks it all the time; she also mentioned that the employee who informed us not to drink it was just trying to get us to spend money at the hotel. The sky walk was also out of order for safe access to the beach. Pool staff was GREAT and FRIENDLY and so was housekeeping. I just expected alot more at "4 star hotel" Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
