    Cracked the Formula For The Perfect Hotel Stay

    I am with Marriott Bonvoy and hold Platinum Elite Status. I travel the world for a living and Personal Attention Sometimes is key to remembering specific places. This is an excellent hotel with professional, friendly and helpful staff. The Westin is an example of a hotel that can cater to a wide variety of comfort expectations, while simultaneously being located in a beautiful beachfront location. It is extremely clean and comfortable. I was thoroughly impressed with the amenities of a larger refrigerator and a walkout Lanai. In addition to this, the hotel features free bicycles, to help you maximize your valuable sightseeing time. And then, of course, there’s the newly reopened Lona restaurant, a decked out Pool bar, and more, when it comes to food and drink. I originally booked my stay for a couple of days to try the hotel out and get a perfect sense of the atmosphere of this hotel. I instantly loved the warm staff. I send my sincere appreciation to Danny the General Manager, Ron the Director of HR and front desk staff Iris, Xavier, Robert and Alin for my amazing extended two month stay so far. They make the hotel! The were very attentive and accommodating. I’m currently looking to purchase a condo, and they were great with advice and recommendations about the specific areas in Fort Lauderdale and surrounding areas. Above all, the hotel you stay in should work with your expectations and personal tastes. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. It's a true example of excellent hospitality. Thank You!

    Time to up their game

    While traveling during the virus I stayed here. Typical of hotel during this time the staff clearly did not want to be working and made it clear we should be thankful they were working. Trash in the common areas and no cleaning of the rooms unless we paid extra for that privilege. I would avoid this location even after the virus passes.

    Nice Springbreak vacation

    We stayed at the Westin during the Springbreak. The location of the hotel is far enough from the action. We liked the fact that there was a passageway to get to the beach. When we were there, the hotel pool was closed for maintenance. They gave us access to the pool at the W next door which was nice. Overall we had a good stay, everyone working at the Westin was nice and helpful. We found that if was difficult to find places to eat that were affordable and kid friendly close to the hotel. And, we did not like the "window" in the bathroom!
