Rated 5 out of 5 by Dimi123 Great hotel for vacation or businnes meetings
We were here for an international conference. The hotel was at proximity with the convention center. The beach was right next to us. The restaurants inside the hotel are excellent. The people and the service at the W (whatever whenever) are awsome. We asked the concierge for assistance and Vicky helped us a lot! In addition, Felix from the Banquets was great as well. In general this is a highly recommended hotel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NEWYORKMIAMI W south beach stay
The hotel is situated nicely on the beach, the staff is trained to be very pleasant, but there are some issues with hotel.
Two of the rooms I stayed at had a lot of wear and tear, stained sofas, beat up wood cabinetry. Or outdoor showers that never worked in a $900 a night room.
The kitchen does a terrible job serving breakfast near pool, despot an friendly staff.
Staff in general is very friendly and well trained.

Although the lunch menu was less than expected...a big shout out to Courtney who searched me down to fix a lunch order. I don't mind paying for something worth the amount charged - it wasn't and was dissapointed with the options. The value wasn't there.
The room was great - clean - big - so I felt I got what I expected in that respect.
The weather was awesome but I am not sure if the hotel was responsible for that?

I've stayed at the W South Beach 4 times in the last 2 years and love every visit. I am overly impressed with the hotel, staff, pool and rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boomer79 Another great stay at the W!
Booked 1 night at the W and used a Suite Night Reward to upgrade to an Oasis Suite. I really love this property! The normal rooms are very nice, but the suites are just amazing. This is my 5th or 6th stay at the W South Beach and it was another winner! My only complaint is that the front desk can be a little slow depending on when you arrive to check in/out.

The Whatever Whenever specialist John made my stay so pleasurable. He identified me as a SPG and made my guest and I feel so welcome. He went through my whole itinerary with me and made sure everything was top of the line. Not to mention the property was beyond peaceful. The only snag was at the beach, where the W rep seemed not to want to assist my party and I with beach chairs.
I will be back!

I always feel a little more special when I stay at the South Beach property, and with my new Gold Card status I feel like this place is mine. Lol. Twice Shavonne has come to my rescue and I just want to express my sincerest, most humble gratitude for her assistance last weekend. I don't need to tell you guys how nice the place is, but considerate service to flustered guests make all the difference. Thanks again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IareOne very nice hotel
Over all the Hotel was very nice and had great features which made our stay very comfortable. The only two thing that I had an issue with; the WiFi was free in the Lobby and pool but not in the room (this to me felt like a money grab), also the staff (very helpful and responsive) at any task they lingered around until you reached into your pocket and tipped them. it made my wife very uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by km4401 Just Great
Stayed a week at this gorgeous hotel. Name of room "Fabulous Room" was perfect. Spacious bathroom, cozy bed, 2 tvs, mini kitchen, comfy sofa, and large terrace with 2 loungers, table, and 2 chairs. What could be better. Not much better than at the W. We stay at more than 25 hotels a year and none has given us more for our money than the W. Have already booked a 10 day stay in February! Can't wait!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cichero8 service not worth the price
this is my fifth or sixth stay at the W and things aren´t getting any better. Service and valet are slow, cleanliness is average and staff is below expectations for the price of the hotel. What makes it worse now is the construction site right next to the W wich means the beach time is not relaxed and heavy on noises.
You should be thankful for your location. Its what keeps people coming back...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice46 Love the hotel.
The only thing we do not like about the hotel is the bar.
It is soooo dark and too small so it is always crowded and the music if that is what you call it is loud and not conducive to having a quiet drink and talking. Every time we thought we would stop after dinner for a drink we walked in and walked right back out because of the above reasons. But otherwise we love everything about the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Her50 Great location, rooms are excellent.
We had a wonderful vacation at the W. Great location, wonderful facilities, beautiful beach.The members of the pool staff were outstanding.
There is a lot of room for improvement with the lobby and desk staff. At times they were aloof and not very helpful.At check out, I had to struggle with my own bags, while the staff in the lobby walked around appearing to be busy and not offering to help.

Beautiful hotel,friendly staff,clean, modern and very quiet ! Hard to find all that in one hotel !!
Food was amazing! Especially the short ribs and grouper !! And Jose in the restaurant Dutch went beyond his duty to make our visit special !!!
I even brought my little dog and he was welcomed !!
I would highly recommend this hotel.
Trying to plan another trip back and we just left !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JGRlll Fun weekend hotel!
The hotel is fun and the location is great as its not in the center of the maddness. I recommend it during the week as it is more quiet and low key. The beach access is great and not crowded. The mini bar is a fortune. I wish the hotel would do everything for free except for the liquor like the Andaz Hotels. Also, the food is very expensive when ordering room service - it's not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thenance W South Beach is a great place to stay.
This was our 6th stay at the W South Beach. Many of the staff members are the same since our first visit and welcomed us back like family.
The hotel staff go out of their way to meet any request you have. The rooms are great, food and beverages are awesome. Definitely a hotel for adults even though there were small children in the pool area. For a great stay, choose the W South Beach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RBAL Week-end in SoBe
The hotel and facilities (gym, pool, tennis court) are stunning.
However, I have noticed a couple of issues during my stay.
1) Trouble getting to the correct floor because of the key card
2) Too many people / or too few lounge chairs available at the pool, and very slow service
3) Check-in time 4 pm is late (but I was offered to change in the 'hospitality room')
4) No SPG recognition

The W in South Beach Miami far exceeded our expectations. From check-in to check-out, the entire weekend was executed flawlessly. The service is impeccable, the room spacious and stunning, the pool evokes true South beach class and The Dutch....what's there not to say about my new favourite breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant!
We will certainly only stay at the W when in town.

Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome! W Hotel South Beach
A very modern and elegant hotel located at a prime location on South Beach. Top notch staff greeted us with a smile and provided great service to us during our stay. A spotlessly clean and very chic room was waiting for us with a great view of South Beach. A great place for a romantic getaway, a business meeting or a relaxing vacation. I was very impressed with this hotel. Fabulous!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SG4868 Too much noise from construction next door
The entire stay was tainted due to the fact that the noise level next door from the construction was unbearable at the pool. And then they blasted the music higher poolside which was torture as I was sitting next to the speakers. I understand that on the weekends there is a DJ and the music is loud (which is great!) but this was a weekday. The jackhammering was nonstop for 3 hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Timmy48 Great Location - Friendly Staff - No SPG Benefits
The staff was friendly and the facilities are great. However, I am a platinum for life member and did not get an upgrade, got charged for having a roll away bed, and the continental breakfast is not worth it. I would definitely return but would have no illusions about being treated special. And being a guest at the hotel does not necessarily mean you get access to the night club.

Plan to buck up but what do you expect in South Beach. If you're worried about being overcharged for food, beverages and everything on site then this isn't the place for you. This Hotel is perfect for a weekend of fun at no expense.

This hotel exceeded all my expectations. The staff went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. The pool was beautiful and had a cool vibe. And although the food and beverage was expensive I assume that it's to be expected at a hotel like this. The rooms were beautiful and the views were spectacular. Definitely would go back in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edge41 Over the top!!
The South Beach W was WONDERFUL to say the least. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived to the minute we left. We were upgraded to an ocean front Fantastic suite, and FANTASTIC it was. It had a huge balcony and every single thing you could wish for. The pool was incredible along with the service of the staff.
There really is no other place to stay in Miami!

Rated 4 out of 5 by YONDER MOSTLY CHIC WITH A BIT OF FAUX
I have been here on several occasions. Experience marred by rude pool staff who gave preferential treatment to unit owners - excuse me, I'm a paying guest. Many noisy kids in pool. Love the units - BUT toilet and sink malfunctioned, and the cleaning staff could have done better. Be prepared for loud music permeating the beautiful ocean-view windows way into the wee hours...

Rated 4 out of 5 by BusinessStay1014 This hotel has excellent services.
The overall experience was outstanding. However, the food selection at The Dutch was limited in terms of Breakfast and Supper. I found it to be extremely pricey. The service at the Dutch by the wait staff was outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by S302 great stay but...
I have stayed here twice this year and it has been wonderful. W South Beach is a great property, has a great staff and I would definitely stay here again. The only bad thing I have to say is that during both of my recent stays we had problems checking out.. Beware of hidden fees and extra charges. I had to get my bill adjusted both times, and both times it was a hassle..!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by katja great location
Disappointed with the room, too noisy..
Traffic, slamming doors and not the beach view I expected. No kitchen utilities and not so fancy and upgraded room as promised!
Had to pay for internet which I think belongs to the two star hotels. Personnel friendly and helpful but complaining and changing room is never convenient.
Hotel room and other facilities clean and guarded.

We stayed in a Mega Suite that contained a second story outdoor kitchen which included an outdoor TV and seating for 8. Also on this level was a plung pool with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The lower level had a high end kitchen, killer bose stereo and a wide open entrance to the patio. Unbelievable! Service was truly the exceptional and every detail was perfect.

I am a hick from a small town and had accumulated some free nights via a recent SPG prommotion and decided to spend them @ the W Hotels in Fort Lauderdale and South Beach. I stayed 3 nights here. The service is great, the staff, of which there is a plenty go out of their way to make sure you are being taken care of. It has a great location and the hotel is beautiful.

Evidently your internet security gave my laptop VPN some problems different frommost other Hotels- it required a differnet set of computer setting for your strange security in place.
I travel and stay over 100 nights a yr and havent seen this excersize before - so you might want to review this . IT jsut causes the business customer delays for no specific reason...
