We really loved this clean, upscale hotel. The staff was great and very professional. The room was astounding. Really loved this hotel and it would definitely be my hotel of choose every time we visit Fort Lauderdale.

"The Westin is a good property but needs updating"
The Westin is a quality hotel directly across from the beach. It is pretty much as advertised but realize there are additional fees for most extras (mandatory daily resort fee, internet fee, parking fee, etc.). The pool area is nice and it was crowded on a Sat. afternoon. Carpet in hallways and rooms is old and the solid yellow/gold color shiws many stains (needs replacing) but beach hotels are tough to keep clean and attractive. Rooms have island style (odd) wood plantation shutters from room into bathroom and the bathroom door is a large sliding wooden shutter style - so privacy in the bath is limited ! It is generally a good hotel with pleasant staff that just needs some uodating.
This was the first time i visited Fort Lauderdale Florida so i found this hotel online at a good price and i must say im glade that i choose it, its a few minutes away from the beach and not far from town, I found the hotel really good it was like i was staying in an apartment, both the manager and the cleaner were both very friendly and helpful it was fantastic also the location it nice was well not to far from the airport plus there is a swimming pool which i found to be very good would recommend it to anybody.
We arrived with our 5 month old baby for a much needed get away. The hotel staff is some of the best I have seen and I Travel for business internationally and stay in some great hotels. They remembered our boy's name and were always quick with a answer when asked. Sometimes to much so. Sometimes to become too familiar is annoying when one just wants to relax, but I am a New Yorker, so we are a bit leery of to friendly types.
The room was super. Clean, well appointed. We stayed on the coastal side and a huge turbine was to loud to stay outside to long.
We met several people who were staying for the weekend and they were super. The bar and staff at the outdoor pool were amazing. Really really good staff. Kid friendly as well. They brought us a little onesy for our son. Very thoughful.
Okay, the big buzz crusher was the restaurant. Pasta very okay. Too heavy on the sauces. Not much imagination from the chef. Nothing local. We ate all our meals at the hotel and were trying to eat something good. We didn't manage to do that. Fix the restaurant and the hotel will be one of the best in Florida and east coast.
In spite of that, we will be going back for the accommodations and staffing. Worth the money. Great work out room too.
