My fourth floor room, which faced north, over the bar and patio, was so close to them, and the music playing so thunderously loud that even the staff had to shout to be heard, was clearly audible in my room.

My fourth floor room, which faced north, over the bar and patio, was so close to them, and the music playing so thunderously loud that even the staff had to shout to be heard, was clearly audible in my room. When I called to the front desk and asked how long it would play, I was told 1 AM. I said I wouldn't be able to sleep given the volume, and I got an apology. That's it. No offer to move to another room or anything. I checked out and spent the night elsewhere. Again, no apologies. No token of appreciation. I did get a call from a manager who promised me enough Bonvoy points to stay one e more to prove the quality of their service, but the points never arrived. So, I paid a $57 parking bill for a fews hours parking, and $100 for an overpriced meal in the restaurant that was next to the bar and had three different songs wafting into the dining room from different sources. Why would I ever stay here again? Who has proven that they mean what they say? Even the manager lied to me on the phone, no one truly is sorry and I had to leave the hotel at 10 PM to find a quiet place to sleep. This is a place for clueless hipsters or unknowing foreigners eager to part with their money. Read less

THANK YOU... THANK YOU... THANK YOU... we spent the weekend at the W South Beach, mainly poolside and the service provided was top notch! MAX specifically made it extra special, so attentive, quick and sweet...also a mind reader. He was so so lovely and definitely the reason we will be returning. He made sure to check in with us... let us know the best seats for optimal sun and enjoyment... he also seemed to read our minds.. a simple glance in the direction of the umbrella promoted him to ask us if we would like it up/down/moved! Unreal experience! Obviously would highly recommend... and if you’re lucky you may have the pleasure of encountering Max at the pool! Read less

Nice cushioned beach beds for the guests (don’t get cushions at many other places) - Chris was really great at helping us find a nice bed in the sun and getting us an umbrella for free when the seagulls were trying to steal our coconut shrimp!
