I splurged on this room and found what I thought to be the nicest hotel in south beach. I did a lot of research on the exact room I wanted.

I splurged on this room and found what I thought to be the nicest hotel in south beach. I did a lot of research on the exact room I wanted. Upon arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a different one, but when we got there I wished we had the one I planned for. We arrived exactly at check in time, but had to wait in the nearby lounge for over an hour for our room to be ready. Again, not even the one we wanted. Waiting with a 2 & 3 year old was terrible. No free food was comped or anything. We asked for a crib at check in and even before arriving. It wasn’t brought until around 10pm. The glass windows all around the suite were filthy. It completely ruined the feeling. They could’ve been easily cleaned and maintained but weren’t. We had the concierge order us a limo to take us to our yacht after check out and it was late. Then the driver kept WASTING OUR TIME. Taking us to the wrong places constantly. The good: I was feeling under the weather and our bell boy offered to go across the street and buy me cold medication. I used it my whole trip and it really helped. The brunch restaurant inside the lobby is really pleasant. Our room had a nice bathtub and three toilets. Read less

Last week, a few friends and I visited the W South Beach for vacation. This is my third straight year visiting the W South Beach during March and once again it was nothing short of spectacular. We are not only loyal guests of the W South beach but are also loyal Marriott Bonvoy Members and the manager, Rick Ueno upgraded us to the most amazing WOW suite. It was the most beautiful hotel room I have ever stayed in. I am a frequent traveler and have stayed in many upscale resorts and no room can even compare to the WOW suite. The suite had the most beautiful views and was 1900 square feet! Rick has been so fantastic over the past 3 years of me knowing and communicating with him when I come to the W. He has always made our trips special. Before arriving, a concierge Majd reached out to me asking what he could do to make our stay amazing. Throughout our stay he was constantly checking in with me to make sure everything was perfect (which it was!). We we arrived in our room, we had a bottle of champagne, chocolates and fruit. He also helped us get upgraded to the WOW suite. I have nothing but great things to say about the staff and management staff at the W. Everyone was (and always has been) so attentive and friendly. The service is fantastic. The pool is beautiful and the beach is just breath-taking. The pool and beach staff/waiters are always on their A game as well. I HIGHLY recommend this resort. I can't wait until our next stay. Read less

It was 8 years since we were last in the hotel. But again we enjoyed it very much. Great room with space, big balcony with great views, good bed en bathroom as you wish you had at home. It is expensive but worth the money. Pool great and certainly the Wet bar with good lunch. Nice staff and next time in Miami we will be back at the W.

We spent a little over 3 days here for a quick birthday vacation! Unfortunately, we needed to return earlier than expected due to current Coronavirus circumstances. Upon changing our flight, we proceeded to check out immediately. The lovely concierge asked why we were leaving early. He stated he was sorry to hear, but that he understood. The fee for early check-out and the next night was waived. We enjoyed every minute of our experience here, from check-in, to the recommendations that were sent via text message to my partner. We had an amazing view of the beach/water and our suite was GLAMOUROUS. We loved the cozy vibe of Irma's. The staff at the beach were wonderfully attentive and super helpful. We appreciated that each and every staff person we interacted with was energetic. The W hotel's staff emits a vibe that makes everyone feel at home here! Special shout out to the wonderful lady who was cleaning our room and let us hang out on the balcony while she worked. And to the hotel staff member we met in the elevator, commented that someone smelled nice, and then told us about his favourite scent to wear! (It's called Alien, I hope he sees this!) We will definitely be back. Thank you for supporting us W Hotel :) Read less
