Me and a group of friends flew in from Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey. We took our very first “ Friends Trip” and decided to pay a visit to the W hotel as we heard such good things. The hotel itself was beautiful and the people were polite. However, what stuck out most to me during our time there was the amazing pool manager Mike!! He was so kind and welcoming, he treated me and my group of friends as if we were his very own family. He even recommended places for us to have dinner while we were in town. We tried one and the food was amazing. People like Mike are rare to find when traveling these days. At the hotel we were provided with pool chairs and towels in the shade, complimentary water infused with lemon and limes, and also given menus to order lunch pool side. We really appreciate Mike for his hospitality and providing such great service. I would absolutely visit this hotel again knowing that Mike will make my stay very comfortable. Read less
