Located at the epicenter of all that’s vibrant on Fort Lauderdale Beach, W Fort Lauderdale is the ideal escape after a $55 Million Dollar renovation (completed 2018). Its new public spaces, guest rooms and amenities are inspired by the blue hues of the sea and quintessentially capture all that shimmers on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Soak in the sunshine at one of two WET Decks, each with infinity pools, bars and private cabanas. Fuel up before the start of the day with our beach boot camp & sunrise yoga or muscle up the strength at our 24 hour FIT Gym. Get your glow on at our spa or indulge beach side at James Beard Award Winner Stephen Starr’s Steak 954 & El Vez. We’re here for our guests 24/7 with our signature Whatever/Whenever service.

How close is the W to the Fort Lauderdale cruise port?
We actually cruised out of Miami but the Fort Lauderdale port is quite close. It’s only a few miles and depending on traffic maybe 10-15 minutes. You could see the port from our balcony

Hey James, No place to park on he street or anywhere close by the FL. Miami beach is even worse! Do yourself a favor save the headache and just valet at the hotel. I know it’s expensive but it the easiest way to go. Have fun!

I brought a small cooler bag everyday. I have also brought it to the West Side Pool (residents pool). I have even ordered lunch from Steak 954 and brought it pool side. I got bored with the pool menu after a couple of days.
