LOUNGING GLAMOROUSLY ON 315 FEET OF SOUTH FLORIDA’S SUGAR-SAND COASTLINE, W FORT LAUDERDALE OCCUPIES ONE OF NORTH BEACH’S MOST AWE-INSPIRING ADDRESSES.
In 2018, W Fort Lauderdale completed a $55 million-dollar renovation, bringing a fresh, high-contrast, ultra-glamorous design to the entire property, including both the hotel and residences. The renovations touched every corner of the property, including all 517 guest rooms, suites, and residential suites, the grand porte cochere, rooftop WET deck pool, and existing meeting spaces. Plus, the addition of Mingle, a 4,000 square foot ballroom.
W Fort Lauderdale is the only W property where guests can play peek-a-boo with swimmers without diving in. From a colorful cocktail list to DJ’s spinning on weekends, this high-energy sunbathing mecca really sizzles.
Designed by award-winning interior designer, Meyer Davis Studio, in conjunction with the W Brand’s global design team, the hotel’s décor and design reflects the shimmering energy of Fort Lauderdale Beach while staying true to the bold and signature aesthetic for which W Hotels are known. It’s happy hour every hour at W Fort Lauderdale where guests can sip sumptuous signature cocktails at the sleek-but- laid back Living Room and socialize with the stylish crowd.
W Fort Lauderdale has every craving covered, from pure indulgence at Stephen Starr’s Steak 954, to poolside snacks at WET Cafe and SUSHI Bar. For elevated Mexican cuisine, head to El Vez where the guac, margs, and ambiance do not disappoint! Plus, they have outstanding service!
Steak 954 was named “Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year” at the 2017 James Beard Foundation Awards. Stephen Starr showcases the pure flavors of dry-aged meats & freshly caught seafood alongside a stellar cast of sides, sauces, and a buzz-worthy selection of fine wines & cocktails. Try to snag a seat near the 15-foot-long aquarium populated by 175 mesmerizing jellyfish.
Under the helm of Stephen Starr, El Vez brings a vibrant setting where guests can enjoy lounge seating and patio space with breathtaking ocean views as they indulge in craft cocktails and tasty Mexican fare.
After eating, you’ll want to take a stroll down Las Olas Boulevard, which houses Fort Lauderdale’s most eclectic collection of shops and dining along the area’s tropical waterways. Seventeen blocks of sidewalk cafes, world class shopping, sizzling nightlife, and international acclaimed art galleries give everyone something to enjoy.
