Ultimate hot spot on FTL beach
When W Fort Lauderdale opened, it became one of the top hotels on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The upper pool deck overlooking the beach is a great place to enjoy cocktails, while the glass-bottom pool above the lobby gives guests a sexy view from down below. As is with the W brand, rooms are stylish, modern and well-appointed with the most comfortable beds in the industry. W Fort Lauderdale is particularly active with the GLBT community and hosts many gay events.
The W Fort Lauderdale has become a popular hotel choice among MyGayGetaway.com web users in 2017.
Throughout the year this hotel hosts many LGBT events. The last two photos in this set are from Gay Days Fort Lauderdale.
The W Ft Lauderdale is more than a resort hotel! It is similar to stepping into a new modern lifestyle and cultural experience. The employees are polite well trained and treat you as you expect to be treated. Do not miss the pool deck,restaurants,and the living room bar and patio overlooking the ocean.

Amazing & Can't wait to visit again!
One of my best experiences ever! I travel for work so I live in hotels but the W was truly exceptional and made my stay very special. Multiple people from the hotel went above and beyond to really make sure that my stay is perfect. Not even mention how amazing the property is! The pool is overlooking the ocean and the rooms mostly all ocean views. The location is the best and super close to everything! Just can't wait to visit! -MonikaPhiladelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We were upgraded from a regular room to a two bedroom suite/apartment. It was huge and beautiful - even had washer/dryer. We had dinner at Steak 954 and loved it. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly. -X375IEelizabethg, New York City, New York
