If you’re one of those travelers who think Florida is overdone, think again. W Fort Lauderdale, with its own spa, restaurants, and two heated pools, promises something new and exciting in a Sunshine State getaway.  

A Getaway Like No Other

Find your bliss at W Fort Lauderdale. Book an individual or couples massage in one of the AWAY spa’s private treatment rooms, or get hair and makeup done, with a little extra from their Glam Station, before a night out. Swim in the sky at the WET East and WET West rooftop pools, or lounge on the poolside deck with unmarred views of the ocean. Prefer your feet on the ground? Practice a little self-care with complimentary fitness classes on the beach, or bike the hotel’s bike/jogging trail.

Fine Dining On-Site

W Fort Lauderdale’s attention to detail doesn’t stop with the guest rooms, spa, and pool; there are four distinct restaurants to try something new or enjoy familiar favorites in a laid-back yet sophisticated atmosphere. Steak 954, noted for its 15′ aquarium, serves up dry-rubbed meats to precise specifications. El Vez, with its Mexican cantina-influenced decor and menu, keeps dozens of kinds of tequila on hand and offers indoor and al fresco seating. Splurge on freshly prepared sushi and sake cocktails at Sushi Bar, or visit the WET rooftop bar for drinks and light fare.

Go Exploring

Guests of W Fort Lauderdale can take their bikes to the nearby Birch State Park; bike the trails, kayak or explore the coastal dune lake. If city sights are more your speed, don’t miss the on-trend shopping on Las Olas. While you’re there, check out the art galleries, cafes, and bars along Las Olas Boulevard. Of particular interest: Louie Bossi, where diners get authentic Italian dishes, from hand-tossed pizza to sauces made from scratch. If waterfront is more your speed, Shooter’s Waterfront has you covered for dinner and a water taxi to match.

W Fort Lauderdale offers everything travelers to Fort Lauderdale could want, from location to amenities, in an upscale setting dedicated to the guest experience.
