Who is it for? The W hotel has positioned itself so it can appeal to any type of traveller.  Whether you are going as a couple (at any age), a family with kids, or a group of friends, this hotel will appeal to you.

Our Take:

The hotel is beautifully done and has some amazing art pieces hanging on the walls in the lobby.  Check in will be a smooth process because at the W, they are very customer service focussed.  The rooms are nicely decorated, and start at a really good size.  They also include a fridge and microwave which is good when you are traveling with kids.  The pool is really great as well as it has steps that lead in slowly so if you are with younger kids they can get ease into the water.  The service by the pool is quick and you can order from their menu or the menu from the restaurant inside.  Security stands between the pool and the beach to ensure that only guests of the hotel are using the pool which helps to keep it from getting overcrowded and noisy.

The beach is easily accessible, just across the boardwalk and has chairs set up for the guests.  There are great beach toys as well for the kids to play with.

The hotel itself is really well located on the strip.   It is at the further end of the main hub of the strip which is nice as you can easily get to all the action, but don’t feel like you are staying right in the middle of it.  In walking distance to the hotel you can find amazing restaurants, shopping and some great workout classes.

If you are planning to head to Miami I would most definitely recommend considering the W hotel because it is not only beautiful and centrally located, but also because they strive to ensure all their guests are happy and having a wonderful holiday.
