Two airy towers with hot bars, cool pools, and an enviable Fort Lauderdale Beach location
W Fort Lauderdale is a 517-room symbol of the new, more sophisticated face this former Spring-Break destination is wearing these days. It offers grown-up fun at every turn: one of the two infinity pools (Wet East) has glass panels on the bottom that let swimmers and guests having a signature cocktail in the Living Room lounge below get a glimpse of one another. The in-house restaurant, Stephen Starr’s STEAK 954, pairs creative cocktails and views of a 15-foot-long reef aquarium with its dry-aged beef.
In the Area
Talk about an embarrassment of riches: Fort Lauderdale has 23 miles of beaches (the W is situated on 315 feet of them), and 300 miles of canals and creeks (hence its nickname as the Venice of America). Explore the natural beauty at Fort Lauderdale Beach or by taking a gondola tour or river cruise, then head farther afield for an airboat or swamp buggy eco-tour of the Everglades. There are plenty of indoor adventures to be had, too, whether it’s taking in the Museum of Art or sampling the restaurants of Las Olas Boulevard.
