Realistically this hotel is somewhere in the top 3 places to stay in Miami. Everything else is either outdated or skeevy. The crowd is great (not wild but not a bunch of retirees either) and just what you expect at a W. The grounds are really well kept and the rooms are pretty spacious. Views from the balcony are pretty solid as they are built in such a way to optimize the view from every balcony. Further, the food options are incredible and there is a Mr. Chow in the lobby which is a must go to spot. A few options for drinks between the bar, lounge and club. Trendy hotel as with most Ws. The place was booked but sitting by the pool everyday we never felt it was crowded. The staff at the pool was incredibly attentive and constantly available should you need a drink, food, your umbrella opened, towels, etc. I am very picky and particular and this place hit all the points for me. The hotels that I put it up with for top 3 is the 1 which is next door and the Setai also next door. Coincidentally the 3 best places in Miami are all next to each other and the W is in the middle. Doubt it's coincidence LOL. STK across the street at 1 and great restaurants all in either walking distance or a few minute cab ride. We went to prime 112 and that was a 15 min ride. We will be back!! Collapse

One of our favorite properties in South Beach due to location and facility. However, the service level is one of the worst..... in the WORLD!!! They treat frequent travelers like we are a nuisance versus a guest. The front desk is poorly trained and have no clue what they are doing. Forget about getting a late check out, regardless of the fact that you can not check in until 4pm.... do you wonder what they do with the rooms they "kick you out of" between 11am and 4pm. Sad disappointment for an SPG property!!! Collapse

We traveled back to the W South Beach for a second time Easter weekend. We had reserved an ocean view suite and were excited about the visit. The trip immediately got off to a bad start when we were informed that our room was not ready and would not be ready until the afternoon of the following day. Therefore, we would have to have another room of lower value the first night and then move to another room. Given that they were charging close to $3,000 a night for the suite, it was incredible to me that they just simply marginalized us. It was a classic bait and switch. Lure you in with ocean suite and then overbook the hotel and tell you tough luck. The first night was loud with people arguing and kids screaming. Getting on the elevator was elbow to elbow. As the next day wore on, and we heard nothing about our new room, it became apparent that the hotel simply did not care, or they were understaffed and overwhelmed by the huge crowds. They finally moved us to the suite the next day at 5:00 p.m., more than 24 hours after we were supposed to have been there. They offered nothing for our troubles and did not respond to our inquiries on progress. They were however very eager to continue to charge for every incidental like an umbrella on the beach. The hotel was so crowded that you could not get space by the pool. The only thing the hotel did to make up for our reservation problem was to give us access to some pool space and chairs, which were hard to come by because the ratio of hotel rooms to pool space is not very favorable for getting a chair. Finally, we told them we were there to celebrate our anniversary, and the hotel did nothing to show its appreciation that we were celebrating there. You would expect that at a Hampton Inn, but when you are paying the prices the W charges, you would have expected better. I would caution anyone thinking about going to the W South Beach to realize that the hotel first and foremost cares about maximizing the number of bodies on the property and charging accordingly. They are perfectly willing to overbook and jerk people around on rooms as a result, and are not willing to invest in the customer service required to call yourself a five star hotel necessary to serve such a large number of guests. I might consider going back if they charged 2 star prices, but with 5 star prices, I will seek out a hotel that puts the customer first and provides a level of service one would expect at $3,000 a night. The W South Beach is simply not that hotel. Collapse

Although very expensive the rooms are frequently not "refreshed" in the evening, no soaps are replaced, a kid used the swimming pool as the bathroom and the hotel took half an hour to clean it. Last but not least somebody threw a glass from a balcony on people lying in the sun. They were lucky because somebody could have been really hurt. Be careful to the minibar. They charge unused things for hundred of dollars and they keep on charging after you have left. Collapse

Good rooms - great location - eating and drinking in hotel is completely and totally overpriced for the product and hotel type. Some staff a little to cocky and impatient when ordering and trying to understand costs and product. 50 dollars a night if you have hired a car for valet parking is extra and considering the car may cost 100 dollars per day this is an absurd cost. On the advice of a staff member we opted to let our car in a public car park at 2 dollars an hour however we still got a parking fine. Please note however the hotel did refund both the parking fine and the parking charge after challenging them on same which is to be recognised. Enjoyed our 4 night stay however we could not enjoy the facilities fully as a regular beer and a glass of wine in the bar was 35 dollars ex tip and breakfast was 120/140 dollars for 2 adults and 2 kids. For Those with no budget limitations you should have no issues. Collapse
