Overview
Located just steps from the beach, the W South Beach hotel offers guests an escape to secret gardens, fabulous views and modern design. Guests can relax in private cabanas by the two infinity pools or the beach, wander through the gardens with sculpturally unique fountains and private outdoor showers, fulfill cravings with gourmet food and beverage services or sip champagne and cocktails at the onsite nightclub or pool bar. With the Whenever/Wherever service, no request is too much to ask, even if you want your favourite NY bagels flown in for breakfast. Guests can sit back and enjoy their vacation while the W team works to satisfy their needs at this hotel.

Dream Team Much? Mark, John, Joe & Gaby

Ok. Ive stayed here a number of times - but I come back for a reason. Not only is the property gorgeous, but each stay gets better and better.Property. You can see the ocean from every room. Rooms ending in, or connected to, a 30 - absolutely BANANAS. You cant go wrong with bliss amenities - the sink side six - are abundant and if purchased from lets say Nordstroms or Sephora, would run you about thirty bucks a pop. The only bed more comfortable that Ive been in is probably the Prince de Galle in Paris. If youve come to relax, just lay in bed, look out the balcony at the ocean and drink champagne. Pool. The pool is always poppin, and if you are not into poppin, theres a quiet pool too. I might have tried everything on the poolside and beach menus, and have not been disappointed. And trust, i am quite a tool about my food.People.I have yet to meet a jerk in the building. From the guys at the door, to the food runners, to the cleaning staff (shout out to Ms Anne Marie, I wanted to take her sweet self home with me), everybody is pleasant, while still handling business. I mean, I have a day or ten each month when I am probably a nightmare to everyone who crosses my path. In addition to Ms Anne Marie, a few are of note to me:Gaby. Gaby is a W Insider. Not only is she gorgeous, but smart, funny, and resourceful. If she contacts you, just know that your stay may be the best one ever. I was very sad when Claudia left, but Gaby filled those shoes and then some.John is KING Insider (IMHO). I think he officially only handles whales (ala Tom Cruise, Lebron James), but he is so personable, remembers everything and everybody, regardless of "who they are." I cant count the number of times that he's recommended some place to us, we've gone and said he sent us, and every velvet rope came down.Joe is a Welcome Manager and Mark is the Welcome Director. Both will personally attend to any concern or need you have, even though they are really really busy. For example, Art Basel is a madhouse. Literally, everyone's famous (except me), everyone's VIP, and every room is sold out. Since the rooms are rack rate around this time - about $2000 per night at the lowest level - I just use points earned throughout the year. As a non revenue customer during this busy period however, I have been treated no differently. I was actually generously upgraded to a ridiculously large suite that sells for an amount I would only be willing to pay outside of a honeymoon suite on the moon lol. This type of upgrade is not normal - especially when cash is king, but the hotel staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Mark really went above and beyond, and certainly didn't have to do so.All Im saying is just get there. You'll love it too.

W for Wonderful.

Stayed for 5 days in August. First time in a ‘W’ and not disappointed. Location is a little out of the main Boardwalk but 15mns to that area is fine.Right in the beach with its own beach area. Walk or cycle along the boardwalk, only 6 bikes though which was disappointing (suggest they get more) so unless you get one early you have to rent one from the city bike rentals across the road.Pool area is great with plenty of beds although quite tightly packed in. Fab for people watching though. Pool is pretty standard contemporary if there is such a thing with a pool. Pool bar and restaurant of to one side with an entrance to the beach area.Really stylish place with some fantastic artwork adorning the walls.We had a ‘Fantastic ocean View Suite’ On the 16th (ish) floor. Fabulous views over the beach and into South Beach. Split into a lounge area, bedroom and bathroom. With a small toilet and bathroom near the lounge. A small kitchenette was a bonus even if we did just make coffee!A really nice room, a very contemporary and maybe was trying to hard but definitely not old school. Great TV choices and music facilities. Well-appointed room and very comfortable. Great views from the balcony with comfortable chairs to sit and chill.All in all a real pleasure and would revisit. Room service was great!

Great location, service could be a little better

The location absolutely cannot be beaten. Rooms are gorgeous and so are the views. While everyone at the pool bar was incredibly friendly, the service was very slow. Our breakfast order was simple but we got wrong toast, no water (as requested), and incorrect omelette. There were only 2 of us so that felt like a lot of mistakes for a very quiet morning. The night before we had a drink spilled down the back of my friend and everyone was incredibly apologetic. The poor waiter that spilled it felt awful and we assured them it was really no big deal. We were surprised however, that we didn't get that drink comped. Given that this is a nice and expensive hotel, we just thought that would have been a fair gesture. The very helpful woman at the front desk did give us a credit back at the end of our stay and that was helpful. Overall, decent hotel, just need a little help in the pool service.

Disappointed.in Service

First the good news. We had an upper floor room with great view of ocean and a spectacular sunset, Teen son forgot his charger and hotel provided one. Dinner in Chinese restaurant was very nice. Three incidents took the edge off the stay. 1. We arrived about 3:00 and had to wait for a receptionist as there was only one trying to sort out a clients problem and another person waiting. When finally another arrived we were serviced. 2. Our room was not ready, so we were offered the hospitality suite. The key we were given did not open the door..it remained red. So back down to get the key fixed. Again this key did not work. We found a staff person on the floor with a pass key. His key did not work either. He banged on door and maid opened it and let us in. She apparently had locked the door from the inside. WHY??? You can imagine that we getting a bit irritated by our reception. 3. Following breakfast the next day we were billed a very large amount. At check out we asked about the amount and learned that we should have been billed for one additional person, not for three. Again...WHY??? The person who gave us the bill was obviously not trained. Bottom Line: Great facility...but it has severe staffing issues that need to be addressed to make a $700 plus night worth the visit, There are lots of other choices on Miami Beach South.

Anniversary Stay

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the W South Beach. The front desk staff (Liz) worked especially hard to get us into their fabulous beach-facing room. We came their for our 24th wedding anniversary and were welcomed with special gifts. It doesn't get any classier than this hotel. Didn't even need a car. Could walk to Lincoln Street pedestrian mall in just a few minutes. Loved it.
