The W South Beach Hotel is a newly built resort engineered to maximize guest comforts and conveniences at every point. While many hotels on South Beach are “new and improved” versions of Art Deco landmarks, the 312-room W South Beach tackled key issues like maximizing guest spaces and facilitating ocean views at the blueprint stage. The end result is a meticulously branded property where even standard rooms have separate living and sleeping areas with 2 flat panel TVs, strategically angled glass balconies and large, luxuriously appointed bathrooms. Studio rooms start at a generous 560 square feet and include a sofa, CD & DVD player in the living area separated with a glass partition from the comfy pillow-topped bed.
Egyptian cotton linens, plush terry towels, bathrobes, and Bliss Spa products add to the upscale vibe of the property which offers upgrades to larger rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites with kitchenettes, private plunge pools and wrap-around terraces. If your budget is too big for mere hotel room, you can party like a rock star and reserve one of the luxe 3 story poolside bungalows with direct access to the pool.
Service at the property is top notch. Branded “Whatever/Whenever” (accenting the W in all things), hotel staff are courteous, energetic and decidedly good looking. 24 hour room service including delivery of a pre-dawn DVD are no bother. An Acura SUV driver facilitates your South Beach adventures from 10am-7pm and will deliver you anywhere within a 5 mile radius of the hotel at no charge. The fully appointed Bliss Spa and a 24 hour fitness center stand at the ready should you crave a massage or a midnight workout. Poolside food and drinks arrive at your lounge or private cabana via sleek, toga-clad hostesses.
Top tier resorts on South Beach have vanquished the notion of stodgy hotel dining and the W’s Mediterranean Solea and Pan-Asian Mr Chow restaurants are no exception. While nearby nightclubs on 23 street are close enough to walk to in stilettos, the Wall Nightclub attracts plenty of South Beach eye candy on site. Located on the northern edge of the tourist district, the W gives guests quick access to Miami Beach’s art museums, convention center, beachfront broadwalk and shopping along Lincoln Road Mall. For all else, just hop into that free SUV!
