Near the business districts of Deerfield Beach, Cypress Creek and Oakland Park, The Westin Fort Lauderdale now presents the latest generation of guestrooms for optimal comfort, productivity and rest.
Managed by TPG Hospitality, The Westin Fort Lauderdale is a part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:HOT). With the completion of the renovation, the new design of Westin Fort Lauderdale is a part of TPG Hospitality's national portfolio improvement plan, which includes the renovation and in some cases rebranding of dozens hotels coast-to-coast. The enhancement is in conjunction with the Westin brand's efforts to continuously refresh its rapidly growing global portfolio, which topped 200 hotels in 2014.
The Westin Fort Lauderdale's new guest rooms are designed as a modern-day oasis from the demands of travel with a soothing color palette and natural design touches. Key aspects of well-being are crafted into a modern, uncluttered and timeless design, allowing guests to feel comforted, energized and at home while on the road. Debuting new carpeting and wallpaper folded into residentially inspired layouts with harmonious proportions and expected attention to detail, the new space creating guest connection.
“The design is inspired by liquid and reflective of natural elements, defined by luminous forms and finishes that conjure patterns created by movement of light,” says Chris Alto, general manager Westin Fort Lauderdale. “Every element is designed to energize our guests by bringing a natural element into the space.” An asymmetrical entrance wall and angled bed create a meandering path through the space that reflects the experience of moving through nature. The layout simultaneously offers refuge and prospect through sheltered spaces and open views. Adaptive furniture and a flexible desk give guests the agility to work, play and relax.
All guestrooms feature the Westin Heavenly® Bed, uniquely designed with a plush, pillow-top construction for premium comfort and support. In the hotel's renovated bathrooms, guests will enjoy the Heavenly® Bath, enhanced with the brand's Heavenly® Shower, Heavenly® Robe and White Tea Aloe bath amenities. Additional amenities include in-room, high-speed Internet access and 42” flat screen televisions.
Guests of The Westin Fort Lauderdale recharge in the resort atmosphere of the lagoon-side WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio with dry sauna. Complete with an outdoor heated pool and a waterfall-slide whirlpool, the space begs travelers to linger longer.
Westin has recently partnered with New Balance to provide athletic shoes and apparel during guests' stay. By dialing Service Express®, guests may request shoe and clothing sizes to be delivered to the guest room. Shoes come with socks that are brand new and apparel is provided fresh and clean. Upon departure, guests simply leave the items in the carryall in the guestroom.
Presenting Alfiere's Mediterranean Bistro for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Westin Fort Lauderdale guests enjoy fresh pasta, boardwalk dining and an extensive wine list to create a decadent dining experience. For lighter bites and more casual fare, the Lobby Lounge Bistro provides the perfect spot for libations and snacks while Westin Fresh by The Juicery offers variety of juices and smoothies made fresh every day from locally available ingredients.
Presenting a balance of location and ambiance for Fort Lauderdale events, business meetings, executive retreats, conferences and weddings, The Westin Fort Lauderdale offers flexible meeting and event space. With easy access from I-95 and nestled among Headquarters and Regional offices of Fortune 500 companies, The Westin Fort Lauderdale presents great group luncheon and reception options at one of the spacious outdoor terraces overlooking the lagoon.
The North Fort Lauderdale hotel is 14 miles from Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL), 30 minutes from Miami International Airport (MIA) and 45 minutes from West Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA). Corporate jet centers including Aero, Banyan, Executive Jet, Net Jets and Sano, are all four miles from the hotel. For those guests traveling for a pre- or post- cruise vacation, The Westin Fort Lauderdale is located five miles away from Port Everglades.

Westin Hotels & Resorts, like all brands within Starwood's robust portfolio, is proud to offer the Starwood Preferred Guest® program, which made headlines when it launched in 1999 with a breakthrough policy of no blackout dates on Free Night Awards. SPG® offers members the ability to redeem awards at more resorts, more luxury properties, more European hotels and more golf properties than any other hotel program.
