    Love it.

    by

    One of the advantages to being a loyal Starwood Preferred Guest is the opportunity to get upgrades when you get there. This time, it was the Governor's Suite, which overlooks the beach and the pool. Absolutely gorgeous view, lavish accommodations, and excellent service.

    There were two knocks on the hotel, but both were still worth keeping the 5 stars... first, the Governor's suite does not have a bathtub which is my wife's favorite thing to do in a hotel. The second, is that the minibar fridge did not get cold enough to cool a soda, and despite a call in, it has not been resolved.

    Overall, this is an excellent hotel and I will be back.

    The Westin is on the beach and lovely

    by

    We stayed in the crowne plaza nearby but this is where the conference was so I spent quite a bit of time in the hotel. I would definitely come back and bring my family for a beach vacation. The grounds are lovely. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

    Unique Quality: Right ON THE BEACH!

    Directions: On Highway 1A right on the beach south west of Ft. Lauderdale

    Living in luxury

    by

    Those of us who are simpler people are in awe when they stay at a place like the Westin. To start, the rooms are fabulous, with the "Heavenly" beds and pillows which will ease you into your sleep. The bathrooms are huge, with separate showers, tubs, and toilet areas. There are balconies so you can take in the ocean air. The cleaning crew does a great job of making the room sparkle.

    Since this is a resort, there are several dining options available (Asian, Italian, and a steakhouse in the main hotel, seafood across the street). There are also a pair of pools and beach access. Everything is done well, the staff is very friendly.

    The one knock I have is the location. You are a mile or two south of the Boardwalk, so if you don't have a car and don't like to walk in the heat of summer, your dining options are limited to the very expensive resort choices.

    In summary, you generally get what you pay for, and you're paying a lot at the Westin.

    Simply Stunning!

    by

    The hotel is beautiful, beds are comfortable, and the pool area is fantastic! I would recommend this hotel -- it's well suited and equipped for conventions and small meetings as well as for a romantic weekend. Wouldn't recommend it for families as the restaurants on site do not cater to the younger crowd or their appetites!

    Heavenly Pool

    by

    I had ot leave to catch a flight at 9:30 in the morning but found time to swim a few laps in the Westin's pool. Since it was early, no one was in the pool but me. So refreshing!

    Unique Quality: The pool overlooked the Atlantic Ocean. The water would overflow over the walls of the pool and then drain via waterfall to a pool below. Kids on floats would have a blast floating through this on blowup Shamu's and innertubes.

    Heavenly Bed, Bath and Beach!

    by

    I was only in Ft. Lauderdale for 24 hours but enjoyed every minute I had in this incredible hotel. Upon arriving I found out the hotel was not full so when I checked in I was able to upgrade my room to partial ocean view. I got a corner room on the 25th floor with a balcony that wrapped all the way around. What luck!

    Directions: Hollywood Beach

    The Westin Diplomat Resort And

    by

    We stayed here in February. 2004, wanting a little weekend getaway and enjoyed it very much. The Diplomat has been completely redone recently and is now a gorgeous hotel right on the beach. The hotel is huge and has a couple of restaurants (the sushi place is pretty good), a Starbucks in the lobby, meeting rooms, a spa, shops and a beautiful pool area. Service was good considering that it is such a large hotel.

    The Diplomat has become a popular place for parties and conventions and Nikki Marina across the street is the place to go on Thursday nights and Satine, the bar/lounge in the hotel, is pretty popular on Fridays.

    The rooms are standard comfortable Westin rooms with the added perk of a large balcony. Get an oceanfront room if possible. You can sit on the balcony and watch the waves and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

    Unique Quality: The view and the Nikki Marina area across the street

    Directions: A1A between Hallandale Beach Blvd and Hollywood Blvd.

Definetly coming back

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed at The Westin Diplomat the weekend of 5/30/03. I booked online through the hotel's web site for $240 a night. The hotel was fabulous. The room was very large, quiet and with modern decor. Everything in the hotel and room appear to be brand new. The service was great. Room service was quick and excellent. The hotel restaurant, Hollywood Prime Steakhouse was equally first class. I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel and my stay. Definetly coming back to the Diplomat.

not for those on a budget

by A TripAdvisor Member

We put together a un-scheduled trip to Florida after seeing some great airfares published by Trans-Meridian Airlines out of Syracuse and decided to splurge at the Westin Diplomat. What a great hotel! Awesome pool, great ocean access, great food, and they charge you for all of it! Word to the wise, traveling on a budget? keep on going, this place will zap your wallet but provides 1st class service doing so. Best darn Pina Colada I ever had, $11.00. I'll have a Grey Goose martini please, $14.00 You get the picture. Rooms are nice with great views (free) and rent a pool side cabana if you can, pricey, but worth it. We would stay here again, although east coast of Florida is not our cup of tea.

Awsome rooms... Great service!

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Diplomat was a great hotel, I have been in many hotels around the US and nothing can be compared with the decor, luxury and service of this one. Great experience that will never forget.

Beautiful

by TripAdvisor Member Druxys

The hotel is breathtaking - the lobby entrance is grand and spectacular. The pool area is spacious with an upper infinity pool and lower lagoon-style pool area. There isn't a beach to speak of - there's a breakwall and although you are able to swim in the ocean it is difficult to try to walk along the beach. You need to walk about 1 mile north on Ocean Drive to access the beach and then another mile north of that you'll reach the boardwalk. So, don't pick this resort if you imagine long walks along the beach...you'll be disappointed. It's an extremely expensive hotel. Turkey sandwich & iced tea was $25US from room service. A vodka/orange in the bar was $11US. Be prepared to spend! My room was nice with a large balcony but no furniture on it so it was a bit useless. The room could have been cleaner but was OK. The staff are friendly and helpful. You should have a car if you wish to get around...the hotel is in the middle of condo row so not a lot to do within walking distance.

Luxurious and relaxing - delightful experience

by A TripAdvisor Member

We've stayed at this resort twice and in the process of booking our third stay. Though we experienced some minor problems, the hotel staff was professional and expert in addressing our concerns. On our first stay when our shower had a leak, it was fixed sometime during the day while we were out. When we told the front desk that we didn't know there was a charge for tennis, they immediately removed it from our bill.When our bellman saw that our room was not made up upon our entering, he promptly got us an upgraded room at no extra charge. Though there might be some glitches, the staff is anxious to see that any problems are adequately attended to.Meals in general are pricey, but very good quality and enjoyable. Not for everybody's budget but a worthwhile experience.

So Beautiful

by A TripAdvisor Member

This Westin is incredible. I was immediately impressed with the room and we had one of the cheaper rooms. The bathrooms are marble with a separate 2 headed shower and a deep tub. The heavenly bed was so comfortable and plush. We had a great view of the golf course. The lobby area is also beautiful with fountains and lights. The pool was amazing and the ocean waves broke on the side of the hotel property!!
So don't come here expecting a dive in the ocean but come here to feel pampered and relax. The restaurant is pricey and not very good & the location of the hotel is a good distance to any good restaurants as far as we could see but there was always taxi's right outside waiting to take you wherever you wanted to go. Come here at least once just to be there and enjoy.

Westin Diplomat

by maya01

Thinking of staying at this hotel beginning of February and have a few questions. Heard there is constuction in progress next to the hotel - is it disturbing at the pool or in the rooms? Has the beach been washed away by the hurricanes? Is February a busy time to visit? Is the grand deluxe room worth paying the extra for? Thanks for your help :)

Just a suggestion, why don't you direct to the horses mouth and call Westin's toll free 800 number, better yet, why don't you just call the hotel.

RE: Westin Diplomat

by nicolaitan

stayed there last April. Zero beach. This is an extremely busy hectic hotel with lots of large conventions. The lobby is a madhouse. However the rooms, even standard, are quite nice. We were there for a weekend wedding and did not eat in any of the hotel restaurants. Some of our friends made a real vacation out of it and said the hotel restaurants were not so good. As an alternative, they are the Westin Country Club hotel less than a mile away, seated on a lovely golf course. The people who stayed here for the wedding were much happier. Just a thought. there is not that much in the immediate neighborhood.
