You know I just LIVE for a W Hotel! So we started the New Year with a BANG to escape our current vibe and got swept away by the spectacular W Fort Lauderdale. This magnificent beachfront hotel sits at the epicenter of all that's vibrant in the Fort, world-class shopping, award-winning dining and buzzworthy attractions. We soaked in ocean views from our stylish and luxurious hotel room. We mingled at the oceanfront WET East pool, to behold all that is glorious at this influencer favorite.
STYLISH STARTS FOR ABUNDANT LIVING
Champagne (wishes you were here) and caviar dreams! This is a great time of year to decide what areas of your life you want to improve and take serious action toward change. January herald’s a great time for renewal and getting outside of our comfort zones to push ourselves towards achieving everything that we want. Each year I do a strategic plan - both personally and professionally.
Here are a few questions I answer;
Where do I want to go?
Who do I want to meet?
What do I want to learn?
What do I want to create?
How do I want to live?
Who do I want to become?
Doing strategic planning in the beautiful and inspirational surroundings of the W Fort Lauderdale provides the atmosphere for quiet introspection that allows me to answer such serious questions. Where do you prefer to do your goal setting?
SUN, FUN, AND A NEW YEAR HAS BEGUN
LIVE IT UP! - New Year's Eve Bash. For a stellar start to 2019, we headed to the W Fort Lauderdale for an exquisite dinner buffet curated by chef Stephen Starr, free cocktails, a balloon drop and, of course, a Champagne toast at midnight. The dancing began at 8 p.m. and went all night. Fireworks started at midnight and could be seen in every direction. We scootered around the Fort celebrating with locals anticipating all the great things yet to come in the new year!
ONSITE AND OUT OF SIght
Traveling can be exhausting. Having room service and restaurants 12 floors below is important. We were able to enjoy the impeccable service of every W Fort Lauderdale dining establishment.
James Beard Award Winner Stephen Starr offers a unique interpretation of a classic steakhouse at beach side Steak 954, serving dry-aged meats, delectable sides and an innovative cocktail menu. Don’t forget the gram with that glowing 15-foot jellyfish aquarium.
Our traditional New Year’s meal is significant of the abundance of the year to come. For some people, collards and black eyed peas are the superstitious meal of choice. For us, it’s lobster and champagne. We have become maniacal about our bubbles and crustaceans over the years.. I highly recommend it!
El Vez brings a vibrant setting, regional Mexican fare, and stellar service. In addition to the delicious fare, the restaurant will offer a vast tequila selection and outstanding signature cocktails including a variety of margaritas available by the glass or pitcher.
Always a welcome option. From breakfast and morning coffee to pizza and champagne at lunch, you can count on first class service for in-room dining at the W Fort Lauderdale resort. Lay in bed and enjoy the view - you’ve earned it!
The best part of New Year, New You is that you get to RELAX!
Detox, retox and repeat at the new AWAY Spa. A new bold and vibrant spa experience. Located on the fourth floor of the beach front hotel, each spa experience begins with a complimentary Bright Elixir shot upon arrival made of healthy ingredients to cleanse and energize. After our New Year’s shenanigans, it was just what the doctor ordered!
ROOM TO UNWIND
Our last minute booking provided us with a King Bed, Partial Ocean View, Corner, Mega Guest Room. I’m a planner by nature and our original reservations in Seaside were disrupted by a week of rainy weather. I cannot tell you how happy we were to be able to spend New Years at the W Fort Lauderdale. Call it Serendipity… this is one of my absolute favorite places to be!
