·Winner: We're going with the W South Beach because A) it's newer and the entire trainwreck cast of Miami Social from Bravo TV hasn't sullied up the place and B) that ocean view is guaranteed. On the other hand, the Gansevoort South does have those killer views from the rooftop and a functioning spa, salon and fitness center. W South Beach's Bliss Spa won't open until December.
As far as dining goes, W South Beach just opened their new Mr. Chow restaurant the other day which is directly competing (in more ways than one) with the G'voort's Philippe Chow restaurant. But like we'd have enough money left over for the spa and dining with those room rates? We'll stick with the W South Beach. Every dollar counts.
If you had your choice, which hotel would you pick--Gansevoort South or W South Beach? Let us know in comments below.
