Lobby and service was as we've come to expect from the Sonesta's we've stayed in. Room was bright which we totally love. View was nice with a huge window to look out. Plenty of towels and their wonderful smelling bath gel, lotion and shampoos as always provided by Sonesta. Thanks for another great stay!

Bathroom was nice, but cleaning staff did not do a good job with cleaning the shower, Beds were clean but dont look behind the bed under the headboard. Didn't look like it had been vacuumed or cleaned for some time. Staff was welcoming and valet was nice. But I would not stay again.

Found a last minute deal on the last night of my vacation to the Keys and west coast of Florida through Travelzoo and booked the best room, a King Curved Room. Very satisfied with the hotel, room, staff was top notch. Across the street from a beautiful beach. Another great find on TravelZoo. The Sonesta is a gem and I... More

We loved this hotel the first time we stayed last year in August. This year we got a better room. I want to give them a "Excellent" Review but the bathroom was not cleaned very well. I never told anyone until we checked out that was my fault and they gave us free parking. Which was $30.00 way to much... More

Hotel was really nice. Second time I stayed here and even suggested others to stay here this year. Only rating an average based on the fact I am still dealing with the headache of being charged 3 times for my room. Hoping it gets resolved soon.

Dear Jennifer L, thanks for your review and my apologies for the billing issue. As soon as I saw your survey come through (earlier this week), I asked our Controller to research and contact you immediately. I received confirmation from him that everything was resolved and that he communicated this to you last Tuesday. More

I thought it could be better, staff was nice, Santiago at the front desk was very nice. Rooms are small, shower bathroom did not have enough water pressure. Pool area is small and so is the pool. Food was a plus, from the pool bar and breakfast it was delicious Good location, close to everything but for the price I... More

Sonesta is a place to sleep and that's it. There are no real amenities here. The advertised pool is a sorry excuse, crowded with chairs, cluttered with used towels and empty cups everywhere. The pool size is adequate for a single family home. My toddler had to fight with other kids for a space to play on the tiny area... More

Dear lotusveda, i am sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations. We provide a great product and service to our guests (the pool is in fact heated to 84 degrees) but sometimes people's expectations are different from our physical attributes. Our location is extremely convenient, away from the busier section of the beach, which allows for a much... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and found the service to be exceptional, the rooms were so clean and the staff friendly & helpful. This was my second visit & I will be back again! The beach is right outside the hotel and the hotel pool is spotless! Choose this hotel for your Ft. Lauderdale stay. You wont be disappointed!

Overall, this hotel and its staff were very good. We stayed here from 4/13-4/18/15. We loved the proximity to the beach and the pool. The room was nicely organized, beds/pillows super comfy & an amazing ocean view (11th floor) with spectacular sunrises. The few negatives, were the outrageous parking fee $30/day (we don't need valet when we travel) and we... More

Dear Patty W, thanks for your review. The price of valet parking at our hotel is actually lower than most other hotels on the beach. Also, keep in mind that the area you are referring to (down the beach), is much more crowded than the beach in front of the hotel. You have the same services available in front of... More
