It is across the street from the beach. The rooms have beautiful views of the ocean. The hotel is very well kept. The staff was very nice. Primanti Brothers around the corner is a great place for a very affordable and good breakfast. We will likely go again for a relaxing and peaceful trip.

We stayed for a long weekend and it was Just OK. Hotel is very conveniently located across the road from the beach, has stunning view from the window, But rooms are bare minimalistic: no coffee maker, no ice buckets, no enlarging mirrors for make up, you will not find shoe polish sponge. There are no business lounge with a single... More

This hotel has a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. The lobby was very clean and gave the feeling of being inside a sea shell. The aroma in the lobby should be bottled and sold as an expensive perfume. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the employees were very kind and helpful and I really enjoyed the pool side bartender who... More

We stay in Ft. Lauderdale every January for a chartered jazz cruise. This year the Sonesta had blocked rooms for the charter cruise guests. We asked on arrival about a shuttle to the cruise port and we were told they knew nothing about a reserved shuttle service but could put us on a list for pick up by an outside... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Sonesta before departing on a cruise to the Caribbean Islands. Friendly staff greeted us when we arrived and without delay we were shown to a very nice bedroom on a high floor facing towards Fort Lauderdale beach.
