My daughter and I stayed here earlier this year for a winter getaway. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are immaculate, the view of the ocean is spectacular, and the staff is very polite and attentive. I'm hoping to wake up early enough to see the sunrise on the beach this time! And I have to say, the beds are... More

Nice and clean hotel with helpfull staff unfortunately there was a lot of noise from other rooms + screeming and very loud kids and adults at the pool area. The supervisor wasn't helpfull at all with this problem even though guests were leaving the area because of one familys behavior. I do not recomend this hotel if you want quiet... More

Had a solo 2 night mini vaca in between business trips. The rooms were average size and clean, the staff very polite... I absolutely loved the shower! I know that sounds crazy but I travel a lot and hate the showers with curtains which are usually gross no matter how clean they look. Sonesta had a very modern curtain free... More

Dear 9LoveToTravel, thanks for your review and glad to hear you love our shower. If you didn't have a chance to do so, I strongly recommend the Galleria mall, which is less than 10 minutes away (walking distance). It is by far the largest mall near the beach and also offers great bars and restaurants. Also, the neigborhood is very... More

I had the opportunity to spend several nights at this hotel back in 1982 during Spring Break when the property was a Holiday Inn. Today after 33 years the property has now been transformed into a laid-back sophisticated modern hotel with an international flair. The property was very clean and pristine. I recommend upgrading to the Junior Suite. The staff... More

We were put in a handicap room (which was not needed), but it turned out to be the best room! A very large room and a very large bathroom and shower! The rooms have the best ocean view you´ll ever see. Such a nice view to wake up to. The rooms had a fridge which we appreciated. The staff was... More

I wanted a nice, relaxing birthday celebration at the beach. Sonesta Fort Lauderdale delivered! My Premier King Ocean View room was beautiful, with an incredible view. The staff was warm and friendly. All I had to do with step across the street to the beach. Each night the hotel provided treats for guests - including an ice cream social, full-size... More
