Most of the reviews are pretty accurate. It is a very clean, new hotel. You will find a refrigerator in the room now. The room could use a microwave. The view is exactly shown. Prepare your budget if you have to park your car. The food at any part of the hotel is very good. There is a 24 hour... More

Me and my boyfriend had a 3 night stay at Sonesta and we were not satisfied. The hotel has a good location right by the beach but is far away from everything else. When we checked in we only got our keys, no welcome and not any information was provided. The room had a fantastic view (11th floor), but there... More

This was a great stay! We stayed 2 nights before our cruise and so glad we found it. It's about a mile from the mall (we walked there easily) and very quiet. There was a bachelor AND bachelorette party on Friday night and it did get loud. Nothing to complain to the front desk, they were celebrating but they do... More

Great location, clean, comfortable beds Bad pillows, no gift shop, the internet is free, but it is horrible (they want you to upgrade) I did pay the upgrade and it was no better, no coffee pot in rooms, tiny bathrooms, pricey for what you get Those are the pros and cons. I think with just a little improvement on the... More

The view from the hotel is amazing, especially in rooms with floor-to-ceiling window. However, the room size is average. The service also has nothing special. The location is good for those who want tranquility but a bit far from the central things: to get to Sebastian Beach, you need to walk a bit. The breakfast is very good, a lot... More

Nice lobby, great views, normal-sized rooms. Right across the street from the beach. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider returning if I ever come back to Fort Lauderdale for anything in the future. Nothing better than waking up to see the sun rising over the ocean.

I had a very pleasant stay at Sonesta for girls getaway. Right on the beach and the staff was so pleasant and informative about things to do in the area.
