Another good stay at Sonesta. Got the ocean view room. Everything was good as always. Breakfast buffet (especially the breakfast potatoes ) yummy! Friendly staff and clean room. Beach is across the road. Galleria is 10 mins walk from the hotel!

Great service, brand new hotel, feels like you are in heaven, everything smells good like in a SPA and very clean. Valet great guy especially Douglass Cohen who provided 5 star service. View spectacular from 9th floor looking over the ocean. Will certainly go back.

Stayed here for a business trip. Hotel is not walking distance to any of the local restaurants/activities. And to be honest at night I would not recommend venturing out alone. They don't offer any sort of shuttling so unless you have a car or want to pay for a cab your pretty much stuck. Other than that I thought the... More

Dear Cubs_Fan007, thank you for your detailed review. We do have quite a few restaurants within walking distance on the way to and inside the Galleria Mall as well as a Water Taxi stop in the same direction. I apologize for times when it may have been a bit noisy, sometimes other guests are loud and unfortunately that may affect... More

Good overall, clean, very helpful staff, but the pool is small, and the price of Parking is outrageous!! 30$ for 24 hours, it's very expensive specially if you stay for a couple of days! I paid 35 $ in New York while staying in Omni because there is no place in the city!

Originally I booked myself for two nights, but after seeing the location I had to extend my stay. I took a photo of the view from the room and sent it to my family back home because it was like a scene out of a movie. Great location to go to the beach, easy access to get to downtown, and... More

It was a pleasant stay. We got a very good deal on Hotwire. The easiest way to commute from FLL airport is to take taxi. The city unlike Miami doesn't seem to have Uber. Check in was perfect, special thanks to Aydee! Room was really spacious clean, comfortable and well insulated. All the rooms have at least partial ocean view.... More

Clean modern rooms with stunning views. Great location for beach and local bars n shops. Would Defo stay here again next year. Go for the preferred rooms for the full length windows for that stunning view. My morning view to wake up to was the best.

It is a decent hotel. A higher end hotel than some I have stayed at. However, be prepared for extra cost. Required valet parking is an extra $30 a night. Even though you can come and go as you please, the sticker shock caught me by surprise. Further it was loud near my room. It seemed to be alot of... More
