Omg this was a great place to stay. I enjoyed myself . The hotel is centrally located to everything. The service staff was great. And I would love to thank suezett ,who works at the front desk. For her outstanding service. If you are ever in need ask for her. While you are staying at this hotel.

I would have gave 5 stars but the pool is small and cold and when you call at the front desk it has to ring like 20 times before someone picks up. Great location and the pizza place next door is good. Also maid service was underpar. They never put away the ironing board in 4 days.

The location to the beach is great! The bus stops are very close. The location to decent restaurants is a 20-25 minute walk, but doable. The staff is extremely helpful, nice and welcoming. I do think that the prices at the restaurant and for the rooms are overpriced. The rooms are small, and a little drab in areas, but very... More

14 day stay. Wonderful location and incredible view. Great staff (Dimitar/James!!). Practical for walking to Galleria, Las Olas, eateries etc. Just over 3 hours in either direction to Key West / Orlando. Not overpopulated with hotels, shops etc., but just enough. Ceiling leakage discovered during our last night......

Great location, immaculate room with comfortable bed, plush pillows and towels, wide screen tv, and yet wider window with perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean. If you're looking for ample hotel grounds and various pools as in a resort, this is not the place, but if you want ready access to a nice beach with clear, warm water and comfortable... More

Now this is what you come to expect from a Ft. Lauderdale beachfront resort. After spending three nights at the Westin, we decided that it wasn't the Westin we came to know and love in the past so we packed up and went down the street to the remodeled Sonesta. Yes, it is an old Holiday Inn but the owners... More

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
