Stayed for 2 nights on the 9th floor with a great view, the room was spacious and had a nice bathroom. The pool ok was rather small, but had a good friendly pool bar. The buffet for $18 was ample, good choice of everything. Look out for a daily event we had a free glass of Rose Proseco served between... More

The hotel is in a great location right across from the beach. People in previous posts complained about the pool area being small so I was expecting a tiny pool, but thought the area was fine and adequate. Room was great, try and ask for one of the corner rooms for a great two window view (they are the 01's)... More

Dear topgun151, thanks for sharing your comments and apologies for the late service. I am disturbed to hear that you had a difficult time booking a spa treatment and will make sure to investigate what transpired. Our front desk team can easily book treatments and confirm appointments, so I'm unsure as to why it was such a difficult process. More

We got a nice Room with awesome view but very rude staff at the valet parking.. The pool area is very small. Very poor and expensive breakfast buffet. 18$ for it and it contained some scrambled eggs/ bacon bread, some fruit and cookies. Cleaning in Room is ok.

This place is a really unique hotel. First off its in a good location. Out the door to the right is a great Pizza Place Pomanti Brothers.

The hotels location is good, with the beach just across the road and the Galleria Mall just down the road. A few bars around the corner but otherwise a little bit off. The rooms are fairly spacious and clean, but they're in need of a renovation. Walls and doors are thin.... so you know what your neighbors are up to... More

We spent one night at the Sonesta Hotel in Fort Lauderdale in January 2015 prior to departing on a Caribbean cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam ship around the East and West Caribbean. We arrived about 1945 and were in room 802, a sea view room but as it was dark we couldn’t see anything until the next morning. The room... More

We had a great time at the Sonesta FLL. It has a fun Tel Aviv-Miami-esque décor. The location is fabulous vis-à-vis the beach and Las Olas. The restaurant and poolside food was yummy. And the poolside playlist was THE BEST! So fun and so diverse! The room was not cleaned one day and the hotel's management handles it reasonably and... More

This was the priciest place we've ever stayed so we anticipated loving it. We were attending a wedding and can report it was one of the most stunning beach view venues ever! Since the wedding was at 3:00 and standard check-in is at 4:00, we called ahead and asked for an early check-in. They wouldn't make any promises and said... More
