Pristine white rooms, modern bathroom with a great view of the beach. Small pool, but the water was a perfect temperature. Great neighborhood! Walk across the street to the beach. Next door is open 24 hour pizza (smells better than it tastes - let's just say it's not NY pizza), great ice cream around the block. My wife 9 yr... More

Hotel staff is rude, discourteous and unfriendly. Some stupid security dude guarding the pool and harrassing beachgoers coming and going to the bar, grill and restrooms. This used to be a friendly place, but they are apparently trying to create some fake air of exclusivity. Sorry, unattractive guests and staff, poor amenities, lousy service and atmosphere. They should stop the... More

We found the hotel on booking.com and compared it with the comments on tripadvisor. The hotel is located directly at the beach, separated by the A1A. The area is premium, lots of big yachts, expensive cars etc... We asked for a quiet room and we received a room on the 12th floor. Only the hotels penthouse floor is situated above... More

I stayed with my wife for four nights at the beginning of December. First the positives! The staff we interacted with were all very friendly and helpful. The poolside staff and valet staff stood out. The hotel is right across the street from the beach (you can bring hotel towels to the beach) and there is a small pool area... More

I just arrived home from a 4 night stay at the Sonesta in Ft. Lauderdale. The Staff was very friendly and the location for us, was excellent, you are literally right across the street from the beach, and the view from our suite was amazing, it really makes the room seem a lot bigger, as the huge almost floor to...

We did a 2-week round trip in Florida and the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale had one of the worst price/quality relationships of our hotels. We spent about €260 for 1 night including parking, an average breakfast, and simple in-room dining. We knew that the location is a few miles away from the beach center. okay. The sea view was very nice.... More

This hotel had a nice lobby with a small pretty bar area. We arrived at noon hoping for the early check in as I'd requested along with an ocean viee. We were delighted to receive both with an upgrade to a stunning corner hotel with a six ft long plate glass window facing the ocean and a second window which... More

I have stayed at this property several times pre and post cruise in addition to a corporate function held here. In each visit I have enjoyed the ambiance of the property, the staff has been pleasant and helpful. Rooms are small, but in excellent condition and the location is outstanding. It is not the largest hotel on the "strip" but... More

I only stayed at Sonesta for 1 night but it was a good experience. I guess the rooms were remodelated because they are very modern, confy beds, pillows, and sheets. Plenty closed space....great location with ocean view. I would come back here!

The location couldn't be much better as it's right next to the beach. A few stores, bars and restaurants just a few steps away. If you're up for a ten minute walk you have the Fort Lauderdale Galleria in reach. Really close to the park also, which provided a great view of the annual boat parade. The view from the... More
