(We had two separate reservations for two rooms). After contacting first the reservation number I called the hotel direct and spoke with Gita. It took a while but she were... More

This is a great location for a conference. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff is very accommodating and the food is good. Although the rooms don't have coffee/tea makers, there is easy (walking distance) access to cafe's and other stores. The views from the room are unbeatable. The penthouse is a great space for business conferences. There... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sonesta from Nov 2nd-6th and had a wonderful time.

I was a little worried that we would hear... More

Perfect location for beach and walking access to Galleria with good restaurants and to the water taxi to explore the inland waters. Clean, efficient, nice pool area and bar. Valet parking only, but the guys who handle the parking are really excellent. Only problems were there is no armchair or comfortable chair in the room, nor is there a coffee... More

Hotel was beautiful, view was breathtaking, and the staff was friendly. Went for a weekend and we were pleased with the outcome. They had an event upstairs and we didn't hear very much of it.
