Nice, clean hotel right across the street from the beach. Looks fancy but nothing about it is worth the money. Rooms have showers only to encourage use of the spa suite. Noticing they had a spa listed, I called ahead specifically to ask if the spa had a steam room, the answer was yes, so I booked it. When I... More

At first blush the hotel looks and feels wonderful. A spectacular view from my picture window. The decor was very south Florida...modern , white with pastel accents. The work out facility was teeny. The touted high speed internet was extremely slow. The walls were very thin and the party going on next door kept me up for hours. Plus the... More

Very nicely remodeled boutique hotel. The pool is very small and there is no view of the ocean. It is inside of a courtyard. The hotel was very clean and really close to lots of nice bars and restaurants (walking distance, easily).

This is my fourth stay at this hotel. We keep coming back because we loved it when it was the B Ocean. Now the property is taken over by the Sonesta. The rooms and the staff are still excellent. The facilities and services have gone down a couple of notches. The rooms don't have coffee maker and complimentary coffee is... More

It is across the street from the beach. The rooms have beautiful views of the ocean. The hotel is very well kept. The staff was very nice. Primanti Brothers around the corner is a great place for a very affordable and good breakfast. We will likely go again for a relaxing and peaceful trip.

We stayed for a long weekend and it was Just OK. Hotel is very conveniently located across the road from the beach, has stunning view from the window, But rooms are bare minimalistic: no coffee maker, no ice buckets, no enlarging mirrors for make up, you will not find shoe polish sponge. There are no business lounge with a single... More

This hotel has a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. The lobby was very clean and gave the feeling of being inside a sea shell. The aroma in the lobby should be bottled and sold as an expensive perfume. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the employees were very kind and helpful and I really enjoyed the pool side bartender who... More

We stay in Ft. Lauderdale every January for a chartered jazz cruise. This year the Sonesta had blocked rooms for the charter cruise guests. We asked on arrival about a shuttle to the cruise port and we were told they knew nothing about a reserved shuttle service but could put us on a list for pick up by an outside... More

Dear Shotlady27, thank you for sharing your comments. I am very surprised by the note regarding transportation information for your cruise. As per the recent post on this site, our team did provide all the information that was given to us by the cruise company. I am glad you agree that the ocean views from our rooms are awesome. More
