Have been to many hotels on business trip and this one is definitely the worst one. Frankly speaking, the hotel facility is not bad, but people here are the rudest and worst I have ever seen. When I checked in the hotel, I asked to change to higher floor to have a quitter room and better view but the front... More

The room was excellent, the bed superb and the view simply marvelous. The price was also very good since they had a special. However, they did not advertise that if you bring a car, you are charged with a $30 valet charge each day since there simply is no way for you to park car close to hotel. However, the... More

We booked 4 rooms for 2 nights prior to our cruise last April at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale. We are very pleased with our stay. The beach is right across the street. The hotel is clean. The most important part is the staff. Very nice and accommodating people that do the best to serve you. The location is very good... More

The property sits nicely across the street from the beach. This is typical with other hotels in the area. The staff was excellent to deal with and very accommodating. The hotel is clean. I used points for the room. If I go back to Ft Lauderdale and pay for a room, I would probably stay at the Hilton down the... More

Located at the very end of Sunrise Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, directly on the Atlantic. This hotel is adequate, but could use a bit of "sprucing up". The beach is directly across A1A, but almost all of the Ft. Lauderdale beach properties are this way. The Sonesta is surrounded by Hugh Taylor Birch Park on the left and the Bonnet... More

Absolutely perfect! Rooms, location, service, food! PERFECT! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in ft Lauderdale. No problem with check in, they had our room ready early.Very satisfied! The view was breathtaking. Restaurants around hotel was reasonable, food fantastic and people were very friendly.Even elevators were fast.I really tried to find something wrong and couldn't. I didn't want to leave.

The hotel is right across from the beach which is very clean and not crowded.The hotel is also only a short walk away from several nice restaurants. The hotel staff is friendly and very helpful. The hotel has a very nice indoor bar as well as an outdoor bar by the pool.

Hotel had a great view, staff was nice, however it lacks a lot to be a 4 star hotel, how can they forget to add toilet paper? Valet is overpriced and pool is very small. The floor in the room weren't as clean you would expect, food at Bistro is nothing to brag. Also, the outside location needs major improvements.

Good points: Clean fresh room cleaned daily. Decent views if on high floor. Receptionists lovely. Bed is amazing. Good air con. Nice pool and area although a bit small. Bad points: Although they have soundproofed from the outside they haven't done so between the door and corridor. No coffee/tea in room unless you order room service. Drinks and food really... More

We had a perfect experience at the Sonesta. Our room was amazing with phenomenal views of the Atlantic. Everything was updated and beautiful; clean and comfortable. Each and everyone of the staff with whom we interacted were so pleasant and helpful. Wish we were staying longer! The only downfall (and it was minor) was that it has valet parking only.... More
