Opposite beach. Bright and modern inside and out with minimalistic decor. Clean Presentable professional and courteous staff from check in to restaurant. Rooms are a tad small and you'd struggle to sleep 4 if you're all adults, unless you're on the small size as the beds are Double (4 1/2 wide) not Queens.

Dear dafeets, thank you for your comments. I am sorry to see that you weren't pleased with our room and bed size. Both depend on the reservation and availability. However, I am very happy to see that you gave us a perfect score on service! More

I just got back from a stay at the Sonesta and I had a great experience! Their customer service was outstanding. Everyone was so friendly from the valet to the servers in the restaurant. We were greeted in the lobby every time by a "Welcome Back!" with a smile. The valet service was quick and they always had our car... More

I just want to start of by commending the outstanding parking service and how well we were taken care of by O'Neish Simpson. From start to finish he was super accomodating and nice and took great care of our car. He helped make our stay as pleasant and enjoyable as anyone could.

What a great two days at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale! Staff at front desk was very friendly and accommodating. There where a few children present at the pool that choose to jump and splash on others in the pool. It would be helpful to have a person present to encourage the no diving rule in the pool. Rooms are beautiful... More

Fantastic Oceanfront views. Parking is very high should be free considering the somewhat undesirable area. Neighborhood needs cleaning up to make this hotel a more desirable hotel to stay in. Nice touch in hotel offering fruit water. Early Checkin was easy with great customer service.

Check in was easy and very friendly staff. Beautiful room with very nice view. Location is nice if you are looking for something away from the nightlife - which suited us fine. Pool was crowded but we were interested in beach so we did not go to the pool. The hotel was updated and I thought was a good value.... More

This past Monday our business group held our lunch meeting on the top floor overlooking the Atlantic. The space was well set for us and the only thing better than the short ribs, dessert and service was the view ...
