Some places justify the price you pay being an unique experience. Very well localized, it is an amazing hotel to stay in Fort Lauderdale.

Nice spot, facing the ocean and walking distance from the water taxi (a must, $20 all day fare to sight see the wealthy residences and mega yatchs of the rich and famous.
The cocktails are superb, a little high end though.
There is a nice cafe a block over called, "Ocean view" 845 N. Ft lauderdale blvd, the ideal spot for breakfast, taking in ocen view and the and planning your day. Enjoy....

Room Tip: Not much of a difference between the Queen size v. double bed. Except for $15 difference/day

B Ocean is a wonderful hotel in a great location, very hip and modern. I opened the door to our room and we both just gasped at the view, huge full length windows floor to ceiling looking right at the beach, the maid followed up thinking there was something wrong, had to laugh, "this will work just fine"
All the rooms face the ocean, the corner suite offers a better view, our room had the shared door to access the next room, this would be great if we were sharing space with family or friends but sound travels easily through the door so I could hear the neighbors phone ring all morning, Im sure they heard us too :)
The sushi restaurant was fabulous, nice pool and outdoor amenities. They were understaffed at the pool during lunch, our bartender was so wonderful, she really pulled through, we enjoyed her bubbly personality through what was probably a tough day for her.
Thanks B Ocean we wIll return soon for another visit asap.

Room Tip: corner suite for better view or combining rooms.

Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated. Hotel staff was kind and accommodating. We were provided with good recommendations for breakfast since we wanted to go offsite. I like that this hotel is a bit further up the road from the main hustle and bustle of Ocean Blvd. Great access to the beach right across the street.

B Ocean provided my 3 friends and I with a great experience with clean rooms, a beautiful lobby and outdoor pool, and great restaurants. The rooms were very clean and the ocean view was beautiful. Access to beach towels was easy and they had theyre own volleyball net on the beach. We made new friends...the staff! Nicest people. Very friendly and helpful. Tiffany (the hotel manager) and Staci took excellent care of us. Im definitely booking my next tip to Ft lauderdale at the B Ocean!

We stayed here last year during the boat show and thought the glitches were just because the hotel just opened, so we tried it again this year because the location is good.
Sheets were never changed. Room cleaning done mostly at night when you don't want to be disturbed. Needed a late check-out because of late flight and absolutely not even 30 min. grace period. No effort at front desk be helpful in any way. LASONYA, at front desk didn't appreciate the fact we were repeat customers or that we were customers at all. Just very unhelpful and short.

Room Tip: 1220 has great view, but still no changed sheets

BOceanGM, General Manager at Sonesta Fort Lauderdale, responded to this review, November 4, 2011
Dear Mike W,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay. I apologize that your sheets were not changed during your visit. We do change the sheets every three days as part of our Green program unless requested more often. I am also sorry a late checkout was not granted. I am troubled that my team did not make you feel more valued. I will use your feedback as a training opportunity and will address your issues promptly. I would like to point out that this hotel did not open until the end of January and was not opened during the past Boat Show. I hope you choose to try us again and would embrace an opportunity to speak with you personally.

Kindest Regards,

Joel Darr
General Manager
