The hotel is half a block from Coco Walk, where there are a lot of little shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is very modern and touts a small art collection. Across the street from the hotel, there is a neat little park and walking path around the bay that is a great option to a morning workout in the hotel gym.
I stayed in a standard king bed room recently and found the room to be decent size, but very low on the natural light scale. There was only a small balcony with a standard size glass door that allowed only a small amount of light into the room. However, the room faced the bay and the view was outstanding.
Bathroom was decent and for some reason there was a large, deep cabinet in the bathroom. It didn't have anything in it, but it was large. Shower was normal, and the towels were large and soft.
The bed was very comfortable and had just the right firm to pillow-top softness ratio, but the pillows... the pillows are what made this hotel for me! Most hotel pillows are way too firm and fat and it's rare that I am able to sleep. But the pillows at the Soneseta were perfect. A mix of firmness was provided with about 6 total pillows to choose from, but my favorite are the soft, downy pillows. I slept better than at most other hotels.
Valet is $23 per day. I stayed for 2 days, but was only charged for 1 day because they don't rollover into the new day until 4 pm. It's cheaper to opt for the valet than the self-park next door, which is $30 a day.
