“Wonderful hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

This was our third stay at the Sonesta Bayside in Coconut Grove. Each time has been great. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Everything is shiny and spotless. The bed is very comfortable and I especially liked the shampoo and conditioner ! We had no problem with noise,even though several hotels nearby were having renovations.
The pool was clean as was the hot tub. There were wheelchair lifts for both pool and hot tub.
I love the location of the Sonesta, lovely views of the Bay and the city. Shops and restaurants are very close and parking is available next door for 1.50 an hour.
Can't wait to return in the fall.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

If you are looking for a fabulous place with great service and amazing views, book your event at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel, Coconut Grove. The catering department is extremely easy to work with and are very helpful. The food is delicious! We had a company event and everything went very well!!! We will definitely be back next year!!

We had a five day seminar at Sonesta. The staff were friendly, helpful, and accomodating. The food was good and we had a great view of the marina. The hotel is located within walking distance to many resturants. Great experience overall. A special thanks to Frank for all your help!

Stayed briefly while in Miami with family.

Pros:
Excellent Lobby, gorgeous views from the restaurant/pool. Above average service. Clean rooms.

Cons:
Bathrooms and room interiors had a faded beige coloring that isn't very attractive.
There's nothing really around the location except some shopping and a marina, but it's only 10 minutes or so away from downtown Miami and 20 min or so from the airport or Miami beach by car.
The free internet is capped at 1998 dial-up speeds.

Room Tip: A higher room is quieter, there was a wedding party on the 8th floor rooftop until late. We were mov...

We stayed for 2 nights and the area is nice with the Marina and some cosy restaurants around in walking distance. The Hotel is nice and we where lucky with the front desk staff, I asked for another room with balcony and we got it, I asked for late check out and we got it. I think you also can rent some rooms as apartments had the feeling some snowbirds moved in for a few month.
I would stay again here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Balcony towards the poolside !

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. Many of our guests come for a short visit but many also stay for extended periods and we are their home away from home since many of our rooms offer kitchens or kitchenettes. We are pleased your enjoyed your time in Coconut Grove and we hope to see you soon.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the sonesta hotel for 3 nights end of November. The hotel is lovely and the staff is very professional and friendly. They did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The room we had was great, it was clean, modern and comfortable. The free wine was a nice touch and a wonderful way to socialize with the other guests and get a chance to talk to the staff. The pool was great and the fact that the staff came with fresh icewater to drink.I will definitely go back to this hotel if I go back to Miami

The Sonesta is an average tourist/business hotel in a great location in the heart of the Coconut Grove area. The room and facilities (including the pool) were fine - good sized bed,reasonable bathroom - decor was a bit drab, but pleasant enough.We didn't eat in the hotel as there are plenty of restaurants nearby. I guess overall it just lacked the wow! factor. Couple of things to watch for - the hotel offers a valet parking service at $25 per night (worth taking as parking nearby is limited ; just remember to factor this in) ; and don't use the phone in the room for international calls (a minimum charge of $15 applies - at these rates cheaper to use the mobile).

Room Tip: A Bay view room is probably worth the extra ; and of course the higher up you are the better the vie...

Thank you for your recent stay at our hotel. We appreciate your comments. As noted if you arrive with a car we offer valet parking services. Like all hotels, telephone rates are set by the outside operator and are different than rates you pay for your home phone. We hope you have an opportunity to travel back to Miami and if so we hope you will come back for another visit.
