If the laid back Grove vibe is what you like in Miami, and you have a hard time with colors in your decor, but want a nice, reliable, clean place to stay with a very good service staff, this fits the bill. It's kind of like a person whom you like but don't go out of your way to visit on a regular basis. The friend is very nice, keeps a clean home, but doesn't particularly add much to your life. Certainly there is nothing to DISlike about Sonesta. The views out across the oceanfront are beautiful. The pool on the 8th floor is small, pleasant but really benefits from being high up enough to look out across that same oceanfront. The restaurant by the pool is pretty good though a bit dull (this is late July, so keep that in mind). The staff there, though, was very attentive and nice despite the fact that they are required to wear long sleeve khaki tops with long black pants in the 90 degree + humidity. The manager, though, gets to wear a polo shirt. Hmmm. Do I hear a union rep grumbling?
The thing we noticed first is that everything is white or off-white....the lobby, the tile floors, the walls, the bathroom, the curtains, the hallways. We prefer a little decorative flourish, but then that's a taste thing. White everything suggests "clean" and that's not a bad trait for a hotel, just not special.
