The sun. The surf. The soft, sandy beach-all just steps away from the laid-back sophistication of Sonesta Fort Lauderdale hotel. With sweeping beachside views, unforgettable service and winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-it's clear why we're a preferred destination for Fort Lauderdale hotels. Find stylish, newly renovated accommodations and a haven of relaxation and warmth the moment you arrive. Walk along miles of warm, white sands. Lounge on the sundeck by our newly renovated outdoor pool. Bask in the ocean breeze and dine on delicious cuisine at Steelpan, a Caribbean-American fusion kitchen and bar, serving up a menu influenced by the multicultural island flavors of South Florida. Step outside for shopping, entertainment, food, and art all within reach. Celebrate a wedding or hold a meeting in our new 10,000 square feet of elegant event space with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach is celebrated for its stylish ambiance and professional service, creating a vibrant atmosphere that guests enjoy. Its prime location offers easy beach access and is close to local dining, although some have voiced concerns about night-time noise. While the rooms boast spectacular views and cleanliness, there are remarks about their size and extra fees for services like early check-in. Despite the appreciation for amenities, travelers criticize additional costs, questioning the hotel's overall value, especially with the resort, parking, and service charges.

The staff here is amazing. Everyone from the valet to housekeeping was very pleasant and accommodating. I would especially like to extend my gratitude to Juline at the front desk. Her help and kind disposition with our reservation and throughout the stay was 5-star. Great job everyone and I will be back. A 5-star stay.

Hotel's Favorite
I selected the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel because there are many good reviews. I booked through UVC Lifestyle Collection, which then in turn used Expedia. We were going on a cruise and arriving two days prior to that. Our place had to be more than just a bed and a pillow. It had to be clean, comfortable and in a good area. There were plenty of hotels around that were close to the cruise ships. I found that most of those hotels did not have great reviews and were almost the same price. The moment we arrived, we began to experience a very warm welcome from their most excellent Concierge. Her name is Evelyn. She was the tipping point for us that made our stay absolutely wonderful. Evelyn was always accessible and she gave us some great advice on where to go for the best deal and the best meal. She took good care of us no matter what came up. I can't say enough about Evelyn. She is without a doubt the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel Hero. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was actually made for the handicapped. The bathroom was also large and had a large walk-in shower. There was a fridge, safe, TV, ironing board, iron and a hairdryer. The bed was very comfortable as well. No hills or valleys. The view was spectacular. The ocean, the gardens and the A1A highway out front. We ate once at the Steelpan restaurant located just off of the Lobby area. It was a really good experience. The food was delicious and the service was as best as it could be. They also had some Happy Hour specials that were irresistible. They had a decent-sized bar area and a friendly bartender named Patrick. We did not swim in the heated pool although it looked very inviting. One end of the pool area connects to the bar. There are areas that can be sectioned off for private groups. We did use the beach and lounge chairs provided by the hotel. It was comfortable and well-maintained. I do recommend this hotel. It is very clean and inviting. All of the staff are commendable. I could not find anything to substantiate any complaint that I had read in other reviews.

Sonesta Hotel has been a great stay for us. A clean hotel with very nice rooms and extremely comfortable beds. Juline at the front desk was very helpful. Initially we had a room closer the “side” of the hotel. We looked more at a main road than the ocean. We voiced our displeasure with this to Juline who was able to move us to something MUCH better. This was a quick and easy switch. Steelpan restaurant was exceptional. The food was well worth it for the price, which was also well ranged. Our only issue: Thin Walls. Easy to hear others. However during sleeping hours we found it very easy to pass out. Likely due to the beds made of clouds…

We stayed here 3 nights pre-cruise. Cory at the bar was very welcoming and gave us great tips on places to see in the area. Cory also helped us with great recommendations from the kitchen. The other night bartender smoked an amazing old fashioned! Thank you Juline for helping us at the front desk! Skip breakfast and walk around the corner to the coffee shop for some great outdoor dining.
