I will try to summarize the main pros and cons, and then elaborate on some of them. Stayed there for one week, in June. After reading my review, you will realize you have to add $55 per night to any rate you see... (On top of the resort fee) Pros: It´s right in front of the beach (not ON the... More

We stayed Fri-Sun, thinking the rate was reasonable. Once we realized the parking is $32 per day, and the resort fee is $20, it was not as affordable as we originally thought. But, the rooms are nice, the beds very comfortable, and having 2 beach chairs included in the cost was a nice bonus. The beach is across the street,... More

I would like to share my thought for great week at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale. The hotel customer service is fantastic. From the front desk, restaurant, cleaning staff, our whole experience was great. The view and proximity of the beach is fantastic. The hotel is in a calm section of the Fort Lauderdale Blvd and this is what I like.... More

Lobby, rooms and amenities very nice. Bottled water, coffee/tea, refrigerator and safe are thoughtful touched. View from room amazing. Convenient location. Bar, restaurant and shopping within walking distance. Hotel food was average and overpriced.

After a terrible travel experience, I got to the hotel at 5:00 a.m. and (expectedly for that hour) it took a while for a bellman to get my luggage and take my car but check-in was a breeze and the room, well, just about perfect. I need an accessible room and often they are tucked in a corner but this... More
