-Location is a hop away from the beach
-15 min walk to Galleria mall (nice shops and restaurants)
...that's about it.
-The #1 negative for me was the bed/linen set up. It does not seem sanitary that the duvet (which I'm sure are not washed between stays) was loosely covered by 2 sheets, one on top and one on bottom. The sheet under the duvet did not reach the bottom of the bed so duvet was directly on you. For a 4-star hotel, they should DEFINITELY invest in zipper duvet covers that are washed between uses.
-Housekeeping: they did not show up until 4 or 5pm some days, right when most people get back from their day and want to shower and get ready for the evening. I did not have the room serviced some days because I needed the bathroom and they came at such an inconvenient time.
-The room generally felt "sticky" ...the white desk chair and drawers had black all over and the bathroom just did not feel clean...in particular the shower.
-Pool is small and chairs are not very comfortable
-No robes or mini-fridge in the room (fridge available only upon request) which I would expect at a hotel of this class.
-Location is a bit more removed from more of the "action" of the beach strip.
All in all I think this will be my last visit to the Sonesta.
