Scanned Advisor for a highly rated reasonably priced hotel in Fort Lauderdale and found the Sonesta, and are very happy we did. Although a little smaller than some of the other mainstay hotels on the Fort Lauderdale strip, our family loved just about everything. Check in was made easy with the friendly staff, even though they were very busy. Everything felt new with a great vibe.
Rooms were spacious and clean, all with views of the Ocean.
Pool was a bit on the smaller side, but was clean with a good amount of lounge chairs and shade.
Steelpan, the new restaurant (open three weeks) was excellent for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Monica and the Executive Chef very active in the restaurant! Food has a Caribbean twist and was fresh and flavorful.
Walking distance to other hotels and restaurants.
Our only issue was being near the elevator and employee service area where we heard plenty of noise at night. Kept us from getting a good night sleep. Don’t stay near the elevator if you can help it! Our fault for not insisting when we checked in.
We still highly recommend!More
