Sonesta ES Suites Burlington VT

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Due to the fireplace in the room, it smelled a little smoky. Other than that it was a great stay!

Pleasant staff. Pleasant stay. Nice location. Just not extremely clean and room service is very basic.

I cannot conceive of how this hotel has an avg 4.1 rating. It's TERRIBLE. Dirty, uncomfortable, weird layout, and VERY old and tired looking. Stayed here because of the Sonesta name - I guess they must have bought it and haven't refurbished it yet. Do not stay here.

We had a great stay but the rooms and buildings need to be freshened up. Or the price should come down.

The accommodations were great. The location,staff and access to local shops and I-89 were all pluses. I would have liked my pillow to be a bit harder and the couch could be a bit more comfortable.

Great staff!!! The room was cleaned quickly and without inconvenience. Really good breakfast.

The hotel was good for our needs to stay one night in Burlington.

We really enjoyed staying here. Everything was clean and all the staff was very friendly. We needed extra blankets and our need was immediately taken care of. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is a great dependable hotel. We came in after midnight and the staff ready and polite. The room is very comfortable and clean. The pool is immaculate. The only reason it is not a 5 star is the aging of the stairs and some parts of the buildings, but the staff is superb.

Location is quiet and the rooms are not attached to a hallway. Room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was all we could ask for and even though crowded, the cook kept the food coming. The pool was very busy. A time for adults would be nice. Lots of bigger kids jumping into the pool was not fun. Even though the no diving sign is clearly posted the staff does not enforce it. That is my only complaint as we came here specifically to use the pool. The rest of the stay was great and I would come again.

With a family of five including three teenage boys we were looking for a clean room with plenty of space. When searching on the internet this was the only hotel in the area that offered a two bedroom two full bathroom option. It felt like we were in an apartment and not a hotel. It also had a full kitchen with everything you would need as well as a dining area and a living room with a pull out couch. They had a basketball court fitness area and a small indoor pool. Breakfast was included and offered a good variety of breakfast foods. We utilized the room service which was reasonably priced. Overall positive experience. The only negative was we could not watch the Bruins game in our room.

We had a mixed experience at this hotel. The staff were generally courteous and the location (next to I-89 and Route 2) is convenient. On the negative side, we had a wasp infestation in our suite's fireplace upon arrival and the housekeeping staff came early 2 nights (before 9am) and late one other night (after 5pm). The room was not as clean as we expected it to be on check-in. The pull-out couch worked well for our toddler but we had to muscle it around in the room for it to fit next to the TV stand. Overall, we would use this hotel again, but probably would not reccomend to our friends and family.

This hotel was great. Convenient location, friendly staff. The room was large and clean. I would highly recommend.

Staff was friendly,helpful and responsive Great location Breakfast had a great spread Clean; great shower Fitness Ctr.-under repair at the moment

Other then the Van drive this place sucked....There where bad wind drafts. I was told that the wood would be included with the fire place and had to pay for them... We got not TP and we tried calling front desk for over 2 hours when I went up front she was sitting in the back napping.

Big rooms, plenty of space, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was fairly standard, and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are a little outdated, but my biggest complaint is the lack of sound proofing. Maybe I'm a light sleeper, but i could hear lots of walking above me and dogs barking outside. Not bad for the price though...Also very close to about 10 chain restaurants.

I enjoyed my stay. The staff was great. Only problem was that these were outside facing units. Never seen this with a residence inn before. it gives it a bit of a motel feel and when you come in at night it feels weird, but the rooms themselves were quite good and so are the extended stay extras

VERY CLEAN RM,GOOD BREAKFAST,FRIENDLY STAFF

Nice, clean family -oriented. Friendly, helpful staff

The hotel room was very clean and it was convenient to have the full kitchen. We had an issue with the heat not working the first night, but the staff addressed it after we notified them. The location is not walkable to much, unlike other hotels in the Burlington area. It would not be our first choice for another stay, but is a decent fallback.
