Recent guest reviews

Spent three nights. Nice hotel with a very attentive and helpful staff.

Great experience here my second stay... greeted with free drink tickets & room was super clean as well as a great view.

Very nice hotel right across the beach. I recommend this to all who would visit Southeast Florida

Very nice....add ons were a bit troubling...car overnight fee....resort fee... I suppose all establishments must have similar add ons but the hotel should make it a point of informing all of these fees at time of booking... Need to have free music in room availability. We went thru 3 coffee machines in 5 nights.....they did not work. Going to a free or norminaly charged lobby coffee area in the morning would be nice Picky...picky....really nice visit

Overall really enjoyed our stay. The staff was attentive and courteous. Although checkin was listed at 4, we arrived early around 1 due to our flight and they gave us a room right away. The location was great and we loved the beach access with beach chairs included (with resort fee). Location was right next to the state park, we rented bikes and planned to ride through but unfortunately the park’s main loop was closed for repairs. Hotel was also right next to the historic Bonnett House, which we really enjoyed touring. Hotel had great views- would definitely recommend staying here!

Staff was exceptionally friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay there again. The location is right on the beach with spectacular views!

Nice rooms looking at te beach. Also nice pool. Recomended.

We stayed for 6 days and had an end room with view of the north/west. Hallway was noisy w other doors slamming, waking us up during sleep at night. 3 elevators, only 2 worked. Pool small, overloaded w chairs. Location was great. Free golf cart rides up/down strip to Las Olas Blvd or over bridge.

We stayed in a corner unit that had breath taking views of the beach and ocean. Beach chairs were already setup on the beach ready to use. Staff was friendly and accommodating when we asked to check in early and check out late to maximize our beach time :) Only slight negative was the room's HVAC was a little loud. Overall great experience.

I was on a short business trip and needed to get plane tix, car and hotel at the last minute. Orbitz came through with all 3, especially the hotel. Ill be staying there with my wife next month!

Generally, a very good location to explore Fort Lauderdale. Amenities are great and worth the resort fee. The color scheme and the general feel of the place is very hip and trendy. A bit far from the main central beach area, but benefit of that is the quietness. Definitely a great place for people looking for some peaceful R & R, but maybe not so much if you are looking to party. Also great ocean facing rooms! Ask for one on a higher level. I was blown away by the view!

great view of the room as described in photo. There is free and cheap local shuttle that takes you to places, but they are infrequent for our liking - one every 30mins? you can wave and they will stop, its call the sun trolly. Watch for the lock though, the door lock latch does not lock up properly for our room, we can just press hard on the handle and the door would open, we had to pull up on the door latch hard to heard a click sound before verifying it was indeed lock this time. Also hotel does not update the master lock code on the safe...so if you use them...use at your own risk.

Windows don't open. Heard the people next door. Room smelled really needs to be aired out. Pillows smelled

Wonderful view excellent staff room is great the pool is alittle to small but other than that perfect

Every staff member was attentive, accommodating and friendly. Need to give a special thank you to the bartending staff, they're great!

Andie, the bartender at the lobby bar, is awesome. In addition to making a great drink, she is a valuable resource for information on restaurants and things to do in Ft. Lauderdale.

This is a dream come true place. Nicest people I have ever met.

My husband and I went to Sonesta for a quick trip during Thanksgiving to celebrate getting married! The hotel was very accommodating and made us feel special. The pool is clean with a great bar. The staff was efficient and friendly. Our room had an ocean view which was great. Although the beach is across the street we had to walk a couple blocks to get the free lounge chairs Sonesta provides. It's a quick walk though and you can see what other hotels, bars, restaurants, shops are nearby. I would definitely go back and stay at Sonesta.

The staff was very nice and helpful. The beach is right across the street. The only drawback and what stopped me from giving it a 5 is that the floors and walls are thin. The room next to us had a TV on and it sound like it was in our room. My wife and I heard a baby crying in a different room. The baby was not screaming.
