"Nice Hotel across the street form the beach"
The Hotel was very nice, the employees were very friendly, the beach was right across the street. The room was comfortable and clean the only negative was our shower drain was slow. The view from our room was fantastic. There were several places within walking distance to eat as well as 2 different places in the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to […] friends.

the best!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it's a beautiful hotel, however the staff wasn't very personable. The pool is tiny but the beach is across the street and the location is amazing plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was very nice and helpful whenever we needed them. They know of great local places to go and will call a cab for you if needed. You can also print out your boarding passes from the front desk if you are flying. The pool area bartender, Anthony is great! He makes the best drinks! In the SAIA restaurant, James is the best waiter there, […] so ask for his area if you go. Bistro was a nice place to eat at too. Breakfast buffet was a tad pricey for my taste, but the food is always good. There are a few bars and restaurants nearby, including an Eagles bar called The Parrot that was a lot of fun. If you need your Starbucks kick, there is one just a few blocks over the bridge. Its actually a nice walk to take in the mornings. Truluck's is a great seafood place to try. Also just a few blocks over the bridge. Proper attire is required, but the food and service is amazing. After dinner make your way next door to the Blue Martini bar. They always have DJ's or live music there. As for the appearance of the hotel, I thought the outside wasn't as appealing as the website photos made it to be. The fitness area is also smaller than I thought. Me and 4 other ladies went for a girls weekend, and overall had a great time. I would recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Lovely location, excellent in house food and drink. Comfy and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful but loud"
Beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous views. The rainfall shower, fluffy beds, modern decor.. so nice. Its a real shame you can hear everything that goes on around you. Our neighbor fell asleep with their TV on and we could hear it all night. We were aware of the valet only situation so we can't really complain about that but we have kids so it was a little […] much having all the guys in and out of my gross car all of the time. I left my swimsuit in the car at one point and would have gladly walked to go get it but the valet insisted on looking for me but of course he couldn't find it in all the kids toys and road trip garbage so he brought the car up for me to look. I almost died of shame, not used to such white glove service but not the hotels fault! Definitely put on your fancy hat if you stay here and give your car a good wipe down.

"Great for the Price!"
This hotel looks very nice online. Although it doesn't live up to the pictures it is a nice hotel and pretty clean. I recommend getting the corner room. They have the best views. Instead of only having one window you get two and one of them floor to ceiling. The pool is pretty small but at least the beach is right across the hotel. Why go to the pool […] when you have the beach!! The beach area near this hotel is further from the more congested area of Ft. Lauderdale beach, which is great if you want to relax. If you want to party your just about a mile away (feels shorter) from the Beach Place Towers where all the action is at! I think the hotel is great because of its affordability and location.

"Would stay again without hesitation"
Hotel is across the street from the beach -- an easy walk. Staff was great, especially Suzette at check-in. Our room was supposedly ready but didn't show to be so in their computer. She took the time to inspect the room herself & ended up putting us in another room because something needed to be fixed in the 1st room. I was much happier to wait 10 minutes […] in the lobby for a room that was "right", rather than go to a room and then have to be switched. Suzette saw to it that I was informed all through the process. Well done! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"We really enjoyed our stay!!"
The hotel was very clean and nice and new looking. The service was really good. The staff were real nice and helpful. Theres no parking lot by the hotel but I think any hotels have that in the area- but theres valet service which was great- they took out car right when we got there and it was always ready when we called them to bring it. There was a […] nice little pool area outdoors. The location was great- right across from the beach. It just bothered me that the whole block behind the hotel looked pretty slimmy to me- low class bars and tatoo shops. But you dont even notice it if you don't go behind the hotel.Overall we really enjoyed the room. We had a ocean curve room-and the view was STUNNING! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beach access was not ideal. Had to cross a busy street. Also the hotel does not supply chairs or umbrellas for the beach. Must bring your own or rent it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, needs self parking option. All the staff were helpful. Beautiful picture frame view of the ocean. Complimentary internet is of adequate speed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay !"
Very nice hotel with great views right across from the beach. Nice modern rooms with extremely comfortable beds . Only down side is the $30 a night parking which would possibly stop me from rebooking .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel with ocean view"
I loved this hotel. It was beautiful. Ultra modern features and bathroom was very nice. Large shower head. I highly recommend this hotel. Everyone was very nice. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that you had to valet park and it was $28.00. I wasn't aware of that. Not sure if it was in the hotel listing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect view from the room"
Close to the beach, state park, water taxi station. A bit far away from boardwalk and nice restaurantsGenuine Expedia guest review
Personal great the only the valet i think is over price the other on that everything it was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"As Close to a Private Resort as you can get!"
We have stayed here 2 years in a row for our wedding anniversary. The rooms are very comfortable and this hotel is a very family friendly place and there are not a lot of young people that are partying and hanging at the bar. The best part about this hotel is that it is right across the street from the beach. It is on a long strip of beach but the awesome […] thing is that the other hotels are not very close so for the most part the people that are on the beach are people that stay at this hotel. There is a buffer on both sides between the Sonesta and the other hotels so it is as close as you can get to being at a private resort. One tip I would tell you is to bring your own beach umbrella if you can. There are a number of stores right on the beach that will rent umbrellas and chairs to you for a price but their products are total crap. We learned our lesson the first year and the second year we brought our own umbrella that we got from Sports Authority and checked it as luggage. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My husband, my 11 year old son and I really enjoyed the hotel. We stayed in the room on the 12th floor, one floor down from the penthouse. The view from the room was astonishing!! When we checked in, the front desk asked if we are okay with the room because it might be noisy from the wedding party in the penthouse that day. We did not hear the noise […] much. Located in the front of ocean, next to the park and some restaurants / ice cream shop. We went to the 7 Eleven near by a lot. We used to live in Ft Lauderdale and this is our first visit since 15 years ago. We really enjoyed our visit, and this hotel made our visit more special!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful view, friendly staff.... we will be back"
We live locally and decided to take a couple day Stay-Vacation on the beach... Sonesta Fort Lauderdale was a great place to get-a-way. The staff was friendly, the corner room had a beautiful view, and the hotel was close everything. We will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel even better ocean views"
We certainly would return. The ocean view king room had amazing views and it was amazing waking up to such a sunrise. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Room was comfortable and a great value. The ASIA sushi restaurant was also a nice stop for us. So then the not so greats were parking- we went with valet ($28 tax )a day and the pool was small […] but still had a nice atmosphere. For the price we paid I enjoyed the hotel enough to share with others our experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Return again and again..."
We have stayed in this hotel at least 8 times but this is the first time Sonesta took it over. It is still a charming friendly and stylish place to stay. We keep on coming back so it must be good !Genuine Expedia guest review
Quick in, quick out trip for me. Hotel was right across from the beach. Didn't use the pool, but it isn't large by any means and should also be cooled during the summer as it felt too warm to be refreshing. Bar staff was great. Bistro food was excellent - great chef. Also close to Galleria Mall and other great restaurants. Nice room, very clean - get […] an ocean view room if you stay here, the view is great to wake up to. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel. Across from the beach"
The carpets of 8th floor were dirty when we checked in, but cleaned later. The hotel is not on the beach. Photos are deceiving. But no hotels there are ON the beach anyway. Valet parking is 28 plus tax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous beach views"
Loved the simplicity of the all white modern décor so your focus is completely on the magnificent ocean views! Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Corner or Preferred rooms with floor to ceiling windows are definitely better than others with regular windows though they all have great views. Saia restaurant Happy Social Hour can't be beat to sample their […] specialties. Delicious food and Alex is great. Small pool but enough lounge chairs. Lucky if you can a free cabana cause the pricey beach rentals across the street are $35 for chair, cushion & umbrella. Buffet breakfast was tasty with a good variety. Had a couple of issues with hotel but management was very accommodating in rectifying the situations. Would definitely stay again since I live only 20 minutes away!

"Great hotel, near the beach with a wonder beach."

"review of the staff"
the lobby, restaurant and valet parking staff were really nice and helpful but the housekeeping ruins everything.In my daughter´s room they came 3 times in half an hour (they want to clean the room NOW, if you say later they stand outside the room give you 10 minutes and nock again ), their supervisor opened the door on my kids without even nocking […] on the door , lucky that my daughter had the door lock on and that was 7 a.m (apparently she wanted to check if the housekeepers clean the room well or not, but obviously she didn´t even know this room was occupied ). as for me, they nocked and opened the door in the same time... A/C very loud wakes you up every 10 minutes as it stops and starts again. never take the room next to elevator, very noisy everyone start running around 6 am.. having said that, the building is really clean, nicely decorated and the windows have a lovely view on the ocean.you just cross the street and you´re on the beach. If i had to go the same area again i would personally not take the same hotel again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the beach"
Wow! We LOVED this hotel. The staff was so nice and helpful. The valet's gave us names of restaurants that had the certain foods we wanted. The restaurants were excellent choices!!! The stay here was so nice and relaxing. We are planning on returning next year for our 30 year anniversary!Genuine Expedia guest review
"No deck to enjoy the location."
This hotel is a great location with an even better view, but you do feel like a fish in an aquarium as there is no deck ...just a really big window that your neighbours can look into. Also the furnishings need a bit of updating. Parking is expensive and valet only ...but the staff sure is pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent super clean great view"
Very please excellent customer service very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
It began when we arrived at the hotel. The valet was very courteous. I wasn't overjoyed at the $28/night fee; however, considering the location, it was a small price to pay. Once we entered the lobby, I was astounded! The decor is very modern and pleasing to the eye. The desk clerk was so friendly. We must have arrived at a busy time because my husband […] had to push the luggage cart to our room. However, when we opened the door, we were once again impressed! Our room was clean, the furnishings were updated, and we had a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean greeting us every morning! The bed was so comfortable, we didn't want to get out of it! The beach is literally across the street! Very convenient! Now, there was one negative. I spent the day and night listening to screaming children run through the hall! So, if you are looking for a romantic getaway, you may want to request a room or floor without any families! This hotel is worth every penny, and we will be returning!

"Nice hotel by the beach"
Checking in was easy and the front desk staff was great. Joe at the pool bar was awesome and very friendly. We had no issues getting extra towels and pillows. The room was a bit tight for 4 people but we were only there to shower and sleep. Overall, we would definitely stay at this hotel again without hesitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel location is good if you rent a car, but the rooms are not very clean. You can spot the dirt and hairs on the floor as well as the showers not being clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

Beautiful hotel with great room views of the beach and ocean. Staff very friendly and accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here on our way to Miami on a cruise. It was a last minute choice. The price was perfect & it was across from the beach. We didn't know what to expect. But when we got there it was amazing. I have stayed in many hotels & this was definitely 4 star. It was right on the beach. All rooms are beach view. The view was breathtaking. You can literally […] walk to the beach in 2 mins. The beach was beautiful. Very clean. The hotel was new & modern. The rooms were extremely clean. The customer service was amazing & very helpful. I asked the front desk clerk to print out my cruise passes & she did it with no issues. They also have a big touch screen device that customers can use to find restaurants, city info & print boarding passes. The pool area was nice & well kept. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. Also the area is lively at night. Many bars & restaurants. It was an amazing experience. I can't wait to visit again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"just short of a very good rating"
First of all, this is a very comfortable hotel, great rooms, easy to get around, clean, great location, etc., and for these items it gets top rating. But, the areas of low ratings are: No gift shop, no coffee pot in rooms, pool is average, but my main problem with the stay is the pillows. They are all the same, so this made for three nights of fighting […] to get some support that I like. Why not have different types to accommodate different demands?

All was great. Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked this hotel when it was still the "B" and was concerned things may have changes since becoming the Sonesta on June 1st, however, from reading other Expedia Members comments it is now better than before. I have to agree. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The concierge and bellman could not do enough for you. Anything you asked they […] were willing to help or find out if they didn't know. The Asian restaurant was excellent. Try the Lobster Bomb there and the Jalapeno Margaritas at the Pool Bar. Rooms have wonderful views and extremely comfortable beds and bedding. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful oceanfront views!"
Stayed 2 nights at the Sonesta. It's located at the quieter end of the strip which my husband and I preferred. We had a premier corner oceanfront view room. The crisp white decor accented the stunning views. It was breathtaking waking up to the ocean right from bed. If the skies are clear, you'll witness a beautiful sunrise. We received a very fair […] rate for such a nice property during the summer off-season. Would highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
