With an ideal location overlooking the golden sands of 7-mile-long Fort Lauderdale Beach, the new Sonesta Fort Lauderdale helps you soak in southern Florida
Pros: Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great.Cons: Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Modern hotel. Great ocean view and location!Pros: This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than
most of the hotels on the strip.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better.
Beds were very comfy.
Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel
dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily
They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs
The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and
The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as
We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block
surrounding the hotel.
There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot,
deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven.
There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small
We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore
a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking.
We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person).
Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out
front), cab, Uber, bike rentals.
The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A.
The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all.
Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again.Cons: The pool was sort of small though.
I would have liked a microwave as well though.
Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
Everything was amazing and clean.Pros: The personal are professional and very polite.
Average view, definitely not worth the pricePros: The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store. Cons: Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
The staff was unfriendly rude, and inconsideratePros: NOTHING.Cons: EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
ExcellentPros: The hotel is state of the art clean and artistic. Hotel staff was superb.
Some great and a few negativesPros: The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great. Cons: Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
Pros: Vera¡y good locationCons: The service specially for the breakfast was very poor
Not worth the price of admission Pros: Did not like the “hidden” resort fee. The room was small, especially the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower way too low.
Pros: Clean, friendly staff Cons: Restaurant was very expensive
beautiful view, nice roomsPros: Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
Pros: Room and view was wonderful! Staff was helpful, and the pool was relaxing. Loved the love music at the pool.Cons: Breakfast at the hotel resturant cost us a pretty penny.
