I booked three nights at the Sonesta for a long weekend away with my boyfriend. When we arrived, the hotel let us know that there were no rooms available except for one on the second floor, so we opted to wait until later to get a room on a better floor. We had reserved an Ocean Curve King room, so I was expecting a room with a view. When we checked back in a few hours later, they put us on the fourth floor overlooking the parking lot. The biggest disappointment was that the hotel was being pain... Read more

Really clean and modern hotel. The rooms and lobby are decorated nicely, with water for the guests to consume all day/night long.I would definitely go back. The hotel is right across the street from the beach and is a short 15 min walk from famous restaurants and large shopping malls. The hotel was only a $30 cab ride from the Fort Lauderdale airport, I do not find it necessary to rent a car if you stay here.

He even went as far as helping me change my tire when it went flat outside of the hotel! There were also a few others who were extremely helpful, Ryan and O'Neish also assisted in putting air in my tire the night after the second tire decided to go flat on the rental so that we could make it safely back to the airport!

hotel was very nice they have water w/lemon and cucumber for their guests, small restaurant and 2 bars, the pool was great the staff/bartenders were great, we got moved to a higher floor and the view was awesome, rooms are small but we just used them to sleep, right across from beach and near pizza place and subway. down fall is they charge you and extra 30.00 a day to park on top of the room price.

This hotel has the most breathtaking view of the sunrise that I have ever seen from any of the hotels I have ever stayed at! It is beautiful, clean, and so modern! It is also close to all of the action, and literally steps from the beach! The pool is opened 24 hours a day, something I find rare at other hotels. Great staff too!

I went for a quick vacation with my infant and hubby. They provided with a crib. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We had the 5th floor beautiful view of the beach. Down side of the hotel: the pool is very small for such a big hotel. The location was convinient. We asked for late checkout but the housekeeping kept knocking on the door asking a what time we were leaving after it was arranged by the reception, very annoying. Overall it was a good experience.

My daughter and I came to Ft. Lauderdale for a quick girls getaway with our primary goal of nice relaxing beach time. We chose the Sonesta because the hotel looked nice and it was middle of the road in terms of price. We also thought the beach would be less crowded since it is somewhat separated from the other hotels and the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park was right next to the hotel. This worked out perfectly. The beach was busy but not too crowded and we were always able to get a couple beach... Read more

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday at the Sonesta and we were both pleased with our experience. From check in to check out, no stone was left unturned. After finding out it was his birthday, the hotel went above and beyond by sending a bottle of champagne to our room. We were also upgraded to a corner room which had a breathtaking view. Can't wait to go back next summer. Sonesta. thank you!!!

The hotel is what you pay for, a Sonesta hotel. Good breakfast buffet. However they should revise their policy when it comes with families with babies. They don't help you when it comes to usual requirements of families traveling with babies. A microwave is required when you need to sterilize babies bottles. I had terrible arguments regarding this. The parking fee seems to be also very high.

So a very friendly receptionist, Brittany made sure we were taken care of, she was always friendly to us and did her job with no fuss. And had us moved while we were out shopping.She is an asset to that hotel. Also with our room we received a free breakfast that was excellent, our server Cary is so good he needs to be at a very upscale restaurant, he always made sure we were taken care of.... Read more

Stayed at the Sonesta for a long weekend getaway. My objective was to relax and that I did. Sonesta is located at the very end of the main street that borders the Fort Lauderdale Beach. It's away from a lot of the "action" which is exactly what I wanted. The beach is literally right across the street from the hotel and was never crowded. The hotel provides chairs (it's included in the room fee) and you can rent an umbrella for $20. PERFECT. The water was warm and relaxing. Lots of couples and f... Read more

Sonesta is a great hotel. It's close to the beach. Just walk over the street and you're in the ocean. We had a room on the 8 floor and the view was so pretty. The people who work there are super friendly and will do anything to please you. They took care of our trip to the Everglades and also for water taxi. The breakfast is good and plenty.

Great location right on the Beach at Fort Lauderdale. The beach is great and there are some nice little touches like free beach chairs and free drink vouchers. Our room was great with an awesome sea view. One drawback - you will get charged $32 a night to park, which it be fair to my holiday company was on the ticketing info but was a bit of a nasty shock on check-in day. Friendly staff with a helpful attitude. The pool is nice although quite small. Definately a hotel for beach lovers.

A lovely hotel right on the beach at Fort Lauderdale. Although a little bit out of the way, this suited us, being a quiet stay on the beachfront. There is an electric cart driving up and down the esplanade providing transport to restaurants etc. if required. Everything you could require including free wifi is included. Staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful. We had a corner room which provided wonderful views from 2 large windows to the ocean. The room was immaculate. Highly recommended.

We stayed here 7th October 2016. A clean and crisp hotel with fantastic beach views. We had a lovely time here, the bar was great and the free drinks were perfect. The Car Valet staff were more than helpful, giving us tips on where to visit and looking after our vehicle. They were really busy one day with a wedding but that didn't stop them from helping us out trying to find a place to go for the day. 5* service from them. Special mention to Johnathan, Chadwick for just being awesome and making ... Read more

I just stayed here at this hotel and I was not told there would be a $20 daily charge everyday. I had to also pay $32 a day to valet park bc they do not have any parking here. I was not happy about an extra $160.00 fee that I had to pay in addition to my $600 fees for the room. The hotel room is also NOT an ocean front room. The pictures on the website are very misleading. I thought I would be getting a beautiful ocean view and I woke up looking at the streets every morning. The pillows in th... Read more

Enjoyed our recent stay at Sonesta Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Views from our room of the city and beach were amazing! The guest service agent Brittany was exceptional and helped to make our stay even more memorable. Definitely recommend for a weekend getaway.

This is a bright, modern hotel with standard amenities in the lower priced rooms. It's within walking distance to a few beach style restaurants and shops as well as a slightly longer walk to stop #9 on the water taxi route. Fully accessible $20 +tax daily fee for beach umbrella rental, high speed WiFi,2 bottles of water etc.which I think is standard. Helpful front desk. Only issue the foyer decor includes a wave pattern wall that is highlighted by strobe lighting. It's rather difficult to ... Read more

We stayed for four days. The reception was very welcoming and nice. Our room was big and clean (btw they really have rooms for 4 adults!) The breakfast buffet was much better than expected (and I am used to eat European/continental buffet). There is nothing negative to say about Sonesta - I can stay again and I can recommend! Special Thanks to Reception, Bar and Parking people - you are professionals!

My girlfriend and I stayed here on October 22nd as a stop over after our cruise and we had a very nice time in Ft. Lauderdale We liked the proximity to the beach and the free chair rentals. The hotel is also very close to Bonnet house which was a beautiful place to spend the morning until our room was ready. The breakfast and pizza at Primanti bros down the street was also very good. I wish I had remembered her name but the woman at check in was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I only have a... Read more

Stayed on the 8th floor in a room facing the beach. Very clean and spacious room with a king-sized bed. It is really close to the Galleria Mall and a few nice restaurants/bars (Trulucks, Blue Martini, etc.). It is also conveniently located to the strip of bars/stores/restaurants that are right on the beach. Valet parking is an additional $32/day and they were quick for the most part. I would recommend.

This Hotel and their staff are fantastic. From bartenders to front desk we were greeted by our names and every small request taken care of with a smile. Brittany at the front desk will be running a hotel one day. Hopefully this one. She is all about the customer experience. She spent an hour on the phone tracking down my Wife's phone she left in a cab. She told us to go outside and enjoy the day while she sat on the phone for a full hour. Few hotel staff would go out of their way like that. We... Read more

The hotel was very clean and modern. They have a computer in the lobby that could pull up local attractions, maps, restaurants, etc that was extremely helpful as we didn't plan any events when we booked the trip. The breakfast buffet was a little expensive for what was offered - $18/person with bacon, eggs, potatoes, fruit, muffins, and cereal. The staff was extremely polite with the exception of a couple people. Pool area is in-closed so it had good protection from the windy days but it's on th... Read more

I have two reasons for a poor review. I will start with the one that will affect more people: 1. This hotel has NO noise proofing. I could hear everything from the hallway, the room next door (all conversations and the crying child), AND from the street. Apparently in Fort Lauderdale the car owners and motorcycle owners like to rev their engines and make their cars loud and obnoxious and I was woken up many times in the night hearing some car revving up. I was very surprised by the lack of... Read more

First time staying in this area. A bit removed from the action of Ft. Lauderdale Beach but wasn't isolated and the walk to the action, if that's what you are looking for, is not bad. There are some good options very closely nearby however. Gorgeous ocean view from the room but missed having a balcony. Also, there is no ocean view - or any view at all for that matter - from the pool. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great as well. Very courteous, helpful staff, from recepti...

I booked my reservation over the phone as I was driving to the wedding rehearsal dinner the night before when I would be staying.

Nice clean room with a beautiful view of the ocean, but that's where my compliments stop. Most of the front desk personnel were haughty and not very helpful. While the valet personnel were pleasant, there always seemed to be a problem getting our car. We called the first time and got the front desk who told us they would contact the valet for us. After about 5 min in our room, we waited an additional 5 min outside before inquiring about our vehicle. The valet had not been contacted. The ne... Read more

I enjoyed my stay and would definitely give it 3.5 stars if halves were allowed. I just didn't feel like it was a four-star experience. It is nice, fairly modern and clean hotel. The first thing you notice when you enter the room is the view. Our room had a huge picture window with an expansive view of the ocean and greenery. The second thing you notice is that you can't open the windows and there are no balconies (I thought these were fairly common in resort areas, but I foolishly forgot to d... Read more
