Very nice hotel and location, across the street from the beach. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Dining room we found a little pricey for the quality of the food. Just a short 10 minute walk to Galleria shopping mall! I would recommend Sonesta hotel.

My stay at the hotel was pretty okay, Patrick the Bartender was awesome..kudos to him for being so cheerful even though it was busy at the Bar. The Valet Guys most of them were very pleasant. They opened my doors each and every time we were there..The front desk staff needs to be a little more pleasant though and welcoming...

While we were a little disappointed with the size of the room, we had the best time at the pool! The bartender at the pool, Joe is so personable, remembers names on the first day, and went out of his way to make our time fun! Our kids had the best time & loved ordering at the bar from him....

Lovely hotel room 805 very comfortable with outstanding views of the ocean. I would have given 5 star except for the bone of contention relating to the resort charge. We were delayed at the airport after chaotic luggage recovery and that took four hours for us to exit the terminal. Result was we arrived at the hotel 1140pm extremely exhausted...

Best aspects were: 1.) the location - near the Birch State Park, the proximity to beach and a public bus stop (#11 serves the Las Olas area), and the relative calm of the surrounding (something we appreciated more once we experienced the scene 2 miles to the south); and 2) the free wines and food served late afternoons were great!...

Our handicap accessible room had terrible carpet stains. It is obvious there is no housekeeping oversight and supervision. Our Room 311 was very uncomfortable to walk on the floor.

The Sonesta is right across from the beach. It's nowhere near the action in Fort Lauderdale -- you will need a car to get to Las Ollas, for example. It's hard to get better views than from the rooms facing the ocean. The rooms themselves are serviceable but nothing particularly special. The beds are hard and not very comfortable. Service...
