“Great location, views and creative food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Stayed at the Sonesta Bayfront for a business luncheon. Though the building is compact, the hotel feels spacious inside. The staff is the best feature, look for their "My passion" on name badges to learn what each loves to do best. The food was very creatively presented and was of high quality. Grilled chicken atop a spinach salad with red onions, walnuts, cranberries and goat cheese and a smooth subtle dressing. Refreshing cucumber iced tea. The desserts were like tasty little jewels. Only improvement would be a better business center.

Room Tip: All the rooms have gorgeous views of the bay. Stay on highest floor possible.

A group of six adults, we stayed at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel in Coconut Grove for the Sony-Ericsson Tennis Tournament and had an excellent experience. The hotel is a stop for the buses that ferry spectators back and forth to the tennis tournament and the tournament maintains a desk in the hotel to provide guidance and assistance to those attending the tournament. The hotel is well staffed and all staff members - from those behind the reception desk to the car valet staff - were at all times cheerful, pleasant, responsive and helpful. The hotel also has excellent facilities - including a large and very nice rooftop pool and a very good rooftop breakfast and dining facility. Our one complaint: the flat screen TV sets in the rooms were difficult to operate (easy to ordr a movie, but difficult to get past that to the free TV).

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the bay are quieter than those on lower floors overlooking the Coconut Walk area.

Dear DavidNewYorkCity,

Thank you for your recent stay at our hotel and your feedback. We are pleased you and your friends enjoyed the Sony Ericsson tournament and the shuttle service from the hotel to Key Biscayne. I apologize for the difficulties with the flat panel TV, our maintenance team will be sure to check our systems to make certain they are operating correctly.

We look forward to seeing you at next year’s tournament.

We were a party of four and this was our two night hotel assigned to us through Virgin prior to our Carribean Cruise which we were picking up at Fort Lauderdale. First impressions of the hotel were a bit unsure as we arrived round the back of the building after being dropped at the wrong location by a taxi driver. My partner went round to the front to see if we could get help with our luggage and a few mins later a concierge came round with a luggage trolley to assist us. The front lobby is lovely, very big leather sofas and a great feeling of space and cleanliness.
We were then taken to our rooms after a very easy check in. The rooms themselves were also lovely, very clean, spacious and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay including dressing gowns and room service if required. As it was Valentines Day when we arrived I had pre-booked a table for two for myself and my partner as a surprise. The meal was fab although a bit pricey but it was a special occassion.
We were on the 15th floor and the views were stunning, on the 8th floor where the restaraunt and swimming pool are there were fantastic views over the bay. Coconut Grove is a very desirable area and comes alive at night with all the outside cafe bars and eateries.
In all I would recommend this hotel to anyone as either a base for exploring Miami or just a short stay as we did. If we go back to Miami we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Sonesta Bayfront Hotel again. Photos to follow.

Dear Nettynkev,

Thank you for your comments about your recent stay at our hotel. We are pleased you enjoyed your Valentine’s Day stay with us. Our views from our rooms and our pool deck are incredible. I am pleased you enjoyed your dinner in our restaurant Panorama. Besides the great food, it is also a great place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail while you watch the sun set.
