We've been here several times. It's our favorite hotel that's not on the beach. You can't get a better location in Ft. Lauderdale. It's in the heart of the haute couture shopping and dining district. It's near a stop for the water taxi that can take you to key areas along the waterway and harbors. There's the original hotel section with comfortable quiet rooms and the newer towers with larger rooms and great views over the city and river. The pool looks over the river and you can watch yachts slip by while sipping cold drinks. The staff is knowledgeable and always helpful. The hotel is always clean. The restaurants are very good, as they have to be considering the awesome restaurants in the immediate vicinity. They have a southwest breakfast wrap that is fantastic. If staying on the beach is not critical, this is the best hotel in Ft. Lauderdale.
Smiles and greetings every time I arrived. I also got a free bottle of cold water at the front desk whenever I asked. The room was perfect and I liked that there was a small state maintained wetlands with boardwalks right across from the hotel.
This Hotel was clean, beautiful, located across the street from a beautiful beach that has no jellyfish!
The only headache was 24hrs meter parking, but it was superceded by Sonesta's modern design, clean rooms and a super friendly staff.
I only stayed here for 4 days and generally only used the hotel for sleeping purposes. The bed was without fault and didn't want to leave it as it was so comfortable. The hotel were very polite, honest, friendly and always willing to assist which was a very big plus in my books.
The only issues that I would slightly mark this place down for firstly the breakfast which was a little too basic and secondly the room cleaning which was a little too late.
The hotel staff are exceptional and the property itself -- location, layout, room design -- is high quality. The only negative was the view from the oceanfront rooms: overlooks the HVAC rooftop units of the pool bar and adjacent buildings. Still, a small blip on an otherwise unblemished screen.
