Sonesta Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Recently renovated, the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale oozes style and sophistication. One of the many great things about the hotel is its location — set along seven miles of Fort Lauderdale’s coastline, it is walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes and nightlife, and just minutes from the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District and Las Olas Boulevard. It's also easy to jump on a trolley bus so you can explore more of the area. Modern and comfortable guest rooms have luxurious bedding and designer furnishings making for a bright and airy feel yet perfect for that all-important good night's sleep. If you enjoy great food in a contemporary setting, you'll love the Bistro, a casual beachfront restaurant and the ideal spot for breakfast before your relaxing day on the beach.

Sonensta was great -- convenient beach access and a great pool. Superb service, especially from Sam by the pool. Will return! Great option if traveling as a couple or family. Accommodated us with a complimentary late check-out too.

The food at Steelpan was delicious, I loved the Caribbean tie. The beverages were delicious, shout to Joe at the bar! The rooms were clean and sleek. The resort fees covered welcome drinks, bottled water, beach towels and little special things like tastings or yoga everyday. It was really nice. Read less

The location of the hotel was very close to the tournament site where my son was participating. We had lots of time enjoying the beach and the nearby entertainment district after the tennis matches were done for the day. I will definitely stay here every time we come to Fort Lauderdale.

We stayed at The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale last year on our way to Key West and we loved it so much we came back this summer. We have been on a large vacay already this summer to the Virgin Islands and wanted to do another small beach trip before getting back to our teaching jobs. The Sonesta is exceptional. People are friendly, our room was upgraded and amenities can’t be beat! And the views are amazing from every room! Ocean views out of this world. We did not rent a car - Ubered to/from airport and walked everywhere else. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. Must eat at Primanti’s Italian Place on corner by hotel - breakfast and lunch and dinner! Pizza and breakfast is yummy and it’s reasonable. It’s a 2 min walk from hotel and is open 24 hours. Take the trip! Read less

Amazing staff! Food at Steelpan was the some of the best I've ever had. The rooms and meeting space were all fantastic. Incredible views from every angle. Banquet staff was super attentive. Not a fan of having valet parking only.
