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.

Joejie was such a hospitable bartender and remembered our names whenever we went up for a drink. The pool is 24/7 which is a great feature! All of the workers are extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach was a great property to stay at! I got a pretty decent price on our stay of 4 nights.

Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach was a great property to stay at! I got a pretty decent price on our stay of 4 nights. There was a slight snag with check in as the key cards weren't working but staff was great and took us up to our room and then brought up the key cards 30 min later when it was finally working. The room as just as pictured online and was very clean. No problem at all and the housekeeping staff was kind. The hotel had a beautiful pool area that was open 24/7. They also had free chairs over at the beach for use as well as towels in the pool area that you can take over to the beach. The only issue I had was that with the credit card I gave upon check in, the man didn't explain that a hold of $200 would come up so that had me concerned. Also, I then noticed I had another random charge of $290 after 2 days of my stay. However, I talked with the staff and they explained everything to me and the issue was resolved and my money was returned to my card. I would just recommend checking your credit card you use on check in and watch for your charges in case something comes up by mistake. But like I said, they were very kind and helped resolve the issue. I would definitely stay here again! Read less

Our trip was made more delightful by both Joe (at the pool bar) and Rafael (at the beach) Not only were the friendly and accommodating they truly went above and beyond to make our stay extra special! Truly went the the extra mile and we’re by far the best part of our stay at the Sonesta!
