Sonesta Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Gold Coast Beaches

The hotel

Oozing style and sophistication, one of the many great things about the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale is where it is. Set just steps from the 7-mile stretch of sands, you can be jumping in those lapping waves in no time. But it’s not all about the beach. You’ll love the relaxing, calm infinity-edge pool, and the spa suite where you can treat yourself to a massage. The restaurant is a cool twist of Caribbean and American food, and not forgetting the tasty cocktails!

We loved everything about our brief stay at Sonesta. From valet to front desk, hotel security, Covid protocols, location - the whole thing. It was wonderful. We were a traveling last minute check in and I wish we had had more time at this hotel. I have never felt so Covid safe in a place. They have truly thought of everything - masking,… Read more
We loved everything about our brief stay at Sonesta. From valet to front desk, hotel security, Covid protocols, location - the whole thing. It was wonderful. We were a traveling last minute check in and I wish we had had more time at this hotel. I have never felt so Covid safe in a place. They have truly thought of everything - masking, sanitizing - everything. If you’re considering Covid in your travels, this place is a 10/10! The hotel has wonderful beach views and is literally across the street. You can safely and quickly get there; or many other places! We popped into a little 24 hour pizza shop on the corner that was cheap and delicious! The bar service was wonderful and lively. Just can’t say enough good things. I hope you’ll consider Sonesta — it will be our one and only in the area! Read less

Enjoyed my time at this facility. I appreciated the fantastic views from my room. The staff were very pleasant, especially the bartender at the restaurant. The covid protocols were very good. Eateries and beach are within easy walking distant. I appreciated the walkup bar at the pool area. This is my second time at this hotel and I definitely… Read more

This was an amazing trip again. Stayed here last year for two months and this year two weeks. Rafael came right over to us asked us where we would like to sit and set up two chairs for us. He was extremely kind and helpful. I will just go back because it’s so pleasant dealing with sincere people like him. Hope to see him here next year

Sonesta hotel was very pleasant, Front Desk staff was very pleasant and professional throughout our 5night stay, valet parking was always very nice and very accommodating. The only thing I didn’t like was that we had no Housekeeping the entire time. I was getting misleading information every time I called for it. They initially said that due to Covid-19 we had to call before noon each day. When I called each day they said they don’t do housekeeping on the weekends. Needless to say, they did provide with extra towels. Also, we had two beds and on one of the beds the comforter was really old and worn out which I did call and asked for another one but that never happened. The small refrigerator was smaller than anything I’ve seen. Too small that even the Sonesta staff could not find it. Otherwise, the beach view was amazing, clean premises and fairly close to a few convenient stores and restaurants. Read less

I have been down in Fort Lauderdale 3 times now this year and every time I must stay at Sonesta. Hotel is immaculately decorated with a calm flow. The world-class customer service doesn’t just start at front desk but it starts at the valet. I have stayed a total of 19 nights thus far and my experience has surpassed all of my expectations either in season or off-season. This specific property has unbelievable views from the rooms, it definitely beats the Ritz Carlton down the street. Either if you’re on business or just away for the weekend trip with the loved ones, make sure to add Sonesta to your pick of hotels. If you don’t take my word for it…….just come experience it.
