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.

The first time I went to the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale was for my bday in August. I wrote a review then about what a fabulous time I had. I told a friend about it and she wanted to go back for her birthday in October so we did. Again, we had a great time. Evelyn checked us in and from there were treated so well. The weather was great and the accommodations were impeccable. Waking up with a view of the ocean right across the street everyday didn't hurt. Kevin from housekeeping was very helpful with Keurig. We went to the ocean and to the pool to cool off. We spent too much money on the souvenirs at the shops located right next door. Of course while you are at the hotel, you have to meet Chef Kevin at the Steelpan.The second time was better than the first. He took such good care of my friend and I. He personally comes to the table to greet you as if you old friends. I don't know what to say about the staff but they make you feel so at home. Cary & Amy gave us great food service. Pencho & Patrick make the best drinks and Robby was an excellent host. Rene, poolside, was always on time with the cocktails and food. You will enjoy the Caribbean Jerk Wings, Steelpan Burger, Prawn cocktail, Tropical Salad, and end the meal with the Lava Chocolate Fantasy. For breakfast try the Breakfast Buffet, the Island French toast and Just fruit. You wont be disappointed! Cant wait to go back again. Read less

Adler was awesome, he went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. When i needed a water but didn’t have change, he made sure to come and find me once he was able to make the change. He helped us with our chairs, and even gave us a heads up when it was going to start to rain. Above all else, he did everything with a smile.
