of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Thanks Jessica for locating a store that was open after 11pm on a Sunday for something I needed the next morning for a business meeting! You were a huge help! The large bay windows facing the ocean are awesome.
"Nice rooms and nothing to do "
Stayed there with my wife for work, rooms are nice and comfortable, but if you come for vacation is not the best place, the area pool is small and enclosed, the beach was not in its best moment (hurricane Irma was a month ago) the area around is quite empty with few options for food or drinks.
"Terrific accomodations and staff"
Took a 4 day break from the northeast to come to Ft. Lauderdale and finally, after years of driving by this hotel thinking it was a condo or apartment building, booking our stay. What a great place, especially at the price point! For travelers unfamiliar with FTL, this is at the north end of the "strip" bisected by Sunrise Blvd. The hotel is modern, hip and has outstanding staff, especially the front end manned capably by Alexis at the front desk. Our king room was spacious, faced the ocean, and was very quiet with great housekeeping. The pool area is a bit small but worked well for our needs. There are a couple of pubs in the immediate footprint for food options other than the hotel. The beach is right across the street and the hotel has reserved chairs for guests. If you were thinking at staying at the W down the boulevard ( I have), this is a better, less expensive choice with great service and attitude from the management team. Will book this hotel again, without a doubt.
"The Parents Honeymoon, Tom and Clare Condon"
After my daughters wedding, me and my wife wanted a little rest and relaxation. Could not have picked a better hotel. Surrounded by a beautiful beach and several of the top restaurants in Florida. The hotel and rooms are very clean. The breakfast was the best in Ft Lauderdale. The employees bent over backwards for us. The pool and bar was just what we needed. Pulling this whole experience together was Joe the bartender at the pool. He makes the hotel. WE will be back soon.
"Great views and location."
We stayed at the Sonesta 3 nights pre-cruise. The hotel is located right on the beach front and about a 10 minute walk from a supermarket and mall so plenty of dining options available. The hotel is about a 15 minute drive from Port Everglades and a 20-30 minute walk from Las Olas. Check in and out was very quick and the staff were very friendly. They charge a $20 a day resort fee which includes Wifi, bottled water daily, tea/ coffee in the room, beach loungers, beach towel use, a free drink from the bar and they hold themed evenings too, one of the evenings we were there was free corn dogs. Our room was on the 5th floor and had a lovely ocean view room. (All rooms do) The room was light, airy and spacious. The room is very white which shows up every stain/ mark. My bed the headboard was a bit tattered and our bathroom wasn't particularly clean, however the rest of the room was fine. The beds were very comfortable, and we didn't have any issues with noise except from the air con. The hotel has a small swimming pool and a good amount of sun loungers to use, then the beach is just across the road where you have loungers to use. There is also a gym and small bar in the hotel lobby. The hotel has a restaurant attached open for all meals, however we did not use this so cannot comment on it. Overall we had a good stay here. Unfortunately the weather was not great so we couldn't get to the beach to use the loungers at all during our stay, which is a little annoying considering you pay for them in the resort fee, however we spent a lot of time in the hotel and in our room so we made the most of it there. We would stay here again, however it is a little far out for just a one-night pre or post cruise but for more than 2 days it's in a great location with the Mall, Supermarket, places to eat, Bonnet House and Hugh Taylor Birch Gardens all next door to the hotel.
