The Sonesta is a good choice for staying in Ft. Lauderdale if you want to be close to: the beach; restaurants; and, shops. It is a short drive to many fine restaurants and malls. Although there is a small market in the same block, a five minute drive will get you to a Publix. The rooms are nice size and... More

This renovated property has been around since the early 1960's when it opened as Schrafft's Motor Inn. Was a couple of other things, including a Holiday Inn, & before Sonesta, it was B Ocean. No balconies, but all units face the ocean opposite the hotel & the 9th-10th floor rooms have floor- to-ceiling windows. The rooms are very clean &... More

Dear NYCTraveler675, thank you for sharing your review. Each Sonesta hotel has a distinct design that ties back to it's location. Our hotel has more of a boutique & beach feel, which is appropriate for our location. My apologies for the issues you encountered during your visit. We work hard to provide a great experience to our guests, but it's... More

We were greeted happily on arrival. Quick check-in. Very clean, comfy, cheery and bright room. Huge picture window with a view of the ocean/beach! Plenty of towels. Easy access to ice machine. Short wait for elevator. Clean gym with working equipment, but would have preferred the treadmill to be more industrious. Close to many eating places.

My wife, daughter and I were in search of a decent restaurant with child-friendly options. Our hotel (Lago Mar Resort), though nice, had lousy overpriced food, so we felt very fortunate to find Sonesta's Bistro restaurant. After having a healthy and delicious dinner at Bistro, we decided to try their brunch the next morning and we were not disappointed. The... More
