Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach is a hip hotel, with chic rooms, reasonable prices and an excellent location.

The 4-star property is right across the street from the beach, one block north from the area's bars, and a 10-minute drive to the boutiques, art galleries and restaurants along Las Olas Boulevard. The city's Sun Trolley passes by and is a good option for getting downtown -- day passes cost $2 per person.

Typical of many hotels in the area, the exterior looks like it's from the 1970s. Inside, however, the décor is fresh-faced and stylish. All rooms have a simple white color scheme with partial or full ocean views. Suites are larger and come with a separate living area with a pull-out couch, making them ideal for families.

According to Fodor’s the hotel is a “fabulous choice,” with all of the amenities you’d need at a trendy hotel. These include an outdoor pool lined with cabanas -- which unlike most hotel pools in the area, can be used for free -- a poolside bar, a spa suite offering reasonably priced massages and BISTRO restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

From the press:
  • "If it weren’t for the rates, you could mistake this hotel for a pricier single-letter chain ... But we love how the 240-room [hotel] does affordable without nickel-and-diming guests" -- Travel + Leisure
  • "This eco-friendly, ultra-modern hotel receives high praise from travelers for its dining options, convenient locale, and gorgeous ocean views" – U.S. News Travel

I didn't like that you could have 4 in a room, but could only get 2 passes for beach chairs and had to pay for the other 2.

The staff provided my wife and myself a bottle of champagne and chocalate covered strawberries to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary

The ocean views no matter which room you stayed in; the fact that the hotel was literally across the street from the fort lauderdale beach; the cleanliness and modern feel to the hotel; the very friendly and accommodating staff; the fact that breakfast was included every day

two negatives for can hear everything through the floors and walls and I really would liked to have had a balcony to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views from the hotel room.

We paid extra for a "suite" which was really just a slightly larger room than normal with a couch. Not to mention the suite they put us in was right next to the ice machine, which did not have a door to isolate the noise and other floors didn't have an ice machine so all night we heard people getting ice. There were not enough elevators and there were no stairs to the lobby so we often spent up to 20 minutes waiting on an elevator. The pool is way too small for a hotel of its' size - we could barely move in it there were so many people. We had vouchers for breakfast so thank god we didn't pay but the buffet was worse than what you get for free at a hampton inn or numerous other hotels. If I'd paid $20 for that I would have been livid. Also I tried to call in advance to request early check in and a crib and they told me I had to call travelzoo for that but travelzoo told me that was false. Luckily the person I talked to at travelzoo was very helpful and took care of it for me.
