We have been to the Sonesta at HHI many times. While some restrictions are still in place due to Covid, we found the majority of the staff were pleasantly dealing with the circumstances.

Yes, the staff manages went out of their way to change my accommodations. All other staff were also very friendly and helpful.
Other Comments
I had to changed rooms 3 times. The first 2 rooms had ripped , dirty/stained carpet, broken vanity, broken lamp, broken shower valve and I was unable to open the drapes because the people from the parking lot could see into my room and a yellow t-shirt was hanging in a Palm Tree. This is not a 4 Star Hotel. They really need to renovate this hotel.

The TravelZoo deal at the Sonesta made this a great getaway. The hotel was pleasant and safe during these pandemic times. As full use of resort amenities is not possible, the waiving of that reviled tactic of hotels now, the "resort fee" was the key to our selection of this hotel and deal.
Other Comments
Hotels and resorts like the Sonesta should consider removing the "resort fee" permanently, not just making it a sales tactic to waive it.

They gave attention to detail in making stay enjoyable. Food was great in the restaurant. Family oriented for kids. Exceptionally clean. I look forward to our next visit.

It is time to upgrade the furniture and carpeting. Warn places on arms of couch and carpet coming up in the corner. Outside doors to stairwells were always open and did not require a key card to enter. Tub was rusting near the floor.

The Sonesta is definitely a five star resort offering three restaurants, with lots of outdoor seating, pool bar, two heated pools, hot tub, and easy walk beach access even for older folks. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Prices for good are very reasonable...$7.00 Caesar salad, $24 burger and food is flavorful! Only downside is alcohol purchases....two drinks in 12 ounce plastic cups with lots of ice was $34.00 plus tip. Our price on Travelzoo with the convenience fee waived was $114 nite, taxes and wifi included. Folks we talked to paid over $200 a nite with taxes and resort fee. Whats not to LOVED our price from Travelzoo!

Resort was empty and quiet. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Wish I had known that many of the resort amenities (i.e. shuttle service, beach activities) were closed during the season of our visit. Not sure I could justify that extra charge on top of the room.

Once again - the staff was amazing.

This resort is hidden away back in the secluded area. It is on the beach, but still a pretty good walk from our hotel room. Restaurant is OK, but pricey. Nothing is within walking distance, so to do anything you have to get out into traffic. It’s a beautiful hotel and the grounds are spectacular, but the room is very very average. I wouldn’t pay the full price is to stay there.

The resort is beautiful & the location serene . The hotel though has definite plumbing issues. We had to request a change of room the 2nd day as there was a sewage smell from the bathroom. The next day water was shut off from early afternoon till late evening for plumbing issues again. Besides this the place is lovely with access to the beach, the pool & surroundings were truly like a tropical paradise. Due to covid restrictions not much of food options on site but there are many restaurants in the area. The staff is helpful & knowledgeable about the area. The resort is completely accessible & has the option of a beach wheelchair.

One of the staff Meg was a gem! Helpful with everything. She was nice enough to offer an ocean view room after the room trouble.
