Daily resort fee applies
Located down the street from the Bonnet House and just a few steps from the beach, this ultra-modern resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, receives high praise from travelers for its picturesque ocean views. But past visitors had mixed feelings about the property's decor: Some found the trendy neon touches (especially in the lobby) to be a bit over the top, while others said the atmosphere was tasteful and unique. The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach's facilites also feature an outdoor pool, a fitness center and the highly acclaimed Bistro, which serves casual American fare. When it's time to sleep, recent guests were pleased that rooms come stocked with minifridges, flat-screen TVs, upscale bath amenities and Keurig coffee makers. However, for complimentary services like in-room Wi-Fi access and two welcome drinks, guests are charged a $20 (plus tax) daily resort fee.

Critic Reviews



With an awesome location across the street from the beach and just down from the bustle of nightlife, this hip hotel has just what you need for a memorable stay. Enter the lobby and you will find elaborate designs that are aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.



The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale merges trendiness with affordability in a 13-story U-shape tower overlooking the ocean, making it a smart choice for chic, clean, linear style guest rooms with pops of tropical colors and all the amenities you'd want in a youthful, beachfront hotel (though the exterior still harbors its original 1970s Holiday Inn architecture). The upside of the architecture: the outward facing U-shape facilitates ocean views from every room in the house.
