Very nice and clean Hotel. Good price and quality of service. Very close to the beach as well.
Formerly known as the B Ocean - Rebranding and revamp of the hotel lobby and bar. I recommend it! Great place on the Hollywood blvd.

Room Tip: Ocean view

Dear pagapaga,

Thank you for staying with us recently and for taking the time to review our latest addition to the Sonesta Collection. We're so glad to hear that you noticed some of the enhancements we've made after our rebranding, and hope you'll be back soon to enjoy them again.

The hotel is in a great spot on the beach front.

The lovely staff offered us an upgrade to a beautiful room with stunning views of the ocean.
The hotel is very trendy, heaps of restaurants on the water front.
Free Wifi, great bar area with free snacks & wine every night at 5pm which was very nice.

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night before getting on a cruise, but next time I'd definitely make time to stay a little longer.

We had the pleasure of having a little family (me, my husband, and our 12 month old daughter) stay-cation this weekend at the Sonesta Ft. Lauderdale. I've been to the property before, when it was the B-Ocean, and it is as lovely now as it was then.

Highlights:
- The staff consistently exceeded our expectations on friendliness and helpfulness. Often, we had to ask for a high chair or plate of fruit for the baby, and each time, the staff met each request with a smile.
- Hotel views are STUNNING. We spent much of our time at an event on the Penthouse level, and you simply can't get a better view anywhere on Ft. Lauderdale Beach.
- Proximity to the beach is excellent- literally across the street!
- Hotel food at the Sonesta is wonderful. There was not a single meal that we didn't find ourselves talking about during the day. So worth it!
- The hotel is a little north of much of the "action" of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. For us, this was a HUGE plus, as we were definitely seeking a quieter experience.
- Can't beat the fact that Primanti Bros (delicious all-hours pizza) is right nearby in case you need a snack!
- Housekeeping folded up our clothes when they cleaned our room each day!
- Biggest plus: The General Manager, Eduardo, was visible all weekend long. He asked us how everything was no less than 3 times during the weekend. It's clear that the culture he sets for his staff comes from his own customer service philosophy.

Things I'd change if I could:
- It's true, not all Sonesta Ft. Lauderdale views are created equal. We were in a 3rd floor room, and the view was not as "inspiring" as those on higher floors. (We spent time in a friend's room on the 10th floor, and the difference was tremendous.) Though we did have a view of the ocean, on my next visit, I will be sure to request a higher floor. You should too.
- The pool and deck area are both quite small. On a busy summer Saturday afternoon, it was too crowded for us to enjoy, so we chose other activities.
- If you want to be in the middle of the bars and similar nightlife, this may not be the right property for you. We loved the location and the quiet!
- Valet parking is very expensive. That being said, the valet staff were very quick to bring our car around, and were in no way bothered when we asked them to bring the car around just so we could put bags in it and go back upstairs. There is street parking available, but it is metered.

Though no property is perfect, we fully enjoyed our stay at the Sonesta Ft. Lauderdale, and we would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. We absolutely plan to come back here! Thanks so much to all of the fabulous Sonesta staff for a wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: Be sure to request the highest floor you can!

nice staff, gorgeous room, floor to ceiling ocean views. Only negative is, no fridge or microwave. They will bring fridge if you ask but no microwave. My wife likes hot tea at nite. They will bring you a pitcher of hot water if needed for tea. VERY NICE staff. And there is only valet parking 28.00 a day, very worth it in this neighborhood. lots of shops and restaurants parking is tough.
