We've stayed at the Sonesta several times. While the rates can be high from month to month, the view from the 8th floor pool makes it worth trying this property.
The Positives: Great location, great pool deck (and view), clean pool and awesome restaurant staff (Alex, Edra and John A. on the 8th floor are AWESOME and made our stay).
The Negatives: Valet is way overpriced (with much cheaper parking right next door), Mr. Frog's plays booming music that funnels up and resonates through even the closed impact windows until 2-3 AM each night, the pool closes too early in the evening (10 PM) when the pool deck and whirlpool should remain open until 11 with the restaurant, the drink prices are WAY too high (unless it's happy hour) and finally a very select few of the staff (specifically Jen in the Panorama restaurant, a valet team that can't drive a stick vehicle and the grumpy bellmen) were continually unprofessional.
Local residents should be sure to try them out for a little getaway!More
