Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Right across from the beach
  • Every room has an ocean view
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Two delicious restaurants, including the fashionable Saia
  • Clean, minimalist, modern design
  • Great ocean views from all event spaces

Cons

  • No full spa; just a small "spa suite"
  • No balconies or terraces on rooms
  • No nightlife or destination bars
  • Very small fitness center

Bottom Line

The all-white Sonesta Fort Lauderdale (formerly B Ocean Fort Lauderdale) sits just across the street from the beach, with an austere, minimalist design -- similar to the style of a W hotel, with subtle neon lighting in the lobby come nightfall. The ocean views are the star here, but you'll also find two great restaurants and a small pool with an accompanying outdoor bar. Despite a trendy appearance, this 240-room hotel is popular with families, and it's not uncommon to see kids splashing in the pool or eating dinner in the restaurants.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Right across the street from the beach

The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale (formerly B Ocean Fort Lauderdale) is part of Fort Lauderdale's main strip of beach hotels, along A1A highway. Most importantly, it is right across the street from the beach.

Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, the hotel has beautiful views all around and is close to many beachside hotels and restaurants. The Fort Lauderdale Beach is just across the street and Bonnet Gardens, home to beautiful flora and fauna, as well as a museum, is just blocks away.

  • Across the street from the beach
  • 2-minute walk to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a nature preserve
  • 8-minute walk to Bonnet Gardens
  • 4-minute drive to Las Olas Boulevard, a strip of restaurants, bars, and clubs
  • 8-minute drive to downtown Fort Lauderdale
  • 14-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 35-minute drive to Miami
  • 40-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 1-hour drive to Palm Beach
