Bottom Line

The all-white Sonesta 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. (It was formerly the unaffiliated B Ocean Fort Lauderdale and is not to be confused with B Ocean Resort.) 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.

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.
