By the Beautiful Sea …

The main attraction of Fort Lauderdale is its namesake beach, 7 miles of golden sand steps from our door. But the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale also puts you at the center of southeastern Florida’s Gold Coast that stretches from West Palm Beach to our north to Miami to our south.

Locally, explore Fort Lauderdale’s network of canals by water taxi—with docks just three blocks from the hotel. The Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District is just four miles away, perfect for a day of browsing museums and art galleries and lingering at sidewalk cafés and restaurants. Find treasures at the fine boutiques along Las Olas Boulevard or bargains at Sawgrass Mills, the largest collection of outlet stores in the U.S. Come evening, step out to catch a show at the Broward Center for Performing Arts. Nature lovers can explore Butterfly World or embark on an exciting airboat ride. With a location that’s both scenic and central, the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale is your perfect choice.
