Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Unveils New Programs & Amenities

The 240-room oceanfront Sonesta Fort Lauderdale hotel today revealed an array of new programs and amenities that will be launching in the coming months. One of only three Sonesta properties in Florida, the hotel is bringing a sophisticated style of hospitality to travelers visiting the Fort Lauderdale market.   "We are thrilled to introduce this property as part of the Sonesta Collection, offering travelers a genuine, memorable experience that truly reflects the culture and personality of Fort Lauderdale and South Florida,” said Eduardo Fernandez, General Manager of Sonesta Fort Lauderdale. “We look forward to delivering on the Sonesta brand promise, surpassing guest expectations in every way.”   Embarking upon an exciting journey heading into 2015 as the newest addition to the Sonesta Collection, Sonesta Fort Lauderdale will offer a sense of place, not just a place to stay.  The hotel’s Spa Suite will debut a variety of new treatments and packages, with the addition of new seasonally inspired selections.  Creative packages and programs will showcase Breeze Terrace, which boasts stunning ocean views and is ideal for small meetings, holiday parties and other social or corporate functions.    Embodying Sonesta’s brand-wide Food is Art philosophy, Sonesta Fort Lauderdale will be revamping the menu in Bistro, the hotel’s casual full-service beachfront restaurant.  This will include lighter, fresher options infused with local ingredients and South Florida flair. And, in honor of Sonesta’s Liquid Art program, handcrafted seasonal cocktails featuring local ingredients will join the menus in Sonesta Fort Lauderdale’s lobby and pool bars.  New social activities will be introduced in these spaces as well, such as themed happy hours.   An added benefit, travelers visiting Sonesta Fort Lauderdale can now take advantage of the brand’s unique Travel Pass Guest Recognition Program, which is focused on a guest’s personal preferences, special amenities and personalized attention. Sign-up is free and Travel Pass perks begin from the moment a guest enrolls, with members enjoying little luxuries that make every stay special. There are three membership tiers and it only takes six stays at any Sonesta Collection property to earn Elite Member status. The program is complemented by a monthly getaway sweepstakes for those who really have a passion for travel.   “Sonesta Fort Lauderdale team members have recently completed an extensive training program, in order for them to truly understand and embrace our mission of offering warm, authentic hospitality,” said Eduardo Fernandez, General Manager of Sonesta Fort Lauderdale. “It is an exciting opportunity to be able to share the unique Sonesta style, culture and personality with guests visiting us in Fort Lauderdale.”   In addition to its new programs and services, Sonesta Fort Lauderdale is restyling several areas of the hotel with a new color palate and lively new patterns that will offer a welcoming greeting to guests. New high-top seating will be added to the lobby bar area to take the lobby from a place of transaction, to a place of interaction.  Guests will also enjoy new in-room mini-fridges, new pool cabanas, refreshed pool furniture, and lush new landscaping.   To learn more about Sonesta Fort Lauderdale, current offers or to make reservations, please visit or call 954-315-1460. For the latest news and information, become a fan on Facebook or follow the hotel on Twitter and Instagram @SonestaFtLaud.    About Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Sonesta’s newest destination, the AAA Four Diamond-rated oceanfront Sonesta Fort Lauderdale, features 240 guest rooms including 24 spectacular suites, all of which boast panoramic views of the seven-mile stretch of Fort Lauderdale beach.
