Where to Stay in Fort Lauderdale: Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel Thursday 20 July, 2017

Hi All! I am not sure if you know but I just returned back from my international experience in Panama and I am in the states again. I was gone for 3 weeks, and honestly I needed a vacation from my vacation! Have you ever needed that? I sure did I was exhausted from traveling and just the energy of returning back to my life in the states again, so I decided to have some extra R&R in Fort Lauderdale staying at the plush Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel.

I am so happy I made a decision not to go straight home from Panama to Atlanta and relax in Fort Lauderdale for a few days. I never really explored Ft.Lauderdale before, I have always frequent Miami (which is not that far from this city) and staying at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel was the perfect location to be by the beach and enjoy this chill beach area of Florida! Read more about my amazing stay below and all of the perks and amenities of staying at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel.

A prime location–and destination among Ft. Lauderdale hotel – accoriding to their website, you can Wake up and go to bed with the ocean breeze right at your door. Ideally located on a seven-mile stretch of the area’s namesake beach for your wading and viewing pleasure–soak it all in at one of the area’s finest Fort Lauderdale beach hotels.

When I opened my door to my room I was blown away by my views. It was amazing with these mega windows that illuminated my room completely with natural light and the panoramic view of Fort Lauderdale and the beach. I saw so much beautiful blue water, I instantly felt relaxed and had no need to leave me room anytime soon. Yes there was a beach right there, but sometimes its just as good to admire it as it is to be on the beach.

The panoramic views are outstanding. It was like looking at a postcard in the comfort of my room. I didn’t want to leave. Would you want to with a view like this? Watching the sunrise and the sunset in this room was so magical. Couldn’t beat these spectacular views from these windows.
