Our experience at Sonesta was amazing, beyond words. We had a Sunday (9/3/17) wedding, and our family stayed at the hotel the whole weekend. The service was spectacular, the rooms clean and very well spaced. I had the most beautiful and captivating views for our wedding, that penthouse has stunning backdrops. The food, oh my good, the food, simply delicious. All of our guests mentioned how beautiful everything was and how great that food was. Annette Winckler, the event planner and manager, did such an incredible job providing us with all the information we needed and the best accommodations for our weekend wedding. In terms of the reception, the staff was the BEST I could have ever asked for, specially Williams and another Hispanic lady that took care of us and serve our food. EVERYTHING was perfect as we wished. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change anything about it. My now husband and I are very thankful with all the staff that made this dream possible. Thank you Sonesta!!!Sent on 09/11/2017

My husband and I were married at the Penthouse of the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale on October 29th. Not only was the wedding beyond what we could have asked for, the whole weekend was amazing. We live in the Boston area, but spend a good amount of time in Miami/Fort Lauderdale as my in laws live in the area.Sent on 11/07/2016
Being an event planner myself, I looked at 7 different venues in the area and immediately fell in love with your hotel. Not only are the views amazing, the penthouse layout is a dream come true for a planner; ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all on one level. Perfect event flow!
I could go on about the great location, delicious food, gorgeous and modern accommodations etc., but the staff is what truly made our wedding weekend unforgettable. They are responsive, thoughtful and professional. There honestly is not one thing that could have been done to make our wedding weekend better. It was perfect.
