Sonesta Select is the new brand for local hotel

Community By Megan Jacobo, Reporter Friday, November 5, 2021

  Early in 2021, the Sonesta hotel company acquired numerous Marriott locations in the United States, including the Courtyard Marriott in Miami Lakes that could be seen from the Palmetto Expressway.

     “We are trying to get the word out to let people now that we are now Sonesta Select,” said Christen Conte, director of sales at the Miami Lakes location.

     The hotel has rebranded its restaurant and calls it The Commons at Sonesta Select. 

     It serves breakfast, “early-evening shareables” and dinner and has a full bar. It also brews Starbucks coffee for restaurant guests. 

     Amenities at this pet-friendly hotel include a patio and outdoor pool, a fitness center, meeting spaces and event rooms. There are 151 rooms priced from $109 per night to $149 or more, depending on the season. 

     As Thanksgiving approaches, Conte said there may be special deals available for families who are visiting relatives in the area. 

     And there’s good news for Marriott members: They can apply Marriott Rewards points to rooms at this location or use the Sonesta Travel Pass program.

     Guests who regularly stay at the hotel are those in the airline industry; business travelers; church groups; wedding parties; families gathering for reunions and sports fans, Conte said.

     “We’re trying to get more local business,” Conte said.
