    The Sonesta Hotel is a beautiful hotel. Her collocation is in the downtown of Frisco. Her particular architecture is so different between other hotel of Frisco . The Sonesta's hotel team is careful to necessity of the guest. The rooms are big and with large the beds of Queen size and other King size. The bathrooms are like a typical american bathroom, it is a few small but clean and this is important for me. The moquette is a few spotted but clear. If I go back again in Frisco I will thing sure to go back in Sonesta Hotel. Thank you so much for your kindness . I hope to go back soon.

    The bathroom - really old and grotty shower.

    Great location. Nice staff. Pretty hotel. Good price.

    Construction everywhere. Our room had no window - covered by plastic to keep construction dust out! Hotel bar LOADED with hookers at night. I was propositioned 3 times in 1 hour. It was beyond ridiculous. It's obvious that the hotel knows about this and didn't stop it.

    The humongous bed and comfy pillows. The staff are friendly and professional. We didn’t eat breakfast or dinner at the hotel, but had room service once and although it was extortionately expensive ($29 for a club sandwich once all the additional charges were added) it was nice.

    The hotel is soon to undergone a massive renovation and I think it shows. It is a tired hotel but it was clean and comfortable nonetheless. It’s our honeymoon so I think we were hoping to be wowed by the hotel, but it’s a bit of a ‘Instagram vs. Reality’ situation, but only this time, it’s the photos on booking.com vs. reality. We’ve no idea what the hotel looks like on the outside, it’s covered in scaffolding. We haven’t been affected by any preparatory work, but I think we both feel a bit let down by our stay here for the cost of the room. There are better locations too, and in hindsight, I think we would choose to stay further out of SF because being in this specific location didn’t add any benefit to our stay.
