We cannot say enough about our experience with holding our wedding at the Sonesta. We toured many venues in the Boston area and from the second we toured the Sonesta and met the staff, we knew it was the place for us. Not only is the hotel (and its city view) amazing, but the staff surpassed all expectations. The wedding coordinator, Michael Foley, went above and beyond. The wedding planning process can be very overwhelming, but Michael made it very simple. He responded to emails SO quickly and always had answers to our many questions. He made any and all of our ideas a possibility. He also met with us in person multiple times, which helped to put all of us (including our parents) at ease.

We just got married at the Royal Sonesta and everything about our wedding day was perfect! We loved the venue from the start because the staff was so easy to work with, the view was beautiful and the package included everything. We worked with Bianca who was so helpful and easy to work with - on the day of, we didn't have to worry about a thing and everything was seamless. The planning process was also incredibly easy because the hotel does so much for you. The space is beautiful, the view is breathtaking and the cocktail hour on the patio by the river was such a nice touch. The location is so convenient and it's great that everyone can just stay at the hotel. Also the food is amazing! Everyone had so much fun and raved about how great the venue was.

I highly recommend Royal Sonesta for your upcoming wedding! When we first toured the Sonesta we knew this was our wedding venue. We loved the location, the beautiful views, and the food is amazing. We worked with Bianca at the Sonesta to plan our wedding and she was amazing to work with! She had really great advice and was receptive to our ideas for our wedding. On our wedding day she did a great job coordinating all of our vendors, and our wedding went exactly as we had planned ☺

We had a great experience at the Sonesta. We worked with Bianca McCann and she was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. The entire event was very flexible and it seemed like we were able to change anything big or small, including food, size, seating, timeline, set-up etc. Bianca was very responsive and fantastic to work with. She also worked very well making everyone including my mother and husband, happy with the planning and the big weekend's events.

Royal Sonesta was the first place we contacted as the views of the Boston skyline was what we were looking for and something about this hotel caught our eye. Our wedding was a mix of Chinese-American traditions so we were looking for a venue that would allow us to host just our ceremony, at a reasonable price and without any extra add-on requirements like many of the other hotels in Boston require. Julie Bourque, Catering Sales Manager, was amazing. She was responsive, helpful and understanding of our need for a mix of traditions without breaking our budget. During the time of planning our wedding the Royal Sonesta went through a major update to the decor/style of hotel and many people questioned our trust in the outcome. Prior to the updates, the hotel's style was already something any bride and groom could turn into their own as the color palette was neutral beige tones. The updates now make the hotel a more modern hotel with its gray and blue tones which still keep it neutral enough for any bride and groom who may not want to splurge on extra decor, as we kept our decorations to the minimum since the skyline was the main attraction. Our wedding took place on May 7th so you can imagine with all the college graduations happening at this time and the beginning of wedding season, prices for hotel accommodations were definitely on the high end but we were also able to book hotel rooms for our out of town guests at a very reasonable rate. We also stayed at the hotel/got ready at the hotel in one of the suites which was overlooking the water. The rooms feel luxurious, as you would expect, and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, we loved everything about the Royal Sonesta and definitely would do it all over again with this vendor.

Hands done the best experience of our lives. From start to finish Julie was a pleasure to work with! She handled every single detail and helped me get the exact room that I wanted in a short time frame! The service was incredible from all the staff at the reception. Also the food was excellent! It was my dream wedding and Julie made it happen as I always pictured it would be. My husband and I will always remember this night as one of the best nights of our lives. We thank you all so much! -Ariana and Marco Fosco

We looked at about 8 or 9 different venues around Boston and instantly fell in love with the Royal Sonesta. The fact that you can have EVERYTHING in one location was incredible for us and our guests (everyone loved it....way better than shuttling people back & forth to different locations. I highly recommend this convenience factor - especially during such a stressful event like a wedding!)....we did our pictures, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party and brunch the next day ALL there (my wife even had her wedding shower there too!). The staff were all so wonderfully professional and nice. The view of the Charles River through the floor to ceiling windows was spectacular. Great backdrop for our pictures during the day. Food was tasty! No complaints anywhere! I can't say enough good things about our wedding coordinator, Julie Bourque (she was actually a large part of the reason we ended up choosing Royal Sonesta....it was a close tie between The State Room and Royal Sonesta...convenience of all activities in one location and getting Julie is what pushed us towards the Sonesta). Julie was responsive leading up to the wedding (we planned the whole thing in less than 5 months so she was a rock star), left cute secret presents for us the night before and after our big day, jumped through a ton of hoops and bent over backwards the day of all while being a calming factor and ensuring everything went off without a hitch....and still stays in touch to this day with HANDWRITTEN birthday cards!

There are no words to describe how special our wedding weekend was at the Royal Sonesta. The entire team - especially Julie and Bianca were an absolute joy to work with. The view from the hotel is absolutely priceless and inside the hotel is the most amazing collection of curated art and gorgeous decor. Every detail of the weekend from the catering menu to the rehearsal dinner was handled flawlessly. We were so lucky to have been married in such a beautiful, intimate setting. A very big thank you and a very strong recommendation from myself, my groom, and our families!!

We had the most amazing wedding in the Riverfront room at the Royal Sonesta. We worked with Karie to plan our wedding, and she was wonderful. She responded to all my questions very quickly, and she worked to accommodate all of our requests. The location is stunning with beautiful water views with the city in the background during the day which turn into great views of the city all lit up at night. The food was delicious, and the hotel was great and comfortable for our overnight guests. I have had so many people reach out to me to tell me how perfect of a venue we chose. We couldn't be happier!

Absolutely outstanding venue. Our wedding was around 50 folks, so we were able to use the stunning river view rooms on the second floor along with the outdoor reception area facing the Charles River. The entire team was excellent from first contact and RFQ/Bid all the way through the actual day of the wedding. Everything was handled with great care and precision, and they heard and listened to everything that we had to say and also offered great advice, ideas and feedback. We would absolutely recommend this venue for weddings or other private functions. Our guests also loved their hotel rooms and the location (out of owners)

My husband and I had no doubt when we got engaged where we would get married - when we were dating we would stay at the Royal Sonesta, it was the place of our first kiss and where we got engaged. Little did we know how AMAZING the Banquet staff and the catering would be. From day 1 we worked with Katie D, the Sonesta's Catering Manager, to design our perfect wedding. Katie listened to us and followed through with every detail we asked - trust me, I asked a lot!! She worked within our budget and helped bring to life the wedding of our dreams. As a slightly OCD bride it would have been impossible for me to relax not controlling every detail of the preparation the day of the wedding but with Katie in charge, I knew I was in good hands. I cannot tell you how amazed our guests were at the stunning views from the hotel, the excellent food and the professionalism of the staff. I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Royal Sonesta and Katie! If I could give them 10 stars, I would!!

From day one, the Wedding Coordinator, Trang made my experience far superior than any hotel I have ever worked with. She was always punctual, organized, and willing to go above and beyond to make me happy. Her attention to detail, passion for event planning, and knowledge of the industry made our wedding experience at the Royal Sonesta impeccable. We have received several calls from friends and relatives raving over the meals, especially the filet! Everything was cooked and seasoned to perfection. We are so pleased with the quality of service and food provided that we will be sure to highly recommend the Royal Sonesta for events!
