Sonesta Announces New General Manager at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore

David Kohlasch was introduced as General Manager as Sonesta begins operations at the 195-room Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore today. With over 30 years of experience in hospitality management, Kohlasch brings new leadership to the hotel team as the hotel transitions to Sonesta management.

His experience includes regional operations for Flik Conference Centers, COO/EVP for the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington DC, and director of food & beverage for the Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston. 

“David is the ideal general manager for this property, as he is familiar with both the destination and Sonesta’s culture and management style,” said Sonesta President Stephanie Sonnabend. Sonnabend continued, “The Harbor Court has been a recognized leader of Baltimore hospitality, and under David’s leadership it will be again.”
