Sweet Sonesta Hotel Honey

The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore is home to about 30,000 honey bees. In cooperation with Baltimore Honey, this local non-profit organization assists the hotel with maintaining its own on-site apiary where we harvest our own all natural and organic raw honey. The honeybees spend their days collecting nectar and pollen from all over the city of Baltimore, some traveling as much as five miles per day. The honey produced collects in the hotel apiary and anything in excess of 50 quarts can be harvested for our use. Honeybees are the only bee that produces food – honey for humans to consume. 

We use the harvested product for our signature and savory Harbor Court Honey Wings and for the hotel’s signature cocktail.  Executive chef Josean Rosado is so interested in the hotel honey program that he became a certified beekeeper in order to assist Baltimore Honey with its Community Supported Apiaries (CSA) program.
