Royal Sonesta Boston

Special Event Testimonials

We are delighted to share that named us as one of the Top Places in the Bay State Area to say, "I Do!"

I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you did with my daughter's bridal shower.  The room looked beautiful.  I loved the look of the linens and the tablescape with the gold chargers.  The brunch was excellent.  Guests were so impressed by the variety of food and how delicious it was.  The service, too, was excellent.  The staff was attentive and seemed to anticipate everyone's needs. I would not hesitate to come back to the Royal Sonesta for events in the future.  Thank you for all your help and efforts in making it such a special day for my daughter-in-law!

"The windows in the ballroom overlooking the Charles and the Boston skyline and the windows in the cocktail space are a real asset. Our donors raved about your hotel all night. The ballroom had been booked until 5:00 p.m. on the day of our event, but your staff turned it over in record time and set the dinner tables neatly and beautifully. It was truly a beautiful thing to behold with innumerable staff all doing their jobs in a bee hive of synchronized efficiency. The staff from KVL set-up the A/V equipment astoundingly fast so that we could test it and rehearse before guests arrived for cocktails.

The food was just as delicious and beautifully presented when it was served to a room full of guests as it had been when just two of us were served during our tasting. The entree came out hot and nicely arranged on the plate and everything was delicious and again, our guests commented on how much they had enjoyed their dinner. The chicken entree was cooked perfectly and was very moist in the center. Bravo to your Chef! Your wait staff was attentive and professional."

"We had the fairy tale wedding for Rob and Beth at the beautiful Royal Sonesta. The staff is wonderful from the doormen; to the executives. We really cannot say enough as to how pleased we are. I know the Mastria's were simply overwhelmed with how wonderful it all was. They had so many friends and relatives say it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Even though I love "traditional" the room was overwhelmingly beautiful and perfect. Even the "tiled art" was growing on me! :) The food was amazing and beautifully served. We had a family member leave a very expensive camera in his room when he checked out and he called John as they were on their way back to NJ, and the camera had already been turned in. You can tell the integrity of the whole staff at the hotel is top notch."

"I have gotten SO MANY comments about the fantastic food and especially the service. Every detail was attended to, and so many people told me how attentive the wait staff was -- how they re-folded the napkins and didn't deliver food until a guest was literally seated at their spot. People loved the ballroom and thought the hotel was very chic. Many of my guests had attended a previous function there (one couple had even gotten married there!) and those who weren't familiar with it were so impressed. I am delighted that we ended up choosing the Royal Sonesta for Max's Bar mitzvah."
Stacie B., Mother of the Guest of Honor

"The Royal Sonesta Hotel exceeded our expectations on any level. The personal service, the rooms, the food, and on and on, everything was perfect. Our catering manager assisted us in all the planning leading up to the wedding and her guidance during the days around the wedding was incredible. Her direction and attention to detail allowed us to enjoy our daughter's special day without worrying about what was to happen next. Since the wedding we have received an endless stream of phone calls, emails, and letters thanking us for the finest party that anyone could remember."
Jim S., Father of the Bride

"Thank you so much for coordinating everything for our wedding - the whole day was a perfect dream. My parent's phone has been ringing off the hook, and their email inbox is full, with guests who were blown away by the food and the atmosphere; you are awesome."
Lisa and P.T., Bride & Groom

"It was incredible. Thank you so much for everything you did to make the weekend so memorable. Everything about the venue was perfect and I don't use that word lightly. The food was outstanding, the service was fantastic, and the physical facility was beautiful. Your management of the event was instrumental in making it all work smoothly and seamlessly, and I so very much appreciate the time, effort, and attention to detail that you put into it."
