Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island Named 'Best of the South' Winner by Meetings Focus Magazine

Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island has won the “Best of the South” distinction by Meetings Focus, a trade magazine dedicated to covering the meeting and convention industry. Earlier this year, readers voted for their choice of top hotels and resorts throughout the region that deliver exceptional meeting experiences, and the winners will appear in the September issue of the magazine. Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island is one of three South Carolina properties to receive the “Best of the South” distinction.
 
Properties were judged on several criteria: quality of meeting space, guest rooms, guest services and amenities, food and beverage service, high-tech services and equipment, recreational facilities and activities, the efficiency and helpfulness of staff, and overall value and experience.
 
This May, Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island officially completed a $30M renovation, including 22,500 square feet of all-new meeting and event space, and represents the only all-new resort to open at Hilton Head Island this year. Indoor and outdoor function space is available at Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island, and includes its 10,000-square-foot Santee Ballroom, 7,000-square-foot Oceanfront Pavilion and 2,500-square-foot Savannah Ballroom. A portion of the Oceanside Pavilion includes glass panels and built-in space heaters to allow for year-round events, and additional outdoor terrace space is also available to accommodate group functions. Collectively, the resort’s function space can accommodate groups from eight to 800 individuals.
 
The resort is currently offering groups and meetings up to 10 percent off their event booking with the “Plan-it Sonesta” package now available. The package allows planners to choose three of the value-added extras below as part of their event:
·      One complimentary room per 35 rooms reserved
·      One hour wine and cheese reception
·      One suite upgrade per 35 room nights reserved
·      Complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms
·      Complimentary Wi-Fi in general session
 
To book the “Plan-it Sonesta” package, events must be booked by Saturday, August 31, 2013, and events must occur by Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Visit http://www.sonesta.com/planit events and use the promotion code PLANIT.
 
“We’re proud to receive the ‘Best of the South’ distinction by the readers of Meetings Focus,” said Jay Wiendl, general manager of Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island. “We look forward to continuing to provide a quality event and meeting experience for groups that includes both indoor and outdoor spaces and high-quality, on-site catering options.”
 
The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island is located at 130 Shipyard Drive in Hilton Head Island, S.C. For more information about Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island, visit www.Sonesta.com/HiltonHeadIsland.
