Hospitality Started Here
Our History

Hospitality Started Here

In 1937, real estate mogul A.M. “Sonny” Sonnabend pooled his resources with other investors to purchase the Preston Beach Hotel in a tiny Massachusetts seaside town. Thanks to the success earned from the unrivaled service and hospitality he provided every guest, his focus moved from real estate to hospitality. Excellent service and authentic experiences became the foundation for what would become one of the first U.S.-based international hotels—and they remain a cherished tradition Sonesta has honored every day for over 80 years.
