ConventionSouth ‘Hottest of the Hot’ 2018 Winter Meetings



After a review of ConventionSouth’s entire (16 state) coverage area, their editorial team selected an elite group of ten hot spot cities for winter events. Readers were then asked to vote for the hottest meeting sites within these hot spots, determining the “Hottest of the Hot”. Sonesta is proud to announce that we have won this recognition in four of our destinations.

"Hottest of the Hot" Sonesta Hotels for Meetings: 


Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta


Sonesta Bee Cave Austin


Royal Sonesta Houston


Royal Sonesta New Orleans


“It is with great honor that we recognize the 2018 ‘Hottest of the Hot’ as their Southern locations, seasonably warmer climates and extraordinary meetings options make these sites a cold weather reprieve for groups from across the country,” said ConventionSouth Senior Editor, Marcia Bradford. “The late Fall, Winter and early Spring months are often the most popular time to hold a meeting, event or convention—especially due to the lower rates that can be found during this non-peak season. Therefore, Southern destinations like these are a top choice for meeting planners who need to boost attendance and participation rates by attracting those who seek warmer weather. Meeting planners can also feel confident that these destinations come recommended and have year-round attractions and festivals, ample meeting sites and outdoor recreational opportunities during the winter.”
