"The perfect experience from start to finish!"

"My husband and I got married at the Royal Sonesta this past fall and when we reflect back on our day, there's nothing we would've done differently. The team at the Sonesta is elite; Michael Foley helped us from the beginning and brought our vision to life. He personifies a high sense of urgency, is a very detailed planner, extremely knowledgeable, and infuses positive energy the entire time. Michael was always available to answer our questions and gave us helpful suggestions along the way. We planned our wedding out of state and Michael was integral to organizing our big day. We received so many compliments when it came to our venue, service, food, spacious dance floor, accommodating staff...truly a one-stop-shop with 5-star service. A dedicated team, a joy to work with, and committed to making the big day exactly what you want...The Royal Sonesta is your spot!”

"The Royal Sonesta was the PERFECT location for our fall Boston wedding."

"With AMAZING views along the Charles River and being located in the heart of the city these are only a couple of the reasons why we couldn't resist having our wedding there. Michael Foley was my contact and was in constant contact with my about all of my wedding needs. Him and his team did not miss a beat from allowing me to deliver decor weeks before, dealing with vendors, hosting food tastings, arranging room blocks and parking and keeping me updated on everything. We are sure that we'll be receiving compliments for life after hosting our wedding there. We would recommend the Royal Sonesta AND Michael Foley time and time again!!”

"We cannot say enough about our experience with holding our wedding at the Sonesta."

"We toured many venues in the Boston area and from the second we toured the Sonesta and met the staff, we knew it was the place for us. Not only is the hotel (and its city view) amazing, but the staff surpassed all expectations. Michael Foley is the reason for that. He went above and beyond. The wedding planning process can be very overwhelming, but Michael made it so simple. He responded to emails SO quickly and always had answers for us to our MANY questions. He made any of our ideas a possibility. He is so professional, patient and kind. He also met with us in person multiple times, which helped to put all of us (including our parents and grandmothers) at ease. It's a small thing, but every time we met with Michael or even if we were dropping something off at the hotel he would always offer a coffee, tea, etc. He provides exceptional customer service and my family continues to talk about how great he is!"

"The room looked beautiful."

"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!"

"...overwhelmingly beautiful and perfect."

"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."

"...everything was perfect."

"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

"...the whole day was a perfect dream."

"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
