What are some recent reviews from couples who got married at Royal Sonesta Boston?
The Royal Sonesta Boston was quite simply the perfect wedding venue for us. The physical space, the hospitality, and the food quality all exceeded our expectations. Our wedding planner, Jim Anello was exceptional to work with. He is the ultimate professional and ensured everything we wanted for our wedding was available. During the wedding planning process, he was very responsive and answered all of our questions, and made our ideas possible! During the actual wedding weekend, he treated us and all of our guests like VIPs and the entire hotel service staff were exceptional hosts.
We currently live out of the Boston area as do many of our family and friends so it was important for us to select a hotel location that offered access to all things Boston. Hosting both the ceremony and reception at the hotel also provided easy flow for our entire wedding. In addition to being perfectly situated, the actual space where we hosted our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were beautiful with clear views of the back bay skyline. There are views of the skyline and lots of green areas and unique sculptures and artwork around the property to take photos. The space generously accommodated our large number of wedding guests (200+). The boutique nature of the hotel was comfortable and allowed our guests to organically run into each other throughout the weekend. We are still receiving rave reviews about the food and service from our guests! Jim and his team worked with us to ensure that the menu was specific to our tastes and was able to customize some specialty items. In addition, they were very accommodating and well trained on food allergies, which a few of our guests required attention to. The hotel staff even ensured that my husband and I received our special dessert the next day since they knew it was unlikely we would be able to partake during the reception. We cannot thank the entire team and the Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston for going above and beyond for us and our guests and ensuring we had our amazing wedding weekend!
The perfect experience from start to finish! My husband and I recently hosted our wedding at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston 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 did a great job coordinating 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 did our wedding planning out of state and Michael was integral in organizing our big day. We received so many compliments when it came to our wedding 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 most amazing wedding exactly what you want…The Royal Sonesta is your perfect wedding venue!
Oh my goodness I don’t even know where to start. Our wedding coordinator in the grand ballroom was absolutely amazing. He kept everything so professional and made my wedding feel like a fairytale. I know I had been annoying with my emails but he always had a prompt and professional response. He truly helped us stay within our budget and gave us recommendations on where we could make our changes. The food was out of this world, and the late-night snacks will be talked about for ages. Michael checked on us throughout the reception to make sure everything was perfect, and it was thanks to him. I highly recommend Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston as your wedding venue!
I selected the Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston as our wedding venue due to its location, view, and modern decor. That seemed like the makings of the perfect wedding venue for me, but the actual services were so much more than I could have ever imagined. The wedding packages included everything: food, wedding cake, servers, day-of-coordinator, linens, tables/chairs, all table settings, and a bridal suite! My coordinator Michael organized all the vendors so that all I had to worry about on my wedding day was getting married. From the moment I checked in for the big weekend, the suite, located on the top floor, was jaw-dropping with a full 180-degree view of the city, 2 balconies, 2 bathrooms, a parlor, and of course the bedroom. I was able to get ready in the room making me feel like a true princess on my wedding day. From there, everything was orchestrated perfectly. The waitstaff was so attentive, I had friends and family come up to me to comment on how the entire event is impressive. The food was delicious and the cake package allowed me to design a gorgeous cake (which to me is such a nice touch) by The Icing on the Cake. Our guests raved about the amazing event coordination. Overall, the Royal Sonesta was able to be more than just the perfect location of my fairytale wedding that I will treasure forever, we really had a wonderful time.
