    Fabulous Place for a Wedding!

    We were helped every step of the way. Every detail of our daughter's wedding came out wonderfully. The food was very tasty, the view was superb and the help we received from the wedding planner, Sabrina, was beyond terrific. She gave us great recommendations for florist and photographer and was helpful in every way imaginable. Also, she was very familiar with what we needed for a Jewish wedding. You'll not find a better place to hold a wedding and a better person to help you with it.

    Perfection!

    I recently hosted my son's welcome reception at The Royal Sonesta Boston. I dealt with Ashley, who made my vision come to life. I wanted the event to take place outside on the terrace, in cocktail party style, so people would mix and mingle. Just in case of inclement weather, Ashley also held a room inside that overlooked the river. The weather did not cooperate, but Ashley and her team set up the room like the cocktail party I envisioned. I left the decorations in Ashley's care and without instruction, the room was set up beautifully. The food was amazing. My guests had a wonderful time, and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I highly recommend having an event here!
