My husband and I had the most wonderful wedding at the Royal Sonesta! Their facilities (ballroom, cocktail hour room) are absolutely gorgeous and offer great views of Boston. The food is fantastic, and countless guests told us how amazing it was. Most importantly, the servive that we received from our wedding coordinator was absolutely and incredibly exceptional. He was EXCELLENT - very responsive, extremely helpful. He thought of everything and answered every single question that I had during the entire process. We all knew that every member of their staff was committed to making our day the best it could possibly be, and it was. I can't say enough good things about working with the Sonesta for our wedding. They were wonderful, and everything was gorgeous. HIGHLY recommended!Sent on 08/30/2011

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!Sent on 12/21/2017

Oh my goodness I don’t even know where to start. Michael was our coordinator in the grand ballroom, and he 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. 10/10 stars if I could go that high. You guys were the best.Sent on 09/11/2018
