    Simply perfect wedding venue

    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. Jim Anello was exceptional to work with. He is the ultimate professional and ensured everything we wanted for our wedding was available. Throughout the 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 with 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 in to 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 were 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 Jim Anello and the Royal Sonesta Boston team for going above and beyond for us and our guests and ensuring we had our dream wedding weekend!

    Amazing Wedding Venue!

    The Sonesta is a "hidden gem" in the city. It is right on the water with views of the city. The food is incredible, all food was served hot to our guests; and the service in planning our wedding along with the day of logistics were not short in meeting our high expectations. Highly recommend the Sonesta!
