    Magical from start to finish!

    Planning a wedding from out of town, where 50% of the guests were also out of towners can be a challenge, but Jay Day and the Royal Sonesta made our wedding day a magical day we’ll never forget! From the moment we met Jay, he put our minds at ease and helped us take care of all the details. He thought of things we hadn’t and made recommendations that were great. I put my trust in him and his staff and I’m so glad we did. From the beginning conversations about budget, and food to our large band and confetti cannons the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court made it all possible. I would highly recommend to any other bride and groom looking for a beautiful location with a great staff. Remember to request a high floor for the Bridal Suite!

    " wow - your venue was so classy and elegant, and the food was amazing!" - this is what I heard time and time again after hosting my wedding at the Royal Sonesta. Jay Day is incredible, he will answer your questions,guide you to making good decisions and will actually care about making your day a success. Jay and his entire staff were kind, professional and really made my day go smoothly. Jay will work with you if there is something you want to add, delete or change - he is fair and you never feel like you're being taken advantage of. The hotel rooms are stunning, the ballrooms are incredible,the entire hotel is so clean and impressive! The one thing that I really fell in love with, their ballroom actually has windows that show the harbor! we loved that our guests could have that view while eating their meals. Do yourself a favor and check out this venue!!
