    The best venue

    I can not say enough how much I loved Sonesta as our venue. While touring venues on HHI we were blown away by how nice the staff was at Sonesta. We got this same feedback from multiple guests. The Pavillon was the perfect size for our wedding and was just magical. Theresa was PHENOMENAL to help us plan. I can not recommend this venue enough
