Our best decision yet!
We had such an amazing experience at Sonesta! The venue itself is beautiful and the staff is amazing! Everybody is so ready and willing to help. Theresa was always available for us throughout the entire process. The packages they offered allow lot of room for customization. We are still receiving compliments about the food. Our guests say it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! Everything ran so smoothly and we had the perfect wedding day!Sent on 11/09/2020

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 enoughSent on 02/19/2020
