The Sonesta Hotel Group is not your typical hotel chain. The hotel is managed by a company that is dedicated to making each property unique, boutique-like, and true to its location. Recently, more than $250 million was invested in upgrades and redesigns which aim to deliver a guest experience that is centered on a brand commitment to provide guests with more than just a place to stay.
What sets this hotel apart from others is the fact that Sonesta takes enormous pride in preserving local culture. From the Royal Sonesta Baltimore‘s bee garden, and in-house made honey, to Royal Sonesta Boston‘s handpicked original contemporary art collection, this is no cookie-cutter hotel chain.
The unique vision of the hotel allows the cuisine to shine. Fresh local ingredients bring dishes to life. And, creative experienced Head Chef’s create memorable signature dishes.
Walk up the grand staircase to Explorer’s lead by Chef Edwin “Zeus” Harmon, who was influenced by his mother who once cooked for royalty. The restaurant is decked out in safari-inspired décor with animal murals, faux leopard-skin chairs, antiques, dark wood and leather furniture. The cuisine is inspiring.
Expect fresh seafood, the Harbor Court Honey Wings (prepared with product harvested from the hotel’s own apiary), or fresh local oysters that you must go to Baltimore to enjoy. The meat dishes are perfectly seasoned, and made with love. This is not your typical hotel restaurant!
Royal Sonesta Boston’s Chef, Dante de Magistris, presents classic Italian cuisine with a twist at Restaurant Dante. The restaurant has made headlines, both in Boston and around the world. Expect Mediterranean fare with a stunning view of the harbor overlooking the Boston skyline. The restaurant has become a local hot spot.
Naturally, the Sonesta hotel group is growing. The Sonesta International Hotels Corporation recently announced that nine new extended stay hotels have joined its Sonesta ES Suites brand. With the addition of these new locations, Sonesta ES Suites will expand their footprint from 16 to 25 hotels nationwide.
