Check out some of the reviews below from first-time Sonesta guests who can’t wait to come back for more!

“Luxury I could get used to!”

“This was my first stay at a Sonesta Hotel and I certainly hope it will not be the last! I had a beautiful, spotless, inviting room with a comfortable bed, well-designed bathroom and plenty of lights and charging ports. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was outstanding. I also appreciated the New Orleans touch — PJ’s Coffee in the lobby! Definitely a great experience from beginning to end, and I hated to leave this outstanding hotel!”

“Shockingly Surprised!!! Great hotel, great location”

“I have stayed in thousands of hotels worldwide because I am a business traveler of many years. I have become accustomed to clean hotels with attention to customer demands. I had never stayed at a Sonesta and this trip will certainly not be the last. Clean suites, polite staff, very comfortable bedding, and a well-maintained overall hotel experience. Well done, I say! I hope your stay is as great as mine was!”

“Excellent customer service”

“The Sonesta hotel located in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia is truly a gem in the heart of the city. Centrally located in a safe area, it is close to shopping, restaurants, and historical areas of Philly. I stayed on a business trip and from arrival to departure, the staff was excellent with close attention to details and customer service. The concierge staff hailed a cab for me on a daily basis without hesitation and anticipated any needs I might have. I would definitely stay again!”

“Wouldn’t stay anywhere else!”

“We have been to Baltimore many times, but this was our first stay at the Royal Sonesta.  It was a fabulous experience.  Wonderful staff and service, great location on the Inner Harbor.  Walking distance to many restaurants. Short cab ride to Johns Hopkins and the Baltimore Art Museum. Lovely breakfast – absolutely a 5 star hotel. I found it through the reviews on TripAdvisor – and it was better than described.”

“They made us feel so at home, treated us like family! Breakfast was amazing with home cooked food. The staff even shared a recipe for salsa with me. It was really a great place. I would stay again and recommend it to others.”

“First time, awesome hotel”

“This is the first time I ever stayed at Sonesta ES Suites Dublin and I will return. The housekeeping manager, Susan, was awesome — she went out of her way to get us two rooms in the same building. The room was nice, clean, and bigger than we expected. This is an awesome property, clean and well-maintained.”

“Great hotel in Coconut Grove with awesome rooftop pool”

“I needed a hotel in the Coconut Grove area and Sonesta was recommend by a friend. It was in a great location – walking distance to shopping. The best part was the rooftop pool and restaurant with a beautiful water view. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Rooms were clean and comfortable.”
