The #SpiritofSonesta is alive and well as our hotels decorate their trees, flip the switches on their lights, share seasonal treats, and busily plan for holiday meals and events. Even if you aren’t staying Sonesta this holiday season, we wanted to take you on a tour of some of our holiday decorations, hoping we can spread some cheer to all of you!

Sonesta Philadelphia

Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square matched their holiday trees to their black and red lobby art and hotel decor. Visit Philly throughout this winter with their Overnight Winter Package.

Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta

At the newly launched dual-brand Sonesta in Gwinnett Place Atlanta, the lobby is the place to be to enjoy decorations and beautiful lighting, and the celebratory mood continues into the New Year with their New Year’s Eve package.

Royal Sonesta Boston

The team at Royal Sonesta Boston got into the spirit by having each department decorate a gingerbread house for their Sonestaville lobby display. Each department also chose a favorite charity. Guests can vote for their favorite gingerbread house, and part of the proceeds of the hotel’s Dining with Santa events  will be donated to the charity of the winning department’s choice.

Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore

Meanwhile, at Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, the lights are bright and beautiful, and visitors are gathering to ride their beloved Holly Jolly Trolley to see the festive spirit Baltimore has to offer.

Holiday-Bee Cave

The tree at Sonesta Bee Cave Austin is trimmed, the presents are wrapped, and the staff is ready to give a warm Texas welcome to holiday visitors.

Holiday - Hilton Head

The hall of trees at Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island is a tradition that has become an island favorite, and Sonny the Elf has arrived to the resort one again for some Facebook fun you won’t want to miss.

Holiday - CPP

The newest Royal Sonesta, Chase Park Plaza, has captured the beauty of St. Louis in their own gingerbread village. The holiday revelry doesn’t stop there; Chase is the place to be every Saturday evening for carol singing, and The Preston features a French-inspired Reveillon dinner menu throughout the month of December.

Holiday - Coconut Grove

The holidays might not mean snow at Sonesta Coconut Grove Miami, but the lights and baubles displayed for all to see on their beautiful tree make the lobby feel merry and bright.


Royal Sonesta New Orleans is holiday-central in NOLA, with lights, trees, and greens around every corner. The Lighting of the Balconies officially kicked off the season at the hotel, Teddy Bear Tea is a favorite family tradition, and holiday meals like the traditional Revellion Dinner and Christmas brunch highlight the #Foodisart concept in an extra special way.


The halls are decked at Royal Sonesta Houston, which is a favorite shopping destination due to its Galleria location. It’s the perfect place to Shop and Stay when going on a Houston holiday shopping spree!

These are just a few scenes from the holiday season at Sonesta. For more, be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, or book your own visit during the Winter Sale.
