Every one of our hotels has something unique and different to offer, each having a sense of place while also reflecting the standards and service Sonesta guests have come to know and love.
When it comes to meetings, planners can look forward to options that are outside-the-box and outside of the hotel at many of our properties. From farm-to-table menus and clambakes to outdoor receptions and poolside networking, our teams work the season and sense-of-place into meetings and events, making for truly memorable experiences.
Take the networking or dining portion of your meeting outside to The Courtyard, which offers 3,000 square feet of outdoor space where your guests can enjoy farm-to-fork fare in the heart of Texas Hill Country.
