Every year our Sonesta leadership team gets together at one of our hotels for a week of learning, sharing, teamwork, food, and some fun with colleagues. The 2019 annual conference, themed #GoBeyondatSonesta, was held at Royal Sonesta Boston, and among other things, it included a #CultureofCaring initiative to help Boston’s homeless and presentation of our annual awards.

The highly anticipated Hotel of the Year Awards are chosen based on Employee Engagement, Financial Performance, and Guest Experience, and this year, the winners were. . .


Full Service Hotel of the Year – Sonesta Bee Cave Austin

We were excited to congratulate John Dallas, Eric Wimbush, Courtney Briggs and the whole team on their win. Guests love the warm Hill Country welcome they’ve come to expect, along with the hotel’s location, food and liquid art, and amazing views. 



The team at Sonesta ES Suites Princeton took home the extended stay Hotel of the Year during our leadership conference. The award was accepted by General Manager Bobbie Lal and Area Director of Sales James Ales. If you’re visiting the Princeton, NJ, make yourself at home at the hotel, which is ideally located and offers a sense of community to everyone who checks in.
