In addition to the above winners, we also received an Honorable Mention Award for Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore.


The Honorable Mention Awards are special in that they are the result of write-ins from Convention South readers. There were so many write-in votes for Royal Sonesta Baltimore that they earned this award. Our commitment to hospitality and great service  in Baltimore has not gone unnoticed!
