Austin Food + Wine FestivalSonesta Bee Cave Austin is just a short drive from all that Austin has to offer, including this annual food and wine event that features Texas barbecue over a live fire. Once you’ve had your food fill, relax on Sonesta Bee Cave’s rooftop with a glass of Hill Country wine and enjoy its beautiful sunsets.


Taste of Chicago – Stay at one of our newest hotels, Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront, and chow down on local specialties like deep dish pizza, hot dogs, and pierogi while enjoying live music. Carnival rides at the event make it fun for the whole family, and no entry fee – just strips of tickets for tasting – make it easy to do on a budget.

New Orleans Wine & Food Experience – A stay at Royal Sonesta New Orleans is a food and wine getaway in itself, with its two restaurants, cafe, and jazz club, but New Orleans Wine and Food Experience is an extra-indulgent time to visit. New Orleans is known for its chefs, and during this event, they showcase some of their best work for visitors and locals to enjoy.
