As Hispanic Heritage Month winds down, we are looking back at how it started for us at Sonesta. Our corporate office and hotels around the US celebrated with festivities, food, and more.

Hispanic Heritage Month, which began in 1968 as just a week-long celebration, celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of people whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, and South America.

Did you know that 26% of the Sonesta workforce is comprised of people with Hispanic backgrounds? Over 1,800 of our employees, including over 200 managers, 70 directors and department heads bring their rich Hispanic heritage to our team. Check out the video above to learn more and to meet just a few of them and to learn more about their roles in our company and their thoughts on Hispanic Heritage Month.
