Meetings and events are back, and we have loved reconnecting with colleagues, friends, and past guests while also meeting new ones and introducing Sonesta to a growing number of destinations.

The past 18 months have brought changes to the way we meet, but they’ve also created new opportunities. Hybrid meetings mean that attendees who aren’t able to travel can still participate in meetings and events. We’ve seen our hotels adapt to the challenges by not only building in social distancing for in-person attendees but also by working with AV and production teams to really bring events to life on-screen, benefitting everyone who participates. Our primary partners in audio visual support at each hotel are more than ready to step in and create the “movie magic” necessary to support this alternate use of meeting and event space.

Higher health and safety standards are also part of the way we meet. From enhanced meeting room and public space cleaning using Electrostatic Misting technology to serving individually-wrapped meals or snacks, we’ve found ways to keep guests safe while also allowing them to enjoy the standard of service and artfully created food and beverage we are known for.

Sonesta is also the first hotel company to be Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED with Forbes Travel Guide – an important industry designation to receive – across its managed hotel portfolio, demonstrating Sonesta’s commitment to the health and safety of its guests and team members. Learn more about this comprehensive verification process and how it helps to ensure you Stay Safe with Sonesta.
