Royal Sonesta Boston completed the renovation of 28,000 square feet of meeting and event space that now has contemporary furnishings while showcasing views of the Charles River and the Boston skyline.

The new 2,100 square foot Longfellow meeting space has its own Charles River-facing terrace.

New silver and blue-hued carpeting complement the matte silver walls.

In addition to the newly renovated function and event space, the hotel has 400 guestrooms, updated public space, two restaurants with expanded outdoor dining space, a new coffee and pastry shop and an indoor pool with seasonal sundeck.
