Verified Reviews of Royal Sonesta Boston

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Recommendable Hotel "
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Hotel is really good, the location is excellent with two really good Bars inside the Hotel and the service is outstanding. Everyone one working there is awesome. The pool is pretty cold and that is the only "bad" thing of the experience, but with no doubts I recommend the hotel.
