My family and friends spend New Year's 2019 at the Royal Sonesta Boston. Everyone had an amazing time, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect. The kids (9-11 years old) enjoyed the pool, Art Bar dining and room service.

Are childminding services available through the hotel?
I did not travel with kids. I saw no signage for a day care. However, when my kids were young various hotels we stayed in were able to supply sitters at cost. I suggest you call RSB to learn how they can help you.
