I have already described my breakfast experience in my Royal Sonesta hotel review. Suffice to say it was wonderful. I loved everything about it start to finish and plan to return soon.

Tucked inside the Sonesta - this is a terrific, friendly hotel bar. The services and facilities are spot-on. Drinks, options are excellent as well. Well Done.

The food here was fine (crab poboys on the lunch menu is great!), but the service is not super fast, so plan for that. At night, there was only one bartender which wasn't enough when two wedding parties arrived. Also, an order of wings just...More
