In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonesta International Hotels Corporation is introducing flexible attrition policies for group meetings and events and added value in the form of socially distanced food and beverage. As this unprecedented situation is ever evolving, Sonesta wants to give its clients confidence in booking groups and meetings, highlighting the roll out of Stay Safe with Sonesta program.
Meetings and events impacted previously by the pandemic, such as those which were larger than the CDC’s guidelines of group sizes, may now rebook before the end of the year with confidence that Sonesta will meet their needs with flexibility and creativity in the form of two new promotions and the introduction of Stay Safe with Sonesta throughout the US. (Both promotions are offered on new business booked by 12/30/20 that travels by 4/30/21.)
Group planners have a new option when taking advantage of these new flexible focused offers in the US. For rooms-only group blocks, Sonesta hotels in the US will provide $25-100 food and beverage credit per room (discount varies based on number of rooms on peak night), simplifying the detail planning for the group. This credit allows your attendees to take meals on their own terms and based on their comfort level (i.e. grab and go, room delivery, or seated meal in the hotel restaurant.) Flexible attrition terms up to 100% are available. *
Meeting planners will find Sonesta full service hotels ready to accommodate their meetings and events in pandemic friendly redesigned meeting rooms and event cleanliness standards with confidence. Two-day meetings will include free lunch pandemic friendly socially distanced lunch for the group and 3+ day meetings will include lunch on two days. All meeting guest will be provided with a VIP amenity that will include mask, wipes & hand sanitizer for use during events.**
