Why Work Here?

International growing Extended-Stay Hotel - Small enough to know you, Large enough to serve you!

In 1937, real estate mogul A.M. “Sonny” Sonnabend pooled his resources with other investors to purchase the Preston Beach Hotel in a tiny Massachusetts seaside town. Thanks to the unrivalled service and hospitality he provided to every guest, his focus moved from real estate to hospitality. Excellent service and authentic experiences became the foundation for what would become one of the first U.S.-based international hotels – and they remain a cherished tradition Sonesta has been honoring for over 80 years. Since its founding, Sonesta has built, owned, managed and designed hotels throughout the world. Our mission has remained the same: to provide our guests an authentic quality experience and treat all who walk through our doors with integrity. We embrace our decades-long heritage of unrivalled service as we stay in tune with today’s traveler. And we do so with integrity and passion. Today, Sonesta comprises more than 65 properties in 7 countries. We’re in many major U.S. destinations – Baltimore, Boston, Miami, Hilton Head, Houston, New Orleans and Philadelphia, to name a few – and in some of the world’s most exotic locales, like Sint Maarten, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Egypt. And our portfolio continues to grow with even more locations that will celebrate local cultures and reaffirm Sonesta's commitment to authenticity and genuine hospitality.
