A multimillion-dollar renovation has finished up at the 400-room Royal Sonesta Boston. Among the areas upgraded were 200 of the guest rooms and the fitness center; the lobby has been completely reconfigured with the new Studio coffee shop and the new Motif lobby cocktail lounge. The new Longfellow Suites with waterfront views and a terrace on the Charles River have added 2,100 square feet of event space; also appended to the meeting space is the 3,000-square-foot Riverside Terrace. The property offers the ArtBar restaurant, featuring seasonal American cuisine, as well as Restaurant Dante, where chef Dante DeMagistris serves dishes with modern Italian influences. The Royal Sonesta Boston has 26,000 square feet of meetings space.
