I have stayed at this Sonesta Suites for almost 5 days. This is my very first visit at this hotel in Columbia Maryland. The Lady who check me in did not speak, even tho I said good evening. Nor did she smile, and most of all, she did not give me correct information regarding payment. That was frustrating to me....

I've stayed at this property multiple times including recently and no matter when I am there, it ALWAYS seems to be a Plumbing issue. Either no water at all Or a Busted hot water heater in which guests must do without warm or hot showers. Sometimes the water is even cut off so no type of bath or shower can...

Hotel was nice, clean and updated. Was placed in room ending in odd numbers- 01-17 - which faces east- 50 feet away from Highway 100- felt like I slept on the shoulder of the highway was so loud. Should have changed rooms but was too late in evening.

Okay. The PROS, the suite was nice and clean. The hotel was in a good location, quiet, and the price was right. However, you might want to take ear plugs because the heating/cooling unit is in a locked closet in the bedroom area and if you turn it on it can bother you rattling throughout the night; if your a...

My family of four and our puppy stayed at Sonesta for 3 weeks while our new home was being finished. We had an amazing stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a home away from home. The staff was incredible!

Stayed two nights for Irish dance fest. The hotel is very neat and surprisingly big. The lobby and breakfast area are nicely decorated and are a pleasure to stay. The suite was very convenient, with sofa, kitchen and dining area in one room and bedroom in separate one. Because it was divided in two rooms the suite did not feel...

Sonesta ES Suites is TERRIBLE! 1. For starters check your hotel bill. I booked on line with a confirmed reservation at one price and when I arrived at the hotel they had upped the charge by $25 per night more. 2. We stayed in a two bedroom / bath suite however, ONLY one bathroom had hot water. We notified the...

We selected this based on the previous positive reviews on TripAdvisor, and they were right!
