Hotel Accommodations


At the end of Summer 2023, the Sonesta began a mult-imillion dollar renovation.  All of the guest rooms will be completed in time to host our June 2024 conference.  Come and enjoy the charm and warmth of one of the finest hotels in Hilton Head Island. Nestled along the coast with stunning views and lush landscapes the award-winning Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island is a premier destination for getaways, gatherings or business.  Walk along the beach, or stroll through the verdant, tropical gardens. Dine at one of the multiple restaurants, but not before wading into the zero-entry lagoon swimming pool. Pamper your body and senses with a trip to the Arum Spa. Or venture outside to find some of the best activities on the island at your disposal from golf, tennis and kayaking to shopping, bike riding and exploring the natural wonders of Hilton Head.
