Older hotel, high quality staff, great location if you want to be right in the middle if all the "action". Just make sure that you want to be in the middle of the "action" before booking. Our stay was one night.....we had a great time, had a balcony that allowed us to look down on Bourbon Street. We enjoyed the... More

The room was always clean, the staff was very friendly, and we felt the overall value was great considering the prime location & amenities! We... More

My disappointments include the fact that we weren't told that reservations are recommended for the restaurant. The... More

This place is awesome- pricey but worth it. The location's, restaurant and bar are all worth visiting-- it is very impressive and you feel taken care of. the garden is beautiful and a must. Get a window room its worth it but not on Bourbon unless you are a heavy sleeper.

My husband & I travel to New Orleans a few times a year for close to home, weekend getaways. This was our first time staying at the Royal Sonesta and I have to say it is now on the top of our list to revisit. The landscaping in the courtyard was absolutely breathtaking. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly.... More

I have stayed at a few places on Bourbon, but usually choose a budget hotel since I'm rarely in the room. However that gets old after a while and we decided to upgrade to the Sonesta. The staff was very nice and I enjoyed breakfast in the oyster bar attached to the hotel.

Although we didn't spend much time in the hotel, it is in a great location smack in the middle of bourbon street action, walking distance to the old market and numerous outstanding restaurants. The bed was comfortable, the hotel was clean, and the service was extremely friendly.
