We stayed 3 nights for a wedding and couldn't have asked for a better place. Everything was clean, lobby, halls, rooms. Entire staff was professional and very courteous. We needed scissors for getting some of the wedding things done and housekeeping was there within 5 minutes. Halls were quiet during the day and night. I will definitely be staying here... More

Perfect location and as you would expect from a fine hotel. Old style with modern conveniences. Can't beat it for a central location , close to street car stops and to nearly everything in French Quarter. Well worth the tab.

The Royal Sonesta is a wonderful historic hotel right on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. The hotel is very elegant and the staff was very attentive. Our room overlooked the courtyard and pool which I would suggest as it was very quiet. The room and public areas were all spotless. We got to the hotel before checkin time and... More

A friend from California was going to join my stay in N.O and would arrive later the same afternoon. When I was finally given a room (which had been for double beds requested in the early spring) it had... More

We spent 5 days in this hotel for a conference and my first disappointment wasn't really the hotel's fault - our cab couldn't drive to the door because the street was pedestrian only and we had to walk from the corner of the block dragging our suitcases. Not really sure what the answer to this problem might be but it... More

Beautiful hotel, best location, such great staff. But during a 4 night stay our room was serviced once. The room was empty each day for at least 5 hours. There is a Privacy door tag but no service room tag. So when we were out by 10 and back at 3 and AGAIN no service, it was a disappointment. I... More

I wanted to like this hotel. I had seen so many pictures, and on my first trip to New Orleans, I wanted to stay here. Even though many of my friends warned me away from staying right IN the French Quarter, I still wanted to stay here. Okay so let me start by saying that the staff there was SUPERB!... More

Where else but Bourbon Street will you find a Four Star hotel just down from 2 strip clubs??? This hotel is the perfect location to all the bars, clubs, restaurants, and the action! The hotel itself it very old New Orleans. The balcony, the court yard, the lobby, it's what you think a hotel in New Orleans should look like.... More
