Wonderful Easter weekend in the Big Easy...Royal Sonesta with Bourbon Street view was in the middle of all the action. Had another fabulous dinner at Louisiana Bistro, attended a beautiful Easter Vigil Mass at St. Louis Cathedral and had a lovely Easter Jazz brunch at Arnaud's. Finished everything off with bar hopping on Bourbon!

This is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans. The hotel is upscale and the service is excellent. It is close to all the Bourbon Street nightlife. Desire, the moderately priced restaurant, is a great place to have local cuisine. I highly recommend the shrimp creole.

Beautiful, comfy, the best location ever! You never have to drive anywhere! Everything is in walking distance. Be prepared for high taxes and parking is $39.00 per night for hotel guests. The Desire Oyster Bar is an awesome choice for food! You will not be disappointed!

I frequently visit New Orleans both for business and leisure. I tend to stay at a different hotel on each visit. Our Easter weekend visit to The Royal Sonesta was by far my favorite hotel stay in NOLA! The location was perfectly centrally located, and the staff was above and beyond kind and friendly! I would absolutely recommend the Royal... More

Fabulous hotel in an unbeatable location. Easy yet secure Access to Bourbon Street. They only let hotel guests in after dark. You can be close to the party while still having a beautifully quiet room to come back to. The Royal Sonesta offers Elegant yet modern interiors that stay true to New Orleans. Great pool and fabulous restaurants. You have... More

We stayed there for two nights. The hotel if first class, as is the service. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed and pillows were super comfortable. It's in the heart of the French Quarter, so everything there is easy to walk to.

If you want to be in the heart of the French Quarter and have an amazing hotel, this is the place. From the moment I arrived the hotel folks could not do enough good things for me. I was here because of a business meeting but would stay here with my wife.

If you want to avoid a rental car and be close to the action of the French Quarter, yet want a quiet, classy accommodation--the Royal Sonesta is a perfect spot. Excellent service, deluxe rooms, and good dining and bar spots both in the hotel and nearby.

This is our second visit to the Royal Sonesta New Orleans. We have stayed on the R Club level for both visits and have been very pleased with the room, the attention to detail, the R Club Lounge amenities and the staff. Darin, the R Club manager and Kristen, concierge are a pleasure. They are friendly, helpful and efficient. The... More
