4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Met all expectations, perfect location, and knowledgable, friendly, accommodating staff. First class. The room, while on the small side, was well appointed and the bed was great. There was bar noise from Bourbon St., but ear plugs solved that and it stopped by 2:00. In-room coffe would have been nice, though!

If you like the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street, this is a great choice. We booked a room with a balcony on Conte street and could sit outside and enjoy the music and crowds. The room was well appointed and had plenty of space. The bathroom had marble floors and counter tops. It was clean and the bed was... More

The Royal Sonesta was a great choice in New Orleans. The fabulous experience started with the staff at the front of the hotel who assist you out of the cab. Everyone is so friendly and so welcoming! The hospitality is un believable! The lobby is beautiful- fresh flowers that are gorgeous greet in as you walk in. All the staff... More

Treat yourself to a trip to the French Quarter in New Orleans and stay at this hotel. It's location in the Quarter can't be topped. Right on Bourbon St! We are natives now living in Long Island, NY that return each year for Mardi Gras and bring friends. No one in our group will even think of staying somewhere else.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Royal Sonesta. I did feel like it was a bit overpriced at $300/night but it's a great location, the employees are outstanding, and the lobby is beautiful. It rained a lot while we were there so we only got to experience the pool once, but it's nicely tucked into a courtyard. I wish... More

This is a great location right off of Bourbon Street and an oasis from the crazy! The breakfast and happy hour on the club floor were well worth it plus puts you on the top floor so it is quiet and had the most pleasant attendant. The only complaint is the beds were not the most comfortable. Thanks for a... More

We went down to Bourbon Street for the weekend and stayed at this hotel, and we loved it. We stayed one night here to have the full Bourbon Street experience. It's really nice to know your vehicle is in a secured parking garage while you are out experiencing the night life! I come to New Orleans every other month for... More

The Royal Sonesta is a great hotel located in the center of Bourbon Street. We had a Bourbon St. Balcony room and enjoyed it thoroughly. We visited during Easter and were pleasantly surprised to learn that the Chris Owens Easter Parade route came right down Bourbon St. in front of our balcony. We enjoyed the parade right from our room... More

This place is perfect for transporting you back to the lazy days of old New Orleans. It is easy to access. The pool bar is wonderful. the location is absolutely fantastic. Service is impeccable. The staff is friendly and the beds are heavenly. It has the New Orleans charm as it is in an enclosed courtyard. If you listen closely,... More
