I arrived a couple of hours prior to check-in time. As requested, I gave them my cell number so they could call me when the room was ready . However, when I checked with the front desk about a hour later, I was told it was ready. To avoid further disappointment I didn't even bother asking how long it had... More

The Royal Sonesta is by far the best hotel in New Orleans; especially in or near the French Quarter. The rooms are outstanding with great air conditioning. The staff is out of this world when it comes to service and friendliness. The hotel is spotless, run well and secure. I will never stay in any other hotel in New Orleans.... More

Recently stayed one night with my wife at the end of our trip to New Orleans. The location is right in the heart of Bourbon Street and the convenience is really hard to beat. The property has that classic French Quarter flavor and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. I've read reviews about people having a problem with noise... More

386.00 a night got us put ( after a 3 hour wait) in a room with a dirty greasy chair, peeling wallpaper, air vent hanging off wall, paint peeling in bathroom and moldy dirty ceiling. They did move us to another room which was nicer but included a clogged sink, non working hair dryer and a housekeeping staff that ignores... More

Once again, the Royal Sonesta, New Orleans was wonderful. It never fails. After staying there for nearly 40 years, I am always amazed that the hotel feels like home! Never would consider staying anywhere else.

One word for this place- CLASSY. We got in a bit early so we checked in and left our bags with the staff and went out into the French Quarter exploring. We got back around 4pm and our bags were in our room and the room was perfect. We got a free bottle of champagne and my wife was happy... More

I stayed at the Royal Sonesta for two nights as part of a conference. My room was on the second floor on Bourbon street and had a balcony. I don't have any complaints about the noise because come on...what do you expect...it's Bourbon Street... but if you are not a free spirit and willing to go with the flow, you... More

We stayed here during mardi gras. Perfect location on Bourbon street. Close to restaurants and all the action. The rooms were beautiful and luxurious. The staff were polite and helpful. Pricey compared to other options but totally worth it. Parking is available at the hotel, very convenient. Just trying to drive back to the hotel during parade hours, it's nearly... More
