Love it! In the middle of everything. If you love nightlife this is perfect! Me and my wife love the atmosphere and the lovely staff. Bars and restaurants just round the corner. And the music on bourbon Street never stops.

We Love the place but somehow this time it seemed like just another place to stay not the place you have to stay. The staff was ok. The room was a little dirty. And PJ's coffee shop was a four day disaster. I sure for the memories we will stay there again and I still would recommend it but it... More

I just love everything about them! They're staff is fantastic, the food is top notch from Revolution and Desire, to PJ's and Room Service! I love their pool by day and a great cocktail with some smoking jazz at Mayfields by evening! I really can't say enough good things about the Royal Sonesta New Orleans! I've stayed in major hotel...

My mom and I stayed here and loved it! The courtyard was absolutely gorgeous. The rooms were lovely and the staff was impeccable. We had drinks in the bar and listened to live jazz and had an amazing time. The location is right on Bourbon and very convenient to everything. I would definitely stay again and have recommended it to... More

We stayed at the Royal Sonesta a week before the Mardi Gras festivities were to begin on a whirlwind girls weekend. The hotel location right on Bourbon was great for us as we could walk to many of the great spots in the Quarter and had easy access to the nightlife. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy....

Had a nice time. Food at the conference was ok (provided by the hotel). Definitely worth looking into eating off site. Revolution is a bit pricey. Hotel bar was ok as well. PJs coffee is always a crowd pleasure, PLUS they serve bloody marys and mimosas. . . . .

I would recommend this hotel to anyone holding a conference or in town for fun. It is located on Bourbon Street which makes going out very convenient. Since I was part of... More

I was at the Royal Sonesta for a conference last week. The service was nice at the hotel. My phone had a hard time staying connected to the WiFi and the food served as ok at the conference. Love that the PJs in the hotel serves mimosas and bloody marys.

I've stayed at this hotel on many occasions, it's one of my personal favorites in New Orleans! Always a great experience, a bit loud on the street side during any festival but always a really great time! I highly recommend it to all of my friends.

I held a sales meeting for 87 people at the Royal Sonesta. On the highlights side the rooms were great and well set up. We couldn't hear other meetings going on which can be a problem with multiple rooms. The staff were very professional and helpful from the doormen to AV to catering. This is a very solid choice for... More
