Wonderful stay during Mardi Gras : Fat Tuesday was over the top, as expected, we brought ear plugs and night masks and definitely needed them. At check in, the attendant offered to move our room to the back of the hotel where there would be less noise but we weren't interested - we knew what to expect and were prepared.... More

I've heard about this hotel for years and finally got a chance to visit. We came down to celebrate my wife's birthday, At check in, the desk clerk gave us a discounted rate on a room overlooking Bourbon St with a balcony. I should have known there was a slight problem when he gave us earplugs. The room was comfortable... More

My two girlfriends and I came to NOLA for the last two days of Mardi Gras, February 8th, 9th and left the 10th. We were worried that it would be dirty because it was right on Bourbon street in the middle of everything but we were so wrong! It is a beautiful hotel with such a friendly staff. Ryan at... More

Attended Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse one evening. The atmosphere was comfortable and the jazz was first-rate. Drinks were well-prepared. Service was efficient and unobtrusive. Great venue overall. I did not stay at the Hotel as a guest.

Great location! We had a room on Bourbon St and it wasn't too noisy but if you want quiet, request a backside room. Bourbon St on Friday and Saturday nights can get a bit loud.

Every trip to New Orleans is an adventure packed with new experiences. After staying at the Sonesta for 35 plus years, I can honestly say there is no hotel in the world that I look more forward to returning. The attention to detail that the staff provides is beyond any expectation. Location is terrific. Can't wait for my next visit!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
