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!

This hotel is perfectly positioned for walking around the French Quarter and right in the heart of the action of Mardi Gras. While all the carousing is going on on Bourbon Street, you can escape into your haven of peace, provided of course you DO NOT choose the balcony rooms that are on Conti, Bienville, Bourbon. Opt for the numerous... More

The Royal Sonesta staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and are to be commended for their engagement with customers. The Internet service was slow, even after paying for the upgraded speed. However, I wouldn't let that deter anyone from staying at the Royal Sonesta. The hotel is in the heart of New Orleans and the French Quarter, so you can... More

We took 3 rooms out and each one had issues. In their defense the... More

Truly a satisfying experience. Can't beat being located in the heart of the french quarter. The hotel has been perfectly renovated. The bedding was comfortable and the room well appointed. There as a jazz bar in the lobby and an open air bar too. I will come here again...definitely

This is a very nice property in the heart of the french quarter. Service is excellent; when our room turned out to have a defective shower, we were moved to another room for the rest of the stay and almost everything was perfect. I say almost because you need to watch for unexpected charges. When you have a guest visitor... More

I was traveling with the Krewe of Carrollton for Mardi Gras. This was my first time in New Orleans. Royal Sonesta let us check in early as a few rooms were ready. Our room was neat and clean and wonderfully decorated. The mattresses were truly dreamy, the linens were as soft as butter and tucked in perfectly. The Dining was... More

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.
