My husband and I had an amazing time here. This will be our 1st hotel choice going forward. Every employee was exceptional and went above & beyond. We loved people watching off our Bourbon balcony.

This is good hotel, unless you get the upgrade room/suit...rooms are too small. The ambiance is great and the ideal location for Bourbon Street. Great coffee bar and shops. Parking is tight and Internet is not good for business as it fades in and out.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The room was very pleasant and the staff were attentive. We really appreciated the 2 ladies who staffed the club room on Nov. 16th & 17th. They were very personable and attentive to the guests. All in all we enjoyed Desire Seafood and Oyster Bar, Irvin Mayfields... More

We stayed in a 7th floor suite. The service was impeccable. The location is the best around, right in the middle of all of the action of Bourbon Street. My only complaint was our jacuzzi tub did not work and the sink stopper was broken. Everything was beautiful!

Throughout the whole hotel, our team is dedicated to consistently providing such “impeccable” service. We apologize for the disappointment you experienced with the Jacuzzi and stopper in your room.

Stayed 5 days at the Royal Sonesta; right on Bourbon Street! This is as close as you can get to ground zero in the French Quarter. Bars, restaurants, strip joints, the good, the bad, the ugly all within walking distance. Never hailed a cab until it was time to fly out! I always felt safe, even at night (but watch... More
