I have visited New Orleans countless times and stayed in many hotels in and near the French Quarter, but this was my first time at the Royal Sonesta. Despite arriving the morning after the Super Bowl, my deluxe king room was spotless and ready for my early arrival. The staff was all consistently friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful. Example: on my last day there the main lobby ladies room was temporarily closed for repairs. A maintenance man personally escorted me to the closest ballroom restroom and apologized profusely for the inconvenience. Another example: on my first day the housekeeper clearly noticed that I had a cold and was blowing my nose a lot. I returned to my room to find that she had placed extra boxes of tissues in the bathroom, on the desk, and by my bed.
The only warning I would give is that the main entrance is on Bourbon Street-with all that entails. Several seedy Hustler and strip clubs are nearby. Travelers with children may wish to stay elsewhere.
I highly recommend this hotel and would welcome the chance to stay there again.
