You can't beat the location of the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans' French Quarter. Located on the upper end of Bourbon Street it's not in the loudest section of the Quarter, so it's a good location for small conferences as well as families that might have worries about some aspects of Bourbon Street. We were there for three nights and never had to take our car out of the parking lot - everything is an easy walk from the hotel and the hotel's pool is a nice refresher after any of the many walking tours New Orleans has to offer. Free wi-fi is a nice benefit however the $30 a night for parking is a bit high if you are NOT taking your car in and out frequently.
The Concierge service is top notch - they know all of the attractions as well as the restaurants and can secure you reservations (most of the time) at eateries from fine dining to excellent local creole dining that is family-friendly where foodies can enjoy a very good meal in shorts and casual dress.
If you don't get a King the beds can be a bit on the small side, but the service and staff are excellent. The Royal Sonesta should always be considered when visiting New Orleans.
