Just spent a relaxing week at the Royal Sonesta on Bourbon Street, November 2013. We had stayed here before but had forgotten how nice it was. From the minute you walk in until you leave you are attended to from roses on the bed when you check in to turn down service in the evenings and delightful chocolate treats. Rooms are spacious and kept spotless with nice quality bed linens. Towels could be upgraded, first day 2 of the towels were nice but went down from there! Sitting on the balconies in the evenings is wonderful. All of staff were pleasant and helpful. Would be nice to have a coffee maker in room for late night tea or coffee, even though during the day PJ's in the lobby has excellent coffee. Can't wait to go back!
