This is a beautiful hotel in the French Quarter (so great walking distance to many, many things). The staff were friendly, the room was cozy but comfortable and modern looking. It even has a pool! I definitely recommend.

We have been staying at the Royal Sonesta for over 20 years. We've seen the ups and downs and the recent remodeling of rooms. We always get a balcony room on Bourbon Street. it is loud all night long so if you don't like the energy don't stay on the Bourbon Street side...we stay there because when we are done... More

This is now our 4th time staying at this property. It's our definite "go to" place to stay when we visit once a year to get our NOLA fix. Get a room with a balcony on one of the side streets, Bienville or Conti. They are quieter. We will be back in 2017.

Upon check in I was offered an upgrade to the club level. I wasn't sure I would enjoy it but was glad I opted for it. The concierge was helpful but what really stood out were the staff in the lounge. Patricia and the others were very knowledgeable of the local area and eager to assist with plans. The food... More

I was in New Orleans from September 15-18 and I booked my stay at the Royal Sonesta because I liked the location and the pictures I saw. When you arrive on Bourbon Street, a lot of the buildings are preserved for architecture, such as this hotel, however when you enter, it's like you entered a whole different world. If I... More

As you discovered, PJ’s offers everything from fragrant roasts to delectable pastries and we’re thrilled that... More

We checked in after 12am but she was so welcoming it felt like 12pm. She gave us information on local resturants, upcoming concerts and information concerning our conference. First... 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.
