I selected an interior room with a balcony, and it was excellent. Royal Sonesta offers an Oasis from the mayhem of Bourbon Street while the location ensures near-landmark status and immediate access to the French Quarter. we were no more than a seven minute walk from any of the major sights and attractions.

With an outstanding staff, beautiful and comfortable rooms, and the best location, this is the hotel to stay in! Walk out of the lobby straight onto Bourbon. Room was clean as could be, quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. With a PJ's coffee inside, and a quaint courtyard, you can't beat this spot. Five stars ALL AROUND!

I was leery about staying on Bourbon St. I thought it would be too busy and loud. However, I couldn't have chosen a better hotel! High end finishings, excellent service, and perfect location. For a peaceful night's sleep, choose a room facing the inner courtyard. Everyone was very professional and friendly. However, a few staff members stood out: Sesh, Tony,... More

The RS New Orleans is an oasis on Bourbon St. We stayed 4 nights last week. We were greeted by the welcoming doormen and fragrant, cool lobby on a hot and steamy NO August day. We stayed on club level -7th floor in a modern, newly renovated room. Walk-in shower, L'occitane bath products, soft towels and perks of club level... More

Dear bourboncountryUSA, Your detailed review is so fabulous, and the way you describe the luxuries of your luxurious room, one might wonder why you ever stepped outside, though we’re certainly pleased you did! Based on your account, it sounds as if you made the best of your time in New Orleans, with stops at Desire Oyster Bar, Frenchmen Street, Jackson... 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.
