I had high hopes for this hotel based on the reviews. Upon walking into the lobby I was impressed. The lobby was what you imagined New Orleans to be and it smelled great (unlike Bourbon St.). The staff was okay, no one went out of their way but no one was disrespectful either. The room was just average, cleanliness was... More

Wonderful time in New Orleans. Mickey, our concierge, took care of my large group and made sure our stay was as fulfilling as possible. She took our relatively complicated situation and easily turned it into a fantastic experience. The place is beautiful, right on Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter. Fantastic experience would definitely recommend to anyone.... More

Terrific place to stay when in New Orleans. Conveniently located, comfortable rooms and excellent amenities. Did brunch here once before on a visit to NOLA and decided at that time it was the place I wanted to stay on my next visit.

Absolutely EVERYTHING about this hotel is positively A1 Perfect. From the minute we arrived until we (reluctantly) left, everyone was most gracious, polite and accommodating. Our room was brilliant, the staff were fantastic and most helpful and friendly. The hotel is well placed on Bourbon Street to be in the very heart of all you would want to experience in... More

Sonesta N.O. is a great place to stay; right on Bourbon, good staff, great Jazz lounge, good price deals on balconies over Bourbon, a quick walk to all the important places and sites, and importantly the dining experience of the Revolution Dining Bar is the best, fun fun.

I booked this hotel based on reviews from many sites. This hotel had the old world charm with luxurious amenities. We got an inside room as we did not want the noise. It was quiet the entire week. The men and women who work at the royal sonesta are tops in customer service. The restaurants attached to the hotel were... More

This was our first time staying at the Royal Sonesta and it will not be our last. This place is truly a gem located right in the heart of Bourbon St. Literally step out the front door and you are in the heart of all the action. We requested a room in the back of the hotel away from Bourbon... More

We got a last minute deal on this hotel, which is right on Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter, and it was well worth it. The hotel is very grand and all of the staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. Because we have four little girls, we got an interior balcony room which on the 4th floor,... More

The Royal Sonesta is a luxurious oasis in the heart of the French Quarter. From the moment that we walked in, we were very impressed with the hotel. Staff members are very polished and welcoming. The wifi isn't the best, but it's free. We requested an interior room and we never heard a sound from the partying on Bourbon street.... 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.
