My most favorite hotel. August was hot and humid as always in August, We enjoyed a balcony on Bourbon street , across was a outdoor band we sat and listened till they stopped playing, It was very calm Covid made Nola a ghost town but we enjoyed the sweet breeze on the balcony and the food from near by open restaurants. Will only stay here when we come to Nola. Clean polite staff..

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed Aug 6-9 and had a great time! They are using all the resources at staying safe during this time. Must wear a mask in the lobby, elevator, and walking to room. This is my first time staying at the Royal Sonesta. We were celebrating my daughters 21st Birthday with a few of her friends. We had a courtyard view balcony. The pool was so much fun! We made friends from Okc and North Carolina. Bars are not open so we bought alcohol from Rouses on Royal and made drinks in our room while hanging out on our balcony. We all slept great, beds very comfortable. Had lunch at Desire, waiter and food was good. I would definitely stay here again!

Had a one night stop over in NOLA on a road trip. We chose Royal Sonesta, and didn’t expect much because it was very affordable, but took a chance due to the location. It was great!!! The hotel is beautiful. Staff is friendly. Valet was quick. Due to COVID not a lot was open around the area, but we still enjoyed our stay. If ever in New Orleans again, I will be staying here.

To be fair, we were there under covid travel times. The hotel was elegant but dated. The room we found not ready and they quickly fixed it up. The light in the bath tub was held by blue painters tape. The room smelled funky and there was no toilet paper so we had to ask. Recommend you request a room off of Bourbon Street because they have incessant drummers all day hammering away on plastic buckets. Location is very good, but there are probably better options for the price.
