My husband and I stayed at the Royal Sonesta for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful- a stark contrast from Bourbon Street! The pool area is a nice quiet haven if you want to get away from the crowds outside the hotel. Our room was on the 4th floor, overlooking the pool and even had an exterrior door for easy access to the pool deck. The hotel has a jazz bar (live music every night) and coffee shop in the lobby and is in a great location for access to Canal St, the casino and Riverwalk. Room service is expensive (spent $45 on breakfast that would have been $7 at IHOP).
The wedding took place in the courtyard and banquet room at the hotel. It was so convienent for guests to be able to stay in the same place as the wedding. The courtyard is on the small side, but the ceremony turned out beautiful and very intamate. The food at the reception was delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves.
