We stayed in the Royal Sonesta in early November. Had a small balcony on the 2nd floor of the building in Conti Street. The hotel, as most are, is very old. The rooms were updated and that's what mattered most to us. No coffee maker in the room was an unwelcomed discovery, but just downstairs was PJ's, which I'm sure is why they choose not to place coffee in the room, but, PJ's was fine. My husband and I really need that cup of coffee to go out and get that cup of coffee, but we managed.
The beds were beyond comfortable. Best nights sleep in ages. Very hard to leave that bed but will all NOLA has to see and do, we forced ourselves.
The hotel had one bank of 2 elevators but even with just 2, we never waited long for one.
We didn't eat at the hotel because we were out and about but I heard comments that people enjoiyed their food. Great choice for hotels if you want to be in the thick of the Bourbon St action!
