You get the royal treatment

Would recommend Tue, Jan 4, 2011
The Royal Sonesta is akin to staying at a Ritz Carlton in terms of room size and quality of furnishings. Very clean and up to date. Bed and linens were very comfortable and bathroom was impeccable with Italian products. But do yourself a favor and ask for a quiet room overlooking the courtyard or the other internal patio. If you get a street room, the drunks on Bourbon will keep you up.

Attractions

Walk to Jackson Square and see St. Louis Cathedral, then Cafe du Monde for beignets, then walk the entire French Market which borders Cafe du Monde. Be sure to visit the shops on Royal if you like artwork. Be sure to buy your morning coffee just across Bourbon Street at Cafe Beignet. Refills are $0.60 each and the breakfast there is delicious too. Coffee in Sonesta is expensive.

Amazing!

Would recommend Mon, Jan 3, 2011
My husband & I went to New Orleans for our third wedding anniversary. I am so happy that I chose Royal Sonesta! Everything was wonderful! The room was very clean, quiet & the staff were great. I loved all the little details that made our stay special too. Fresh flowers everywhere, turn down service at night with chocolates left on the bed & robes! Everything was just wonderful! We didn't even have to leave the hotel because they had so much to do there. The "Desire" restaurant was amazing too!

Dining

Great location

Would recommend Sun, Jan 2, 2011
The location is fabulous if you like the craziness that is Bourbon St. Everything in the French Quarter is walkable, and just a couple of blocks from the trolleys on St. Charles and Canal. We were prepared to deal with loud noise from Bourbon St. during New Year's Eve weekend, but were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the room was. Only complaints: gym is pretty small and we had the unpleasant experience of getting stuck in the elevator, but not for too terribly long. Overall, a great stay.

Very Nice Hotel...But Staff Idifferent

Would recommend Sat, Jan 1, 2011
The hotel was very nice (with the exception of the bathroom in our room which was very tired and small) and in a great location in the Quarter. My biggest criticism is that the staff was not very customer service-oriented or friendly (with the exception of Russell, the Concierge). Overall, I would rate the hotel/experience a 3.5 stars.

Dining

I was very impressed with Iris Restaurant on Decatur.

Royal Sonesta Great

Would recommend Fri, Dec 31, 2010
The hotel was immaculate and decorated nicely for the holiday. Located at the Corner of Conti and Borubon Streets, it was perfectly located and quiet. The staff was very accommmodating--we had an "R" club room with a concierge and she/they were great. I would have liked a little more variety in the breakfast/evening hors d'ouevres, but the quality was good and the room was comfortable.

Nightlife hint

Step off Bourbon for the more interesting bars. Don't be put off by the plethora of adult joints--pretty low-key, actually.

great place, bad service, no sleep

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 30, 2010
The Royal Sonesta is a very beautiful hotel on Bourbon street and by all appearances it should be a great place to stay. During check-in I knew we did not want to have a room on Bourbon street and the clerk also suggested that we stay in a room off the streets. This is were it all went bad; the room we were given was adjoining the work out room. Yes there were hours of operation but it opened at 6:00am which meant there was no sleeping in and we had to listen to the sounds of the work out room all day. We requested to be moved and they put us 4 rooms off of Bourbon st and told use we might get some street noise? They failed to tell us the bar right out side our window blasts heavy bass music until 4:00am in the morning. I went to the front desk and was told "there is no guarantee any of there rooms would be quite and I was handed 2 sets of ear plugs. The concierge was rude, insulting, and did not have time for us. Comments includes "I am going to make this simple so even you can find the restaurant" and "if you want complicated you will have to get in you car and drive" The door man was the only person that took the time to explain were several good restaurants were and was very personable. After 4 nights of pounding music until 4:00am not being able to order one movie to drowned out the droning noise since all we would get is snow on the TV. The wife and I were ready to leave and never return. Checking out was another wonderful experience with a desk clerk willing to ask how our stay was but not really wanting to hear what I had to say with comments like "Well Welcome to the French quarter" I have stayed in the French quarter before and I have never been treated so poorly and with so little disregarded to the customer. We will return to the french Quarter but never to the Royal Sonesta

THEY DO EVERYTHING RIGHT

Would recommend Fri, Oct 22, 2010
THE ROYAL SONESTA WAS PURE LUXURY. WE UP GRADED TO ABALCONY ROOM OVER LOOKING THE POOL. THE ROOM, WITH ITS FRENCH DOORS LEADING TO THE POOL WAS BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL. WITH BURBON STREET JUST OUT THE LOBBYDOORS YOU COULD NOT HEAR THE ALL NIGHT PARTY SCENEBUT WHEN YOU WANTED TO JOIN IN YOU JUST WALKED OUTTHE FRONT DOOR. SERVICE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER.WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK. [...]
