Overview

A traditional boutique-style hotel, the Royal Sonesta New Orleans opened in 1969 and is comprised of 483 guest rooms, several eateries, tropical courtyards and fountains, and an amazing collection of fine art. The hotel boasts a staggering 7,000 original works throughout the property, including pieces by Andy Warhol, Jan Dibbets and Roy Lichtenstein.

The Royal Sonesta's artwork showcase is part of Sonesta International Hotels Corporation's mission of caring for tradition and communities.

The building's facade was designed with an 1830s feel in mind, and the Royal Sonesta sits on "Desire" corner, one of the most photographed spots on the French Quarter.

PJ's Coffee, a local favorite, is located on the first floor for a traditional cup of piping hot cafe au lait.

We go to N.O. regularly and stay here when we can. The staff always takes good care of us and we have not ever had a room we weren't completely satisfied with. Can't wait to go again

Great location and excellent service.

Would recommend Mon, Dec 14, 2015
This was my first trip to New Orleans and I had no idea how important the location of the hotel was. The hotel was within walking distance of all but one of the places I visited. Hotel food and staff were excellent.

Exceeded Expectations

Would recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
I stayed during a busy convention and requested a quiet room. Despite the closeness to the French Quarter I received a very nice quiet room! April at the front desk went above and beyond handling numerous requests. I felt like the staff was taking care of a beloved family member- not a customer. Thanks to all who made this an awesome stay.

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 6, 2015
We were in town for our anniversary, my birthday and my spouses B/D. This was not our 1st time but I believe it will be our last. This was our 8th trip and we found they are out pricing themselves. To truly enjoy the New Orleans experience is getting too pricey. Our hotel is located right in the heart of activity. But we found it's lost it's personality. Not friendly at all !!!!

fabulous location

Would recommend Mon, Aug 24, 2015
The staff at this hotel are fabulous. Location cannot be beat. And you have to spend at least one night in the Irvin Mayfield Jazz Club. This is my go-to hotel in NOLA. The contrast between the quiet inner courtyard and the busy outside French Quarter is just what you need to enjoy NOLA.
