More Room Types

Occupying a full block of the French Quarter, the Royal Sonesta is the only luxurious hotel on Bourbon Street. The crystal-lit marble lobby guides visitors to three lush courtyards tended to by the hotel’s full-time horticulturist. The only reminder of the hotel’s Bourbon Street address is the lively pool, a favorite for singles with a cabana dishing out cocktails, tunes and complimentary sunscreen.

Rooms overlook the pool, a courtyard or lively French Quarter street. Renovated to include sleek dark woods, new carpeting, granite countertops and pillow-top mattress, many of the rooms also feature French doors opening to wrought iron balconies. Those looking for a quieter stay should request accommodations away from Bourbon Street, which is noisy late into the night. The Tower Floor on the seventh level has 30 rooms and four suites with exclusive elevators and private concierge.

Chef John Folse and James Beard Award-winner Rick Tramonto partnered to open Restaurant R’evolution featuring modern interpretations of Creole and Cajun cuisine. Desire Oyster Bar faces Bourbon Street and serves local seafood while Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse spotlights local artists with late night burlesque performances on weekends. 

Located in the center of the French Quarter, the hotel is within walking district of art galleries, boutiques, museums and world-class dining.
