Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Occupying a full block of the French Quarter, Royal Sonesta New Orleans is the only AAA 4-Diamond hotel on Rue Bourbon. The crystal-lit marble lobby guides visitors to three lush courtyards where "you might forget you're right on Bourbon Street, what with all the graciousness inside" (Frommer's).
Rooms overlook the pool, a courtyard or lively the French Quarter street, and many of the rooms also feature French doors opening to wrought-iron balconies. Sonesta Guest Rooms feature one queen, one king or two queen beds assigned upon arrival; guests can upgrade to Deluxe accomodations for a little more space; all Sonesta and Deluxe guest rooms feature pillowtop bedding, flat-panel TVs and Keurig coffee makers.
Bourbon Street Balcony rooms offer a signature New Orleans experience, though balcony rooms can be more raucous thanks to the revelry below. RClub rooms include a personal concierge and access to the seventh-floor Club Lounge for complimentary breakfast in the morning and cocktails in the evening.
The hotel is also home to several dining and entertainment venues, including Restaurant R'evolution and Bar R'evolution, praised as having "some of the most accomplished luxury-grade cooking in New Orleans" by the Times-Picayune. The Jazz Playhouse features live music every night of the week, while the Desire Oyster Bar serves up cocktails and fresh Gulf seafood, including chargrilled oysters.
