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 the lively 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 nightly, while the Desire Oyster Bar serves up cocktails and fresh Gulf seafood, including chargrilled oysters.

Reservation was for king bed or two doubles but they initially placed us in a room with only a queen. Had to move ourselves. Then, someone placed an erroneous charge of $15 on our room. I said we did not make the charge. Desk clerk removed it, but was not happy. Finally, no signs that you have to pay for water in the room except for a small sticker on the cap. I was charged for one not knowing that there would be a charge. Finally, $49 to park the car is ridiculous.

Very nice, classy hotel located right on Bourbon Strret. If you want to be in the center of it all this hotel is great.

Balcony rooms are not private nor do they have chairs. Not worth the extra money.

Great location right on Bourbon and hotel put us in a room opposite the front of hotel so our room was actually pretty quiet.

The restaurant Revolution is a wonderful place to dine for dinner or brunch on the weekends. Beautiful restaurant with top notch service.

Nice place, great staff. The reason I checked location low is because it’s located on Bourbon St. and it’s noisy all night. But if you’re into hearing people party , yell, cuss, fight and generally carry on loudly, this is your place.
