Overview

Occupying a full block of the French Quarter, Royal Sonesta New Orleans is one of the few 4-star hotels on Bourbon Street and fresh from a 2016 renovation. 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 with a poolside bar dishing out frozen cocktails. 

Rooms overlook the pool, a courtyard or lively French Quarter street. Renovated to include new carpeting, granite countertops and pillowtop mattresses, and many of the rooms also feature French doors opening to wrought iron balconies. Those seeking a quieter stay should request interior accommodations or rooms on the R Club concierge floors -- R Club guests receive complimentary breakfast, complimentary beer and wine in the evening, private keyed elevator access, personalized concierge service and access to an exclusive lounge and terrace. 

The hotel is also home to several dining and entertainment venues, including Restaurant R'evolution and Bar R'evolution, praised as "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 and Desire Oyster Bar serves up cocktails and fresh Gulf seafood, including chargrilled oysters on the half shell. 

From the press:
  • "The gorgeous, nicely decorated quarters at this French Quarter favorite sure feel royal, but its real appeal is 'location, location, location'" -- Zagat
  • "Home to some of the French Quarter's most iconic locations" -- USAToday
  • "Those who want a certain New Orleans experience can take a balcony room and watch an eclectic parade of people go by at all hours" -- Oyster.com

A seasoned staff did their best to rectify issues, including moving me to a quieter room.
Other Comments
Loads of construction on Bourbon Street and surrounding streets removed all the fun of staying in the quarter and brought jackhammer noise in the morning. While the hotel is not responsible for construction, prominent warnings should have been included in the TravelZoo ad.

I booked a room with 2 queen beds 4 months in advance of arrival. When I checked in, they said they didn't have any available rooms and that they would put us in a king with a cot. I thought this was unacceptable. They showed us 2 different king rooms and I'm not quite sure how we would have been able to fit a cot in either one. It took us a third time discussing the issue that day with the front desk for them to finally put us in a room that would accommodate us. We still didn't have 2 beds, but we got into a room that had enough space for a cot.
