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 it's 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, many of the rooms also feature French doors opening to wrought iron balconies. Those looking for a quieter stay should request interior accommodations or rooms on the R Club concierge floors. In addition to the upgraded accomodations, R Club guests receive 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. 

Located in the center of the French Quarter, the hotel is within walking distance of art galleries, boutiques, museums and world-class dining. The city's famous Jackson Square is just 10 minutes away by foot, which means coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde are just a few steps further.
