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, courtyard or one of the Quarter's lively streets, and many also feature French doors opening to wrought-iron balconies. All rooms come with pillowtop bedding, flat-panel TVs and Keurig coffee makers; for more space, you'll want to upgrade to a Deluxe Room. Or, for a signature NOLA experience, spring for a Bourbon Street Balcony Room — these can be more raucous, though, thanks to the revelry below.

The hotel is also home to several dining and entertainment venues, including Restaurant R'evolution and Bar, praised as having "some of the most accomplished luxury-grade cooking in New Orleans" by the Times-Picayune. Our favorite, though, is the Desire Oyster Bar, which serves up strong cocktails and fresh Gulf seafood, including chargrilled oysters (of course).

Great hotel on BourbonStreet! We loved being in the middle of the action. Be careful which room they give you. When we stayed a year ago, they gave us a quiet room, but this time we could hear music most of the night.

We went for my son's 21st birthday. Royal Sonesta was a perfect location - steps to all the action; bars, restaurants, music. We had the best time.
