Good location for night life.

Nice hotel and staff. Good location for night life but definitely not a place to bring children. Everything is in walking distance and flat rate to the airport.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of the French Quarter

Posted 18-Oct-2014
Pros: Location, decor, staff, pool area, happy hour....
Cons: Bigger windows! Higher, all around view from the roof top patio to see more of the quarter!
Location: Bars on Bourbon, Royal Street, Jackson Square. Everything in the quarter. Very close to the CBD, we walked to the Shoppes on Canal and the Riverfront.
We loved the location - it's within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. The interior is beautifully decorated and has a historic feel. It's an oasis of calm in the middle of the Bourbon Street chaos! We stayed on the 7th floor - the club floor. It cost more money but we had breakfast there every day. Its simple - eggs, bacon, fruit and baked goods but very handy. We also frequented the happy hour and had unlimited drinks and appetizers and mingled with the other guests. That was a lovely way to start our evenings! I'd recommend the club floor. The pool area was lovely. Overall a beautiful hotel in a great location with great staff.

Review of Royal Sonesta

Posted 14-Oct-2014
Booked a king room. Got a queen room with no explanation as to why. Remodeling project of oyster bar downstairs meant loud noises (jack hammers, etc) during majority of day.

Everything was great except the water heater. Had to take a slightly cold shower on my second night.

Big Easy

Posted 10-Oct-2014
Have stayed here many times over thirty years. Obvious Bourbon Street location and very comfortable bed, bath and room. Three complaints: 1. could not check in until four thirty. 2. Ipod socket on clock radio was broken. 3. Their restaurant Desire was under renovation so it was closed and the lounge that was open was unacceptable to visit due to very loud constant banging.

Great place to stay on Bourbon street

Posted 03-Oct-2014
Pros: Nothing I didn't like about it. Had a very comfortable and satisfying stay.
Cons: An updated tv guide system.
Location: Right in the middle of Bourbon street and walking distance to all the most see spots in the French Quarter.
Friendly staff, clean rooms and a simple yet elegant feel. Has a small but nice and clean pool with adjacent bar. The jazz room had a cool burlesque show one night. Great location within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter.
