We had a balcony room over Bourbon St. for 2 nights. Over $800 wasn't worth it. Rained hard and water came into the carpet about 3 feet in past the entry. Food was the worst ever. Closest thing to craziness was one of the street entertainers throwing up below our window and waiting to see how long it would take for someone to step in it. If you're after Mardi Gras type stuff, you will be disappointed.

Greetings from the French Quarter and thank you for taking the time to share your review. As you likely discovered, the spring months in New Orleans offer a variety of events with endless tourists traveling to the Crescent City to enjoy celebrations like The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Mardi Gras and more. With such a rich cultural calendar, this period is defined as one of our peak seasons with demand at its greatest. For those preferring promotional offers, we invite you to explore months such as July, August or January which are often feature buzz-worthy rates. Your added comments are also appreciated and we regret that your experience fell short of meeting expectation. Should your travels bring you back to visit again, we hope that you will consider another Royal Sonesta experience so that we can restore your confidence in our luxury hotel.
