Editorial review:

Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans is where the action is at! You can stay up till the break of day if you book balcony quarters above Bourbon Street in this French Quarter veteran hotel, or if you want something quieter, there are stunningly beautiful and restful rooms overlooking the courtyard. The places oozes old world charm, and the staff are excellent and tireless.

  • The location was great, hotel was beautiful and for that price was Excellent. The rooms were clean, and the lobby was huge, service was fine. The bed was perfect, the sheets towels were clean and music in the evenings in the pub was just superb.

    New orleans is not, the tv is also a very old tube tv.

  • Room service great Bourbon Street location and beautiful hotel. Rates were amazing for nola, the personnel was very nice and the maid did offer to bring us a fresh one for free. The bed was extremely comfortable, restaurant Revolution opening was fantastic and the meeting facilities were perfect for our group of 120.

    Centrally located, very busy exciting area, no breakfast within a reasonable price and a reasonable quality, actually, everyone at the front desk was impolite. Hot water for tea was lukewarm and elevators were slow. The gym was a little small.

  • The location in the French quarter and the ease in getting around the city of New Orleans, the hotel is beautiful. The staff at royal sonesta are very hospitable, rooms are small, and not all that clean, now the pool itself is great.

  • The balcony on Bourbon Street very interesting from a people watching point of view, the location of this hotel is absolutely amazing and the lobby is beautiful, as is the outdoor courtyard. Staff is extremely nice and helpful, bathrooms are modern, great music people friendly. The pool was sparkling and there is a pretty courtyard.

    Room a little small, loud toilets and no coffee maker, tiny desk.

  • The location is convenient, new Orleans has returned and the grand fresh floral arrangements in the lobby is a true mark of quality. Staff are friendly, the concierge desk is amazingly helpful and patient too, a coffee pot in the rooms would be nice. Great prices for French quarter fall 2007 and the pool is a big plus.

    One poor bellman for the hotel the whole time we were there.

  • Excellent location and service, great Hotel. Price somewhat high, beautiful lobby and thanks to your front desk personal and the Bellman. Flowers accented tasteful furniture everywhere, on a nice inner terrace and plenty of fresh towels.

    Not the best stay at the sonesta, bourbon Street scary and my room was on 2nd floor, as far back as possible. The breakfast was luke warm.
