Great hotel, wonderful location but was super loud. Actually got engaged on balcony of our room. Large bathroom and very nice room, clean.

First time for my wife to visit NOLA, my third time. First time at the Royal Sonesta.

We spent three nights ($195 per night) in a Pool Patio Balcony room. We liked everything about the place. There was even a wedding in the courtyard below our room (see pix).

What a place! Meticulously maintained, fresh flowers everywhere. Service was second to none. Naturally, you can't beat the location. Would stay here again and again.

Beautiful place. Excellent service. Great location. Room was a bit small but we were never in the room..come on...we were in New Orleans! Pool was on roof & beautiful with attentive pool barman. Best oysters in the DESIRE bar downstairs.

Stayed: July 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Sonesta for the 3rd time over our 8th Anniversary/Halloween and have nothing but good to say.

We mentioned it was our anniversary when we booked the room on-line and came in after dinner on the first night of our stay to a complimentary bottle of champagne.

We requested the same Bourbon balcony room that we had the year prior and were very pleased to know they do their best to fulfill requests and we were able to get the same room.

Russell the Concierge is wonderful. Full of great info and very fun to talk to .

Malcolm, one of the door men, is also awesome. He gave us great suggestions on where to eat and was always very friendly.

Both Russell and Malcolm remembered us from previous visits.

I will say that if you are a light sleeper, the Bourbon balcony may not be for you. But if you can handle sleeping through party noise well into the AM hours, it is well worth it for the people watching.

The hotel is clean and well-appointed and I would highly recommend staying there. We will be back ourselves as soon as we can.
