Royal Sonesta New Orleans
Ranked #30 of 167 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2017

I have stayed New Orleans many times on business for 20 years, but I had never had occasion to stay in downtown, in the French Quarter until the week of Oct 1st. My wife and I stayed at the Royal Sonesta for a pleasure trip and we were treated to first class service, food, drink and assistance from all the hotel staff. I have never experienced any better politeness and hospitality, not only from the folks at the Royal Sonesta, but all over the French Quarter. Definitely, my wife and I are putting the Royal and the French Quarter on our yearly vacation list, there is just too much to see and do, we will see you next year.

Room Tip: Ask for patio by the pool, third floor.

Been reading reviews and curious as to if construction will still be in front of the hotel for my reservations over Thanksgiving week. I contacted the hotel directly and was told they do not know.....

Dear Kim,

We’re looking forward to hosting you very soon, and we’re certain you’re going to have an unforgettable time here in New Orleans. While we cannot make any guarantees about the status of the city’s improvement project, we’re hopeful that our block will be completed prior to Thanksgiving week. Feel free to give us a call directly if you’d like to request a specific room type or location, as many of our guests have commented that they forget the construction is taking place outside once they’re in their rooms. We can’t wait to welcome you!

Sincerely,

Alfred L. Groos
General Manager

This hotel has a great location and a wonderful staff. Our room faced the pool and we did not hear any noise from Bourbon Street. It was an easy walk to the WWII Museum, French Quarter restaurants and street car stops. I highly recommend the Royal Sonesta.

Due to the construction on Bourbon Street, an airport shuttle dropped us off several blocks from the hotel. It was a challenge to navigate the streets with luggage, especially because there was a fence that prohibited crossing the street. The hotel staff told us the shuttle could have left us much closer, such as in the hotel parking lot.

Nice hotel and great staff. Loved the oyster bar. Only drawback was construction on Bourbon Street would stay here again most definitely & bring friends back with us. The city is great and so are the people

Despite the construction which made it a bit difficult to access by car, the hotel was gorgeous. It will be perfect once construction is completed. It was our anniversary and they gave us a free bottle of champagne and upgraded us to a balcony room facing Bourbon street which was a nice touch
