Located right in the heart of the French Quarter is not exactly where I wanted to stay. To my pleasant surprise...I was blown away by the service staff and the hotel. You would never realize there was a Bourbon Street party outside as the room and hotel were quiet and relaxing. After a much anticipated trip to NOLA and making...

My inside courtyard room on the 5th floor was super quiet. And you can't beat the location. A lovely oasis right smack in the middle of Bourbon street. Plus, the beds were super comfy. I was there for a small conference, which was right in the hotel. The complement of the academic conference and elegant hotel on the one hand...

Hotel in the Bourbon Street French Quarter. Room nice, perhaps a bit small. You are right in the heart of things, loud, bold, brash. I would imagine in the height of season it would be a bit very very busy.

I'm sure it is difficult to deal with drunk visitors to the French Quarter, but I was not one of them. I'm a single professional woman traveling on business. The front desk was inexplicably hostile. A room service order arrived 2 hours late, cold and disgusting. When I called to have charge removed I was treated like I was trying...

Hard to believe you can have such a nice hotel off Bourbon St. great food in the restaurants. We stayed in an interior room overlooking pool and could not hear any noise from street. Patricia on the seventh floor club room is the sweetest and most cheerful lady!

Please don't be fooled by the reviews. Wherever you are is loud and the staff is unhelpful! We were given the "less loud" option and were kept awake by constant screaming. When we contacted the front desk we were told there was "nothing they could do until tomorrow." The bass can be felt from your room and the music feels...

Three nights at the Royal Sonesta starting on Ash Wednesday proved to be good timing for a non vacation stay on Bourbon Street. Happy revelers were still in abundance and bodily fluids still flowed as much as the alcohol. The later consumed and the prior displaced by the generally friendly crowd. Once inside the RSNO not a street sound could...

The staff and service (with the exception of housekeeping) are excellent. People who care about their guests. The rooms, however, need work, Chipped and peeling paint in the bathroom, and a balcony in need of some serious cleaning.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
