Right on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter! The staff, and especially the Concierge, was so helpful and engaging. The property is so well kept up and the sleeping room was top-notch. On the top floor is a guest lounge, with drinks and nibbles: a very nice touch at the end of a busy day. A terrific pool area, towels...

We stayed at Royal Sonesta on Burbon for our National TASC conference. The conference rooms were impeccable as well as the hotel rooms. There is an RClub on the 7th floor which serves snacks and meals throughout the day. Ms Patricia, our server throughout our entire stay, made sure we were well taken care of and had the friendliest conversations...

The R Club is awesome and Brandi is a professional and attentive hostess whose charm added just another reason to keep coming back. The hotel in general and the R Club in particular are a five star Oasis in the center of the loud bustling French Quarter.

We stayed here again recently and I still find it the best location ever. The noise level on Bourbon St does not make it through the walls but you are right in the midst of the action if you so desire. A block off of Royal Street where the shopping is excellent....and convenient to Felix's Oysters. What more could you...

This hotel is locates at the heart of French Quarter. The rooms are spacious. However, most without a window to face the streets. The lobby jazz bar is a wonderful addition an we enjoys top notch jazz entertainment. The best feature of the hotel is the large outdoor pool, which provide escape from the crowds of Bourbon Street.

Greetings! The French Quarter is known for its endless saxophones and trumpets that serenade both the pedestrians that float by and those enjoying a meal at the various restaurants and cafes which dot our city streets, including our very own Desire Oyster Bar.

This hotel is very large for being situated in the middle of Bourbon Street. We got an interior room that was overlooking the pool and it was very quiet. No crazy sounds from the Bourbon Street debauchery made it up to our room at night. The staff was very polite and accommodating. I recommend getting the concierge level service, the...

From the lobby arrival area to the room, there is a real sense of calm and luxury throughout. We were on the 2nd floor (1st floor for those in UK reading) and had a courtyard view. It was very quiet and we had perfect night sleep every time - you will hear music from the jazz bar in the evening...

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.
