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.

            We had stayed at the hotel about 30 years ago and were concerned that it might not have aged well. Not to worry, it was terrific. Obviously had been updated several times along the way.

            Not really, although the bell service was a bit slow

            The hotel lobby was very nice, room was clean and the TV was very nice.

            $6 bottles of water in July in your room? $39 for parking under the hotel? Overall the location was good if you want to be on Bourbon street but I've stayed at nicer hotels in better locations for this price.

            The service

            I thought I booked the hotel reservation with your service in full but I was charges and abundant of other taxes for those days..I called Booked.net and was told the hotel charges taxes...now that I kno that what ia the purpose of using Booked.net. I'm very upset with that and extra 300.00 on taxes.

            Very convenient. Located right on Bourbon street where all the action is.

            It was noisy at night while we were trying to sleep. Our room was not in the front but had a window on the side street and lots of traffic, people, etc.

            The hospitality!

            There was nothing at all about this hotel that was adverse.

            Hotel has 'old world' charm located on Bourbon Street, which is very convenient. Our room looked out on the pool and we did not have any streetnoise. Lovely pool with clean towels and pretty courtyard. Music in the evenings in the pub was just superb.

            Very noisy hotel guests returning from late night outings.

            The pursuit of excellence by the Hotel Staff made this an especially enjoyable experience. There was a beautiful wedding going on in the garden. The grand fresh floral arrangements in the lobby is a true mark of quality. In the heart of the French Quarter situated on Bourbon St., it is one block from the Antique and Art market and within a comfortable walk to both Old and New World sights of New Orleans. The food and beverage service for the conference was excellent from continental breakfast to brunch, breaks and cocktails and from elegant pastries to gourmet dinner cuisine.

            The coffee was a sad representation of the French Roast coffee one would expect to find at such a grand hotel.

            Bell captain at front door was personable. Manager and staff at check in was not

            Our room was booked as a delux king room. No delux features at all.Had repairs being done on roof (Jack hammering) for one afternoon that created loud noise fro 3 hours.

            Location. We're not big drinkers but loved the bar in the courtyard, 50 feet from our room. Great for pre and post dinner cocktails. The courtyard was a great retreat from bourbon st.

            Very beautiful and clean. Right in the middle of the hustle & bustle of Bourbon Street....so if you want to party or even just people watch, then this is a great place to be....Staff is extremely nice and helpful. Great restaurants.

            They had a few kinks to work out while we were there.....only 1/2 the tv channels worked; the pay per view movie sound was so low we couldn't hear most of what was going on (had to call and have them delete that charge about 10 minutes into the movie); several of the wall plugs didn't work

            Excellent location for visiting the French Quarters and the discounted price.

            Wouldn't stay if I had to pay the regular rate.

            I love the location of the hotel right on the strip infront of all the fun and exitement..

            It is too expensive

            I only stayed in this hotel for one night, but it was a great experience. The beautiful courtyard was a perfect way to welcome me to New Orleans! I loved the balcony. We overlooked Conti Street, so it wasn't as loud as Bourbon would have been. Wish I could have stayed there all weekend, but it wasn't within my budget. Glad I got one night in!
