Awesome time!
Very fun trip! Right on bourbon which is what we wanted. Surprisingly you couldn’t hear everything which was nice. Two alarms went off while we were in the hotel which we never found out why which kinda freaked us out. But super nice hotel and a very comfy stay would definitely recommend it to anyone. It was awesome valet was right underneath the hotel so it was easy to use.

Great wedding venue
We were there for a wedding so the location of the hotel was appropriate. Lots going on if you want to have a romantic weekend you will not want to be in this hotel.

Just like I remember
Service was really good, they treated us quite well. Like we were family. Everyone had a cheerful attitude no matter what their jobs were. You need to experience Royal Sonesta at least once. Walk right out on Bourbon st! Plenty of activities within walking distance. It's been 20 years since we stayed here & alot is still the same, makes it great in my opinion.

You don't always get what you want.
One word of advice. When arranging your trip through a site like this (, do not count on the hotel giving you the room that was described. We were supposed to get a hotel with a side street balcony and received a room with a view of an empty pool and unused outside bar. When complaining, they basically threw the site under the bus and said we should have going directly through the hotel. Very disappointed.
