2.0 Bad
China, the current manager, was absolutely the rudest manager at a hotel that I gave ever encountered. I couldn’t reach the valet the bring my car around for a flight that I needed to make. I asked for the manager at the front desk and requested that that try to reach them and have my car pulled around. This is what valet should do and a manager should be able to take care of this. She told me to take care of it myself and I told her that’s why I am asking her to do it. She hung up on me. But that’s not all. I tried for 2 days to get the concierge to book a dinner reservation. It never happened. We tried to eat at the Desire restaurant attached to the hotel. The food was cold, not prepared well and took 45 min for 1 breakfast dish that we ordered at 7am when they opened. We were told it was a new cook. Ultimately, the entire bill was comped. We just walked out. I will never stay there again and I’ll make sure to tell everyone I know about my experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:I liked everything. The cleanliness, the service, the location, the beds, the updated bathrooms etc.
Cons:I was fully satisfied
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything available was excellent
Cons:Covid-specialized massages would have been nice, like some other nice hotels I stay at currently
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:The lobby area was nice and the bellman were very helpful and friendly.
Cons:The room was lacking basic items like bath towels, coffee cups. We were “upgraded” to a suite which had a queen spring with a twin mattress with the springs sticking out so we were unable to use this for our kids but still had to pay the upgrade price. Therefore the “upgrade” did not provide us with any additional sleeping space. The room door key did not work because they had to charge the lock. The concierge desk was impossible to reach to get towels, sheets, ect. It would just ring and go to voicemail. We tried to order food from the in house restaurant and they directed us to their in room menu which did not exist. Our room was two levels with an exit door on each level. I asked if they could deliver our sheets to the second level because we may not hear the knock on the first level and they said they were unable to go to the second level, even though this is a normal hotel floor with a normal hallway door entry so I was confused by this. Many of these issues are likely because they are short staffed with COVID-19 and hopefully will be improved.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:We have been using the Sonesta for many years. Location, Location, Location and an excellent hotel. Relaxing. Great Pool scene, THE BEST street scene. NOLA's best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything but mostly location
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Confortable accomodations
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Very nice hotel. Prices reflect hotels location. Service was excellent. Please note that during our stay that there was construction, both road and building, being done right in front of the hotel. That made it difficult traveling the one way streets to get to the hotels parking garage. Choose your dates carefully if you select this hotel.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Staff. Comfort. Location. Jazz lounge.
Cons:Pricing is very high during Mardi Gras weeks. Jazz lounge closed at 10pm
10.0 Excellent
Pros:right on bourbon street, a little noisy at night....but hey, what fo you expect if youre looking for a hotel ON bourbon street?? beautifully decorated lobby for christmas and extremely friendly staff

FAQs when booking at The Royal Sonesta New Orleans

  • The Royal Sonesta New Orleans sits right on Bourbon Street, which has been an important lifeline of the area since the 18th century and oozes with history and (allegedly) ghosts of the past. The historic ambiance of the quarter allows you to imagine how life may have been a few centuries back and the themed hotel rooms create a special atmosphere to support that feeling.

  • The Royal Sonesta New Orleans boasts its own parking garage which is wedged between 700 Conti and Bienville Streets. Valet parking is the only option you have and costs approximately $43 per night for standard-sized vehicles. If you opt to park your car at the safe hotel parking lot, bear in mind that the valet services may take up to 20m to park or fetch your car upon request.

  • The Jazz Playhouse is the hotel’s proud entertainment establishment which gives you jazz music of the finest, combined with New Orleans inspired cocktails. The extensive and ever-changing event schedule of the club features jazz professionals who sway you into the right mood for your stay. Burlesque evenings reinstate the lascivious yet tasteful dance and music culture, which are always good for a show.

  • An interactive culinary event takes place daily at the Desire Oyster Bar, where oyster enthusiasts get to enjoy freshly prepared delicacies. The restaurant features a "raw bar", which means all fish and seafood is uncooked before you can watch the excellent chefs prepare it from scratch for you to enjoy. The contemporary bar lures in with modern black and white interior for a chic ambiance while Chefs Jeff Mattia and Quinlin Williams ensure the palate experience is topnotch.

  • The hotel seeks to accommodate your wishes as often as possible. Based on their room availability, an early check-in or late check-out are therefore generally possible and should be arranged with the hotel concierge beforehand.

A fantastic accommodation is only part of the deal, and the party only really gets started with VIP reservation for The Jazz Playhouse and a welcome bottle of champagne to set off your time together. With daily gourmet breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres, your culinary needs are also met. If you are honeymooners who have come to enjoy the romantic mood of the city, the honeymoon suite will certainly be to your taste.
