The hotel

Built in traditional French Quarter style, complete with gabled windows, French doors and wrought-iron balconies, the fabulous Royal Sonesta occupies a prime spot on Bourbon Street, one of New Orleans most famous locations. As well as very comfortable rooms, there’s a fab swimming pool and fitness room. Desire Oyster Bar with French doors leading out onto Bourbon Street is a casual bistro serving delicious local dishes. There’s also the Mystick for cocktails and live entertainment from Tuesday through to Saturday, so grab a drink and stake your place for what’s sure to be a good night out. Le Booze, also overlooking Bourbon Street, is a favourite meeting place for locals and if you’re an ice-cream fan, head to Daiquiri Delight Shop for an exotic concoction! Boasting AAA 4-diamond status, you’ll enjoy the convenience of a major hotel but with all the charm the Deep South can muster!

Live entertainment, great food however great great location. You can not go wrong. Every time we decide to stay downtown we stay here. Park the car and just relax. Walking distance from anything you would want to see or do in the quarter or downtown. Great place to rekindle the magic.

Check in for the concert was slow and seating was not available until 15 mins prior to concert. Valet parking was a nominal $5, which the staff did not know about. I had anticipated photo opportunities before sunset. Service was slow.
