Truly the most authentic New Orleans experience: hot coffee, cool Jazz, Desire Oyster Bar, a tropical courtyard, pool & Restaurant R'evolution!
Renovated, great location.
This is a great hotel in a great location. However, as of Sept 13, 2015, the hotel is undergoing a major renovation and we were awoken every day at 9:00am by drilling and hammering. Beware.
Not pleased. Works on Conti Street (from 7am!) which we were not informed of. Staff bordering on rude, and extremely bad concierge. Situated on Bourbon Street, noise comes in through windows. :-(
Cool to hang out in Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse. There's a $15 cover if you're not a hotel guest but def worth it!
Beautiful sitting area in the middle - would love to sit with a drink and read.
Buenos tragos, buena música y un ambiente más tranquilo en Bourbon
Balconies over French Quarter.
Don't stay here if you're looking for quiet. Nice rooms.
Malcolm likes to get pvt cabs for non speaking guest who charge 4x what a regular cab charges not cool!!
Great Christmas decoration in hotel corridor!
great place to have sex with someone who is using an expense account.
Courteous friendly staff.
Inner covered courtyard with a fountain is a good place to relax.
Nice hotel for couples and singles. Kids are not a great idea here. The location's front door being on Bourbon makes it really easy to get in on the action. The hotel staff are very friendly.
Irving mayfield jazz
Great staff, central location, terrific grits. Makes life in the Quarter simple.
If you value your sleep, don't book a street-facing room. The noise level was absurd and went all night long. Go for a courtyard room with a view of the pool instead.
LOVE MALCOM THE DOORMAN
At the Irvin Mayfield Jazz playhouse great music loving this jazz group!!
Come listen to the jazz!
There's definitely a lot to desire about the hotel's Desire Bistro & Oyster Bar. It offers scrumptious Louisiana seafood specialties, New Orleans' creole recipes and more.
Great place for people watching during Mardi Gras- make friends with someone in a balcony room!
Prepare yourself for this ridiculousness by bending over and grabbing your ankles.
Beautiful hotel, great spot on Bourbon St. We were in a balcony room on Bourbon St which was awesome for people watching and some bead throwing.
A Hum on the rocks after dinner is a great way to end your evening of Jazz at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse
Ask for Vinny. He will hook you up.
I love this place its beautiful and the service is wonderful!!!
Grab a Cigar and people watch
Nice hotel, helpful & friendly staff, great location! Malcolm the door man is awesome!! Tip: Let the shower run for about 15mins if u want a hot shower otherwise its lukewarm
Right in the Heart of all the action!
Great hotel within FQ, but you are right on bourbon so be prepared for noise, but more often than not, you will be the one making it
Try the ice. Delicious
Enjoy crazy Bourbon Street from the view of the Royal Sonesta's Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse. There's no cover for Hotel guests!
No better place to spend Mardi Gras. Malcolm the door man is the MAN on Bourbon!
Classy and elegant hotel.
a great place to stay if you want to be on Bourbon Street... always clean and staff is great. Only drawback is noise depending on time of year, but it is NOLA!
This is THE Dress Circle seating during Mardi Gras...;-)
Look out for the attached bar...very pricey cocktails compared to the rest of Bourbon.
If you pass the hotel itself, heading towards Canal on Bourbon, there is a small adjunct bar that is perfect for football watching away from crowds. Also, a damn fine bloody mary.
