    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.

    The point is to have a room overlooking Bourbon Street so book here well in advance. If you’re worried about the noise, have one or two in the front & the rest facing the courtyard and pool out back. Read more

    While the Royal Sonesta won our respect with comfortable beds and great security, they won our hearts with a complimentary happy hour on the roof each evening. Read more

    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.

    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.

    Hotel is so pretty! I don't think the rooms are worth $400 a night but the hotel it's self is beautiful!

    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!

    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 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.

    I've stayed here at least 10 times. Location is great, staff is too. Rooms on Bourbon St., even on the 5th floor, are very noisy. Hotel needs to deal with homeless in front of property sleeping.

    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

    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.

    Great place for people watching during Mardi Gras- make friends with someone in a balcony room!

    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.

    A Hum on the rocks after dinner is a great way to end your evening of Jazz at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse

    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. :-(
