U.S. News Review

The Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans is one of the few French Quarter hotels that didn't close down immediately following Hurricane Katrina. And now, some visitors note the hotel's starting to show a bit of wear and tear. Still, travelers praise the tip-top, Euro-tinged decor and the clean guest rooms, which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minibars and beds with pillow-top mattresses. If you can afford to, guests also recommend you upgrade from a regular room to one of the RClub level accommodations. You'll have access to a lounge with 24-hour concierge service, breakfast, tea and cocktails, plus complimentary use of a computer. Recent guests who booked one of the interior RClub rooms report hearing little to no noise from busy Bourbon Street.
