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 even now, several years later, it still doesn't appear that renovations are necessary. Travelers still praise the tip-top, Euro-tinged decor and the clean guest rooms.  If you can afford to, guests also recommend you upgrade from a regular room to one of the 30 RClub rooms. 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.
