    The Royal Sonesta New Orleans owns more than 7,000 contemporary works of art, many of which can be found on display throughout the hotel. Travelers praise the tip-top, Euro-tinged decor and the clean rooms, which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minifridges, Keurig coffee makers, robes and beds with pillow-top mattresses. Recent guests also recommend upgrading from a regular room to one of the R Club Concierge Level accommodations, if it fits into your budget. You'll receive access to a lounge with 24-hour concierge service, free breakfast and tea; free evening snacks, wine and beer, plus complimentary use of a computer. Recent travelers who booked one of the interior R Club rooms report hearing little to no noise from busy Bourbon Street. However, that is not the case for all other rooms on the property, which can let in a fair amount of street noise, according to visitors.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    The Hotel Monteleone has boarded the who's who of American literati, including Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner, to name a few. Even some of the new class (like Anne Rice, Winston Groom and John Grisham) have stayed here for a night or two. The hotel's revolving Carousel Bar & Lounge has become an icon that features prominently in books and movies about the city of New Orleans. In other words, the Hotel Monteleone is an institution. As such, it's hard to determine whether previous guests' opinions of their stay are based on quality or legacy. Some patrons gush over the hotel's charm, while others complain of cramped rooms and a dated look and feel. Rooms include Keurig coffee makers, HDTVs and iHome radios. Most everyone agrees, though, that the staff here is very personable and the location is superb. The Hotel Monteleone sits on Royal Street in the French Quarter. Keep in mind, the hotel is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts brand, meaning I Prefer members can enjoy free perks like early check-in and late checkout.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    The Omni Royal Orleans benefits from its address on St. Louis Street – between Royal and Chartres streets – in the French Quarter. In 2013, the property underwent a renovation of its public areas and guest rooms, many of which now boast wrought iron balconies. When you're not relaxing in the comfort rooms, visit the popular in-house restaurant, the Rib Room. Recent lodgers report that though rooms are somewhat small, they feature French and Creole design accents, marble bathrooms (which guests say offer great water pressure) and courtyard or French Quarter views. If you don't score a room with French Quarter views, head to the highly praised rooftop observation deck which features a heated outdoor pool. Travelers also recommend joining the Omni Select Guest program to enjoy complimentary perks, like free in-room Wi-Fi and a free libation at the bar.

    The Soniat House Hotel
    New Orleans, LA
    1.8 miles to city center
    3.5-star Hotel Class
    3.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Soniat House is an idyllic choice for couples — the decor practically screams "rendezvous," with its four-poster beds (only available in some rooms), its French and Italian antique furniture and its candlelit courtyards. Each of the 30 rooms and suites has Frette linens and Molton Brown toiletries, plus free Wi-Fi access. The property wins favor with guests for its honor bar where guests can mix their own cocktails and the breakfast, which features fresh buttermilk biscuits and strawberry preserves, among other treats (for a fee). Plus, this hotel on Chartres Street is somewhat removed from the Big Easy hoopla. Travelers give kudos to the warm staff, but they also warn that if you're expecting convenient luxury, this may not be the NOLA home base for you. Recent guests say they flocked to The Soniat House Hotel knowing it would be more like an escape to the city's bygone era and therefore tolerated some of its flaws (no in-room coffee makers and a small, slow elevator) for the charming experience.

    The Westin New Orleans Canal Place

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    If you think that you might find staying at a French Quarter hotel tiring, then you should investigate the accommodations located right on the outskirts. One such hotel would be The Westin New Orleans Canal Place, a property that gets consistent praise for allowing its residents to let their hair down in the midst of the crazy Crescent City. Some say it's the river rivers and the Heavenly Beds, others say it’s the efficient housekeeping staff and pleasant service, still others muse that it's the nightcaps served in the hotel's River 127 lounge – whatever the reason, they agree this Westin definitely offers stress-free accommodations. Recent guests say they can't award the hotel perfect reviews, though, because of worn room interiors and slow elevators. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Surrounded by lots of shops and galleries and close to the excitement of Bourbon Street, the W New Orleans – French Quarter certainly has location in its favor.
