Property Overview

Enjoy the elegance and beauty of the Royal Sonesta New Orleans, reminiscent of Europe but with an unmistakable New Orleans flavor. The picturesque gabled windows, French doors, and wrought-iron balconies will give you French Quarter experience you have been dreaming of.

Stay in one beautiful suite or guest room out of 483, and relax in the lush courtyards by the pool or the beautifully-manicured gardens. This hotel has one of the best locations in the city—right on Bourbon Street, where all the main attractions are within walking distance.

New Orleans may not be the most popular honeymoon destination, but there an infinite number of romantic possibilities in this gorgeous city, including taking a carriage ride, exploring mansions on St. Charles Avenue, strolling through botanical gardens, and sailing on rivers and lakes.


  • Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse: Live jazz is offered every night in this playhouse in the lobby.
  • Le Booze on Bourbon: This is one of the best social spots on Bourbon Street where locals go to meet. Choose from their selection of mild, medium, and full-bodied cigars.
