Right in the middle of bourbon street. Would think it's a solid spot until you try to sleep. Even got a room away from Main Street. Mine was off the back street and still loud at all hours. Bring ear plugs. There for a conference and the food they served, well it was hotel food. Nothing special although they did...

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The staff is very accommodating and friendly rooms are neat and clean. Everyone on staff knows how to get to the attractions and gives great directions. My only complaint was a real horrible mattress. It was lumpy and had a valley in the middle (my husband and I are not heavy)...

It's a little pricey for what you get but the rooms are nice and clean. My friend had her wedding here and the wedding was beautiful. The food was wonderful, however the wedding coordinator was AWFUL. She had zero patience, did not explain anything as to where to stand during the ceremony (I was a bridesmaid), did not actually have...

My husband and I visited New Orleans this past weekend and chose Royal Sonesta due to its convenient location on Bourbon St. Staff was nice. The issue we ran into was the fact that there was mold and mildew on our shower curtain and a thick, dirty film inside Keurig. I would have liked to get a more sincere apology...

We loved this hotel, it was just stunning. We did have some minor annoyances, so let me get those out of the way. We were checking in with a very large group. Some people's rooms were ready and some were not. Ours was not, which was no big deal it was early. We were told we would get a call...

We were a little nervous about staying right in the middle of Bourbon. However, entering the hotel is like stepping away from the madness...the lobby is quiet and elegant. The staff is professional and very helpful. We were on the fifth floor so we did not hear much street noise but they do offer free ear plugs in case you...

First of all, R'evolution is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. We had a business meeting here and everything was just outstanding. The room was clean and comfortable, and staff was welcoming and highly professional. To top it off, I got to eat at R'evolution twice!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
