Expert Review

It’s hard to believe this classy, marble-clad hotel occupies an entire block of the most infamous street in the Quarter. Unruly and uninhibited behavior aside, the noise alone is enough to keep most away from Bourbon Street . . . at least when it comes to sleeping. Somehow, in spite of all of this, the Royal Sonesta manages to provide a refined escape from the mayhem – in the rooms facing the inner courtyard, that is. The rooms that face Bourbon Street, though they provide prime views of the action below from private terraces, are not sufficiently soundproof to permit a solid night’s sleep. All of the 483 units are elegant, swathed in light colors, and benefit from gabled windows and wrought-iron lace balconies.
