Royal Sonesta New Orleans

Located in the heart of the French Quarter (which itself is considered to be the heart of New Orleans), Royal Sonesta New Orleans has been a staple on Bourbon Street since 1969 when the former brewery opened


Reopening after a renovation in early 2016, Royal Sonesta New Orleans is a sort of all-in-one New Orleans experience. Unmistakably southern, the property has traditional gabled windows, wrought iron balconies and a lush courtyard.

Jazz and food are the hallmarks of New Orleans and Royal Sonesta has plenty of both. Restaurant R’evolution is for those who want creative reimaginings of Cajun and Creole classics, while those who want to sample the classics in their original format first can head to Desire Oyster Bar where shrimp and grits and po’boys await. As the name suggests, Desire also has a raw oyster bar where plump gulf oysters are shucked and eaten by the hundred every night during oyster season. Evenings at Royal Sonesta often end with a stop at the Jazz Playhouse where notable names from the New Orleans jazz scene can often be found.
