For more than 300 years, New Orleans has been welcoming visitors to the Big Easy. It is a destination for all ages, from world-class family attractions to a romantic stroll through the music clubs of Frenchman Street. Every day will lead you through a memorable experience of unique cuisine, exciting nightlife and historical charm.

Located at the heart of the action, in the French Quarter, award-winning Royal Sonesta New Orleans is more than a place to stay. It provides a VIP box seat to a true New Orleans experience. With 483 guest rooms and 36 suites, authentic hospitality and world-class amenities, it is an experience unlike any other, offering the best of the Big Easy all under one roof. The resort-style property is home to several dining and entertainment venues, offering world-renowned fine dining at Restaurant R’evolution, authentic Louisiana cuisine at Desire Oyster Bar, nightly live music at The Jazz Playhouse and more.

Though located directly on bustling Bourbon Street, guests will still have space to relax and enjoy some peace in the hotel’s lush courtyard or with a cocktail by the tranquil Oasis Pool. Either way, there is no better time to immerse yourself in the culture of New Orleans and enjoy the jazzy sounds and creole flavours of the French Quarter.
