We stayed at Royal Sonesta at the end of January for 4 nights/5 days.
It is an excellent location on Bourbon Street. We walked everywhere. Very nice restaurant for breakfast and bar for drinks in the evening. Hundreds of restaurants/bars down Bourbon Street. You won't go hungry! Awesome bars with live music all up and down the Street.
The staff is very attentive and friendly.
There was an issue when I checked in for my room (there were 10 of us checking in with seperate rooms - all that were booked at the same time) They said my reservation had changed and had me coming in on the following day. (I had booked an interior patio/pool room). There was nothing available until the following day. The put me on an exterior patio room on a sidestreet (which still had restaurants/bars) and it was very loud. And in the morning very loud. The room was outdated and very small. I was very disappointed in the room. (they told me price was the same for both rooms which I found it hard to believe) I was able to move the next day into the room I had paid for. I was extremely happy with that room. It was very quiet, remodeled, clean and much larger than the prior room. They were very apologetic at the front desk and handled the frustrating situation very well. (I knew the mishap wasn't a result of an error on their part)
Overall it was a nice hotel and would stay there again.
