A Big Easy favorite on Bourbon Street, with an option to stay in a club room including breakfast and more

Appropriately for a classic Big Easy favorite, Royal Sonesta New Orleans gives you the choice of going big or taking it easy. Not merely near Bourbon Street, but directly on the iconic thoroughfare, the Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award 2017 winner offers prime access to beloved po’boy joints and fine-dining establishments. With the dance clubs, music venues and watering holes of the French Quarter, there’s a lot going on right outside this hotel’s door, but you’ll get just as diverse a cultural spread staying inside.

Seamlessly blending European elegance and Southern charm, the Four Diamond property and TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence recipient is its own private world, with traditional gabled windows, French doors and wrought-iron balconies. You can relax in a stunning tropical courtyard, sip a drink at the cocktail bar or dine in one of the three restaurants. The on-site jazz club is considered one of the neighborhood’s best, and you'll even have an incredible museum at your fingertips: the hotel's art collection, with works by Warhol, Lichtenstein and more.
