The bed was perfect. Temp when 1st in the room was on 73 but I turned it down and it stayed cool all night.
Amazing! Beautiful, classy, and clean. Also very convenient to explore the French Quarter. There weren’t too many patrons due to Covid, so the clerk even upgraded my room with a balcony at no extra cost. Loved my stay!
Very nice hotel. Casino is small. Covid restrictions kept us from gambling.
The staff makes the stay very good. The restaurants are very expensive and limited selection to eat
It was such a comfortable stay, peaceful and quiet and cleanliness worth noting. I felt safe and clean at the Royal Sonesta.
I really enjoyed the stay. The only thing I didn't like is that I didn't have a microwave and mini refrigerator in the room.
I had a few heavy bags with me and the staff nor myself could find a bag trolly to help me with them! Other than that,it was very clean ! A very nice hotel!
