Lonely Planet review

Don’t the boys look fancy as they open the grand doors for you in their blue royal-guard–look tux and tails? Most times of year this hotel exudes a gracious charm, but the location is ground zero for the tourist excesses during Mardi Gras (staff grease the pillars to keep revelers from climbing up to the balconies). Still, the nearly 500 rooms provide classy retreats from the strip clubs and lousy cover bands. The Mystic Den is a dignified old bar – perfect for a civilized gin and tonic.

Our independent authors have visited Royal Sonesta Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in French Quarter.
