Perfect if you want to party. The jazz club is brilliant.

Oasis on Bourbon St
An oasis in the midst of the Bourbon St action! Stayed for 3 nights in a side balcony room (don't accept any rooms along the corridor of 2122, it has the main air con generator and the noise is unbearable, we had to move). Rooms are very comfortable, lovely bed and bedding. Ate breakfast in Desire, great service and food, didn't get a chance to visit Le Booze or R'evolution (which looks amazing). Gym has the equipment you need and all nice and new.

Disappointing return to our honeymoon destination
I had to make 2 separate bookings for our party as we wanted different room types. When we arrived they only had one and were really abrupt saying you do not have a booking, go and ring your tour operator. It was only when I asked to speak to a manager that they honoured the second booking. The extras expected of an R Club concierge booking were not available during our stay so no value in paying the extra. All in all the service has gone down since my last visit there 6 years ago. Also, roadworks right outside the doors ruin the street and french quarter ambience. I understand they will last for a long time as it's the sewers being replaced.

Bourbon street, is a disgrace. Girly bars, and some very dodgy goings on. The smart traveller will steer clear of Bourbon Street and stop a couple of streets away. The Sonesta, is a good hotel, let down by the character of the immediate streets around it. It's got alot going for it as a property in the centre of a city with its pool and courtyard,but it is fair to say the surroundings don't live up to its 1930s glamour. A better option would be to stay around the French Market, or Uptown and experience the rowdiness from a safer less busy vantage point

This hotel is in a great position in the French quater however the downside to this is that it is noisy at night. The concierge was also very helpful.
