Malcolm was excellent! Blonde bartender at pool bar had great hair.
Pool too crowded!
I liked the location of the hotel. The rooms were really nice. Staff was wonderful. Everything I needed was there in the hotel. I plan to spend my anniversary there next year, and I'll be bringing my cousins to celebrate their's at this fabulous hotel
I didn't like the internet service it kept making me sign in everytime I turned my tablet off
I enjoyed the friendliness of the staff from the front desk to bellman to the coffee shop everyone was very nice. The location was perfect in the middle of bourbon st!
The hotel was amazing , being right on Bourbon street it couldn't have been better placed. Though we only had two nights in New Orleans I found the whole experience magical. Would defiantly stay again.
This hotel is centrally located on Bourbon Street and you will recognize it instantly! Huge, beautiful marble lobby. Clean hallways and elevators. Our room was cleaned by staff twice each day! Our Deluxe King overlooked the courtyard pool and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The Sonesta offers a coffee shop, restaurant, and Desire oyster bar.
My husband felt that the ac was insufficient in our room.
It was close to everything
To high priced for what you get
Loved location, restaurants great food
Odd smell in room from carpet High Price to park in addition to room cost
Ms Boza Jonathon and the night guard were amazing
Construction outside the window
Great location and a beautiful place. You can walk to everything that is worth going to. If you fly in don't rent a car, you don't need one and parking in the Quarter is very expensive. I would like to go back.
Easy to get to places and comfy bed
Very noisy location and other guests, no complimentary coffee or tea. Felt like the purpose was just to get as much money from us as possible not whether we were happy.
Hated the "upgrade" to the Bourbon Street side when I requested not to be on the side. No sleep for 3 days due to the noise.
Long elevator wait
Great staff, especially Darrin, the Concierge and Kristin, his intern. All staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. Great food, drinks and staff in Desire restaurant as well as in lobby lounge. R-Club floor (7th) was wonderful with its very good breakfast and 5-7 PM hospitality hours and we will book that floor for all our future visits to New Orleans. Great value for the money.! Very good location in French Quarter.
Needs to upgrade Wi-Fi. Bathroom sink didn't work--couldn't fix it on Friday afternoon. Darrin, the Concierge offered another room on another floor but we wanted to stay on 7th floor with friends, so he waived the upcharge for our two night stay which was acceptable to my wife and me.
We are from Australia and have been traveling for 5 weeks prior to our visit to New Orleans. If your staying on Bourban St you can't do any better. The location is excellent, the facility's are as good as you could hope for anywhere. Staff are very friendly and polite. Did not have a bad experience whilst staying there. Would recommend to anyone.
80 dollars to park as a hotel guest. Room was ill kept. Staff was rude and not knowledgeable. Needs renovation.
There were a lot of drunks by the elevator on Saturday night and security was no where to be found. I did not feel safe
The staff were very friendly and the location was perfect. The pool was right outside my door.
The noise level of the bathroom and not only in my room I could here everyone else's.
Best location you can only desire to have in Big Easy. Very nice design, good own jazz-bar, cute pool in inner yard.
Everything was good :)
Hard to sleep so Close to Bourbon Street
Parking was higher than expected. Parking should be $25 a day, not $39.50. Way too high.
Location of hotel was perfect for us, right on Bourbon St. Despite this we couldn't hear any of the late night partying from our room which overlooked the street. Room was amazing, almost as good as the 5 star room we had on our honeymoon, massive king size bed which was really comfortable, large tv, safe which fit my laptop and all other gadgets in. Bathroom was mega posh and room was cleaned to high standard every day. The hotel was very smart throughout, it has a really nice swimming pool on the 3rd floor which we didn't find out about until it was too late but it looked ideal and the oyster restaurant, breakfast cafe and bar were all very good as well. Staff were very polite and helpful. Will be staying here again if we return to New Orleans
Wifi, although free was very slow and I'm currently in a $30 motel in Natchez and iv got free super fast wifi! Provided towels were too small.
Ambience Staff Location
I wanted to be in the middle of the action, and I got it. We were treated to lots of live musicians day and night. However, noise was not really an issue. Hotel staff is very friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Overall a great stay.
The location, the overall grandeur.
Our room needed improvements- -new carpet and the draperies were falling apart in a few areas so we couldnt block out all the light. The toilet was difficult to flush.
Allmost is good.
Nobody warned me that parking costs, and it costs big buks! 40$!!! So it was a nasty surprise at check out.
