"The contrast between the hurly-burly of Bourbon Street and the Sonesta's elegant lobby couldn't be greater -- this is one of the classiest hotels in the Quarter." Full review

"The Royal Sonesta is Bourbon Street’s swankiest hotel, and guests can customize it to their level of party pleasure." Full review
Low-key travelers should ask for a hushed interior room deep in the property.
DK Eyewitness DK Eyewitness
"Covering almost a block in the Quarter, this hotel is like a little village with its own shops, cafés, courtyards, and personalities."
Ask to be as far away from Bourbon Street as possible to avoid street noise.

"Built in the late 1800s as a boardinghouse for the World Cotton Exchange, this is an inn crossed with a B&B, which means a front desk staffed 24/7 and proper public areas." Full review

"This historic property, steps to the streetcar and Audubon Park, adds to the delightful choices of smaller Uptown lodgings." Full review
Gayot Gayot
"It may be a good distance from the busy Central Business District and the French Quarter, but the oasis-like setting is worth it."

"From the wraparound veranda you can enjoy up-close views of stately oaks grizzled with Spanish beards in the park and on St Charles Ave." Full review

"The ancient live oaks of Uptown’s Audubon Park shade the Park View Historic Hotel. Order some wine and toast the evening at candlelit, wrought-iron tables on the front patio."
