"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.

"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.

"This is the place for those who want something more than a B&B but dislike the generic quality that comes with a chain or business-oriented hotel." Full review

"For those who prefer a quieter neighborhood, the elegance of St. Charles Avenue is laid out before you in this small, chic hotel—plus, you're right next to the streetcar line." Full review

"Right on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, the Lafayette recalls the elegant residential hotels of an earlier era with its classic decor, friendly staff, and handsome Beaux-Arts building."
Gayot Gayot
"This 1916 Beaux-Arts building sits at the edge of Lafayette Square just outside downtown New Orleans. It is a small, nearly hidden jewel on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line."

"Everything you need" is on hand at this "beautiful" boutique, a 1916 landmark, done up in French Regency style with marble floors, antiques and mahogany."
