The Destination
Tennessee Williams once said that there are only three cities in the United States: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. What do they have in common? For one, a unique cultural richness embodied by the cities' historic architecture, their obsession with food, and their dedication to the arts. It's a trio that inspires romance, a sense of timelessness and ambience that lends these places an air of inimitable authenticity. And so it is in New Orleans, a place that isn't so much stuck in the past as it is a tribute to its roots—good food, good drink, and good times, among them. Laissez les bon temps rouler, indeed.

The Digs
Known for having the best balconies in the city, the Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans blends European touches with Southern charm. Located in the heart of the historic French Quarter, and the only AAA Four Diamond Award-winning hotel on Bourbon Street, the Sonesta's timeless elegance radiates from its traditional gabled windows, French doors, and wrought-iron lace balconies.

Guest rooms offer a well-appointed oasis, with some affording views of the property's secluded pool or tropical courtyard, as well as amenities like flat-screen TVs, pillow-top mattresses, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Unwind with a cocktail or grab a bite at one of the hotel's seven culinary destinations before hitting the third-floor pool deck.

The Diversions
There's no better place to begin your New Orleans experience than at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse. Situated in the lobby of the hotel, this intimate venue recalls an earlier era with stylish white banquettes and classic cocktails, and offers live music seven nights a week.

More historic charm awaits at the hotel's Desire Bistro & Oyster Bar, appointed with original tile flooring, a gilded ceiling, and French cafe-style seating. Classic Creole dishes find their way onto the menu for three meals each day, with turtle soup and barbecue shrimp drawing devoted locals and visitors alike. For a recharge, make your way to PJ's Coffee Cafe, serving light fare and rich coffee until 8 p.m. nightly.

  • "Step from the revelry of Bourbon Street into the marble elegance of this renowned hotel, where the lobby's lush plants enhance a cool, serene atmosphere, and the guest rooms are equally restful."

  • "I took my best friend (since 7th grade, we're now in our 60s) to New Orleans for her birthday. We loved the hotel, especially being able to look down on the beautiful courtyard. I would definitely love to stay at this hotel again."
