When I first started researching hotels for our girls weekend in New Orleans, I started with location. Location, location, location! I wanted something central to the majority of our activities so we only had to take Ubers when absolutely necessary.
The French Quarter is the heart of New Orleans and while Bourbon Street may seem like a place to avoid, it’s not. Positioned here you are a short walk to some of the best restaurants, bars and historical sites in the city. Walk a little bit further and you’re at the Superdome, Central Business District, Warehouse District or Frenchmen Street. Yeah, you can Uber but with open drinking laws why not take a little bit longer stroll and enjoy all the sites, sounds and smells of New Orleans.
The Perfect Location
Knowing all this, the French Quarter was where I wanted us to be. And we needed somewhere with a pool. The Royal Sonesta fit the bill perfectly. Located right on Bourbon and Conti Streets, the hotel location could not be more ideal.
Now I know what you’re thinking… being right on Bourbon, wasn’t it loud? Not at all. They have gotten that figured out.
