Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A jewel on Bourbon Street, this recently renovated French Quarter hotel radiates Southern hospitality and charm, from the traditional gabled windows and wrought-iron balconies outside to the colonial style décor and luxurious suites inside.
  • The lushly landscaped brick courtyard, enhanced by a tranquil fountain, provides an intimate ceremony location. Receptions shine in the adjoining Fleur-de-lis Suite with its elegant architecture and sparkling chandeliers, or in the all-new, 5,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, a sophisticated space with a more contemporary feel. A variety of rooms are also available for smaller celebrations.
  • They create uniquely personal events, from bridal showers and rehearsal dinners to bachelor and bachelorette parties. You and your guests will appreciate Sonesta's exquisite cuisine, which showcases their "Food is art" philosophy, as well as the luxurious, newly appointed accommodations, including the Bourbon balcony suites.
