Sonesta completed the renovation of the Royal Sonesta New Orleans. The interior designer for Royal Sonesta New Orleans' guestroom renovation was Parker Torres Design and the architect was Design One Studio.
Located in New Orleans’ French Quarter, Royal Sonesta New Orleans now has 483 newly reimagined rooms, including 36 suites. The public spaces also underwent renovation.
The entrance to the hotel now has new furnishings and artwork. There is also a new fitness center. Meanwhile, the hotel’s R Club Level was expanded from 29 to 58 rooms and now has a new R Club lounge.
In 2015, Sonesta invested over $250 million in upgrades and redesigns to its US collection.
The renovations at Royal Sonesta New Orleans are the culmination of enhancements that started with the re-imagining of Desire Oyster Bar, the hotel’s restaurant on Bourbon Street. The interior redesign blends the property’s original aesthetics with modern elements, including decorative iron grillwork, oversized windows, an antique mirror, tin ceiling and black-and-white checkered floors.
