Pop the champagne bottle, because in 2019 the award-winning Royal Sonesta New Orleans turns 50!  It’s hard to believe that it was back in 1969 when one of the city’s most revered hotels opened its doors in the heart of the French Quarter. Since then, the landmark hotel has changed the cultural and culinary landscape of The Big Easy. Over our five decades, we have hosted galas in our elegant ballroom and participated in festivals around New Orleans. And we’ve raised the bar on the city’s dining and entertainment with the heralded Restaurant R’evolution, Desire Oyster Bar, and Jazz Playhouse. It’s the place to be in New Orleans!

September is the big month when we mark our actual anniversary date, but we’ll be celebrating all year long. We hope you’ll join us and indulge in the authentic Southern hospitality that sets us apart in this celebrated city.
