The image you have of your bachelor party hanging on a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street while hordes of jealous masses beckon you for attention and beads? That can be a reality at the wonderful Royal Sonesta. Located directly on Bourbon Street, this hotel has been playing host to groups looking to have a true New Orleans experience for years. And just because it is on Bourbon Street doesn’t mean it’s a dog either - it has beautiful rooms, an awesome jazz bar, and a courtyard featuring a pool where you can cool your heels during the day while you recover from last night’s shenanigans.... or gear up for tonight’s.

Venue Tip: 

The point is to have a room overlooking Bourbon Street so book here well in advance. If you’re worried about the noise, have one or two in the front and the rest facing the courtyard and pool out back.

The Good: 
Obviously the location is what makes this gem stand out. But the staff is solid and the pool is a perfect daytime hang.
The Bad: 
If you are facing Bourbon Street and trying to relax, the rooms can get a bit loud. That’s Bachelor10 pounding on your wall, old man!

Price: $$$

Good place to party? If you get a balcony, yes. A suite, even better. But the bar and lobby aren‘t exactly places to get silly.

Best Feature: The Bourbon Balcony Entertainment suites

Don’t Forget: Beads, lots of them. Tossing them from your balcony may be the best thing you do all weekend.
