The Big Easy is one of our favorite destinations, and with good reason. The historic Gulf city boasts a rich culture full of Jazz, creole food, and plenty of good times. When we visit New Orleans, we love getting a taste of the town right at our hotel, and these lodging options offer enough to keep us busy before we even hit Bourbon Street! Join us as we take a look at some of favorite hotel amenities in the great city of New Orleans. What's the Big Easy without a little jazz? The Royal Sonesta is Bourbon Street’s swankiest hotel, and guests who want a certain New Orleans experience can take a balcony room and watch an eclectic parade of people go by at all hours. Live jazz and a hopping pool scene add appeal for weary business people who can’t wait to break out of their meetings.
