New Orleans is the destination, Royal Sonesta is the location...for the perfect wedding.
Tropical Courtyard and Fleur de Lis Suite
Many of our brides-to-be plan their ceremonies in our tropical courtyard with their receptions in the luxurious Fleur de Lis Suite-which affords an elegant backdrop with multiple options for photos. For centuries, courtyards have been among the most important aspects of any French Quarter property, as the architecture of the neighborhood prevents traditional lawns and gardens. To compensate, property owners dedicated a special part of their homes to become their private oasis where they could show off their green thumbs. The Royal Sonesta's courtyard is cared for by a full time horticulturist, and boasts a tranquil verdi gris fountain, lush ferns, bromeliads and greenery, 2 palm trees, and 4 orange trees.
Three rooms comprise the Fleur de Lis Suite, including the Fleur de Lis A, B, and C along with the Salon. The neutral colors, wall sconces and sparkling chandeliers of the Fleur de Lis Suite provide an elegant glow for all occasions. The size and layout of the adjoining rooms offer a variety of different styles and decor. (The Courtyard and Fleur de Lis Suite are best for weddings of up to 150 persons.)
Grand Ballroom & Evangeline Suite
Our beautiful Grand Ballroom can accommodate receptions up to 600 guests, or an elegant sit-down dinner for 400. The sparkling chandeliers offer romantic and flattering lighting that creates the perfect ambience and setting for your wedding. The Evangeline Suite is perfect for receptions for 160 guests or sit-down dinners of 130.
The Acadia Suite overlooks the tropical courtyard and features access to a private terrace. The private terrace is available when you reserve all of the adjacent guest rooms -- please arrange this with our Wedding Specialist.
