Awards and Testimonials


...all our requests were met quickly and to our satisfaction

"Everyone enjoyed the stay at Royal Sonesta and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. I took a survey the last day and asked our group where they would like to go next year for our meeting and almost everyone wanted to come back to New Orleans. To me, that says a lot about our stay! Food and food service were very good and all our requests were met quickly and to our satisfaction."

...accommodations, food, and service went beyond expectations

"I wanted to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful stay at Royal Sonesta the week of December 17th. The accommodations, food, and service went beyond expectations and my team of 33 thoroughly enjoyed their stay. It is sometimes difficult to please a large group, so high marks are give to RS for a stellar time."

...we received nothing but the highest level of service

"I would like to extend my thanks to you and your entire staff for making our recent meeting an outstanding success. Those that attended are still talking about the attention paid to every detail, the level of hospitality, and the outstanding meals served during our time with you. From the moment my staff, owner/operators and suppliers arrived until our banquet on the last evening and departure, we received nothing by the highest level of service."

...will be hard to replicate the experience as I plan future meetings

"Thank you for your contributions to a very successful Elderhostel Program Provider meeting. Everyone felt well taken care of and enjoyed the beautiful accommodations. It will be hard to replicate the experience as I plan future meetings. Please extend a warm and heartfelt thank you to all of the staff who worked with our group. They did an excellent job and took very good care of our participants. The minor glitches were taken care of in a timely way and with good humor. It was a joy to walk through the front door each time we returned from exploring New Orleans. Thanks again and the best of luck as more and more people discover how wonderful New Orleans still is."
