Event Location

New Orleans is the destination, Royal Sonesta is the location...for the perfect wedding.

Royal Sonesta New Orleans Courtyard Fountain

Royal Sonesta New Orleans Fleur de Lis

Tropical Courtyard and Fleur-de-lis Suite

Many of our couples 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.)
