New Orleans Travel News ( Press Release )
Royal Sonesta Completes Third Phase
New Orleans, USA: January 15, 2002. The Royal Sonesta Hotel, located at 300
Bourbon Street in the historic French Quarter, has recently wrapped up
the third phase of a five-year, $2.5 million per year, renovation of
its guest rooms and suites. The hotel has been targeting 100 rooms per
year of its 500-room inventory, and work has been taking place during
the summer months.
The attractive new decor is traditional in keeping with the Old World,
French Quarter style of the property. Renovations include new stylish
furniture, original artwork, the addition of special touches such as
pillow top mattresses, 250-count sheets, and down blankets. The guest
bathrooms have also been completely remodeled, and custom features
include granite treatments, Italian tile work, and generous vanity
space, including drawers for storage.
Another completed project is the new fitness pavilion, located on the
third floor pool area of the property. The state of the art pavilion
features Cybex Equipment for leg curls and extensions, arm curls and
extensions, treadmills, stair masters and more. In addition, the
hotel added high-speed Internet access to all guestrooms last year.
The hotel also has 20 flexible meeting and function rooms and 22
suites - all of which have been recently renovated - including a 5,000
square-foot Grand Ballroom.
The 500-room Royal Sonesta is within steps of world-famous
restaurants, antique shops, jazz clubs and premier tourist
attractions. Its atmosphere reflects a strong European influence and
Southern charm. The hotel surrounds a tropical courtyard, just off an
elegant marble lobby. The guestrooms offer views of the beautifully
landscaped pool, secluded patios or French Quarter life.
