The Hotel offers a lot in terms of amenities. There's a Jazz Club, a coffee shop, a bar and a restaurant all attached to the property. However, the views from the balcony down Conti Street left something to be desired. Couldn't help but feel a little cheated by it considering the premium price we paid for the experience. Overall solid stay but I wouldn't feel the NEED to go back. Would score it 7.5 out of 10 stars.

The room I booked was not what i received. The hotel literally gave me a completely incorrect room after I traveled out of state for a seminar. As a doctor I will be filing complaints to both travelocity as well as the hotel. I ended up at the Roosevelt (far superior service. They got me a room and a discount due to my circumstances ehen they didn’t have to while the royal sonesta has yet to refund my money and 100% blamed travelocity. I have proof of the room I confirmed. Not to mention the room there was dirty, cigarettes in the ashtrays on the balcony from a previous persons stay. I highly suggest this hotel and Travelocity rectify this due to the complete chaos, disregard for even providing the correct room and not rectifying the situation. The Roosevelt went above and beyond when they made no mistakes! I’m absolutely livid and disgusted at the service at royal sonesta as well as travelocity because the royal sonesta says it’s their fault. I will never use either again and I will tell all my patients, friends, family and file complaints!
