Excellent Experience

Miami, Florida

This hotel has the perfect location. The staff was friendly and welcoming which made the stay that much more pleasant. The room was extremely clean. The convenience of the desire oyster bar was a plus because the restaurant is amazing! Could not have asked for a better stay!

Not so Royal Sonesta...

I really wanted to write a good review about this hotel being that I has a certain "standard", but I have to be honest. I stayed at the Royal Sonesta with my best friend for one night. We had just gotten back from an eight day cruise and wanted to spend a day in NOLA. Our check in was smooth; our intent was to have the hotel hold our bags since we got in so early, but the receptionist allowed us to check in around 10am. She said that there was a room with two queen beds available so we took it. All was good (keyword: was). We went out for the day and came back in, took showers and went out that night. We got back to the hotel around 2:30am and while I was in the bathroom, I heard my friend scream. I yelled out what happened and she said that there was a roach on the desk in the room. A ROACH! I couldn't believe it! My friend took a picture of it for proof. I tried calling the front desk while she packed up our bags because we refused to stay in that room. No one picked up. I called about 4 more times to no avail, so I went downstairs. There was no one at the front desk. I asked security if he could assist and he called someone on a walkie talkie. When receptionist came to the front, I told her the what happened and she said that she can send someone up to remove the roach. REMOVE?! She said it like it was a norm. No ma'am, you need to EXTERMINATE because who knows if it started reproducing. I asked for another room and she gave me two new keys. The new room was on the other side of the floor. We had to walk down a long hallway, turn a corner, down another long hall, turn a corner, to the end of another hall with all our bags and no help was sent to assist us. I refused to go back downstairs to request for help because they have no one picking up the phones that late. The new room was identical to the first one, so we investigated it before we went to bed. The next morning when we were checking out, the receptionist asked how was our stay and I told her what happened. She couldn't believe it and was extremely apologetic. She said that the most she could do is refund us $50 and if we were staying another day, should would do more. However, I will NEVER stay at that hotel again.
