    Royal Sonesta New Orleans has officially opened the doors to its newly reimagined Grand Ballroom. The event space was remodeled by Atlanta-headquartered full-service design group, Design One Studio, and is the culmination of the renowned hotel’s multiyear redesign project. The revamped ballroom adds an enhanced dose of luxury and sophistication directly in the heart of the French Quarter on Bourbon Street.

    In keeping with the hotel’s prime and luxurious Vieux Carre positioning, the more than 5,000 square foot room’s design draws inspiration from a softer sophisticated side, featuring an incandescent subtle color palette with traditional patterns. The feeling of the space is romantic, glamorous and updated, integrating seamlessly with the existing interior, while complementing the broader architectural elements of the landmark hotel.

    New updates to the ballroom and additional meeting space also include a state-of-the-art banquet kitchen, along with completely upgraded audio technology system controls, plus other amenities. 

    “We’re extremely proud to showcase our reimagined Grand Ballroom,” said Royal Sonesta New Orleans General Manager Alfred Groos. “Everywhere you turn, there’s a fresh take on modern elegance, which reflects our well-known and admired standard of luxury,” he added. “It’s a spectacular new backdrop for events, and we look forward to welcoming guests for many occasions.”
