The Royal Sonesta Returns its “Royal Snownesta” Theme this Holiday Season

The annual "Royal Snownesta" theme will make a comeback at the Royal Sonesta this 2021 holiday season.

Located in the beloved French Quarter at 300 Bourbon St., hotel guests are in for a lovely festive décor displayed all over the property, exquisite fare that will feature chef-inspired seasonal menus, and entertainment for everyone to enjoy. Lots of people love wearing those festive-looking pajamas around this time of year, so no doubt the 2nd annual Santa's Pajama Party will be a blast for them.

The official launch of Royal Snownesta will be on Thanksgiving weekend, along with holiday décor that will be a sight for sore eyes. Hotel guests and visitors will want to do a double-take once they see the classic touches and a gallery of real (yes, real!) Christmas trees showcased throughout the hotel's eye-catching lobby. Lights that scream "fa-la-la-la-la" and sparkly seasonal decorations gracing the interior courtyard will shine as bright as the smile you'll be wearing. The celebration and the lovely display will continue through New Year's Eve.

Leave some room in your stomachs before feasting at the Royal Snownesta. Located inside the hotel at 777 Bienville St. is Restaurant R'evolution, where the food is plentiful. What are you most thankful for? If you thought 'brunch,' you're a winner! A brunch menu will be served all Thanksgiving Day with available seating from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Another thing you'll be thankful for is the extended lunch service on select Fridays throughout December. Restaurant R'evolution will put emphasis on a Louisiana holiday tradition of réveillon, a long dinner held in the evening preceding Christmas Day and New Year's Eve, with a prix fixe menu on both holidays. You will also be equipped with a full holiday menu that is chef-selected all throughout December. Visit RevolutionNola.com for reservations, holiday party bookings, and more info on operation hours.

Select December weekends are going to be action-packed with Santa's Pajama Party at Restaurant R'evolution. Encourage the kiddos to wear their favorite holiday PJ's and look the part for Santa. Beware of that sugar rush, though—they'll be decorating holiday cookies! And while they're occupied with that, you grown-ups can enjoy bottomless mimosas or mocktails and treats from Restaurant R'evolution's chef-inspired menu. Tickets to Santa's Pajama Party can be purchased here.

Try not to get into too much on select Fridays in December because The Jazz Playhouse will add some pleasant sounds to the celebration, along with Tease the Season Burlesque Ballroom shows. Be sure to stick around and check out Trixie Minx Productions and a modern spin on classic 1960s Bourbon Street Burlesque Show. Really get into this so that you can toss back your holiday cocktails like the signature Toasted Pecan Old Fashioned, the Baby Grand, the High Note, and La Mure.
