A great place to stay

We had a great stay. My wife gave me a trip to New Orleans for my 60th birthday. The second day the manger sent up a beautiful delicious cup cake on a plate that had Happy Birthady written in chocolate on the plate. With a candel. It made our trip. Thanks Omni Royal.

Nice place!

Everything went smoothly from and easy check in, restful nights sleep, and an even easier check out. The view overlooking the courtyard was beautiful, along with the view from the 7th floor patio area. Magnificent views of New Orleans. I attended a conference at the hotel as well and all staff catering the event were polite and accommodating.

Great hotel, great location

We traveled for our anniversary, and were very pleased with the Omni. The hotel was lovely, the staff helpful, and the location great. We'd definitely stay there again, and recommend it to others.

Nice hotel, great location

They put me in a room by the elevators - so noisy I couldn't sleep most of the night. BUT they moved me the next day - no questions - and it was quiet. Great staff. Nice hotel. Great location. I'd stay there again if I could specify a room away from the elevators.

Omni Royal Stay in New Orleans

The Omni Royal of New Orleans is a wonderful hotel, centrally located to all my favorite places in the French Quarter. It is just 2 1/2 blocks away from Jackson Square, and many, many of my favorite restaurants. I walked everywhere! The roof top pool and fitness center was a real bonsus as was the business center down by the Rib Room. The staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly. On top of that it is a very elegant hotel.

dated rooms that are very small

The lobby was beautiful and the service was good but the room was way too small... hardly enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was really small. Carpets were worn both in the halls and in the room. Not really worth the price.

I was there for the Essence Music Fest. The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything. The room type was "petite" The room was very small, to small to even hold a cot. However it was quiet and very clean.

Pros/Cons

The room I stayed in was probably the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. I booked a Petite Queen Suite thinking it had "250 square feet, one queen bed, a sitting area with a queen-sized sofa bed, and large bathroom." It only had a queen bed, a night stand, small desk, armoir w/ a tiny tv, small closet, & a tiny bathroom. It felt like only 120-150 square feet. The bathroom floor looked like it wasn't cleaned. There was dust flying out of the air vents in the room. The soft sheets & hotel location were the only good things about it. I won't be staying there again.
