From the exquisite, Victorian-style ironwork outside, to the flower-decked terraces of the rooftop pool, the Omni Royal Orleans brings its own mix of old and new to the Big Easy. This stately property rises seven stories above the French Quarter, and features French-style rotisserie dining at the Rib Room, while guests can finish off the evening sipping a Sazerac at the adjoining piano bar. Executive writing desks in the 19th century rooms make business a pleasure here, along with the high-speed Wi-Fi in the lobby (fees may apply), and the traditional on-site barber shop and shoeshine service beckon with Southern hospitality.

A Pleasure...

The staff were superb, which made up for the tiny room. When I initially made the reservations, I thought I would be traveling by myself, so I chose the Queen petite (they weren't kidding when they said petite) Unfortunately, I wasn't able to upgrade the room when my mother joined me on this trip. We made do. A few negetives.....VERY EXPENSIVE parking! I paid more for the parking than for the car (parking 32.00 per night_)Expensive internet (9.95 per night)Shopping tip....do your suvveneir shopping at the French Market....much cheaper than the items located within the stores of the french quarter. The doors of the closet were broken. Maintanence came to fix them, but they broke again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The aroma of freshly ground coffee and fresh herbs float through the aisles of the historic French Market, located at the foot of the French Quarter. This wonderful open air market is reminiscent of the European markets so loved by locals and tourists. It is also the perfect package of shopping, dining and music with an Old World ambience. New Orleans' French Market has existed in this French Quarter site since 1791 and has remained true to its authentic mission for 200 years. It is America's oldest public market and to this day plays an important role in the local economy. Walk up and down the five blocks of specialty retail shops (a great place to find that one-of-a-kind souvenir for the folks back home) and a community flea market showcasing locally made jewelry, clothing and artifacts. Look for the local farmers selling the freshest fruits, vegetables and Creole herbs and spices. In the late spring and summer, bring home some succulent Creole tomatoes, a true delight! Located on the edge of the market is Café du Monde, a world renowned outdoor restaurant featuring café au lait (piping hot coffee with steamed milk) and beignets (hot, square donuts topped with powdered sugar). There are casual restaurants for lighter fare and fine dining available at Bella Luna Restaurant, Tujaque's and others. Please note: many restaurants have public restrooms, but most reserve them for paying customers. Public restrooms are located in the outdoor community flea market and on Decatur Street at the French Market.

Great location

If you book through a budget website, you get the budget room. Very small. OK for a single even too small for a couple. Staff friendly. Pool great. Service good.

Cramped Quarters!

The staff at the Omni was great! I should have paid more attention to the word "PETITE" in the room description. The room was VERY small. The bathroom had a pedestal sink and NO PLACE to set anything! I would not stay there again for that reason alone. For 2 people - you need more room!!! No place to leave an open suitcase either.

Perfect!

Everything from check in to check out was perfect. Super friendly and very professional staff. The location was perfect, close enough to Bourbon Street to enjoy but far enough to leave it behind at the end of the night! Right in the middle of everything, but still quiet and peaceful in the rooms.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Just around the corner from the hotel is the Oceana (sp)Grill. Ask for specific directions, it is worth the short walk. Excellent FRESH seafood. No shortages and very reasonably priced. So many places to choose from, just ask the bellmen.....they will not steer you wrong!

Gorgeous hotel, but noisy...

This was a gorgeous hotel in a great location. The staff was top-notch! Really our only complaint is that the walls are super thin and you can hear EVERYTHING - we heard everything from the drunks in the hallway at night trying to find their room to the maids knocking on every door in the morning for room service.

New Orleans

Hotel is Nice. Good Location. Watch the Valet parking very sub par. I understand that parking is nigh but when you are paying $35 a night to park on top of the hotel stay they should take care of your car better. We would not stay there again.

Ideal Location in New Orleans

The hotel was perfectly located for visiting New Orleans. In the French Quarter but far enough from the noise of Bourbon Street to make it nice. Located right in the heart of the antiques and art gallery stores and just a block or so from Jackson Square and three blocks form Canal Street - Central Business District.

Great location!!!

We spent very little time at the hotel. However, it was in a great location. It was a short walk to Bourbon St., Jackson Square, and other great locations. The staff were friendly and the room was cleaned and sheets changed daily. Only complaint is that the cleaning staff threw away some souvenier items. When we reported this to the front desk, the staff didn't seem to care. Other than that, everything was great. We would definitely stay there again.

The perfect location in the French Quarter. A short walk to everyplace you want to go and just far enough away to offer some quiet when you need it.
