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.

Gracing the intersection of St. Louis and Chartres Streets, this regal hotel is one of the finest in the Vieux Carre. Admire the French Quarter's Creole townhouses and Shotgun-style porches as you stroll around the corner to explore the antique shops lining Royal Street. Catch a romantic horse-drawn carriage and circle Jackson Square, snack on beignets along the banks of the Mississippi, visit the breathtaking St. Louis Cathedral, or browse local treasures at the Old French Market.

Omni Royal Orleans trade offs

Price and location were excellent. Came for a conference 2 blocks away and it was an easy wall. Staff was always pleasant. Room was tiny but clean. Biggest problem was screaming (and I do mean screaming) water pipes when anyone used the plumbing. Woke us up with a start several times during the night.

Smack in the middle of the Quarter so wear comfy shoes and wallk to dine or shop safely (with plenty of window shopping available along the way.) avoid Bourbon Street unless you've just turned 21 and want to know what drinking in volume is like.

The Worst Hotel Experience!!!!!

The room was the size of a cracker box, literally the worst I have ever stayed in. When I asked for a bigger room as it was maybe 12 X 20 [...].

Christmas wonderland

My only complaint was the lousy weather. It rained almost all the time I was there. New Orleans has changed a bit since Katrina. There wasn't any Zydeco bands playing on Bourbon Street and far too many strip joints. The food is still good but not quite as good. The hotel was first-rate and decorated to the hilt for the holidays as was the French Quarter. I took public transportation from the airport which took me about an hour to get to the hotel but I saved about $45. The beds have firm matresses but the goose-down pillows were exquisite. I also received a room upgrade when I arrived. GREAT!

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.
