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.

Perfect vacation spot

This was our third visit to the Omni Royal Hotel. We've travelled to New Orleans many times to attend Jazzfest or the French Quarter Festival and this is our favorite hotel. The location is great, the staff friendly and the pool area with an obervation deck overlooking the Missippi is beautiful. The rooms are smallish but clean and nicely furnished. We cannot wait to return.

Excellent Location

This was a perfect location for our visit to all the French Quarter sites. We could walk to everything and it was quiet even being only one block off Bourbon St. Excellent, friendly staff. Enjoyed the Rib Room & bar in the Hotel. So many Great places to eat that we'll have to go back to enjoy some more. Court of Two Sisters had the best Bloody Marys.

Great Hotel!

This hotel was in the best location to enjoy Mardi Gras. Close enough to walk to all activities, yet far enough away to enjoy a bit of quiet.

Good french quarter location

It's an old hotel, so the rooms are small. We upgraded this last visit and the room was still small, I could not really see any difference. The hotel is kept perfectly clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's pet friendly and we have taken our dog(s) several times.

Very Helpful

The Omni Royal Orleans staff kept us notified on the latest hurricane Gustav updates. Updates would be placed under our door so we knew that the airport was closing and we needed change our flights, when the hotel would be closing, and where we needed to go to be evacuated to the airport. Having this information alleviated a lot of pressure during a stressful time.

Very Good Staff

Nice hotel in a good location. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Room was a little on the "old" side and there was no phone book in the room. Mattress was a little soft yet it was adequate for twon night stay. Paid too much per night for what we got and they charged we $7.00 to use their computer for about 10 minutes. This is the only place if ever visited that charged me for using their computer. TV was nice and they had a coffe maker in the room. This was very useful. It was trying to be elegant hotel but it didn't quite succed at it.
