A fine place for a fine experience

Our stay at the Omni Royal Orleans was most enjoyable. The location couldn't be better, in the heart of the French Quarter. We chose to dine in the Rib Room in the hotel; an excellent restaurant with great ambiance. The prime rib was the very best we have ever had. . The staff at the Royal Orleans was most friendly and helpful.

Great Romantic Weekend Away

The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant and bar are extraordinary. The staff is friendly and attentive. The rooms are a bit small, but that's to be expected with historical hotels. Right in the heart of the French Quarter. This is a great place to get away from it all!

Perfect location! Great stay!

Right in the heart of everything. A short walk to anything you would want to do but two blocks away from the noise of Bourbon street. Quiet comfortable rooms. Attentive staff. One of the best French Quarter restaurants on street level. Would stay here every time

A nice hotel in a great location

The Omni is an old school New Orleans hotel, large, charming and very well maintained. The rooms are small. The location in the middle of the Quarter couldn't be better and the staff is very nice and professional. A very good choice if you want to stay close to the action.

Great hotel for first time visitors

This beautiful hotel is in a convenient location in the French Quarter. Close to antique shops and Jackson Square, and many other sites. The room was large, quiet, and very comfortable. The hotel restaurant is also very nice. Not knowing much about New Orleans, this was a fantastic choice for me and my husband.

Fell in love on our first visit

This was our first time in New Orleans and we fell in love immediately. This hotel was absolutely stunning. I travel a lot for business and the bed/pillows were one of the most comfortable compared to the many hotels I've stayed in. The hotel had all of the best amenities as well. The staff was extremely helpful and always courteous. The location was perfectly central to everything. My fiancé and I will definitely be staying here again when we visit.
