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.

Best hotel in the heart of EVERYTHING!

By far, the best hotel in New Orleans French Quarter and Bourbon area! My friend and I picked this hotel the day we arrived in New Orleans after our "bargin hotel" was a flop and we needed a plan B. We found this hotel and the price was amazing!We were 2 blocks from French Quarter and 3 blocks or so from Bourbon street! Valet service was amazing and the beds were VERY comfortable! Cound not ask for a better hotel in a better location!

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.

We loved our stay!

We were in New Orleans for an Ace Hardware convention in February. This was our second stay at this hotel. The hotel's location is perfect for those who want to experience the energy of the French Quarter. The staff was very accommodating and the hotel itself mirrors the gentility of the old south. We loved our stay.

Great service perfect location

We loved our stay. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests. I give honorable mention to the door men and to the young lady working the coffee shop who got my select member grapefruit juice. One suggestion is to maybe add a cookie or something with light to eat with the select member offering. I did love your coffee and grapefruit juice though. The beds were comfortable and they accommodated all our special pillow requests. I got a foam pillow. The bottle of champagne was also a nice touch from Lila who was always helpful when I talked to her on the phone.

Go get coupons and information from the Jean Lafitte French Quarter Visitor Center. One coupon is good for a free bottle of wine at Red Fish and another coupon good for a free entree at Crescent Brewery.

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!
