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.

Great staff & location. Rooms are adequate-- clean & functional, but very small. Bed was comfy. Tv was tiny & dated if you care about such things.

Omni Royal - New Orleans

I wish I could be writing something different. Unfortunately, the hotel was a bit of a disappointment. We thoght we were staying in a 5 star hotel, imagined it to have state of the art rooms, ammenities and facilities. It does seem like the place is very old and is in an urgent need for renovations, especially the rooms. Our room's air conditioning was not working properly so we had to be changed to a different room, different to the one we booked, but with 100 degree weather we did not care. Overall the experience was OK but not at par to what we expected.

dated rooms that are very small

The lobby was beautiful and the service was good but the room was way too small... hardly enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was really small. Carpets were worn both in the halls and in the room. Not really worth the price.

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.

Parents Great Escape!

Check-in was a breeze! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel location is fabulous and the room was very clean! On the flip-side, the room is small-but most of our time was spent out and about. The worst thing I can say about this hotel is DONT ORDER ANY FOOD! We ordered lunch and dessert one afternoon and we definitely regretted it! The food was at first site not very appealing, but we were so hungry we got passed the looks and bit into the driest and overcooked food ever. We were looking forward to dessert, but the chocolate moouse was more like stale pudding--YUCK! Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but the kitchen could use some work.

Fee for wi-wi

Wonderful hotel, but really, do you have to charge $10 more for wi-fi??? After paying over $300 for a room, you ought to include computer access. Staff was extremely accommodating and we just pulled up, they valet end our car and luggage.

Great family getaway in the heart of French quarter

Clean, safe and walking distance to everything. This hotel is outstanding. Couldn't find a more convenient location,better amenities (including heated rooftop pool which was a big hit for kids), and helpful staff. We've stayed at at least 4 other hotels in/around New Orleans, but will always return to Omni Royal Orleans from now on.
