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.

The people at this hotel were so nice, bathrooms small ,but the rooms were clean .

The service at this hotel was great everyone goes out of their way to help you with anything you need from just a cold water for while your walking to where to go to eat. They were so nice to my mom she is 77 and they watched out for her to make sure she was safe and comfortable.

A week in the French Quarter

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel (Sun-Fri) to celebrate her 40th birthday. It was our first trip to NOLA. The best thing this hotel has going for it is that it is centrally located in the French Quarter. It's a block off of Bourbon St and two blocks off of Decatur. We didn't rent a car and walked everywhere - which is how we came to appreciate the hotels location. The hotel staff was very friendly and the concierge helped us set up several tours. We had a balcony room, and enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching people walk by. That also made the room noisier at night with the traffic, people, and construction in the area. The room itself wasn't anything special and the bathroom, while adequate was a little small. We did use the heated rooftop pool one day and it appears to be saltwater. It was clean and well maintained. I did feel like the hotel tried to nickel and dime us a bit - there was bottled water in the room - for $7. The new-release movies were $17, though they did have some value movies for $5. We purchased liters of water across the street at a liquor store for $1.50, but were unable to store them in the refrigerator because it was stocked as a mini-bar and had a break seal that we left intact. We kept our purchased water cold in the ice bucket. This was not an inexpensive hotel room, but seemed to be one of the nicer hotels in the French Quarter. Without any other French Quarter hotel experiences, I'd recommend it for its location, cleanliness, and great staff.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

In general, food is great everywhere - seafood and local cuisine are excellent. Our favorites were Oceana and Gumbo Pot. Bourbon street was a bit of a disappointment and had a 3rd world Las Vegas feel to it. Rita's Tequila House was a nice find on Bourbon street though. We wanted a break from the local cuisine and they serve great Mexican food that was a little different than we're used to back home, and make a decent margarita. We had dinner and a few drinks there one night and then went back two days later to spend the afternoon drinking margaritas - YUM!

Stayed at the Omni for 3 nights and could not have been happier with it. The location is perfect, Rib room very good. Join the select club for free wifi plus well worth getting a room with a balcony to hear the jazz coming up from the street.

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.

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.
