A Royal Experience

The Omni Royal makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive until departure. The rooms are thoroughly cleaned, have comfortable beds, and a great shower. The 7th floor pool and bar lounge is a great place to relax with a great view of the city & Mississippi River. The friendliness of all staff and a great French Quarter location would be my biggest reasons for a return visit. The only minuses would be a parking fee of $38 per day (includes tax) will add up quickly for lengthy stays. For smaller suites, there's no passing room when the bureau drawers are opened because the end of the bed is right there.

Great Hotel

Hotel was enjoyable. Great starting point for our day trips or just to hang in the quarter. Just be aware of the parking rates if you have a rental and an additional fee but this is to be expected. Service and room were clean and quick. Would stay again and reccommend.

Great French Quarter location!

Speedy check-in. Great staff. Although the bathroom was very small (1 person), the room was very nice, clean and classic with modern elements. Restaurant (The Rib Room) was elegant, friendly staff and great food. Will definitely stay there again.

1-1/2 blocks off Bourbon Street, although far enough from the noise so you can sleep!

I was there for the Essence Music Fest. The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything. The room type was "petite" The room was very small, to small to even hold a cot. However it was quiet and very clean.

Nice hotel, great location

They put me in a room by the elevators - so noisy I couldn't sleep most of the night. BUT they moved me the next day - no questions - and it was quiet. Great staff. Nice hotel. Great location. I'd stay there again if I could specify a room away from the elevators.

Great Stay!

The hotel was very nice and we loved the balcony as it gave a little more space. Even though the rooms and bathroom are a little small, the hotel is very nice and in a great location. It was surprisingly quiet and restful for being right in the French Quarter. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We loved the rooftop pool. This is the second Omni hotel we have stayed at and both hotels were really nice. We were right down the street from Nolas, which is a wonderful restaurant. We walked everywhere, so there was no need to take a cab. It was a fun trip!

Great time.

We had a great time. The rooms are definitely tight. I would've given the hotel 5 stars overall, however the size of the rooms doesn't justify the cost. The location is perfect, the hotel is georgous and the staff was great. The rooftop bar was a nice place to relax and have a cocktail without having to leave the hotel.
