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.

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!

In the HEART of the Quarter...

Stayed here several times before,,so I knew what to expect.. Nice hotel ..great location ... Rooms are a little small but when in New Orleans you don't spend much time in your room ... Rib Room for dinner while always nice was very dissappointing ths time ..Hopefully just a bad night .. Did try the breakfast buffet my last morning there ...definately worth the 20 dollars..

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 old hotel, but showing it's age

Beautiful historic hotel, but some problems with plumbing and the rooms are not modern at all. However, they knocked 100 off of the bill for everyone in the hotel for the day the plumbing was messed up. Location simply couldn't be better.

Ideal Location in New Orleans

The hotel was perfectly located for visiting New Orleans. In the French Quarter but far enough from the noise of Bourbon Street to make it nice. Located right in the heart of the antiques and art gallery stores and just a block or so from Jackson Square and three blocks form Canal Street - Central Business District.

Great Location great service

The perfect location in the French Quarter. A short walk to everyplace you want to go and just far enough away to offer some quiet when you need it.

Great Hotel!

This hotel was in the best location to enjoy Mardi Gras. Close enough to walk to all activities, yet far enough away to enjoy a bit of quiet.

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.
