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 hotel, in great location

Nice pool with great view of the city. Rooms were slightly cramped, but well maintained. Hotel was the best of four others I have stayed at in NOLA.

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.

OMNI

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.

Pros/Cons

The room I stayed in was probably the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. I booked a Petite Queen Suite thinking it had "250 square feet, one queen bed, a sitting area with a queen-sized sofa bed, and large bathroom." It only had a queen bed, a night stand, small desk, armoir w/ a tiny tv, small closet, & a tiny bathroom. It felt like only 120-150 square feet. The bathroom floor looked like it wasn't cleaned. There was dust flying out of the air vents in the room. The soft sheets & hotel location were the only good things about it. I won't be staying there again.

Excellent!

The Omni is right in the French Quarter, but in a safe and quieter area. It is close to everything we wanted. The staff was as good as we've seen at higher priced hotels.

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!

Omni Royal Hotel Review

Loved the hotel and it's location. Room was comfortable and clean but small. Pool was adequate but fitness center could have been larger with more equipment. I would book this hotel again in a heartbeat.
