Great hotel for first time visitors

This beautiful hotel is in a convenient location in the French Quarter. Close to antique shops and Jackson Square, and many other sites. The room was large, quiet, and very comfortable. The hotel restaurant is also very nice. Not knowing much about New Orleans, this was a fantastic choice for me and my husband.

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.

Very nice place

Wir had the premium King room with a view. The room was equipped with a comfortable lounge chair and a reading lamp. It was a perfect place to read the morning paper and have a cup of coffee. Nice start for the day. The distance to the French Quarter was perfect, one block away. The hotel was quiet and overall wir had an enjoyable stay in N.O.

Good french quarter location

It's an old hotel, so the rooms are small. We upgraded this last visit and the room was still small, I could not really see any difference. The hotel is kept perfectly clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's pet friendly and we have taken our dog(s) several times.

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.

Great Location and Staff

First time in New Orleans. The Hotel is situated right in the heart the French quarter. It allowed easy and quick access to Bourbon St. and local attractions. The staff was amazing and very accommodating.

Great!

Rooftop pool deck is an oasis from walking around. Staff is awesome and very accommodating. Perfect location for all your needs in French Quarter without being right on Bourbon. This is our second stay and we will continue to go back.

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.
