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.

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.

The Worst Hotel Experience!!!!!

The room was the size of a cracker box, literally the worst I have ever stayed in. When I asked for a bigger room as it was maybe 12 X 20 [...].

Omni Royal - New Orleans

The room was clean and the hotel was very nice. However, the room was no bigger than a closet and no place to put your clothes. In addition we requested a luggage cart to bring up a cooler filled with water and we were told that they do not give them out for those purposes. They were not polite about it either. The last thing, I know parking is a premium in New Orleans but they do not give you a break to park at the hotel at all. I would not return to this hotel.

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.

Cramped Quarters!

The staff at the Omni was great! I should have paid more attention to the word "PETITE" in the room description. The room was VERY small. The bathroom had a pedestal sink and NO PLACE to set anything! I would not stay there again for that reason alone. For 2 people - you need more room!!! No place to leave an open suitcase either.

short vacation

Great location, a couple blocks from Jackson square. Rooms are outdated and the facility needs an overhaul, but overall good enough for a short trip. Word of advice, ask for a higher floor since any rooms below the top level which don't face the street will face a wall instead.

Were very uncomfortable in the room

The Hotel, staff, location and cleanliness was great but the small size of the room was horrible to us and I felt 175.00 a night for it was rediculas! Along with no convience of access to outside where my husband could smoke - we really couldn't wait to leave and I really dreaded going back to the small room each night. The high cost of parking was also very inappropriate, we have stayed many places in the Fench Quarter of New Orleans and never paid over 15.00 a day. We will NEVER stay there again:(

Friendly staff

Beautiful old hotel that is showing her age , particularly the carpet in the halls and the bed. The room and bathroom were small but clean but the mattress was horrible. Both my husband and I woke up in the middle of the night with a backache. We could not get comfortable for the remainder of the night. The location was close to everything in the French quarter and the staff was very friendly. We want to go back to NOLA when it gets a little cooler but we will be staying in the garden district.
