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.

Gorgeous hotel, but noisy...

This was a gorgeous hotel in a great location. The staff was top-notch! Really our only complaint is that the walls are super thin and you can hear EVERYTHING - we heard everything from the drunks in the hallway at night trying to find their room to the maids knocking on every door in the morning for room service.

An Amazing Deal

Lovely hotel in a perfect location in the French quarter -- amazingly inexpensive--probably because we went in August. Lobby and restaurant were lovely--the breakfast/brunch is a great value--and fabulous! Roof top pool was beautiful as well and we enjoyed it with the august heat. The only minor complaint was that the room was quite small--but very pretty and comfortable. This was probably the reason in part for the low rate for a high end hotel.

Great Stay

In town for the work boat show and this was close enough to the convention center and far enough from bourbon st to let me sleep. Great room, great staff.

Great location

This historic hotel is very nice. The room was small and there wasn't much space in the bathroom, but it was easy walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is kept up well, and the staff is friendly.

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.

Romantic hotel just far enough from Bourbon Street

I was looking for a hotel for my husband and I to stay at for a quick trip to New Orleans and this was the perfect choice. It is a beautiful hotel, great rooms, great pool. We did not eat here, so I cannot comment on the food. The location was ideal for us - right in the French Quarter but far enough away from the chaos of Bourbon Street.

Short but nice stay

Grabbed a last minute one-night stay at an incredible price. The location was outstanding (although parking predictably expensive) and the feel of the place was classy/very New Orleans French Quarter. The room I reserved (petit queen) was European in size and truly wouldn't have been comfortable for 2 ... having said this, I knew what I was getting into before I booked it and found it very comfortable. The room and floor I was on was in need of "refreshing." I was told by the bartender that the hotel was in the process of renovating floor-by-floor, which is good to know. The bathrooms are typical of an old hotel - and part of the experience ... not much counter-space in this room - but again part of the package if you want the French Quarter feel (I'm sure there are exceptions but not at this price and with this level of class!).

Try lunches at some of the greatest restaurants nearby ... they often have fixed price menus offering some of the best meal (3 courses and up) on this planet for affordable prices!
