O.k. For the price

Nothing special about thIs hotel. Satisfied with the room for the price and location. Walking distance to many attractions, street car stop in front of hotel, staff was o.k. (not friendly, but not rude) room was very small, still not sure where vallet parks the vehicle, but it was a good, affordable place to stay to tour. I probably wouldnt stay again though. There are alot nicer places for just a little more money.

Near Bourbon St

The overall stay was very good because the staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was good and bad. The proximity to burbon street and troley made it a good location. The noise from the troley and street made it a little hard to sleep. The room size was on the small side but it was very clean. I would stay again but would ask for a room on a higher floor.

Royal St. Charles was wonderfull........

Staff was very friendly. They let us Valet Park and stored our luggage until Check-in Time at no charge. Room was very clean and bed was very comfy. Other reviews said that the bathroom was small. It is true but we did not find it inconvenient. Valet Parking attendant took 15 minutes, not 45 that we saw on line before we booked. Perfect walking distance to Bourbon Street, casino, and all other attractions. We would definitely stay again. For the price, very nice hotel stay.

NOLA Hotel

The hotel is very busy with many guests. It is a great location within walking distance to the French Quarter. It is perfect for a weekend trip and it is very reasonable pricing.

But for valet parking we had to pay 29Dollar/night insolently!!And also they remodeled the breaksfast area. so we must eat our breakfast in the lobby without seats. The breakfast self was awful.Just muffins and coffee. Nothing else.

Great Location

The desk personnel was very friendly and helpful. The valet could have been more helpful. All the parking places were taken and we didn't know what to do with our car. He was talking on the phone and didn't acknowledge our presence and we had to wait to ask him...even then he wasn't particularly helpful. The valet that brought our car back at the end of our stay was friendlier and prompt. We've stayed all over New Orleans and the stay was average. I would recommend this hotel for the price. It was a cute little room, but not well maintained. There were stains on the walls and furniture and a little mold around the bathtub. We loved the location as it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do and was on the street car route for when we didn't want to walk too far, but the street car made our room very noisy.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Take the street car to the museums. It is a pretty long walk and I wouldn't recommend walking it after dark.

exactly what I expected

It was exactly what I expected from a 3 star hotel. No negative comments. It was clean, the king bed room was large, can't beat the price for the location. Breakfast is only muffins and coffee, no milk, juice, fruit or anything hot!!
