Kind of a Dump

The stay at the hotel was far from enjoyable. The only positive I could find was the location. The rooms were very small with very little accomodations. The staff was very difficult to work with and couldn't seem to understand the slightest requests. Next time I will spend a little extra and go somewhere else.

OUR NEW ORLEANS TRIP

The hotel was really nice and the service excellent. We used valet parking and had excellent, friendly service. The only complaint we had was no soda machines in the hotel so ice water was all that was available to drink. Also no snack machines. The location was great for our sight seeing and Bourbon St. was close by. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast good. Especially the coffee. Oooh so good coffee.

Big Surprise!

My husband and I scheduled a quick get away trip for 3 days so we wanted a reasonably priced hotel. We were surprised with the rooms at Royal St. Charles, we expected to have a poor room for the price. The location was also walking distance to many restaurants. The only thing bad about the room was the bathroom, it was very small. Other than that, the room was good considering the price.
