Jazz Fest stay

The valet parking is worth it. And the staff was wonderful. A little pricey, but was worth it for the convenience of the location. We could walk to all of our destinations and didn't even move the car the whole trip. Only downside was there was no frig/microwave in the room.

is it okay?

Is it okay to charge for the internet and long distance calls if the customer does not use them? In this hotel they charge for it. Room was small, the bathroom was even smaller, simply tiny, not enough space for two. Best thing is location and cleanness of the room, I can't complain about these.

Jazzfest Fanatic!!

I was originally supposed to come down with friends, but everyone canceled on me at the last minute so I ended up coming alone. I had reservations at another hotel but canceled those and booked The Royal St Charles..I was so glad I did! The hotel is wonderful..and I got a very good deal..the rooms are very clean,well presented.the staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel is located in a perfect walking distance from the French quarter and other attractions..only about 10 minute drive from the festival site..I hated to leave! But they have a mandatory 9.95 amenities package and valet parking is 32$ a nite! Didn't care much for either of those but other than that it's a great place to stay!,

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You may want to Get there after business hours to find close street parking to avoid the 32$ valet parking or 16$ self parking at their garage! But not always guaranteed to find a spot!

Close to French Quarter

St Charles street is Royal street on the other side of Canal Street. This right next to Burbon Street in the French quarter. But adults will prefer Frenchman Street entertainment. The hotel is ok but they charge for parking and Internet. But that's New Orleans.

Great stay

My boyfriend and I have been going to New Orleans for St. Party's day for four years. We have always stayed at the Roosevelt - which is amazing. This year we were looking for a better deal and decided on the Royal St. Charles. The reviews were okay but we were worried our room would be small. It wasn't, it was great. Hotel looks like it has been renovated recently, it was super modern and trendy, staff was helpful, and you can buy get coffee right in the lobby. We will definitly stay again!

Total Experience Was Aweful

The hotel moved my reservation to their "sister" hotel. It was 8 blocks away, dirty and didn't even have hot water. The front desk staff at the Royal was rude and not helpful and they refused to let me speak to a manager. They didn't even offer to cover the cost of transportation to the other hotel.

Good location

I had a good stay & experience at Royal St. Charles. The down side would be the price, although it wasn't bad I've seen it advertised for less. And with the mandatory resort fee, its all the same to me as a consumer. So a rate a bit cheaper would definitely help balance that out
