A good hotel

A nice place that was a short walk to the convention center and good restaurants. Staff was helpful and friendly. While the St. Charles street car line was next to the hotel, the trolleys did not hurt sleep.

Great place in the CBD

I stayed at this hotel for two purposes, a conference at the Convention Center and then to explore New Orleans with friends. I found the location of the hotel to be within walking distance of the Convention Center and the French Quarter. Most things were 10 minute walk. Also, it was conveniently located near cable car lines (St. Charles) and two blocks from Canal street. The staff at the front desk is amazing -- super friendly and helpful when trying to plan things. I cannot stress that enough. The only downside to the hotel was that it did not have any of the amenities that hotels usually have (fridge in room, pool, spa, etc.). Overall, it was a good place to sleep.

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.

Great

Clean, modern, great location. My room was a bit small, but I didn't mind. And I loved the PJ's coffee shop in the lobby.

Great Location

The hotel is well located near the French Quarter and Casino and a moderate walk to the Convention Center. The staff was very helpful and the lobby was well appointed. I was on the top floor (10th) and looked forward to a view. The room was small with no window. It might be worth asking for one of the rooms with windows if you stay here or if not getting a low floor as the elevators were very slow.

Room in the Datk

[...] I had reserved a "deluxe suite". The room was a small one-room accommodation without windows (!), a leaking toilet, no dresser with drawers, and a tv remote that worked every now and then. The free wireless internet connection worked very well and the bed was comfortable, but that is about all I liked about this "boutique hotel". My room did not look anything like the pictures of the "suites" on the hotel's website, was not a suite, and was not "spacious". Disappointing hotel in nearly every aspect. I stay in hotels nearly every other week and this one ranked toward the bottom of the list.
