2 Day stay

Room wasn't what I thought it would be. There wasn't any windows to look out. The room was located in the center of the building. Had to pay extra $20 fee for amenities. Location is awesome!

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!

Essence Festival Extravaganza

I took a trip to the 2011 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. The trip was amazing and the hotel was in close proximity to many things. Food, clubs, shopping, etc. I stayed at this hotel last year and it was just as amazing. They left little gifts in the room and it made me feel really welcome. The staff was kind and I really enjoyed the location. I didn't need to rent a car, because everything I needed was walking distance. Will definetly be staying there again next year.

Great Location

This hotel is great for those who like to be close to the action like Canal St, Bourbon St. French Quarter & Harrah's Casino but also like a quiet night sleep! Being on the 'uptown' side of Canal St. affords you this quite retreat. However you are only a 5 minute walk to all the FQ attractions. Also, the St. Charles Av railcar (trolley) stops right outside so you can check out the Garden & Warehouse/CBD area's of the city without breaking a sweat.

Good Value/Met Expectations

I had never been to New Orleans and was looking for a place to stay during Mardi Gras that was clean and fairly inexpensive, and this hotel fully met those expectations. The customer service a the front desk was a little slow but friendly. The only complaint was that the elevators were broken for part of our stay. The location was great for the price and I would definatley stay there again.

Royal St. Charles

The hotel was OK and I like being able to park there. In the end it was $100 a night which was a bit steep also, none of the rooms had windows that opened for fresh air...

Weekday Getaway

Spent time with friends; visiting French Quarter and sight seeing downtown New Orleans. Deluxe Queen felt more like economy. Room was small, no mini fridge, but did have TV, coffee pot. Location was a plus.

Not worth the value

Thin walls. Plumbing problems made sleeping intollerable. They decided to cover up the only window in the room with a tv that you weren't able to view from the bed.
