This hotel is only a 15 walk from the middle of the French Quarter. Plus jazz bars line up and down Frenchman St. The famed Spotted Cat is literally a block away so the location would be great for music lovers who don’t want any of the Bourbon Street raunchiness. The room was normal but the far end of room suddenly dropped down to 5 ft so I constantly bumped my head when I walked towards it. The bathroom is very classy and clean and the shower was nice too. I think it’s the best part of the room bar none. The breakfast was nothing to write home about. Pastries and yogurt with a waffle maker. But your in Nola! Explore the endless restaurants and cafes in the area. All of them are good! I’d still recommend the hotel since it’s walkable to everything.

Stayed 3 days at the end of January. Overall Hotel in good shape , staff are wonderful. I had 2 reservations , one night prepaid , 2 nights paid at hotel. They charged me for night I pre- paid night i, called GM 4x , left messages and GM never had decency to return call, email or return money If I was owner I would not keep GM who does not personally take care of guest complaints. Joke Is Gm running a 18 room hotel with no restaurant, your not running 250 room hotel with a few restaurants with no time to breathe . I know I've done it and still handled any guest complaints.

We had a great visit. Everyone was kinda and and helpful especially Jay and Ashley. The beds are super comfortable and the location is perfect. We were able to walk to most things and enjoyed all the wonderful music heard throughout the day and evening.

Popped in by chance when we were wondering around Frenchman street. The barman is incredibly friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is great with a piano player. Lovely spot and we will be back for NYE! What a great find.

Royal Frenchman hotel was clean, comfortable, friendly, and on one of the best corners in New Orleans. We stayed in a king room on the 2nd floor and loved having a balcony. It was shared, but it was a quiet, long weekend (Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year to visit). Kat and Josh were fun, attentive bartenders.

I have to say this was by far the best and most fun bar experience in NOLA!! Chris, Graham, Joshua and Javier were the bestest! They were so engaging, made-up some specialty cocktails and just made us feel like we were home! I can’t thank them enough for a great time!! A must stop!

I had the worst hotel experience of my life at Royal Frenchmen. The trouble started the moment I arrived when I was told that my room had been changed from my third floor suite to room 101, which is right next to the public bathroom and from what I could tell the only room in the same building as the bar. I went into my room and looked around. Boarded up windows and a shower with no shower head in the bathroom. I went back to the concierge, let him know there was no way I would be staying in this room and asked for a refund. He apologized for the room and told me not to worry and that I would be "accommodated". He put me up in a double on the second floor, which I happily accepted. My next day was fine, and the second floor room was perfect. No problem, right? Wrong. I came up to my room after a conference I was attending around 7pm, only to have the room completely cleared of my belongings. I went down to the reception desk and was told my things had been packed up and moved to room 101 in order to accommodate another guest. I went back to my room and saw my belongings (including my ironed shirts and pants) stuffed into two trash bags and tossed on the mattress. My medication which I had left on the sink in my previous room was gone. Furious, I went right back to the reception desk and asked what on earth they were thinking treating me and my belongings this way. To try and make amends, the guy working the reception desk offered my a bottle of $10 bourbon. Gee, thanks. After making a phone call to check availability at a different hotel, he informed me that there was nothing more he could do. There was a large conference in town, and no other hotels had availability. Accepting my fate, I moped back to my dungeon storage closet room. That night I experienced roughly two hours of sleep. The bar of the Royal Frenchmen was located right next to my room, as well as the public bathroom for that bar. Until 3:30 am, I was essentially trying to sleep in a room at a college house party. Absolutely terrible. The morning I left, I was told I would be receiving the same rate as the room I had originally selected, in 305. The rooms were night and day difference. I asked for a reduced rate, since the room was nothing like the one I had booked. They told me there was nothing they could do, but gave me the number of the general manager and told me to give him a call the following week. He has yet to return my calls. Under no circumstances would I recommend this place to anyone. The experience I had in room 101 and the complete lack of respect I was given by the staff were laughable. No, really. Everyone I tell the story to ends up nearly in tears laughing because of how absurd my entire stay was. New Orleans is a great city, and I can't wait to go again. Safe to say next time I go I will not be staying at the Royal Frenchmen.

My husband and I are military evacuees from Hurricane Michael and came across an amazing experience at the Royal Frenchmen Hotel. This hotel has given us an experience we will never forget. Beautiful courtyard, classy rooms and a fancy bar! Everyone here has been very accommodating. Hugh, Andrew, Josh and Kat, thank you! -Dennis and Ashley Wolf

My wife and I decided to make a spur of the moment trip over to New Orleans for the evening and decided to try the Royal Frenchmen. What an excellent choice! Even though our room faced Frenchmen Street, there was no noise from the music down below. The hotel has obviously been renovated withing the last two years, and everything was in perfect working order. Our room was clean and comfortable, the staff were all extremely polite, and even offered suggestions on Sunday morning to a restaurant a couple of blocks away for breakfast that turned out superb!

We had an amazing time in New Orleans staying at the Royal Frenchman last weekend. The location is perfect...close to everything but not so close that you can't get a good nights sleep. The beds are so comfortable and the staff is great. The bartenders are super nice and attentive. I could spend an entire day just looking at all the beautiful art around the place! Thanks for a great stay.
