Stayed in New Orleans for one night for a business trip. Jay was amazing and got me some great locations to see for my evening in New Orleans. The room was amazing and everything was clean. A perfect location and great staff.

We arrived at the hotel and walked into the beautifully renovated lobby and hotel. We were greeted by Jay, who happily shared all the great places to eat and go. Jay carried our luggage to our absolutely beautiful 2 bedroom suite overlooking a large courtyard with table and chairs. When arriving back to hotel after a fabulous meal, we were greeted by Jay who served us banana fosters cheesecake and a decadent chocolate cake. Absolutely delicious. We were also given pralines to take to our room upon check in. The bar at the hotel was fabulous and has $3 martinis every day for happy hour. Great bartender named Chris. Breakfast served in the morning. This is such a nice hotel beautifully decorated. The customer service goes above and beyond any hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Definitely credit given to Jay!!! Thanks for a great stay. We will be returning to this hotel!!!

Just returned from spending 4 nights in New Orleans, Our room was comfortable and clean. The staff were very nice. The location is great, close to great music clubs. Good live music in the bar area. We would stay here again.

Everything is wonderful. The staff left a handwritten welcome card. The front desk service was amazing. The suite is beautiful. The bar makes amazing drinks, and the band playing is great. We plan on coming again soon.

It was just real hot and noisy and "overly-populous" on Frenchmen during the Jazz Fest weekend -- BUT -- the bar and lobby of the Royal Frenchmen Hotel were like oases for our thirsty travelers. Nice selection of liquid refreshments and a comfortable lobby, too. Nice "Dali-like" art all over.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a longer trip through the South. Beautiful hotel, boutique-style as noted in the other reviews. We walked in to check-in and were welcomes with the happy gathering chatter from the hotel bar. It was happy hour - $3 Martinis - so we indulged immediately after check-in. Atmosphere was bright and friendly and was a great way to begin our time in New Orleans. We found the staff - and namely Jay - to be very accommodating and friendly. We had been driving a long time, so the friendly faces and sounds were such a welcoming sight. Our 3rd floor room was not huge, but not cramped. It worked great for our needs. Modern bathroom and great shower (water) pressure and temperature. Bed was clean and comfortable. With all I had read about staying in New Orleans, I was expecting to hear music all night... especially with a bar in the hotel... however, our room was quiet and we slept great! I work as an artist and was immediately taken with all of the interesting and vibrant artwork throughout the hotel. Even the decor was stylish and fun. The onsite parking was a plus. We never used the car in the time we were there and it was great to park so close in the hotel lot. This hotel is a short walk from everything we wanted to do. We had purchased trolley passes to get us across town to other areas. Fantastic location. We ate breakfast around the corner at Horn's - excellent food. Highly recommend this hotel as a place to stay. We left with positive experiences and good memories. We will be back!

Just needed a bar for a drink on Frenchmen St. Most bars were typically dark and noisy. This one was bright and inviting. Only a few tables but very nice atmosphere. $3 martinis during happy hour. Live music too

This is a cute lil boutique hotel in what I think is the best spot in New Orleans. It's on Frenchmen St right next to a number of nice music bars and is a really short walk to all the other sites in the area. PERFECT LOCATION! The staff was the best part about this place. They made my first trip to NOLA such an amazing experience. Jay and Andrew were awesome in looking out for me and providing numerous suggestions and recommendations and the boys behind the bar were super nice too. AWESOME STAFF! This is the perfect hotel to feel like you are a part of a lil community and to simply hangout and meet so many cool people. There was even a night when the owner was in town, and bought me a couple of drinks! The music shows that they put on here are really good too. We had Glen David Andrews perform on one of the nights, which was beyond amazing!! GREAT VIBES! It feels like I've left a lil part of myself back on Frenchmen... Will be back some time to get it

The room was perfect for a couple on a short retreat. The bed was quite comfy. The bathroom was elegantly tiled, although a bit small. I loved the eccentric art - literally everywhere. The staff was friendly. We got the best dining recommendations from the talkative maintenance guy. And the bartender was, well, talented. The hotel was so close to several amazing jazz venues and a night art market. However, I would not recommend our particular room for business as it lacked a desk. I also don't think the hotel is the best choice for families with active children.

Royal Frenchman is good but could certainly use improvement. The good: rooms have been nicely refurbished and our queen room was good size; housekeeping - we never saw or heard them but our room was always spotless when we returned; bottled water and small coffe maker provided in room; cute courtyard; small bar with good happy hour and nightly music; close to Frenchman street music venues yet relatively quiet at night; Marigny Braisserie across the street with good food, drinks and music. Needs improvement: although the qeen room was good size there was only one chair which meant it was impossible for two people to sit in the room comfortably (also only one robe and slippers); the continental breakfast was pretty pitiful; staff never advised us if we came in after the front doors were locked we needed to enter with our card key via side gate; staff were frequently absent or nonexistent as on the morning we “checked out” at 7:30; no mini fridge in room; no snacks at bar.
