This location was fantastic. Close walking distance without the noise. The room was spacious and comfortable. (Note: we were upgraded to a suite due to a mishap with our reservation*). Everything we needed was provided. *Warning: Call to verify your reservation, especially if you arrive late. Our ...
The staff was friendly. The rooms was clean and comfortable. It is an older hotel with some of the charm (courtyard, fixtures, etc) that you don't find in the newer hotels. Great location, close to the action, but set back enough to be quiet and relaxing.
Great staff from the front desk to the room attendants. Just a couple of minor suggestions:a suitcase rack in the room would be nice, a shelf in the bathroom for incidentals (the sink was large, but storage space was limited), and a step/seat/bench in the shower. Other than that, no complaints. ...
Clean, comfortable facility near Bourbon St, which unfortunately brings 24 hour noise...people yelling at each other, cars doing burnouts, sirens, and our room even had a courtyard out back which served as a nice location for arguments between other guests at 3 am. Hotel facilities were otherwise ...
They've tried their best to keep the Omni Royal Crescent up to date with nice touches like new door knobs and comfortable mattresses, but the building is somewhat ragged and the staff just aren't very good. We had to switch rooms because our first room was damp and smelled musty. the second room ...
We arrived earlier than expected and our room was yet ready however, the nice young lady from Coldwater, Ohio who checked us in offered us a different room that ended up larger and much nicer than our original - thank you so much!
The historic port city of New Orleans rests on the Mississippi River. The city offers a multicultural blend of European, African and Caribbean influences. Every year, visitors flock to the city to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of The Big Easy. From historic sites to unique festivals, the city offers attractions for families, couples and lone travelers.
Located in the historic French Quarter, the lengthy street is famous for its nightlife, but there are attractions for all ages and interests. Many of the city's famous restaurants, historic landmarks and souvenir shops are located on Bourbon Street.
Named after Andrew Jackson, the victor of the Battle of New Orleans, the beautiful public space offers a spectacular view of the Mississippi River. Jackson Square is also surrounded by local treasures, including the St. Louis Cathedral, museums, restaurants and markets. The square also serves as a creative space for artists, so visitors can obtain a one-of-a-kind painting from one of the many local painters.
The Audubon Zoo is a uniquely beautiful wildlife experience in the heart of the New Orleans Garden District. The zoo features local exhibits and animals from around the world. The zoo also boasts a real swamp, a baby animal nursery, aquatic exhibits, a safari trail and more.
At another site, the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium offers the largest insect museum in the country. The butterfly garden alone contains thousands of the lovely winged insects.
The French Quarter is the city's oldest neighborhood. Residents and visitors alike are drawn to the neighborhood's convenient location, rich history and unique attractions. From luxurious mansions to charming boutiques, French Quarter hotels combine modern amenities and beautifully preserved architecture. The neighborhood contains the most popular hotels, restaurants and attractions in New Orleans.
Bordering the French Quarter, this neighborhood contains the Convention Center, the Superdome and multiple business centers. Hotels in the Central Business District tend to be less expensive than hotels in the French Quarter, but French Quarter attractions are still within walking distance. Additionally, the Central Business District hosts several unique restaurants, shops and attractions.
The Garden District offers a quieter New Orleans experience. The streets are lined with local shops, historic structures and gorgeous trees. You can reach the main attractions of the French District by streetcar, but the Garden District's local treasures and relaxed atmosphere are just as enticing. Like hotels in the Central Business District, Garden District accommodations tend to be less expensive than French Quarter hotels.
The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) serves the city of New Orleans. Located in the suburb of Kenner, the airport is 11 miles from the downtown area. A shuttle offers transportation services from the airport to the Business District. New Orleans hotels in the area include the Hilton New Orleans Airport and the Doubletree New Orleans Airport.
The New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal connects New Orleans to New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. The facility serves Amtrak and the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority. Greyhound buses also utilize the terminal.
Most visitors will flock to New Orleans between February and May to participate in Mardi Gras and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Both celebrations can be very exciting, but the city is typically crowded with visitors during that time. During this exciting time of year, some of the best hotels, restaurants and attractions have already been booked months in advance. Fortunately, the city hosts a full calendar of events. If you avoid the crowded city during Mardi Gras season, you can still enjoy authentic New Orleans cuisine, heritage tours, music festivals and more.
If you're not accustomed to soaring temperatures and high humidity, the summer months can be unpleasantly stifling. Warm temperatures persist during the early fall months. However, if you can handle the heat, visiting New Orleans in the summer and fall can help you save money on accommodations. The winter and spring months are fairly mild, so the city is a very popular destination during the early months of the year.
This hotel was our base for a 9-day visit to New Orleans. Located at the border of the French Quarter, and on a tram line, it afforded convenient access, but in a safe, quiet location, as a reasonable rate. We stayed in a suite consisting of a bedroom, full bath, living room, and small kitchen, comfortably furnished and adequately equipped for our short stay.
Nice facility and excellent room. Near Loyola and Tulane University.
WE stay at the hotel for a family trip, facilities are ok but service was deficient, took long time for staff to clean room, we asked to change towels and had to go twice to front desk
Before we even entered the lobby we spent a pleasant 20 minutes chatting with the valet, he gave us a lay of the land, where to go and where to avoid. The check in was easy and we were informed that our room was upgraded to one with a private balcony . The room was large and clean but the French doors that opened to the balcony were the icing on the cake. We also received a voucher for a complimentary drink in the bar. All in all a very pleasant stay.
