Omni Royal Orleans vs. Place d"arms

For my last two nights I am trying to decide between Omni Royal Orleans (small room) and a balcony room at Place d'arms. I will be solo for this portion so want somewhere safe to walk alone at night if I get a late dinner or hear some music. I would love to lounge by the pool (will it be warn enough early April?), and somewhere with a bar that I would feel comfortable by myself just hanging out for a bit.

The omni would be about 30$ more a night.

What would you choose?

Thanks so much!

While I LOVE the Royal Orleans, I'd probably go with the balcony room at Place d'Armes for this one. The small rooms at the Omni are quite small and, even though it's a four-star hotel, I think you're getting more bang for your buck at PDA.

I would stay at Royal Orleans. It's a very classy hotel with a great rooftop pool that has a nice view. It's very highly rated. And the location is perfect. PDA is fine but I still think of Royal Orleans as being one of the finest hotels in the city. Go to NOLA for fine dining too.

I'd choose the balcony room for this time although the royal orleans is quite a place but the balcony room and 30 cheaper cuts the deal....but then we love the PDA.

I'd go for the balcony room. I LOVE having the balcony to sit on and watch the world go by!

another vote for the balcony room! Also, PDA is right at Jackson Square, so the location is ideal if you want to pop next door to Muriels, or walk 12 more steps to Stanley's, Cafe du Monde is in view from the front door, Jackson Sqaure is right outside for a sit or stroll thru the park. PDA wins this one!
