Royal St Charles Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2014

The location for this hotel was great because it was within walking distance of Bourbon St., but you could escape the craziness easily. There were also a few local dive bars in the area, which was a big bonus. They have a charge for parking, but you can find cheaper parking in the neighborhood.

The lobby looks very modern with loud colors, and reception is very friendly and helpful. The rooms were kind of on the small side, but we didn't spend much time there anyway, so it wasn't a problem.

Went through Groupon to book a room and was not expecting much. I was quite delighted that this hotel and the staff were superb. Everyone from the front desk to the valet, just awsome service!! The room was clean and served its purpose. Walking distance to everything, including The Ruby Slipper Cafe for breakfast. For those who are used to a "comfortable" size room you might feel a little cramped in the queen bed room. It was just right for me and spouse, but we didn't spend much time at the hotel. Just enough for a hot shower and sleep, the rest of the time we were out and about.
If I can recommend, I would tell the hotel to maybe changing their bathroom door to the ones that slide so it wont be so cramped when getting in and out of the restroom. Othet than that, I will be back at The Royal St. Charles. Superb staff and convenient location!! Oh be aware their walls are paper thin, you can hear people throughout the night when passing by your door. I'm sure this wont be an issue when your dead tired from all the activities!! Oh and yes the St.Charles streetcar stops right out front of the hotel, cvs is around the corner too. Because of their awsome service I almost forgot I wasnt at a 5 star uppity hotel place. The staff are real and cordial. Just Awsome!!

Location: The hotel is very well located just one block from the main artery, Canal St where the French Quarter begins. Most attractions are within walking distance and if you want to go a little farther like the Museum of Art you can catch a tram on Canal St. However, that one block makes a difference in terms of noise and amount of people around the hotel so it's very comfortable.
Room: the room is very comfortable with a good bed, desk, large tv, safe, hair dryer and plenty of toiletries in the bathroom. Only problem inside the hotel is that the air filter in the bathroom produces a lot of cold air and it can get very chilly. There's also no mini fridge or mini bar if you want to store a yogurt or something.
Another issue is that the check in is really, really late like 4:00 pm and check out at 11:00, I don't find this reasonable.
Overall I recommend this hotel, clean and excellent location.

Love staying at boutique hotels and this one was fantastic and met our expectations. From the time we booked our stay with Da'Shana who was of great assistance in getting us in the perfect room we requested to the day we left. The entire staff is courteous, friendly and so professional. The room we had, had a balcony and we were warned about the trolley noise. We didn't hear a thing! This hotel is in a perfect location, far enough away from the crazy but walking distance to everything. The beds are so comfy and the rooms impeccable. Our first time in New Orleans but definitely not our last and we will definitely stay at The Royal St. Charles again.

Loved it!!!!! Great 8 year wedding anniversary spent at The Royal St Charles!!!!

Room Tip: Our room was a suite with a balcony, but I would think all their rooms would be great!

Stayed here for my sons bachelor party (over from UK) and it was absolutely perfect. Easy walk to Bourbon Street, French Quarter etc but not right in the midst of the popular tourist spots so it was quite quiet. Nice clean rooms, helpful staff and a great concierge. Breakfast area was a bit unexciting but we discovered Daisy Dukes Express just round the corner which was brilliant!

Stayed there with deal from American Express for a girls weekend with college friends. The rooms are small but very clean. There was enough space for 4 women to have their clothing and bathroom stuff, but it was a tight squeeze. It's cleanliness and proximity are the reason I've given it high marks. Didn't get 5 stars though because without the deal I don't think it's a great value and the walls are paper thin. A family was staying next to us and we could hear their baby and young children screaming in the morning, which is unpleasant after a night out on Bourbon street. Also, the cleaning staff were vacuuming outside our room one morning at 9 am and wouldn't stop when we said we were still sleeping. If you can't get a deal, you're probably better off at a different place that costs the same but might be nicer.

What a great location and hotel staff. We really enjoyed our stay during Jazz Fest. The location, price and cleaniness of hotel couldn't be beat. Room was small, but expected in the city. Had everything we needed.
