“Almost a 5”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Great location in The French Quarter. We got a great price taking advantage of their Best Price Guarantee. The room was VERY small, but we knew that as we chose the smallest room they offer. Even knowing that, there was no dresser or any place to put you clothes, so they stayed in the suitcase on the floor for 4 days. We hung up as much as we could but still a dresser of some sort would have been welcomed.

We were on second floor and we had french doors that opened on to a private patio area that we were told no one but guests who rooms opened onto it had access to it. I guess in nice weather it would have been nicer. There was a constant noise {HVAC??}out there and it was also audible in room.

If you join their loyalty club, you get coffee and juice delivered to your door each morning, a nice touch.

Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Nice roof top pool, bar and patio.

One last thing - there is an odd smell in the lobby; very noticeable when you enter. It isn't a bad smell - it smells like dryer sheets or something.

All in all, a good hotel and the flaws wouldn't keep us from staying there again.

Staying at the Omni Royal Orleans was the best decision we could have made for staying in the French Quarter without a car. The whole experience in the hotel was second to none, I do however suggest you to get a balcony room to absorb even more of that NOLA feeling. We brought our 2 small dogs and they were treated like royalty as well.....We will be back!

My Husband and I stayed here for business and pleasure. Everything was perfect along with the location to the main attractions in New Orleans. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone wanting to visit New Orleans. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The Rewards Program is excellent. We will be returning to this Hotel whenever we visit New Orleans again.

You want a hotel that has it all in the quarter? The omni is simply amazing. From the moment we arrived till we left, everything was perfect. Manard at the front counter was such an amazing person , so friendly and welcoming. We have been there to Nola many times but he suggested to try a few new things and spent time explaining how to get there and what to do. Frenchman street was awesome Manard. Thank you thank you thank you.the rooms and the hotel itself are worth every penny and then some . Thank you again omni staff. We will be back for sure........

The Omni was great for us. although the rooms may be a bit smaller than some are used to, they are clean and well appointed and you can't beat the location. The roof top pool offers a great view of the river and the French Quarter. Burbon St is moments away and getting to the Bywater or Frenchman St are walkable or a cheap cab that is always available right out the door. You can even walk over to Cafe Du Monde 24 hours a day! WE definately plan to stay here our next visit to NOLA.

After 30 years, there is still no other Hotel in New Orleans that ranks close for location, value and the experience. I know I sound like an employee, but after several mistakes for numerous reasons, this is my favorite hotel not only in New Orleans but probably in all my travels. The only reason I would not stay there is if no rooms were available and I could not change my travel dates.

We spent a week at the Omni Royal in a petite room, and can't recommend it enough. We were initially worried about the size of the petite room because we couldn't find too many pictures of it labelled online, but it turned out to be great - neither cramped nor overly spacious, but a comfortable bed, clean well-fitted bathroom, spacious closet, with room for a desk, chair & ottoman, and dresser & flat screen TV. Two of us easily got about without getting in each other's way. You can't beat the location of the hotel. Perfect for the shops and attractions of the French Quarter. We also walked to the Garden District, CBD, and Marigny easily and got taxis to the Arena, Harrah's and farther afield. We had a 5th floor room on St. Louis St. and had no issues with noise from Bourbon Street, even over Bayou Classic weekend. The external and bathroom doors are a bit thin, so you can hear your neighbors and people in the halls, but signs are posted for quiet in the hallways - still...we may have pestered our neighbors during our romantic holiday. Absolutely sign-up for Select Guest in advance. Better rooms, free drinks and papers in the mornings & free shoe shines (still there are coffee makers in-room). Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and while still showing-off a bit of their individual personalities. Can't recommend this hotel enough - incredibly happy we chose the Omni Royal over other comparably priced options in the CBD - and will be on the lookout for other Omni hotels in the future.
