“Lovely rooms and decor but our room was VERY small”
Reviewed 5 March 2011

We had read the rooms were small so we expected it. The decor was very elegant .. the beds were very comfy and the location was excellent. We had to put our bag on top the armoir and we bumped each other alot getting ready because it was a small room. I was good with it though ... the price was right and the hotel was beautiful.
The roof top area is worth seeing. The view is lovely but we didn't try the pool. I hear they give you a complimentary bottle of water or some free drink ... we didn't ask about it and didn't recieve it ...soooo you might want to. But we really enjoyed our stay ... we knew we were going to be running around alot and not in the room much but when we crashed there at night ...the bed was VERY comfie and the room was lovely ..
my only disappointment is they change for wi fi ... but nothing huge.

In the middel of every thing right in the French Quarter can not get any better loaction
Got a offer from Hotwire.com which was the value part
had a late arraviel and got the last room at the hotel it was tiny , but with a view of the garden so not that bad placed
Toilet floaded in the middel of night , DH got to dry up every thing we felt sort of emberassed about this, but we had to call in the early morning to get it fixed they fixed it straith away , but we where sort of worried that it would happen again.
Friends of us that checked in the day after us talked with the hotel personal and got another room for us :-)
This room was so much bigger and with a view of the street
Rib room for breakfast buffet very good value and so nice people working there.
Had some drinks in the bar one evening aswell
It was clean , location was very good , service was good even if the took them some days to sort out that we where on the selected guests program of theirs
oh and its a very nice roof swimming pool there was up there a couple of times , but didn´t swim , reason why I didn´t rate the sleep Quality that high is that I probably is a light sleeper and woke up several times in the night , even when I got the express check out note under the door I woke up .
Rooms - the furitures is very big there so the rooms seems smaller then they really are , but a very good first stay at this hotel

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Omni Royal Orleans for the first weekend of Mardi Gras and loved this hotel. It is a 1 or 2 min. walk to Bourbon Street which is far enough away to be able to sleep but close enough that you can get right into the action with no delay.

Stayed on the 5th floor in a regular room. Two full beds and a basic layout but for New Orleans the room size was generous and the bathroom was comfortable as well. The water pressure was monsoon-like which was pleasantly unexpected in the French Quarter given the age of the plumbing. Traveled with some other friends who had the Magilny Suite (Room 516) and that room was monster-sized with a great corner view of the Quarter.

The rooftop pool was unexpected and with such beautiful weather it was a great place to get some sun. They have a pool bar which was convenient and a great observation deck that you can see for miles from in any direction. Though I didn't swim there were plenty of guests who were in the water and said the temperature was perfect.

There are some steep steps to enter from the street to get to the lobby but the bellman do a great job of hustling bags up and down to make it easy on their guests. The doormen were great and were a wealth of information to us. We scored a reservation at the Court of Two Sisters Jazz Brunch because of them.

We tried the Rib Room restaurant inside the hotel and the food and service were both perfect. Loved the steaks and the seafood was great. Bar was a little conservative on the drink strength but other than that it was a very good meal.

There is a small convenience-type store in the lobby serving Starbucks coffee (Starbucks are not allowed in the French Quarter. Community Coffee (local choice) is everywhere and similar in quality) so that was great for the early morning caffeine fix. There was no coffee maker in the room.

We ate beignets at Cafe Du Monde one morning and other than a long wait they were worth it. Their chicory coffee is a bit of an acquired taste I am sure (tastes like black licorice to me) but it was fun to try something new.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to everyone.

This hotel is located in a great area of the French Quarter and is within walking distance of all the sites and restaurants that you would want to visit. The hotel itself offers valet parking (but takes a while to do when you arrive amid the check out rush). Guest parking is located next to the building in a garage and valet will bring your car up for you as well. The rooms are well kept but our room (single queen bed) was a bit small. The bathroom was also small and difficult to maneuver in as well. While we did not have a view of the french quarter (we were on the third floor) the views from the top floor are nice and again we were able to walk to all the places we wanted to eat and see before our trip ended.

The Omni Royal is a grand hotel in a convenient location in the French Quarter. We stay here time and again due to the clean rooms and attentive staff. The Rib Room offers an excellent breakfast and friendly staff.

We really liked the location. You are in the heart of the Quarter, but away from all the hub-bub - a block and a half from Bourbon Street. We stayed in a deluxe queen, which was fine enough because you only need to the room to sleep and shower. So much to do in this city you will rarely be in your room. The bathroom needed some minor grout work, but it may just be that our room was due for a touch-up - nothing that was too concerning. The door man was so friendly and seemed to really love his job. We arrived too early for check-in, so they held our bags and called us when it was ready. The folks at the check-in desk were super friendly. I would recommend this hotel for those that want to experience New Orleans but not be right on Bourbon Street, yet still close to all the action. I would stay again.

We booked a room at the Omni Royal Orleans for the Rock N Roll Mardi Gras Marathon & 1/2 on Valentine's Weekend. We expected the hotel to be well located but had no idea just how good it would be! Convenient to everything which was a real bonus. We had seen the pictures of the hotel online and were not disappointed when we arrrived-hotel is beautiful and very comfortable, especially the beds! The room and bath were not overly large, but who goes to NOLA to stay in the room?! Plus, the desk clerk had given us a friendly heads-up about this at check-in so there was no surprise. Each time we had questions of the hotel staff, they were extremely helpful and steered us in the right direction. Love me some Southern hospitality! Also, be sure to check out the hotel bar, Touche. Will definitely put the Omni Royal Orleans at the top of our list for future trips to the Big Easy!
