Stayed at the Royal Crescent recently while attending a conference in New Orleans. The conference hotels were the Marriott and Sheraton both on Canal Street. Looking at a map, the hotel was two blocks from them and so convenient enough. Rate was AMAZING...Travelzoo had a special $69 rate and this was easily ½ and more than the conference hotels. Imagine my amazement when I got to New Orleans that the hotel is literally behind the Sheraton and blocks in New Orleans, unlike Chicago where I live are small! On top of that it is a 5 minute walk to the French Quarter and 15 minutes (at most) to the convention center.
I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. It is a hidden gem in New Orleans and from my research, Omni as well as the hotel run a variety of specials which make it a fantastic bargain for a 4 star hotel. Staff were extremely friendly, and if you are a member of their frequent guest program you get free internet ($9.95) a day, which isn't bad as compared to some other chains, and we also got 2 complimentary beverages per person each morning that you would mark and leave on your door the night before by 2am. Many times, I neglected to do this by 2am and the beverages were still there the next morning! You are also given green (clean the room) and red (do not disturb) beads that you hang on your door to indicate what you want done. Even when we didn't put the green beads up, we'd ALWAYS come back to a clean made up room with new towels, etc.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone attending a conference or just vacationing in New Orleans, it is in the CBD and is convienent to everything from the Street Car lines, Convention Center and French Quarter. They have a small bar off the lobby which has a two for one happy hour, and a gourmet burger restaurant off of that. We did not have the opportunity to eat at the restaurant, but did enjoy the bar. The night there we met the manager and had a great conversation with him and the bartender was fantastic and friendly too.
