Royal Street seems to always be packed, but everyone is in a good mood and there is variety in the stores and galleries, not to mention the great street bands, particularly Tuba Skinny - they are fabulous.

I love Royal Street, and really recommend finding a hotel on this street. Its lively enough, but not to crazy where you cant get a good nights sleep.

I spent more time on this street than I did on Bourbon. Tons of art galleries and antique stores. A lot of street musicians also seem to hang out on this street. You will definitely enjoy your time strolling around there.

We stayed at the Cornstalk Hotel which is located on Royal Street. We walked up and down Royal Street during our stay. It was flu of character and had heaps to offer. There were a variety of shops (antique, food, clothing) and it was a short walk to Bourbon Street. Royal Street is a great place to spend some time.

What a surprise to discover this street of elegance in contrast to the kitchy street one block away. Reminded us of streets in Paris.

Some of the better restaurants in town are found on Royal. Many street musicians do a great job of entertainment, caution on the scam artists. Very nice and safe area of the quarter.

Walking down this street we saw many art galleries. In one of them , Antieau Gallery there was an opening to the public with music, food and drinks and the manager came out to invite us. We felt very welcomed and had great fun!

Royal Street was our absolute favorite. We loved all the musicians and artists. Don't forget to take cash so that you may tip the musicians.
