Stayed for the weekend & this is our new favorite spot. You're a couple of blocks away from Frenchman or Bourbon plus the French Market is a short walk. The bar staff is very friendly with an easy check in/out process. Horn's around the corner is a great place for breakfast/brunch or dinner. The only downfall about the Royal Street... More

This is a really nice New Orleans bar in a traditional French Quarter building. It is away from the “douche bags” on Bourbon Street and towards the nicer area around Frenchmen Street. A great jukebox, friendly bar staff and Abita beers, with plenty of interesting characters hanging out in the outside smoking area (the street).

My buddy and I have been staying in the Mississippi Suite for about 4 days now - the moment we arrived I knew this place was something special. Great rooms, cheap drinks and friendly locals. Treat them with respect and you'll make a new friend or two.

We ate here (did not stay here tho) with 7 family members and they were very accomodating seating us all. The food was very good and the atmosphere was busy, but fun! The waiters were also very attentive and we had great service.

We stayed in the La Sirena suite in the loft space of the R Bar. It is open plan, a gorgeously furnished space with a super comfortable bed. You do have to climb the 3 sets of stairs but that is part of the adventure. Some people may be put off by the shower/bathroom area being part of the open... More

This is by far my favorite place to stay when I visit New Orleans. I'm 38/female and this place is safe. I felt perfectly comfortable staying here by myself the first night. I stayed in the Storyville Suite upstairs. It's at the far end of the house, opposite the bar. I never heard a thing from the bar while inside... More

We stayed in the royal suite - it was huge, more of an apartment than a suite. If it had a cooker you could live there. It had a separate bedroom with a gorgeous bed and a spacious bathroom with two wash basins. The living area had sofas and chairs, a dining table, a huge bed, music system, full size... More

Two things: The most comfortable bed in the world and the most UNcomfortable couch bed in the world. The hotel was actually lovely. Loved the hardwood floors, decor and the bathroom was really nice with a stand up tiled shower and incredible shower head. Room service left you ear plugs, in case the bar downstairs got too loud and lovely... More

This isn't just my favorite bar in NOLA; it's probably my favorite in the whole world. Having said that, I don't understand what more a person could possibly ask for in a bar. When I'm in New Orleans, I spend a lot of time drinking here, and if there is a room available upstairs, I stay here. The location is... More

We stayed in Storyville for two nights at the start of our honeymoon. The journey from London had been pretty awful and the airline had lost my husband's bag (delivered at around 2am) but what a treat to sink into this comfy bed for a little while before nipping downstairs for a couple of beers and a chat to the...
