I love this property! The location is perfect and the rooms are beyond my expectations every time I visit. I have been in 3 different rooms so far and have not been disappointed yet! Management and security have always been courteous and polite. Housekeeping goes beyond expectations. The balcony room is perfect for parade routes, the porch is great when... More

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend who travels frequently to NOLA. She said it was a unique hotel not to be missed. The hotel was absolutely perfect for a traveler like me, however it is not going to be for everyone. There is a helpful manager onsite, but there is no central desk or office to speak... More

Quiet, small rear room in a good location. Appropriate for one person. Independent traveler would be a good match as there are no frills or easy access to service. When I did speak with the manager, she was very friendly and helpful.

Rear room smelt damp and unused. Bedding felt damp. No sense of any care or interest in the property by the owners. Needs updating and bringing up to an acceptable standard. The concierge was helpful when needed. The location is good but in all other respects I cannot recommend this hotel.

Leave your expectations behind when you visit the 905. There is no doorman. There is no concierge to speak of. Hell--there is no "pampering" at all! If that is what you expect (or want), take a cab down the street to the corporate digs at the other end of Royal. But if you want some historic funk, and to plan... More

The location is perfect! However we stayed for five nights in one of the suites. It was not worth the money .The bed linens were threadbare, mattress badly stained wall paper was peeling off and it had a strange damp smell.

This small hotel is in the ideal location. Royal street is relatively quiet , but close enough to Bourbon St. , Jackson Square, and all the standard tourist attractions . The rooms are tastefully decorated and the staff is generally friendly. Housekeeping comes too early and is relatively persistent about cleaning the rooms in the morning. Sitting on the front...

It's a nice hotel if you like the French Quarter style and antiques, if not is better to find other option, the only problem is that you have to check in before midnight because there is not 24 hrs reception service, an our flight was late, so we were very stressed. Very, very well located walking distance to Jackson Square,... More

At least once a year, for the last 13 years, we stay at 905 Royal. It has the feel of Old New Orleans, vintage furniture, comfortable and clean. We have stayed in almost every room in the hotel, and they are all great! The owners are wonderful, the staff is very pleasant, the rooms are neat & clean. We love... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
