Really good location, right on the trolley. 2 blks from the French Quarter. Easy check in, although there was a value added tax to our room of $9.95 and park was a little high at $32 per night. I would stay there again.

I recently stayed at Royal St. Charles from 07/03-07/07 and I enjoyed every minute of my experience. The front desk staff was always pleasant and greeted me each day upon arrival and departure. My room (#409) was perfect. It was a comfortable size, clean and had a view that overlooked Gravier street. The location was great and the price per... More

Just returned from New Orleans and the Royal St Charles. The hotel was very busy over the Fourth of July weekend and after a long drive we arrived tired and ready to check in. The front desk was very helpful in getting us in a room timely. They gave us the option of checking in immediately to an inside room... More

Very easy to get around from this location. Be prepared for some hidden costs that are not included in your original booking of your room. It is a resort fee that is $9.95 per day and gives you access to the gym, Wi Fi etc. We stayed on the 5th floor. The streetcar rail is right in front of the... More

For a great value in a prime location, you must visit the Royal St. Charles. Close to the French Quarter, it makes an excellent home base for a stay in NOLA. Rooms are snug, but modern and clean. But what makes this hotel special is the responsiveness and friendliness of the staff. I've stayed all over the world and always... More

We've stayed at some wonderful hotels on our trips to New Orleans (Hotel Monteleone, Prince Conti etc). I would prefer those hotels over the Royal St Charles if price is no object. But the Royal St Charles is a very good option as well. The streetcar is right outside. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Amanda at the front... More

Was in New Orleans for business meetings and trying to find reasonably priced decent hotel in D/T is not always easy. Hotel is well located on St. Charles 1/2 block from French Quarter. Rooms are small but clean and have decent amenities. Not elegant but good place to stay fair price.

My friends and I spent two days and a night here for a fun, short trip. This hotel is very close to the French Quarter, easy walk! The rooms are very cute and boutique-like. They are on the small side but that is not a bad thing. The room and bathroom were clean and that is the main thing. You... More

This hotel is in a great location. We were able to easily walk to Bourbon St,, the aquarium, Pharmacy Museum, Harrahs, and to the Streetcars to get to everything else. The room was very small, but was clean and quiet. There was also no window in the room, but a fake glass square with curtains made to look like a... More

I agree that the room was small but the location is near the heart of the action in the city. The A/C was tricky in that getting it just right was difficult. The staff seemed very nice. The valet parking is the way to go. Nice easy breakfast spot downstairs. This is an example of getting what you need but... More
