This hotel was beyond perfect! The staff was beyond friendly and helpful, the rooms were beautiful and clean and the location couldn't of been any better, you could walk to almost anything or take a $20 cab ride to anything not close enough to walk too. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good time is... More

The Royal is situated one block away from bustling Bourbon, and 3 mins walk from Jackson Square. You're close to the action without being kept awake by street noises. Rooms are of varying sizes, but all modern, with a/c, ceiling fan and flat screen TV. En suites are fairly fresh. Staff is smiling, helpful and non-intrusive. A small breakfast is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Royal for his birthday recently. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The hotel is located in the perfect section of the French Quarter - just a few blocks from Jackson Square, the French Market, and the party on Bourbon Street, but with the added bonus of being in a...

I booked the room last minute for one night. The staff is great! If you are looking for a great New Orleans feel this is the place. Great location! Parking was full but we were able to leave our car out front only because we got in late and were leaving early.

This was a great hotel, all staff was very helpful. Wyatt and Donald were excellent in customer service gave us excellent dining choices and other helpful hints. The room on the other hand is very small not enough room for anyone let alone a family of three. I would recommend this hotel. One block from Bourbon St.

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights. The associates were very friendly and everything was fresh and clean. I just can't stress how small the lowest priced rooms are. Literally, there is the bed and about 1 foot on each side to walk. The TV sits on a built in table/mini closet. We had to put our large bag... More

Donald and associates went above and beyond to make us comfortable- incredibly impressed and will stay here again in a heart beat. AC went out in our room so they gave us an automatic upgrade, no questions asked. Highly recommend this hotel.

Had a room here for 1 night. So close to bourbon street with a safe walk. Nice staff, very helpful. Beautiful old building. Our deluxe room was up on the top floor, there was about 3 inches of space under the door because the floor was tilted. The door also didn't lock from the inside. There was a crawl space... More

My husband and I stayed her June 20-22. A whole weekend in the city! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in one if the balcony suites on the 3rd floor. It was perfect! It took me a little while to get the jacuzzi tub working. I would have to press the button a few times before it really started... More

Charming Historic Hotel on antique shop lined Royal street and just two blocks off Jackson Square. This was our third stay here in as many years and once again the staff made the stay special. Helped with locating and suggesting truly local New Orleans spots. Highly recommend!
