This place is doing it right! Hotel Royal is a chic boutique hotel combined with the elegance and history found in New Orleans. The rooms are very small due to the age of the building which to me added character. There are a lot of stairs and no elevator and many French doors which again, to me, added to the... More

Arrived on 12.26.14. We were aware that the hotel did not have designed parking and we would have to park on the street. Luckily we arrived early to the Quarter and found parking across from the hotel. We had planned to the Christmas lights at the park but after spending the day and early evening in the Quarter we noticed... More

By far the best place I have stayed in the quarter-terrific staff. They went far beyond to accommodate. A real jewel! Great location and all descriptions were accurate-just be sure you read and know that all space is limited in the quarter. Comfortable experience.

But, the rooms are sooooo small. We stayed over NYE, for four nights. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We were able to walk to everything in the French Quarter and Jackson Square. There was coffee and pastry every morning, but it is self service. Our room was clean and little noise. The room was just too small, no dressers... More

We expected small rooms but this was too small. I expected a hot shower but no just warm water. No vending machines, you have two walk to blocks if you need something to drink. They do give you two baby bottles of water, how nice.... This must be the welcoming gift it mentioned on their website! Parking close isn't likely... More

My daughter had never seen New Orleans and this was perfect. Te room was small but the bed was comfortable and it was right in the heart of the French quarter. Bonus cherry on top was to hear the courtyard was used as a set for "The Originals". How did we get son lucky? The price was quite reasonable and... More

We picked this hotel due to the authentic french quarters architecture and the entrance and courtyard do provide that. However the room was below expectations for the price charged. Although clean enough it was a very small, which is not of any importance to us normally, but coupled with the fact that there was no window in the room it... More

When I arrived at the Hotel Royal it was well before the check in time. Staff was great and allowed me to upgrade my room from a deluxe to deluxe with a balcony. The cost was minimal and a great choice with the weather being in the high 70's and low 80's. I was also able to get parking secured... More

The perfect old fashioned atmosphere : old ( but good condition) , quiet location ( but not far from any kind of action) excellent service, and the rigth price. This hotel is located in a very chic area. I can't wait to go back.
