This is a great hotel with a inexpensive rate in the middle of New Orleans and everything you want to do. And a good coffee shop on the main floor. The rooms are very clean and nice look at the hotel the streetcar is right out your door and the best to see is very close by. There are some very inexpensive eateries very close by. And, the quarters one block away. I'll be back.

Room Tip: there are some very special rooms at this hotel. Also travel to New Orleans in the spring or fall an...

No reservations. Showed up at the hotel at 9 pm. Staff was very helpful and charged what was quoted when we checked in. Didn't like $16/day parking charge. Parking garage was 4 blocks away. Arrived in our room and was pleasantly surprised. Very clean. Most comfortable beds/pillows of any hotel we have stayed at. Would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to New Orleans. First time to LA. Walking distance to Bourbon street. Felt very safe with our teenagers. Only complaint was the trolley car stops right in front of the hotel. Great if you want to get around on it but noisy in the morning.

Room Tip: Got the handicap room. Bigger bathroom but no shelf to put makeup bag on.

As a first time traveler to the N.O. I loved the close proximity of the hotel to everything. I wasn't a fan of the parking but I lucked up on a spot. The room was small but doable as I didn't spend much time there. The staff was very hospitable when I arrived. The room was very neat and clean. I didn't like the lack of sunlight. But the hotel was very quaint and for the price of 60.00 I couldn't beat the location. When I visit again I will keep this place in mind.

Room Tip: The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms. It really is good for a quiet couple getaway.

I booked this hotel as an express Deal on Priceline, it was only $55 and was rated as a 3 star. Upon check-in, there was a mandatory $9.95 fee additional to what I had already paid Priceline. The lobby looks pretty god and has a coffee shop with baked goods, that is the only breakfast option at this hotel. While checking in I noticed scantilly clad girls checking in and the thought crossed my mind that they might just be hookers, a thought that was confirmed in the elevator later that night. The two young "ladies" seemed surprised when I declined their offer. This place just oozes cheesiness.

Room Tip: Some inside rooms have no windows

If you are traveling to New Orleans, then a unique opportunity awaits you at the Royal St. Charles Hotel at 135 St. Charles ave. NOLA. This hotel is quite quaint and full of luxury. I stayed in a "King-Balcony" room and absolutely loved it. The place was clean and inviting, the room was relaxing. The Streetcar line is right outside the front door, and the concierge was also available to secure a taxi for us. This is not your average hotel------it's sooooo much more. It's truly as hospitable as New Orleans itself. Do yourself a favor, plan your next stay at the Royal St. Charles. Close to French Quarter, Downtown museum and shops.

The trip was awesome and the weather couldn't have been better. New Orleans is an amazing city full of very lively and colorful people who know how to enjoy life. The hotel was a beautiful little boutique hotel and was located on St. Charles and Common St. It is seriously only one block from Bourbon Street in case you have a little too much grenades, hurricanes, and fish bowls (so about a 2-5 minute walk to the beginning of Bourbon Street). The hotel staff were very helpful and although check-in is late and the rooms are somewhat small the hotel is a great deal and I would highly recommend. Other expenses make up for the cheapness of the hotel like the 10/night fee for internet, phone, and a in-room safe no matter if you use it or not they charge you. On top on that there was suppose to be free long distance that was a lie! Also, don't get me started about parking but that's not really the hotel's fault the city is just small and busy with lots of things going on driving is impossible and parking is ridiculous in pricing, location, and quality. The best deal is to self park for $16-$22/night which adds up very fast is you nervous about parking in tight spaces with crazy narrow 2-ways valet parking was $32/night. Valet by the way is very friendly I did not receive their services but one of the guys (which was attractive may I add) took my bags to the car anyways! I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something affordable and close to the French Quarter but still far enough that all the Bourbon Street noises cant disturb you (although there are lots of drunk people that also book this hotel so they might disturb you if your a light sleeper). I never had a problem with the cleaning services my room was cleaned everyday and the staff greeted my whenever I met up with them. There is a coffee place by the lobby never got coffee there but it smelt so delicious and I'm not even a coffee drinker!

I loved this hotel! We stayed here for the last Saints game of the 2012 season, and it was very convenient. We valet'ed our car (I can't remember how much it cost) and didn't have to take it out until after the game. We were able to walk anywhere we needed to go. We walked to bourbon, the casino, Cafe Du Monde, the Superdome, etc. The room that we stayed in was quite small but perfect for 2 people. I loved the modern interior! I do not have one complaint about this hotel and will be staying here in the future.
