My wife and I stayed two nights - my first trip to New Orleans, one of a few for her. The Hotel Royal has a rustic, classic hotel feel. We stayed in two rooms while there - both were very clean. The first night - we arrived far before check-in time, which is normally 4pm. We were going to just leave our luggage and stroll the streets for a few hours, but they were able to check us in early. We paid for a "deluxe" room and I think, because of the early arrival, we may have ended up in a standard. That room was small, but quaint. Unfortunately, it must have been under an air conditioning unit and there was a constant, loud hum. In addition, the room was on a bit of a slant and one side of the bed made it feel as if you were rolling toward the other. So, we politely asked the next day if we could switch rooms. The staff was very pleasant and accomodated the request right away. The new room was far larger and very nice. It was next to a stairway, but the noise was minimal and didn't bother us at all. The bathrooms in both rooms were a bit cramped but nice - adorned with marble sinks and very clean. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful - possibly the best aspect of our stay there. We needed an extra towel and something like 2 minutes later - they were at the door. Eric was particularly helpful - ready with directions, luggage assistance - very knowledgeable. Everyone on staff is great. The location is very convenient to everything in the Quarter. Community Coffee is across the street - like Starbucks with better tasting coffee! Which was nice. I would recommend this hotel to others and I would be happy to stay again!
