“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Just returned from New Orleans...3 night stay at Hotel Royal. The location,one block from Bourbon and walking distance to the market, Decatur St. and numerour bars and restaurants makes it ideal. The room was great with a comfy bed, large bathroon and very clean. Cute little centre courtyard with tables and fountain to sit outside and enjoy breakfast. The breakfast was ok...cereals, partries, fruit(oranges and apples), yogurt and granola as well as tea and coffee. All staff were very friendly and helpul. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room if possible...many stairs up to higher level rooms.

My husband and I were booked to stay at this hotel for the beginning of our honeymoon. We were a day late coming into New Orleans after having a cancelled flight out of DC. Tired and grumpy we arrived to an incredibly warm and helpful staff. Family had called to upgrade our room for a night at the end of our stay, but we were given the upgraded room for our entire 3-night stay, with a balcony and a bottle of champagne. The hotel is in a great location, and is very clean and quiet with a charming courtyard and modern rooms. On our last day it rained, and the front desk gave us an umbrella when he saw us leaving without one after breakfast. They also offered annotated maps of great restaurants and local favourite spots in the area. I can't say enough good things about this place. We'll definitely be back.

Great experience here! The hotel itself is beautiful and historical looking. The rooms were modern, clean and chic. Marble bathrooms, hardwood floors... The staff are fantastic - especially Eric and Ariana who were so helpful. Not an unfriendly person in the place! Our friends got the Royal Suite which was spacious and elegant with the large outdoor patio - sadly they only had one left so we took a regular? room since we could all just go wherever - but that suite was AMAZING and we definitely made use of the patio for some pre evening drinks and socializing! Our room was of normal size and spaciousness. The only issue, our air conditioner did not work. They sent someone immediately but it would not start. They did find an alternate room right away and even came with room keys and to move our bags within 10 minutes without us even asking, but we chose to just keep what we had as otherwise it was quiet and perfect. That decision was not the greatest as we did get hot, but somehow in the middle of the night when I got up to see if maybe by some lucky chance the air conditioner would start working ... it actually did! Very good location to everything you want to see! We will be coming back to New Orleans, and when we do we will be staying here once again!

Room Tip: The Royal suite with the large wrap around patio!!

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 NOLA!

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 serced in the tiny reception area.

Overall very good value

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 slightly quieter location and a quick walk to the hip Fauborg-Marigny neighborhood and great music. Service was impeccable - helpful, personable - and they even upgraded our room since it was a special occasion. And what a room - stylishly minimal, modern, extremely comfortable bed, and a balcony with a great view of the action. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Room Tip: Well worth it to get a balcony room.

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.
