I'm a NOLA local and had a weekend staycation in the quarter. The location of the Hotel Royal in a lovely location in the heart of the quarter. It's on Royal and can be quieter than other locations. We had room 11 which is a 3rd floor balcony room. It's very spacious. The balcony is beautiful and a really nice place to sit relax and really enjoy NOLA for what it is. The hotel employees were also very police and friendly. Rooms have safes which I always look for. All white brick with dark hardwood floors make the room feel like a modern loft or condo vs a hotel room.
The bad of this room? It was not very clean. The hard wood floors were very dirty. I walked around in barefeet after a shower and the bottoms of my feet were black. The furniture is very stained and dirty. Especially the bench at the end of the bed. So full of stains I did not even want to lay my clothes or suitcase on it. Also, it was a $200 a night room with taxes and there were no amenities. No shampoo, no hand soap and only a very tiny garbage can in the bathroom. When we arrived at 4pm the room was not ready. I suspect house keeing rushed through it or just did not finish cleaning.
It's also not a hotel for anyone older of with bad knees. It's a 3rd floor walk up and the jacuzzi tub is very hard to step in and out of.
It is charming but think of it as a bare boned boutique hotel.
