“Simply, the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Oh not the biggest rooms for sure, not the newest, not the oldest, but just the best. How to explain it? I'm checking in and this guy named Brandon comes by extends his hand and welcomes me by name. He was the parking valet who remembered me from a previous visit and I didn't even park in the garage. Haha - the staff is unreal, the pool and terrace on the roof is a killer (that's a compliment - the best pool and deck and bar combo in the city.) Just ask for a view of the quarter from your room (no lightwell please), ask for a room away from elevator and ice and one which does not connect - on a higher floor preferably! (All for noise control) - they won't promise but they try to please. And folks if you are into view, a little room on the 7th floor overlooks the copper cupola of the famed home proposed for Napolean (he never made it) and beyond a great view of the Mississippi River, boats and all. I THINK it is room 765.. But ask for the room on the 7th which overlooks Chartres Street - it is small and cozy and attic-like but a killer view both from the bedroom and the bath! If I could afford it I'd like to move into this hotel - I like it that much!

The hotel is nicely located in the French Quarter and the building and rooms hold a very good standard. My only complaint was that a plastic bottle of water in the room had a price tag of $7 dollars which seemed to be a ripoff.

Friendly and helpful staff.

Probably one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in down the years.Just a couple of nights was enough. I just couldn't love this place enough, perfect location for walking around the french quarter, and a short walk to the river boats. New Orleans is a truly amazing experience and what a place to base yourself. It even featured in an old Bond movie, can't remember which one but I would love to go back.

This is a great hotel, located in the middle of the New Orleans, French Quarter with a top notch staff and an immaculate facility. If you go once you will be ready to plan a return trip before you leave. The whole team make you feel like a family being welcomed home. From the moment of your arrival to departure they are going to help you feel safe, happy and ready to enjoy one of the great cities of the world. Everyone is well trained and anxious to assist in any way possible. You are in the middle of some of best places to eat in America and just blocks from wonderful music and a magnificent river front. Don't miss this place for business or pleasure it is sure to please beyond your expectations. Also you get a great view of the French Quarter and the Mississippi River front from the roof to pool, spa and bar area. A great place to relax and refresh.

From the moment we arrived until our departure, the service was outstanding. We walked to everything except when we took the street cars. While the room was a bit small, the outdoor patio for the rooms on the 2nd floor made up for it. We joined the loyalty program and received free internet. All in all, a great experience.

Wow! Thank you Omni Royal for upholding the highest level of service to your guests! After a very disappointing stay at the Omni Crescent, you totally delivered and reinstated our confidence in an Omni property. The rooms were amazing and the customer service was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Omni Royal over the Omni Crescent. Within walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. We can't wait to go back! Congratulations on a job well done!

I only stayed one night and it was a very quick stop over in New Orleans. The omni was a stunning hotel, with rooftop pool, good gym and location wise it was perfect.

However, $40 for 1 night parking....ridiculous. We also had our dog with us, great that the hotel was pet friendly but again $50 fee, not the worst by hotel standards but that's $90 just on 'extras'.


Still a top hotel, definitely recommend it - just be warned about the parking.
