I had booked a studio in the Bywater through AirBnb and upon arrival realized the air conditioner was not working. It was 90 degrees in the studio. Desperate for something comfortable I jumped on Trip Advisor and found the Omni Royal Crescent. It had good reviews, it was in my price range and it had a room available! THANK THE LORD! I had a rental car so I pulled up to the hotel, handed the valet my keys (the valet isn't always outside, you might have to go in and give your keys to the front desk) and checked into my room. The lobby is quite lovely and had a wonderful fresh fragrance! I was greeted by a very kind young man! My room was fantastic and most importantly it was nice and cool! The king size bed was SO comfy and the TV was excellent! My view was horrendous (ugly parking lot), but I honestly didn't care. It was just so nice not to be hot!!! The location of this hotel is great because it is an easy walking distance to the Quarter, but you aren't in the middle of everything if you want some peace and quiet. Just a short walk across Canal Blvd and you are in the heart of everything! The only complaint I have is about the valet! I think it was between $25 and $29 per night for valet! Pretty pricey! And on top of that, you have to give them PLENTY of time to bring your car around. I had to wait nearly a half hour one time. And then the second time I had them bring my car around, the valet guy had parked my car in a bad spot and there was a parking ticket on the car! So just be a bit aware of that! Otherwise, I was thoroughly pleased with my stay at the Omni and would definitely stay again!!
