We stayed at the Storyville room. We booked the Marigny room downstairs but were upgraded to the 2nd story room. It had recently been remodeled and it was gorgeous. The bed so comfortable. We loved walking in to music coming from the Amazon fire tablet and awesome speaker. The staff was very nice. It's just one block from all the goings on in the French Quarter. The manager was extremely accommodating. My only suggestion would be to offer fresher coffee grounds and a choice of sweeteners. We look forward to a return visit.

I've been visiting New Orleans for about 25 years now, it is a place I hold near and dear. Over that time, I've stayed in many, many hotel rooms. I've seen the fancy and I've seen the frightful. And I've certainly come to appreciate that in New Orleans, sometimes the little gems are not necessarily going to be the shiniest. The Royal Street B&B is just about perfect... at least perfect for me. The bar staff were super helpful when we checked in. At first I was a little bit confused because we had reserved the smaller room on the ground floor, but were taken up to the larger suite on the third floor. It turns out that they had vacancy, so they upgraded us. Very nice touch. Although I had originally wanted to stay on the ground floor, the bar noise was pretty intense so the third floor was perfect. It wasn't so loud that we couldn't sleep (we didn't use the complementary ear plugs), but I imagine that the ground floor would be a bit challenging. The room was very clean and extremely cozy. It felt less like a hotel and more like hanging out at home. The bathroom was enormous, with a big walk-in shower. There's a great sound system which just makes it all feel that much more unique. And the bed was easily the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. I also adore the fact that the housekeeping staff doesn't come until between 12pm and 3pm... no one should feel guilty about sleeping late in Nola! Anyway, the bar is awesome, the frozen pineapple Mojitos were insanely delicious, the location is ideal (on the edge of the French Quarter, but close enough to walk to the Marigny), and I plan to make this my Hotel of Choice from here on out. The only two things that I didn't love were the scary stairs up to the third floor (not the worst I've seen, however) and forgetting that our ceilings were sloped and banging my head repeatedly. But neither of those things would keep me from giving this place five stars. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The bar is loud... if you think you are going to have issues, stay on the third floor.

I had 24 hours to see New Orleans for the first time ever before I had to go to work at the convention center. Through various social media connections, a NOLA local told me this is where she wants to staycation in her own town, so I took her advice. Let’s just start with -lithe obvi the rooms are above a very popular bar, so you just have to allow for the noise. However the AC and TV helped drown most of it out! This place is gorgeous. My small room had gotten trashed by the previous nights tenants, so I was upgraded to the huge suite at no additional charge. I immediately sent videos to family and friends to show off the beautiful architectural details - truly a New Orleans experience. It was absolutely huge and I longed to be there with a group of friends for more than one night. Full kitchen, gorgeous master bath and large balcony overlooking the lively street. Walking distance to bourbon street but not so close that you feel surrounded by tourists. Very much a local spot. Adam was so helpful... the upgrade, holding by bag in the office downstairs while I took a tour, and even collecting a necklace I left in the room and keeping it safe until I returned to pick it up. Bartenders were friendly and full of advice on what to drink and eat and directions. Drink tokens are a fantastic touch. I definitely plan to come back... this place has the makings for a fantastic girls trip!

If you want a superior night's sleep and to wake up staring at the most beautiful room ever, book yourself in to the Royal Suite! All of the rooms at this place are beautiful, but the big one, The Royal Suite, is just incredible. It doesn't get more "New Orleans" than this. I love the Frenchmen/Marigny neighborhood. Like the Quarter minus the smell of urine and all the touristy crap. I love this R Bar. Great vibe, great juke box, wonderful local atmosphere. And I can't say enough good things about the Royal Suite itself. Enough room for two couples but why share this place when you can just have it all to yourself. The huge balcony overlooks Royal and all it's colorful sights and sounds. It is noisy at night because you're in a live music area in a popular neighborhood, but pop in the provided ear plugs and you'll be fine. I'm going to have a hard time ever staying anywhere else in New Orleans!
