I booked this in March of 2020. Then Covid hit. The owners were so great working with us as we pushed the dates out four or five times. We finally made it down the day after the bar reopened in May of 2021 and it was an amazing adventure. I highly recommend New Orleans and the Royal Street Inn and R Bar in particular. In a hotel above a bar I expected it to be very noisy. It was not. The party starts each evening at sunset and goes until about 2 AM. Then suddenly everyone just goes home. The level of sound is like the drone of a fan or white noise from a sleep machine. My neighbors in Dallas make more noise than the people in this bar/neighborhood! The big difference being this place is full of adults and my neighbors have teenagers. The weather was warm, the room was cold and clean. Very clean with the standard amenities of any hotel. TV, refrigerator, iron, hair dryer, coffee. We didn't use any of these except the coffee (damn good coffee), but they were available. The bed was comfortable. Towels were thick, plush, and big enough to wrap around my fat ass. We were in an upstairs room so we went through two locked doors to get into our room. I felt very secure in the hotel. Walking through the neighborhood and the quarter I never felt threatened or uncomfortable by anything or anyone. Everyone seemed to be happy, joyful, and glad to see you. The bar/hotel staff treated us like family. They gave us two complimentary drink tokens and were readily available. We checked out at noon and had a 7PM flight out. The bar staff watched over our bags while we spent a few more hours gaining weight. We spent the last few hours at the bar drinking and watching the locals come in (with their dogs). It's just a big family reunion that happens everyday. If I had to complain about something it would be that I only booked two days. I should have booked a week. Everything you might want to see is within walking distance. If you don't like to walk there is a bus stop at Decatur and Esplanade, about two blocks away, that will connect you to the rest of the city via bus or rail. But trust me you're going to need to walk off all the food you're gonna be eating.

If you want a non-touristy New Orleans stay, look no further. This is the loveliest little nook in the French Quarter. My husband and I stumbled upon the R Bar and have now stayed in 2 of the 5 suites -- it is fabulous in every way. Not only is the location PERFECT, but every inch is dripping in the je ne sais quoi of New Orleans. From the thoughtful staff to the jazz tunes in the rooms, from the personal espresso machines to the private balcony access... The inn's atmosphere is that charming blend of antique, classic Orleans and the warmth of southern hospitality. When the bar was open, it was everything you'd expect of the city where Bon Temps Rouler. Folks gathered from all over, the drinks were wonderful, and you would inevitably make a friend while visiting at any time of day or night. Although we miss the bar part of our stay, just the inn itself is reason enough to visit! (Special shoutout to Adam and Bailey who have done a wonderful job in showing hospitality even during COVID-19 times. They always take the best care of their guests, and I can't say enough great things about the Inn AND them personally.) So please, if you have the chance, make yourself at home here at the R Bar - you'll surely love it!

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.
