Hotel Royal is at the perfect location for a great stay in New Orleans! Everything was extremely clean and well kept. Complimentary breakfast is offered and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. In addition there is a very quaint and cute courtyard area right outside your room. Wonderful stay and I will definitely be back!

You have been warned, spend your money elsewhere. I was in room R 17 on the second floor. I was told it was my fault the a/c froze up because I set it cooler than 72 degrees. There is NO FURNITURE except for a bed and an ironing board that I am using for a dresser. NO VIEW because my... More

Took forever to check in as the person was super chatty with each group. Eye-rolling levels of chatty. After that it was fine. We got lucky with parking nearby, and our very affordable room was in the attic, tiny, and had modern decor and amenities. The exterior was original French Quarter cool. Modest breakfast pastries and coffee. Smack in the... More

We have just arrived at the hotel and were told we would be in room 19 at the top of 4 flights of stairs, no problem, were pretty young and fit. What we weren't told was that the room was a tiny little hot box with a slanted ceiling and air con that does nothing. Honestly the room is has... More

This place is perfect. The staff is off the chart. The rooms are nice and cozy and well kept. The proximity to the quarter is perfect. You can walk to everywhere or catch the streetcar. What a great value. You will be hard pressed to find a better place for the price and I'll guarantee you you will find a... More

My husband decided to book this hotel for 3 nights, primarily due to the location. I wish we would have chosen a different hotel from the beginning. I read through the reviews and most people complained about the lack of elevators and about the overall size of the rooms. The room was tiny and up several sets of stairs, but... More

Unfortunately, I've opted to book via the hotel's own homepage. I never received an email with the confirmation of my booking. So I called and was assured my booking would be valid. Upon arrival the staff at the reception realized that I had booked twice for the same night and brought this to my attention but could not do anything... More

Dear Juliane S, Thank you for the feed back. I have to admit that I am a little confused because Hotel Royal does not have a separate concierge or a coffee chain within the hotel. We are a historical small boutique hotel with one front desk agent that also acts as concierge. We offer a continental breakfast, coffee and tea... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
