“Always a Royal Treat”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Although the road was under construction, it's a great street for shopping. More than just antique shops- something for everyone. It's only one block off Bourbon, but seems a world away.

“Shopping anyone?”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

A few streets away from the chaos of Bourbon lies the treasure of the French Quarter filled with arts and antiquities. Great place to stroll for quality souvenirs instead of the low quality stuff you find everywhere else. Beautiful authentic art, collectibles and rare finds. Pick a tour book and do a walking tour with all the historical architecture. Don't forget the artists all around Jackson Square. Look for Ashton Jefferson and his amazing Jazz inspired pieces!

“Better Shopping”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This street had the kind of shopping I like. It wasn't as touristy as Decatur or as tacky as Bourbon. There were plentiful galleries, restaurants and interesting shops.

“One block and a world away from Bourbon Street”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Royal Street runs parallel and one block south of Bourbon Street. Through the mid and west ends of the French Quarter it is mostly art and high-end furniture shops. There are a couple of notable restaurants. It is much quieter than Bourbon Street, and worth a stroll, especially is you have money enough to afford some of the luxuries viewable in the shop windows.

“Antiques galore!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We stayed at a hotel on Royal street and found it to be at the heart of the French Quarter, near Canal Street and one block from the infamous Bourbon Street. There are antique shops in every block with something for the discerning eye just waiting to be carried home. Enjoy!
