“Excellent stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for New Years 2012/2013 and could not have made a better choice. We found a great deal on getaroom.com (directed there by kayak) and paid an average $60-80 less than the going rate. The location was great as it was close enough to walk to all the attractions but far enough from all the noise. The hotel itself is very modern and clean with a coffee shop downstairs and super friendly staff from the front desk to the valet attendants (especially the Kenyan dude, I think his name was Wasilla). The rooms are quite small but who cares as you will not be in your room that much with all the stuff there is to do in NOLA. The concierge Federico was also very helpful in suggesting tours and attractions.

This hotel was great for us as we were only there for the weekend. The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The concierge was extremely helpful in telling us where to see the most in our short time there.

I'm wrapping up a 4-night stay this evening and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience here. I have been especially impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the front desk staff. I also like the fact that the location is just outside the French Quarter, which makes that venue accessible without being in the middle of the action. By the way, I enjoyed an evening at the Desire restaurant at the corner of Bourbon Street and Bienville Street and stronly recommend it for Royal St. Charles Hotel guests.

Room Tip: I enjoyed Room 202 which has a wraparound porch above the entrance to the hotel. I'd recommend...

I've stayed in New Orleans a lot, and you can get a room actually IN the quarter for cheaper and nicer than here. That being said, the room was fine... small, but clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower had great water pressure. The front desk staff seemed like they'd rather be ANYWHERE than at work, but the valet guys were very very nice. My boyfriend's car was hit by another car while waiting to check in, and the valet actually chased the other car to get his tag number!

My stay at this just out of the quarter gem was an all around soothing experience. From the check in to check out the staff could not have been better. Darlene had great insight on things to do and places not to miss. Being from NYC I found this very refreshing. thanks again guys Great hotel experience.

Kudos to the management and staff of the Royal St. Charles Hotel. So this is what Southern Hospitality is all about!! Thanks to the Front Desk staff and Ms. Lori for their suggestions and personal attention. We have found our home away from home. Looking forward to our next visit.

The hotel staff was helpful when we needed a cab or information about the facilities. The coffee shop in the lobby was very convenient especially with the chilly morning air and the pounding headache from the previous evening's activities. With the hotel being a block off of Canal Street, Bourbon Street was within a short distance and shops, restaurants, and entertainment were close by. The room is small, but it is considered boutique-style now that the renovations are complete. The bathroom was very stylish, the room had a flat-screen TV, and the beds sufficed. The only issue for us was the pillows and that the room was smaller than advertised on a hotel website. Five of us piled into the tiny room, but we worked it out. When we were only using the room to shower, dress, and sleep, it served its purpose nicely.

Room Tip: If you want luxury and size, this hotel is not for you.
