Stayed at the Omni Royal for 3 nights in late February and had a wonderful stay. Location of the property couldn't be much better- right in the middle of everything to be had in the French Quarter. Hotel is right on Royal St, one block from Bourbon, so you get the proximity without the noise and crowds. Service was always friendly and attentive and rooms are ample and clean.
Pool deck on the roof is nice and extra observation deck gives great views of the Quarter and the river.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies over St. Louis and Royal Sts.

Gorgeous hotel with great restaurant, the Rib Room. Nicely appointed with very comfortable beds. Beautiful rooftop garden and pool with observation deck. Friendly, welcoming staff made my stay extra good.

I love this chain, you can tell that many of the staff are long servers, it shows in the level of service you receive. The opposite of a modern, efficient, stark and sanatised city centre hotel, but comfortable, homely and relaxing. A great bar with a superb waiting team, a lovely room with a balcony for rmardi gras, and an open roof top pool, though the adjacent gym lacked a rowing machine. Lovely breakfast.

We had a beautiful, well-appointed room. The rooftop pool and lounging area was nice - with a great view. We didn't try the restaurant because we had a list of so many other places. Friendly service. My only problem was the check-in process. We were early, so they took our bags and our cell phone number to let us know when our room was ready. We went out to enjoy the quarter. They never called - even a half our after check-in time. When we came back to the desk we got the "...we were just about to call you..." routine. Annoying but they don't lose a star.

This hotel has some nice old New Orleans style and its location can't be beat. My room was a bit smaller than expected and, minor quibble, my morning newspaper never did arrive. But my room was very quiet--important in the French Quarter especially during Mardi Gras season--and the bed was comfortable. Don't miss the heated rooftop pool. Very nice! Staff was professional and helpful.

A great 2nd stay, after a wonderful experience in 2008. It's still the best hotel around. Close to everything, yet far enough from the noise to allow a good night's rest. Classic charm, and great service from hotel staff. Will gladly return!

Just back from a long weekend in NOLA. We were very happy with the Omni Royal; clean, great location and friendly service. The standard rooms are indeed very small, but, you don’t spend too much time in the room anyway. When a room became available we were upgraded to a larger room.
