Fodor's Review

One of the more elegant options on Bourbon Street, this large white-marble landmark is a replica of the grand 1800s St. Louis Hotel, with columns, gilt mirrors, and magnificent chandeliers. You get a central location along with traditional elegance. All rooms have marble baths; some have balconies. The lobby-level Rib Room is a classic see-and-be-seen restaurant. The rooftop pool has one of the city's best views of the French Quarter.

Omni Royal Orleans Hotel Review

We stayed at the Omni over the New Year's weekend and although we enjoyed the location of the hotel, once again we were witness to another hotel scraping every little bit of plastic out of our wallets. Now I'm certainly not opposed to spending a good amount for a luxury hotel but I've always found my money to return more benefits from a boutique hotel or bed and breakfast. This Omni is just another example of a chain taking advantage of a "Nickel

and Diming" technique common in American hotels. I suppose it wouldn't have been so obvious if we hadn't just spent the night at a low-end Econo-Lodge the night before in Memphis. The list of services for each kept spinning around in my head. So let's compare... One night in Memphis, good size room, four blocks from Beale St, great view of the city: $80 Two nights at the Omni, smaller room, view of wall from window well: $612 Parking at hotel in Memphis: Free Parking at Omni for two days: $76 Breakfast at hotel in Memphis: Free Two bagels and coffee at Omni: $18 Internet at hotel in Memphis: Free Internet for two days in at Omni: $24 So I assume these extra charges are luxury versions of what I may have received in Memphis. Really? Tasted like the same bagels. Does the internet cost more in New Orleans? Maybe it costs more to park in New Orleans? Not really. There's a parking garage right next to the hotel that charges only $25/day. So why does the Omni feel it should charge it's guests so much more for the same service. All I'm saying is you can avoid drinking the $8 bottle of water the Omni provides in the room. But, when you stay here, keep your credit card handy.

Constant, reliable and thoroughly enjoyable

I use the Royal Orleans as my regular home when in New Orleans. The atmosphere is invariably satisfying and comforting; the service never intrusive, always thoughtful and attentive. Even in the dark days immediately after Katrina when large numbers of staff, who had no other home, were billeted there, I have never been disappointed by 'La Grande Dame'.

lovely place, well located

beautiful chandeliers, great service, close to the police station (always a good thing in NO), nice views from terrace and pool area. smaller and more intimate and historical than most others.
