Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Royal

1006 Royal St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70116, USA See on Map

Cameron Todd

A good mix of modern and boutique within an 1830s historic New Orleans Home, this small hotel offers pleasantly large rooms with high ceilings. The friendly staff are happy to give recommendations for the best of the surrounding French Quarter.

room

Spacious rooms are a mix of modern amenities and period pieces. Select rooms have balconies overlooking Royal Street.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Make sure to request a ground floor room if you have trouble with stairs.

bathroom

All rooms have spacious marble bathrooms, and four rooms have large garden tubs.

lobby

The lobby has a seating area and nice natural light from large windows facing the street; guests also enjoy an enclosed stone courtyard with fountain.

dining

Guests enjoy coffee all day, and a simple continental breakfast (fruit and pastries).

drinking

The courtyard, with plenty of wrought-iron bistro tables, is a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.

LOCATION

Getting Around

It's best to travel the French Quarter on foot or by pedicab. The hotel offers limited parking to guests.

Restaurants

Hit the greasy spoon Clover Grill (2-minute walk) for a satisfying diner breakfast, day or night. Angeline (2-minute walk) serves some of the best modern takes on French and Creole classics for dinner, and brunch on the weekends.

Bars

Head to Muriel's Jackson Square (4-minute walk) or Cafe Amelie (1-minute walk) for a romantic drink served by some of the best bartenders in the city.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Nestled right into the Quarter, it has all the charm of an old B&B, but with chic decor and modern comforts.
