Lovely street central to EVERYTHING. Walking up and down the street you'll find what you're looking for. Shops, food, drinks, art. It's all here.

With Bourbon Street just one block over, we found ourselves traveling Royal back and forth across town. Royal has nice shops and less traffic, definitely an area worth visiting.

Many art galleries are located on this street. Part of the street is blocked off for cars and you can just stand in the middle of the street and listen to amazing street performers.

We walked this street during early Mardi Gras season and enjoyed the decorations on the balconies and looking in the shop windows. Not being a shopper we cannot comment on the interior of the buildings

This is a very historical Street. I believe it’s one of the original streets I recall one of the tour guilds saying. I stay on this very same street when I’m in New Orleans at the St Royal Charles Hotel, a short walk to Bourbon...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
