What a gem! The bright, bold colors welcome you into a large lobby with a coffee bar. The breakfast sandwiches were fresh and the mochas were the best we ever had! Centrally located to the French Quarter, Riverwalk, etc, the Royal St Charles offered walking distance to wonderful restaurants, bars and sighseeing without having the noise of a hotel in...

Rocky was so nice to me when I had a family emergency come up with my grandmother going into ICU. She worked with me to get everything figured out. I appreciate her so much to help me during this hard time.

This hotel was clean,cheap and a few blocks away from Bourbon street. It is probably a 8 minute walk or so. There is a Starbucks a block away. If you are looking to book Tours (ghost tour, Katrina tour, cementary tour) there is a store you can buy them in a block away as well.

I had a great 4-night stay here. The location was great, just a block walk to Canal and a couple blocks to Bourbon. Donna at the front desk was great, she was super friendly and gave me great recommendations for places to eat and see nearby. Two free beers on check-in and cake every day were great perks, too!

We booked this hotel through a Groupon. It was an amazing value! But we will return, even if there isn't a Groupon because the location was just right. A few blocks away from the craziness of Bourbon Street, but close enough to walk to any location in the French Quarter. Also, just a stone's throw from the St. Charles streetcar...

My husband and I stayed here and thought it was great. All of the staff of the hotel were very nice. It was also convenient to have a little coffee shop in the lobby.

I checked in without a problem the gentleman that checked me in was very professional. Both front desk and valet were amazing. The woman who worked the concierge night of my check in on the other hand was not accommodating. She steered me to tours/restaurants that were affiliated with one company rather than giving me a real concierge experience. Being...

Everything was great and the staff was extremely accommodating. It was a 21st birthday and the hotel put a bottle of champagne in the room along with gift cards to the PJ's downstairs (probably because they assumed we would be hung over haha). Overall great experience

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
