The location was absolutely fantastic, close to everything in the Quarter. The staff was very friendly and helpful, going above and beyond each interaction we had. The only minus I have is the size of the rooms; some are very small. Our first room was incredibly tiny for my husband and I, he is 6'3. However, the staff showed us...

As other reviewers have noted, the staff is very helpful and location great and charming in the Old European way. You must however know that not all rooms are created equal. We had the opportunity, due to a plumbing problem, to move to another room. The first had a separate sitting room with balcony and a tiny, inconvenient bathroom. And...

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the calm comfort, but still close to the action. The hotel brings together a number of old buildings around a tranquil courtyard. This means a maze of stairs and corridors, together with quirky rooms. Our room was small but light and airy. The bathroom was compact but with a decent shower. The...

Thank you for your review! As our 1827 Creole Townhome does offer smaller, more economical accommodations with limited storage space, we also offer a range of room types which provide more spacious accommodations. When booking your next visit, please feel free to contact the Hotel Royal directly so we may offer a room type that will make your stay more...

Everyone was as friendly as you can get! When we arrived the bellman gave us a map and wrote out at least a dozen restaurants. We tried nearly half - and boy was he right on the mark! The hotel is in an excellent location - walkable to whatever you want in the French Quarter. The only drawbacks would be...

Hotel Royal provided us with an excellent home away from home while visiting New Orleans. The location is the best part-close to everything but on a quiet intersection. The hotel is a bit cheaper than most in the French Quarter, so be prepared for a few drawbacks such as thin walls, little counter space in the bathroom, and a subpar...

We stayed in Hotel Royal for our honeymoon and room #11 was stunning. The hotel has kept many of its original features (staircases, wooden floors) which makes the hotel comfortable and modern yet charming and original. The reception staff and door men were excellent and very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel in New Orleans because it's a boutique...

Rebecca! We were so pleased to host the two of you during your Honeymoon. I agree completely, 11 is one of my favorites; with double vanity, oversized tub, and the wet bar is great feature.

We arrived to the Hotel Royal on a Saturday. I had sprained my ankle and was wearing a brace on my ankle/leg. We hadn't realized the hotel did not have an elevator, so we did not call ahead to ensure we have a first floor room. Our room was on the second floor and I did manage to make it...

The Hotel Royal's location is great: close to the action but outside of the craziness this hotel afforded easy accessibility to all the French Quarter had to offer while still permitting us a good nights rest.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
