... or burgers or randomly, cigars. For the half of the night that I was out, I experienced nightlife like nowhere else. Im sure the boys experienced more in those following hours, but we can only guess! The street was jam packed with live jazz, folk like 'Dan Dan The Shoeshine Man' and the odd religious preacher with a 10ft cross. Of course, they were widely ignored but accepted, as were those dancing in the street. Some clubs had ladies dancing on platforms outside, some ...

... see in the photo attached is exactly what was left in the bowl. Nothing good about that fare let me say. A whole lot of leftovers mixed into a gravy type of seafood broth thingy! New Orleans have many cemeteries all above ground in family crypts. Apparently the regular flooding from the Mississippi has a tendency to raise anything below ground to above ground. Some nasty surprises have been had! As a result of Hurricane Katrina we ...

Rolling on a river

... we got dropped off at the French Market and we did some walking around and shopping, had lunch, walked around town some more and went back to have a rest before our night time activity.

Tonight we are going on a paddle boat down the Mississippi River. David and Jane are joining the New Orleans 5 for Dinner aboard the boat and after wards it is up to the deck where we enjoyed the view. Of course there were Bloody Marys flowing but what impressed me most was the bread ...

Drinking Bourbon on Bourbon Street!

... kaluah mouse cake. It definitely made up for the weird duck!

When we finished our cake, we explored Bourbon Street. It had a lot more signs touting sex than I'd expected. It was a little like a dirtier, seedier Amsterdam. It was trash day, so stinky cans lined the streets, which I'm sure added to the filthiness of it all. We walked up and down the famous row, and stopped into a gift shop where I was able to get some ...

While we were walking around we heard someone comment that they would never bring their kids to New Orleans. We didn't let this offend us but thought how sad that their kids are going to miss out. We definitely would not bring them during Mardi ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Omni Royal Crescent New Orleans

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    I stayed in the Omni R C this past summer due to a design conference that I and my business partner attended. Though we were tempted to stay in the W or Hilton (because of friends) we opted out for a more affordable lodgings and found a deal at the Omni that was almost $80 less then the W and over $100 less then the Hilton. Wow, were we ever pleased! The service was great! The rooms were amazing (try to book a deluxe room if at all possible)! The atmosphere was unbeatable! We were closer to the French Quarter then anyone else, we had better service and after seeing the rooms at the Hilton and the W... everyone else wanted to come stay with us. Book a deluxe room through Omni's website and get ready to enjoy new Orleans.

    Wonderful place to stay

    from

    After search for the perfect place in NO for 16th wedding anniversary, this was it. Large, elegant room, jaccuzi, marble bath, mini bar, faux antique furnishings. Nightly turndown service, Quiet, clean, courteous staff. Bellman will park you for $22; but if you don't mind 2 block walk: $6 weekday, $10 weekend. Walking distance to everything.

    Excellent Staff..Intimate Hotel

    from

    Visited Hotel 7-20-2003 My boyfreind and I choose this hotel from the reviews. It was our first time in N.O and the staff gave us the kind of service you would expect from A Bed & Breakfast. They were extremely personable and friendly. We asked for an upgrade and was given a jacuzzi room with no problem. The room was clean and well furnished and the bathroom was Huge. Our rate was dirt cheap. The hotel was extremely quite if that's what your looking for. They only have a small dipping pool and a jacuzzi on the roof-top, but everytime we used it, we were always alone. It was quite romantic for a couple trying to do the "romance thing." A very nice hotel away from the nightlife. crowds.

    We Loved This Hotel!!

    from

    The Hotel was really quaint. The rooms were small, but we went to N.O.

    to experience the city, not stay in the room. The staff was courteous and friendly. The only concern we had during our 4 night stay was that they never changed the sheets. Even after asking for fresh sheets at the front desk, nothing was changed. This was disappointing, but for the price and location we thought it was a good deal. We'll stay there again!

    Horrible experience

    from

    I made plans to stay at the O.R.C 4 months in advance. When I arrived (after paying 15.00 to park 3 blocks away) they alerted me that the room I was suposed to stay in had a broken air conditioner and they would be moving me to "another" hotel all the way across town (17 blocks away). I originally chose the O.R.C. for it's location and now I was at the other end of town in a somewhat scary neighborhood. The hotel mananger did offer to pay for our taxi over there. Once in the taxi, the taxi driver alerted us that they do that all the time to people, so that they can get people to pay for the rooms at higher rates that night than the people that used expedia etc and got the room at a better rate. What a sorry system! I would NOT recommend this hotel!

    Good hotel

    from

    we had a little confusion finding the hotel, and my husband and i were hot and tired after 11 hours in the car,plus getting lost. I got in the hotel very frustrated and the staff could tell. they were very professional and helpful and friendly. the room was very clean which is not a given in new orleans. we really enjoyed our stay there.

    Cozy, clean, courteous staff

    from

    We reserved a standard room online & Front desk upgraded us to a suite! Nicely decorated rooms & beds were very comfortable. Great location (everything w/in walking distance). Rest. is no longer open except for continental breakfast. Valet service parks cars in "lots" somewhere nearby, had received several scratches on my car due to overcrowded lots & careless employees. Otherwise would stay here again!

    It was great!

    from

    We stayed there over New Years 2003 and it was great! It was close enough to all the action, but far enough away to keep it peaceful. Although when the crowds were gone and we were walking home really late at night it did get a bit scary. But it was still fun. The rooms at this hotel were way nicer and bigger than the one our friends had at the Omni Royal.

    Super great!

    from

    Just far enough away from it all to get some peace and quiet (if you want to sleep in NOLA, that is). Two blocks away from the Quarter and St. Charles Streetcar in a superb location. Also close to Harrah's, Aquarium and Riverwalk.

    The room was nice, clean and well kept. Comfortable bed and modern amenities at our disposal. Room size somewhat cosy, but not clausterphobic. The walls were a little thin, but the place seemed generally quiet, even on the weekend.

    Service was a little spotty, but they were always willing and friendly, even going so far as responding immediately to a lost bag crisis and shipping it back to me right away. The only minor drawback being the maid pounding on the door with the Do Not Disturb sign out. Otherwise, cheers to the Omni Royal Crescent.

    Great Service, Excellent Location

    from

    I hosted a meeting here Halloween week. We had 12 guest rooms, plus the meeting room.

    We had a terrific time, the rooms were great and the service was way above and beyond. Everyone who worked at the hotel was friendly, and all advice regarding where to eat, what to do and where to go was excellent. Some people thought the rooms and the bathrooms were a little small, but this is typical of hotels in New Orleans. The location just outside the French Quarter was great. Very close, yet much quieter than staying in the Quarter.

    I live in Houston but am from New Orleans, and was very impressed with everything. The hospitality was exactly what I would expect in New Orleans. I would gladly stay at this property again, and would have no problem recommending it to others.
