Historical Traveler Reviews The Omni Royal Crescent New Orleans
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
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
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!!
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!
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!
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
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!
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.
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
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.

... at our good fraternity friend, Sean McGoey’s, residence on the outskirts of the good ole city of New Orleans. Pulling into the driveway was a real feat of accomplishment and as we stepped out of the car we were refreshed by the warm and refreshing Louisiana air. Not the sort of refreshing that you think of by a nice breeze on the beach but rather that after you take a nice long steamy shower because from the second I got out of the car I was ...

It was about a 20 minute ride to the Garden District and then the tour took almost 2 hours covering 17 homes and places of significance. After all that walking in the heat and humidity it was time for a bite and a beer. Nate Polly owns a coffee roastery and had found ...

I know having internet access shouldn’t matter much, but once it’s not there you really notice it! So it was nice to reconnect with the online world for a bit before going on to the Park.
As we walked into the area we were talking about what the boys might be doing, concluding that we ...

Even though we love the assistance of a sympathetic staff member at check in, this time we were instructed to use the kiosk instead, just like all the other flying public. We settled for a breakfast of fried potatoes, bacon and eggs since the healthy fruit option didn't seem to be available that day.
Fortunately there were no problems with getting on the flight. The Delta crew were wonderful to meet and were even kind enough to give ...

We saw the 801 year McDonough Oak tree in City Park, which also had the best coffee and beignets (light donuts with lots of powered icing sugar) in the entire city - hands down. This tour was important because the real information we received about New Orleans way back when, that connected up to ...
