Great Hotel BUT... – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Awesome Anniversary – My husband and I visited NOLA to celebrate our first wedding anniversary this past weekend.
Upon our late arrival, we were greeted by the Valet and Bell Boy and quickly checked in for our stay. There was a mix up with the room key which stalled our 'settling' for 30 minutes, but we were told that the woman that assigned us the keys was on medication from a dental operation.
The room was lush but small - neither of us minded, since we would be tourist hopping and eating all day anyway. The view was great, and we were pleased that it was located far enough from Bourbon that you couldn't hear the crazy screaming drunkenness (though, Saturday was a bit louder than Friday).
Room service was excellent and speedy. Information was readily available and the hotel was really clean. We didn't get to explore the upper deck pool area or dine at the Rib Room, but plan on staying here again - it's in the middle of everything and a really great value!
GREAT HOTEL! – ME AND MY BOYFRIEND STAYED AT THE OMNI FOR ESSENCE FESTIVAL THIS YEAR AND OUR STAY AT THE OMNI WAS GREAT! THE BED WAS COMFORTABLE, THE LOCATION WAS EXCELLENT!!! A VERY SHORT WALK TO BOURBON. THE STAFF WAS CATERING. WE ENJOYED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT...IT SPOILED ME FOR ANY OTHER HOTEL IN NOLA.
One of the city's grandest hotels on a busy, unassuming street corner. – The Scene
This hotel was built in 1960 on the original site of one of the city's most famous 19th-century hotels. The St. Louis was the center of Creole social life circa 1850. A white stucco exterior and lacy iron balconies give the building the image of age, as do the chandeliers, gilt mirrors and tons of marble. Overall, though, this place has a 21st-century feel.
The paintings in the lobby, hallways and rooms are original, done mostly by local artists. On the seven floors there are 346 rooms, 15 suites, a penthouse, four restaurants, including the notable Rib Room, and a luxurious rooftop pool. The look of the guest rooms is traditional, with clean, contemporary lines and colors. Some are quite small. Multiple meeting rooms and a business center accommodate corporate gatherings and conferences.
Gasp ! – Great hotel, well worth the money. This is what a vacation hotel should be like. Don't be discouraged by the price. Horrible hotels in New Orleans can run the same price. There is dining, parking, food and drink. You'll have a great stay here.
Great Pool and Views! – This hotel was Amazing! Though it's not as hip as the W Hotel, The location is amazing - right across the street from K-Pauls and Nola's - two great restaurants. Also, the pool is probably the best of any hotel pool and you really have to have the pool when it's around 90 degrees in the spring and summer. I highly recommend this hotel!
The Place "see and be seen" – This is the hot spot, we knew we'd found it. The Rib Room Bar at the hotel was hopping, the staff so friendly, and we were lucky to get a room! When we realized we were accross the street from Paul Prudhomme's restaurant, and only a couple blocks from the business district, I asked my partner why we had never asked the local office where they would reccomend before this! We were so glad they told us about the Royal O, it was like they were keeping a secret!
Great – I stayed in a deluxe queen room for 8 nights. Although the room was small, the deco and the view all made me satisfied. Every morning I woke up, I could see the top of St. Louis Cathedral. How wonderful! It was in a quiet neighborhood in French Quarter and close enough to many spots. The service was great and the staff was friendly. Most of all, complimentary wireless internet was very friendly for travelers.
Huge disappointment! – It was the worst service I've ever had. Check in took about a half hour, we asked 3 times to have the bottled water refilled in the mini bar, the maid didn't even put the empty wine bottle in the trash or dump the water in the ice bucket, we had to ask twice for robes and call once for toilet paper. My traveling partner was embarrassed after bragging about how great the Omni was.
Convenient to everything. – The hotel is very nice. The rooms were clean. Ours was quite small with only one queen bed, but they do have larger ones. The lobby is a great place to sit and read or people watch. The staff were very polite. It is in the heart of the French Quarter, near to everything, but far enough away from Bourbon to be quiet. It is directly across from the police station that has been under construction for most of my life. Don't worry, I have never actually seen any work going on, so there will be no noise. The door staff were always very friendly and helpful.
