When we arrived on Tuesday we basically walked in without a reservation since the Laquinta around the corner royally screwed up our reservation. We were greeted and checked in by Jeff, who was absolutely AWESOME and totally set the tone for what we thought would be a 5 star stay. 1. The room is a little pricey considering there is...

Benjamin B, General Manager at Royal St Charles Hotel, responded to this review

Dear TheTruthAtOnce - We apologize that the room was not to your satisfaction including the fact that the thermostat and default temperature were not initially communicated correctly by our nighttime security personnel nor with the right service delivery. Our thermostats default to typical comfortable setting when no one is occupying the room in an effort to save energy (and they...

The location of this hotel was the biggest value. The rooms were kind of small and the cleaning staff wasn't very accommodating or courteous. The check in desk was somewhat rude at times depending on what time of day you went to the desk.

Dear greg2nyse - I apologize that your service experiences with the front desk and housekeeping were not consistently up to par. I will be discussing this matter with the team so that they can learn from the perception that you were left with.

Greater parking for Valet service; When returning to hotel had problems parking to get out; more parking space would help; most hotel allows guests to at least get out safely; that is all I have to say

My stay here was an extension of a business trip. The location of the hotel is very convenient to the French Quarter yet it is outside the hustle and bustle.

I was just here for a short business trip. Room was not sound proofed well. I could hear a loud repetitive mechanical noise all day and night and it prevented me from sleeping. I could also hear the people in the room next door coughing and conversations plain as day. "Hotel parking" is just staff telling you to go to...

Dear B2044GLLM - We apologize for the experience not being a pleasurable one. The valet parking is the most convenient option requiring no walking to or from your car. Our self-park option is a contracted agreement with the closest garage available a couple of blocks away. The service that you have described is something we take seriously. I will follow...

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.
