The only issue was that the fees at check in were higher than expected. I was previously informed by a staff member that i would only need a $50 deposit at check in but instead had to pay over $60 and also had to pay cash up front for the valet service since i didn't have a credit card. Luckily...

Staying at the royal st Charles was so enjoyable. The staff were friendly. The coffee shop PJs was great. They even provided cake for the guests during the day time, complimentary! Also, being a female comedian traveling alone, the most important thing is that I feel safe and comfortable. Everyone working there made me feel safe and taken care of....

We recently spent 2 days at the centrally located Royal St. James Hotel while visiting in New Orleans. This wonderful hotel is located just one block off Canal St. in downtown New Orleans. A short walk across Canal St. is the French Quarter with all its historic and lively attractions. We hopped on the Canal St. trolley to visit the...

We stayed here for an extended weekend for a wedding in the French Quarter. Very conveniently located and easy to walk to every where you need to go in the Quarter. Rooms are very small but clean and all you need for sleeping and showering.

Located a block from Bourbon Street, right on the historic St. Charles trolley route, this hotel was value added. A great place as homebase, a quick walk to the Bourbon Street allure and Jackson Square. It was a great find!

The valet broke my moms breathing machine by dropping it in the street. He did not report I did and they did not offer the funds to repair it. The part is only 50 dollars. The machine is still leaking

Great hotel, great location except for 2 things. The coffee shop in the lobby had issues keeping things stocked: no decaf coffee one day and no medium cups another day forcing you to buy a small or large size. The valet told us they would charge us the self park weight not the valet rate but when we went to...

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.
