Overview

In past lives, the Omni Royal Orleans hotel went by the monniker of The City Exchange, St. Louis Hotel or St. Louis Exchange. It crumbled and/or burned down many times, but it has always been brought back by those in New Orleans that are concerned with preserving the history and culture of the French Quarter.

The Omni Royal Orleans has witnessed much in America's history since the 1830s. It played a part in the slave trade, housed wounded soldiers during the Civil War, during Reconstruction became the seat of Louisiana's "Carpetbagger Legislature", and eventually declined as the spirit of the neighborhood around it. Finally, it's historical importance realized, the 346-room hotel was resurrected in 1960 and remains an important cornerstone in the French Quarter. The reconstruction was overseen by the Vieux Carre Commission which oversees all historic preservations efforts in the French Quarter. It was built to replicate the exact design of the St. Louis hotel with its famed arches, Spanish wrought iron railings down to the precise height and dimensions which outlined the Paris "Mansard Roof" look.

To this day, the Omni Royal Orleans sits in one of the most fashionable corners of the city and has become a favorite of celebrities and local social elite. Within these very walls, specifically, of the Pipkin Room inside the Rib Room restaurant, the idea for the Superdome and the Louisiana Jazz and Heritage Festival were developed.

This "European grand" hotel holds its place in the present day, inviting all to unlock its history, all while gracing its guests with superb hospitality.,/p>
