The Omni Royal Orleans is a proud part of history on its legendary site. From the 1830’s onward, this single block of the French Quarter has witnessed all that was and is New Orleans. From creole hedonisa to the austerity of the civil war, reconstruction, a sad decline to the rebirth in the modern world. This grand hotel location has gone by names of the City Exchange, The St. Louis, and The Royal and today its legacy goes by the Omni Royal Orleans. Designed by famed architect, Arthur David, this 346 room hotel opened in October 1960.

The hotel was constructed to exacting specifications set forth by the Vieux Carre Commission which oversee all historic preservation efforts in the French Quarter. It was to be built upon exact drawing of the St. Louis Hotel with its famed arches, Spanish wrought iron railings down to the precise height and dimensions which outlined the Paris look “Mansard Roof.”

The Omni Royal Orleans opening on the city’s most fashionable corners became the haunt of the local social elite, famous entertainers and infamous politicians. To this day, it’s known as “the place to see and be seen.” Our signature restaurant, “The Rib Room” has been enjoyed by patrons for 50 years. Many notable occurrences such as the idea for Superdome and the Louisiana Jazz and Heritage Festival were developed in the Pipkin Room within the restaurant. This European elegant hotel stands tall to in maintaining a sense of place while preserving the all the enduring touches of suburb hospitality.
