          Not much. The location was the best thing about it.

          The parking was too expensive and the staff was rude. I had reservations for a queen room and ended up with 2 double beds. The rooms were not modern at all, needs a makeover.

          The bed was nice and comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water.

          The hairs in my bathroom,the extra charges I wasn't notified of when booking my room online, the sheer curtains that let in bright light from the hotel across the street, the loud drunks in the next room who woke me up playing loud music when they came in at five oclock in the morning, the long wait for my car when I checked out, even though I was urged to hurry up and vacate my room, when I told the desk clerk I was going to be a few minutes late checking out. Also, the room I booked was not available when I checked in.

          There was nothing I liked about my stay at the Royal St. Charles. The location was the only redeeming attribute.

          Do not stay here...! Camping out in Jackson Square would be a better alternative. I have traveled extensively worldwide and I absolutely think the Royal St. Charles is one of the worst hotels I have ever experienced. With very few exceptions, the staff was rude, untrained and insulting. Many of the rooms are interior rooms with no window or like my room, a glass brick window between the guest room and a storage room. Security is non-existent and there is no relation between the high price & very low value provided. Especially for single females traveling alone, I believe this hotel is dangerous. Your credit card is charged upon arrival for all possible charges during your stay and then credits are issued at check-out, after extensive argumentation.

          Large rooms, good location.

          A woman on staff was unfriendly and fairly rude, was not aware of my reservation but luckily a room was available.

          The staff was nice and also helpful, the location was great as we were central to everything. However, the room and bed were smaller than expected.

          The high rate for parking is over the top and I won't stay again unless the parking rate drops (If you are trying to go economical and get a cheap room do you want to pay more than a third extra for parking?) and nine dollars for wi-fi is absurd.

          Location is very good. Services are near. The area felt safer than we anticipated.

 pages say that wifi is free. However, they charged for it.

          i know that we payed for the location but the room was horrible.

          i know that we payed for the location but the room was horrible, when we got to the room it was super small and me and my wife was getting claustrophobic, the bathroom was hitting the toilet when you open the door. Therefore we asked for a bigger room and there were stains on the chair and the tv picture wasnt clear. Overall the location was good and the hotel stay was bad.

          I liked the fact that the staff was nice and also prompt at fixing a slight problem with my particular room.

          The smell of paint. But that is only temporary due to undergoing it rebeautification!

          In front of the action. You can reach the french quarter just crossing the street.

          A bit expensive, but we took a last minute offer and the price as 20% lower
