This place is nothing less than amazing, beautiful rooms decorated with style. Old building with charm, and the location is perfect, close to everything and in the quiet area of the french quarter. The host Kelly is simply fantastic, arranging, advicing for all you want to experience in New orleans - and every afternoon at 5pm there is happy hour...

This was the second time staying at the Royal Barracks. Love it. Stayed in the Blue Room. Cool and funky as always! Also, the street is quiet. The hostess/manager is very friendly and great to talk to. Will stay here again. I love funky, quirky, quiet, and comfortable.

We've been here three times, and this trip sealed the deal for future trips due to the kindness of Kelly, the hostess and her adorable dog Sugah! She sits with us and socializes while sharing ideas of places to visit, so we get a local's perspective. Our favorite room is the suite so that we have a comfortable place to...

Probably would give it 3.5 if possible. It ranks four stars for the location and hospitality. Quiet and convenient. I stayed in The Suite, and it could use a bit of TLC. But I have recommended it to others and would stay there again. Good value for NOLA. Free WiFi is a plus. If you want to hang out on...

Best experience! I've been to NOLA several times but by far staying at the Royal Barracks made my experience exceptional. You are welcomed by Kelly who is absolutely wonderful and makes you feel right at home! We stayed in the Peacock Room set in a Shotgun style house. There is a quaint courtyard in the back for a pre or...

We absolutely loved staying here! We stayed December 17-20. Upon arrival, Kelly and the dog gave us a tour, a glass of Chardonnay, and showed us to our room. I love how private our room seemed. We stayed in the Blue Room, which was the smallest room, but we don't need much space. The bed was comfortable, bottled water was...

Stayed at the Royal Barracks Guest house and as usual it was wonderful! Kelly and Sugah were amazing hosts. This is the perfect spot to stay if you want to party in the quarter or on Frenchman! It is conveniently located and the rooms are so comfortable and clean. This is not our first stay here and won't be our...

My husband and I stayed here for my b-day weekend! We live in New Orleans, but love to have staycations and experience the many hotels and attractions NOLA has to offer!

We spent a weekend at Royal Barracks Guest House, a real find for French Quarter accommodations. It is quiet, yet convenient to the party that is Bourbon Street, galleries on Royal Street, Frenchmen Street restaurants and art market, the French Market and the Riverfront Streetcar - easy walking or riding to everywhere we wanted to go.

The Royal Barracks is a step back in time, superbly appointed and meticulously decorated to reflect the true character and music origins of New Orleans. It is in a quiet street, but close to the action In Frenchmen and Bourbon Streets. Kelly who runs the Royal Barracks is a beautiful lady only too happy to help with her local knowledge...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
