About Us
Welcome to the Royal Barracks Guest House, Circa 1850's, where the grandeur and glorious reminders of that era are forever preserved in the French Quarter. The buildings in this quaint little area are an eclectic collection of Victorian, Italianate, French & Spanish architectural styles. The vibrant colors applied by creative artisans, and the intricate gingerbread trim, stimulate the senses and awaken memories of our glorious past. Our fully restored Double Shotgun Style Cottage is nestled on quiet residential block in the lower Quarter, just steps away from World Famous Bourbon Street. Interior detailing and our Unique Themed Rooms make our accommodations a pure delight.

As fine an example of a true Double Shotgun Style Cottage as may be found anywhere, our property boasts high ceilings, hardwood floors, pocket doors and antique Victorian furnishings, which conjure memories of that special time in history, and captures the magic of the French Quarter. The restoration of RBGH was meticulously researched and attention was given to every period detail in order to recapture the original beauty and grandeur that is quintessential New Orleans.

All Rooms open onto our high-walled, private courtyard that we maintain for our guests' pleasure. The courtyard, with its wet-bar and tropical plants, is a wonderful place to relax, unwind, and meet with friends.

We take care of the housekeeping, of course, but beyond that, your room is privately yours. You have access to the street through a security gate for which you have your own key. No doorkeeper, no lobby, no hassle. We're here if needed, but most of our guests seem to find their way around amazingly fast.

Personal Attention . Southern Hospitality

We pride ourselves on showering our guests with Southern Hospitality. More than a place to stay, our guests are treated like family, and they return again and again, often booking us a year in advance. The hotel has become a New Orleans tradition with her genteel Southern hospitality.

All within walking distance.

As we are located in the heart of the Quarter, there are far too many delightful taverns, jazz clubs, restaurants, hair salons, antique stores, museums, shops and galleries within walking distance to mention. Leave the car at home, you won't need it here.
