NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA PROPERTY EST. 1843 In 1843, St. Louis at Royal, the most fashionable corner in the French Quarter of New Orleans, saw the opening of the magnificent Saint Louis hotel, which welcomed 600 guests to its three glorious floors. This beautiful property hosted the city’s most lavish banquets and balls until the Civil War, when it began a steady decline. In 1960, it opened again as the Royal Orleans, a world-class hotel, a palace in the finest European tradition. Today, the Omni Royal Orleans boasts 27 years of four-diamond luxury awards for its opulent accommodations, peerless amenities, and excellent service. The Zagat award-winning Rib Room has been a favorite since 1960, and events are unforgettable in the hotel’s 14,000 square feet of flexible space, which includes the Grand Salon. 19th-century Creole patrons of the St. Louis (later Royal Orleans) enjoyed a drink called a coquetier. Little adept with the Creole accent, Americans pronounced the drink cocktail instead.
