Great Choice

Very nice, simple hotel. Desk staff was very friendly. Really nice breakfast bar. Free parking in a secure gated lot was a great advantage since I had a rental car (it was the only hotel I found with free parking). Room was clean and quiet. One great feature is the hotel fronts on the main street car line that goes right to Bourbon Street. So the hotel is in a quiet residential area, but you are 10 minutes from the party and restaraunts. Highly recommend this value-priced hotel.

Perfect place to stay to while visiting New Orleans

The location is perfect. Easy access of public transportation almost anywhere. Staffs are friendly. Room is rather small but sufficient to sleep and rest. Breakfast items are adequate. Car parked in secure gated place and it is free. Very nice ambient.

French Quarter: Lots of restaurants, listening to jazz, shopping. By taking the public transportation, it will take you to these places without the headache of driving in traffic and difficult to find parking.

Great location!

Stayed here for a long weekend for the Final Four. The location and neighborhood is fantastic. We walked everywhere or caught a streetcar which stops within 200 feet of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location in a beautiful area

I went for three nights, starting on a Friday. There was quite a bit going on, including a Saints/Falcons football game. I think this was part of the noise problem, as I think there were a fair number of fans in the hotel. Much celebrating after the visiting team won in overtime. The staff was helpful and the breakfast very nice. It was certainly good value for the money, especially given that the hotel next door was $50-$80 more a night and those rooms were MUCH smaller than the one I stayed in. I know this b/c that is where I had friends staying. This hotel is right on the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line and is convenient to anywhere you want to go, without being in the middle of the fray. The Garden District is beautiful and the stay was really nice.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Try to travel by streetcar or on foot. If you want to go to the heavily visited areas like the French Quarter, you will spend more time in your cab, going nowhere, than if you used the streetcars to get there.Buy a pass for multiple day use.
