Great Hotel!

2 blocks from Canal and the gateway to the French Quarter. This is a SWEET hotel with an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Small enough to feel at home during your stay and a beautiful redo of a classic New Orleans building. The room was perfect for the two of us. Our friends from Paris, who stayed at one of the giant hotels a few blocks away, said they wished they knew about our hotel. And, they will definitely stay there next time!

Wonderful Staff

Very nice breakfast, amenities and fast easy check in, check out. Staff was more than accommodating! This is the second time I've stayed there in 6 months; good location that is close to the quarter and downtown but without the hassle and price. Valet parking is too expensive but worth it I guess in a big city.

Great low-cost option for those wanting to stay near everything

This hotel was in close walking distance to the French Quarter, WWII museum, and trolley. The concierge, front desk staff, and valet were very friendly and helpful. After doing a lot of research we thought this was definitely the best hotel for your buck and were not at all disappointed. The free breakfast and evening cookies were also a big plus!

First time to New Orleans

My husband and I stayed in this hotel during our first stay in New Orleans. We found the hotel to be clean and the staff to be friendly. The breakfast service does not accommodate out-of-state travelers who may be experiencing jet-lag, though! While the staff had some good recommendations for bars and restaurants, they neglected to direct us to the most obvious choices. The Chophouse directly across the street from the hotel is wonderful - the hotel staff never recommended it. There is a great bar and grill two blocks down from the hotel (The Warehouse Grille), and again, it was never recommended to us. The concierge did not have personal experience with any of the tours and was not able to answer our questions. Overall, though, the hotel was comfortable and the staff was welcoming.

The Warehouse Grille is two blocks from the hotel on the way to the WWII museum. Cheap pints and good food!

Loved this hotel!

Ideally located, close to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, and the WWII museum, but far enough away to be quiet and comfortable. We felt completely safe walking everywhere. The hotel is beautifully appointed and has historic significance. The staff were all extremely friendly, polite, and very helpful. The complimentary breakfast was amazing...a full buffet. The concierge recommended a city tour which we absolutely loved. We got a great deal and think it was great value relative to other hotels in the area. Would highly recommend.

Take the bus tour of New Orleans. Our guide funny and very informative, filling us in on NO history and interesting anecdotes about the various neighborhoods. Would highly recommend!

Overbooking

I reserved a room for 3 months prior to the trip. However when we arrived at the hotel our room was already occupied and we were offered to stay in another very small room without an extra bed. My son slept on the floor. Next days we were in the booked room, but there was only window for two rooms. It was pretty small and didn't open. So there was problems with fresh air:( Finaly...administration promised us to return a purt of the cost for the first night, but didn't do it.
