Lovely Old World Hotel

This is a lovely and elegant hotel. The staff was really great. My only complaint is that the rooms were a bit smaller than we are used to and my Mom had trouble getting hot water in her handicapped accessible room. We had very nice breakfasts in Criollo, the restaurant in the hotel and enjoyed Pimm's Cups in the Carousel Bar. This is a great location too! Royal Street has wonderful shops.

Great Location

This hotel is located one block off Bourbon and is a beautiful hotel. Be sure to check out the Carousel Bar in the lobby of the hotel! Easy walk to the French Market and just about anywhere else you might want to go in the Quarter

Family Getaway

The hotel was just okay. Our room was small and had the worst view. The walls were thin and we could hear the people in the next room. I was really expecting more because of the price of the room. There was also a charge to use the internet. The positives of this trip was the staff was nice and attentive and the hotel was located in the French Quarter.

amazing friendly and peaceful

This beautiful historic hotel is in the heart of the French Quarter with plentiful delights in walking distance. The staff was friendly and quick to provide assistance and answer questions. Great food and tour recommendations with a lovely pool and bar area. Room service was delicious and the room was peaceful despite the proximity to Bourbon Street and the number of guests around us. Highly recommended!

Love this hotel!

This was a spontaneous trip to celebrate my wife's remission from cancer and we have no regrets with our choice of hotel. Absolutely a beautiful, old hotel. Anyone complaining the rooms are too small are whiners--why the heck are you spending so much time in your room in New Orleans ayway? If you want a bigger room, pay the upgrade. If you want a generic, cookie cutter hotel room with useless extra space, go to a chain hotel, not a boutique hotel. The room was clean. Bed was clean. Bathroom was clean. Hotel staff--excellent! Rooftop pool and poolside bar service--excellent and refreshing get away time to relax before/after hitting the streets and sites--Lisbeth and Julie rock!. Carousel Bar was a blast...bartenders Parker and Eddie make a great drink and are fantastic ambassadors. Doormen and bellhops are great secret sources for local info. Didn't try the spa. Didn't have dinner there, but appetizers we're awesome!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Camellia's Cafe on Chartres St for breakfast. Diner style, counter seating only, best coffee in NOLA, staff is hilarious and if you ask for it, they will make it. Inexpensive, modest, but you can't beat the food and the atmosphere.
