Great location

Great location. But its an older building (which is not all bad as it has character) and the maintenance/cleanliness could be better. The room is nicely furnished, but somewhat crowded due to its smaller size...okay for a couple, but no more. We had to change rooms the last night as a mouse ran into our 2d floor room and we didn't want him in our luggage, etc.. The courtyard is beautiful, in the New Orleans style. Biggest complaint, the maid service wasn't very good and the kitchen staff wasn't very friendly.

Grand Location - Good Hotel

The Place D'Armes is situated in a perfect location for exploring the French Quarter. It is half a block from Jackson Square and close to everything else - Chartres and Royal St. sandwich the hotel with Bourbon St. an easy walk yet distant enough to avoid the bedlam. I've stayed at the Place D'Armes twice before and have never regretted the choice. The hotel rooms vary dramatically as does the reception one receives at the front desk on checking in. This time the check in was mostly disinterested bordering on cold. The rooms were large though showing their age with torn wall paper and in need of a refurbishment. Location being everything, however, one really doesn't stay long in the rooms anyway. Overall, even given the tired quality of the furnishings, the rooms and amenities are comfortable. The continental breakfast is a plus as are the courtyards which provide a relaxing and atmospheric shelter from the frantic energy of the Quarter.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

My friends were interested in exploring the fashion boutiques and they were more than satisfied with their experience. I enjoyed the great antique and art stores. always just a block or two away.

Fabulous Location

This was our first time staying at the Place D'Armes. The location can't be beat, it is right next to Jackson Square, 2 blocks from Bourbon St., a short walk to the French Market, and within walking distance of many, many restaurants and bars. The staff seemed friendly, and the room was clean. The hotel and courtyard were charming- very old and historic. The hotel provides a continental breakfast that was merely ok, but Cafe Du Monde is right down the street, as well as a multitude of other breakfast stops. If you arrive early and your room is not ready, the hotel will happily check your luggage for you. The staff also helped us with getting a cab so we could get to the airport on time. There is onsite parking as well, although you really do not need a car while staying in the french quarter.

I found my new favorite

I've been to New Orleans a few times and this was by far the best hotel for location. It was perfectly New Orleans. I will definitely stay there again. The courtyard was spectacular.

Wonderful Experience

I wanted to find a hotel that held the same character and charm of the French Quarter and we did. It was just wonderful and the staff could not do enough for us. They were so extremely accommadating. We are definitely planning a return visit.

great location at a reasonable price

Place D'Armes, has a great location in a quiet area of the French Quarter. The windowless room was clean,the bed uncomfortable,the staff pleasant and the breakfast minimally qualified to be call thus. If you are on a tight budget as we were O.k, if not there are many other options.

My review of Place D'Armes French Quarter

The Hotel is in a wonderful area of the French Quater. It was a wonderful hotel. Just one problem with our stay. The bed was not large enough and a little hard. However, every other aspect of the stay was great....

The main downfall was that the bed was uncomfortable and the airconditioning unit was noisy. Otherwise for the cost it was a good value.

Very nice nd the location was perfect. I would stay here again and tell friends

Hotel was small and family like the rooms were a little small but this was not an issue. (who wants to stay in the room, no windows) The hotel was located right in the heart of Jackson square and it was easy to walk from the hotel to every where in the city. The staff was nice and I felt staff coming in late at night. The breakfast in the morning was just coffee and sweet breads, but it was ok nothing wonderful. I would stay here again and tell others. GREAT visit and great value for your money.
