Wonderful old hotel.

The room was nice, but not spectacular. The courtyard however was very nice. Even had a small private pool in the garden. Very close to Jackson Square. I'll definitely go back.

Great price, Great location!

I've stayed in, at least, 13 different hotels in the French Quarter. I would rate this one as either my 2nd or 3rd favorite. Excellent location, right off Jackson Square. The price was great, especially splitting it with a friend. The hotel has so much character. And, yes, many places in the FQ does, but, this hotel has several buildings which makes it unique. I enjoyed going down the old, spiral, staircases instead of using the elevator. The room was clean and roomy, even with 2 beds. I do not remember anything negative about the room, or hotel in general.

Great Vacation

Great location - far enough from the noise of Bourbon Street, but close enough to walk to anywhere in the French Quarter (a block away from Cafe DuMonde). Our room didn't have any windows, so it was nice and dark for sleeping. Safe area of the French Quarter - lots of other tourists around.

Place D'Armes

Overall the experience was good. Just remember when they say inside room that means no windows! (I thought it means inside courtyard view.) However, the room was very clean and comfortable. In the sweltering NO head the inside room was very cool. Nice continental breakfast, appreciated getting a complimentary copy of the local paper. Evening desk clerk was helpful and allowed me to print boarding documents for next day's flight. Location great. Old character of building was charming.

Both good and bad

Some of the hotel staff was very curt, and would not let me finish a question without interrupting with an answer that was both inadequate and somewhat impatient. However, other staff, particularly the night staff, was gracious and helpful when I was looking for dining options. My big disappointment was the room: a blind room, with NO window. There was no warning of it when I arrived. The room was very dark, and the lighting completely inadequate. The bed was made with only a bottom sheet, and I had to wait a long time for the situation to be corrected. This was particularly hard because I was actually sick and generally exhausted, and needed to rest. The so-called 'Continental breakfast was very mediocre: huge old and tasteless croissants, except for the orange juice that was good.

The hotel is very well located. Everything in the French Quarter in within reach (museums in N-O are closed on Monday!). I ended up taking my breakfast at the Caf? du monde, only a few steps away.

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.

downfalls

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