Wonderful location and staff

The location is ideal for enjoying The French Quarter an easy walk to every thing. We rented a car for part of the stay and there is parking available for $25.00 a day. Our room was spotless and comfortable. There was no window but that was not a problem since we were only in it at night and it was so quiet. We will stay at the Place d'Armes again.

Location! Location! Location! Also, quiet beauty and comfort

I loved Place D'Armes and we will definitely return here when we visit again next year. The rooms are nice and simple, but comfy and there were a variety of styles based on your budget. They do not have a bunch of extra amenities so if you are the type of person that enjoys a lot of extra services and perks, this may not be the ideal hotel for you. The location is PERFECT, being right in the center of the beautiful French Quarter. The pool was absolutely delightful for sitting in or around and having some drinks. It also seemed to be primarily patronized by childless couples, if that kind of quiet atmosphere appeals to you (in five days we only saw about six kids total).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can walk around with open containers of beer as long as they are in plastic cups, and most anywhere you go will allow you to bring in your outside beverages as well. I highly recommend Sidney's Wine Cellar at 917 Decatur Street where you can buy individual bottles of a HUGE selection of craft beers, wine, etc for $2+. The cashiers will even provide you with plastic cups if you ask!

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.

Fabulous location, Great price, Wonderful historical hotel

We had a great stay! Hotel is centrally located in the heart of the French Quarter and within walking distance to everything you could possibly want to see. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were very nice. Be careful when booking because some rooms are interior rooms with no windows but are still nice rooms.

Perfect!

The Place D' Armes is an excellent value. Super location. Well maintained facility. Super comfortable with a local flair. The housekeeping staff was on top of their game. I give the place top marks for being a romantic get away as well. I lived in the Quarter for 3 years prior to Katrina. When I return home to New Orleans The Place is my hotel of choice. For breakfast or lunch try Stanley across the street. It is tops as well. Only complaint - Have the front desk refraim from referring to people who book on Orbitz as 3rd party guest and treat them like and refer to them as GUEST as we are the people who insure you salary

A stay to remember

We have been going back to New Orleans for the last four years, staying a week at a time. In the past we have slummed it living in backpacking hostels but after our experience at this hotel, we're never going anywhere else! This hotel was fantastic - the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful with anything we wanted. The room was comfortable, with the enclosed courtyard serene and peaceful. The pool was on the smaller side, but it was sufficient to cool off in before we went out partying again! The singular best thing about the hotel was its location - right in the heart of the French Quarter, a short walk to anywhere you needed to go. Despite its central location, the hotel was always quiet and serene, with almost no traffic noise or screaming partygoers to be heard. If you are looking to have a memorable NOLA experience at a very reasonable rate, then there are a few hotels you can stay at in the French Quarter - the Place D'Armes is one of the best of that lot.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Place D'Armes is located right on Jackson Square, a short walk from anywhere you would like to go to in the French Quarter. Decatur Street is exactly one block away, Bourbon Street is two blocks away. Despite this close proximity to the heart of the French Quarter, the hotel is very quiet and peaceful and perfect if you are trying to get away from it all.
