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.

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.

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.

"Unbeatable Location"

Hotel was fine. Rooms very spacious. Air Conditioner worked well. Disappointed about $28.00 parking fee that was not mentioned when booked. Cut out on some of the savings that I was after.

Preservation Hall for jazz without alcohol... the Hall or its small room with only benches or floor space for seating is the pits, but the place is still great with its authentic spirit.

Excellent location

We have stayed at this hotel on previous trips and just love the location by Jackson Square. Easy to walk around the French Quarter and see the sights and easy to get back to safely at night. Nice pool and courtyard area to sit and read for a while during the day. We stayed in an interior room this time without a window and although it was fine it really is much nicer to have a window or be off the courtyard. The rooms are not perfect - a little mildew in the shower, not the best mattresses (but much better this year than last). If you want a fancy room you might look for something more upscale, but we don't spend our time in NOLA in the room so we will stay here again!

Coop's Place is my favorite place to eat. The jambalaya is fantastic. This trip a local suggested I try the smoked duck Quesadillas. They were outstanding too!

Reasonable price for the location

We have been to New Orleans 5 times and this was our best trip ever. We enjoyed quiet time in the court yard at the Place De Arms, concert at St. Louis Cathedral, shopping on Magazine Street, riding the St. Charles street car to the end of the line and back. I hesitate to mention this because it is a little known secret! We took the ferry to Algiers Point and ate lunch at the Toute Suite Cafe and walked the historic district. It was a wonderful experience. Aout the hotel staff. From the time we arrived (garage parking staff) until we left, everyone was friendly and professional.
