It is what it is

Located right near Jackson Square, this old timey hotel provides everything you need for staying in the French Quarter. Good sized room (just not vertically, watch your head tall folks) but don't waste your time in the hotel if you're visiting the French Quarter. As quiet a hotel as you can find in the French quarter.

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.

Perfect location in the French Quarter

Location, location, location.... If you want to stay in the French Quarter you will not find a better location. The staff is very friendly and courteous. We arrived before the check-in time, so they took our bags and held them until the room was ready. They have a very nice outdoor pool in their courtyard, which is quiet and secluded from the outside world - you don't feel like you're in the center of the French Quarter. They provide a free Continental breakfast which consisted of apples, some pastries, muffins, coffee and juice. The only strange part of the hotel is that our room had no windows. This really wasn't a big deal since we were only in the room to sleep, but it was still a strange sensation. It was advertised as interior room, which we thought meant it looked over the courtyard, but it didn't. Other than that, the room was perfect for our needs. Great hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location, lovely people

The hotel is historic and lovely, and in a super location--I could walk to all the major sights quite easily. The staff were superb as well--very friendly. At $70, it was a great deal for the money as well. My only complaint, besides the fact that the pool wasn't clean, is that I didn't realize "interior room" meant a room with no windows! That was definitely a strange experience.

Great Location, Great Price

Did things all over the city and outskirts. Parking was an additional $25 dollar a night, and was located at the hotel in a guarded lot. A reasonable price. We had a room with no windows, which was fine but next time I'd pay the extra amount for a room with windows.

Quaint and beautiful place

We were able to walk out our door and walk all around the French Quarters. Jackson Square was across the street. The place was beautiful and quaint with a pool and sitting area in the courtyard surrounded by beautiful plants and a small fish pond. Peaceful place in the middle of the French Quarter. Lovely!

Several places around to dine. We loved the desserts at Brennan's and many other places were great too. Loved the parking, it felt safe and the attendants were friendly.
