Great anniversary trip

The hotel was quiet and comfortable, only one block to Jackson Square, so close to everything. Get a room in the back looking over the pool. They offer a light breakfast of sweet rolls and coffee. Recommend Deanie's Seafood for oysters and gumbo, and Court of Two Sisters for brunch. Don't be afraid of the line at Cafe du Monde. The beinets and cafe au lait are worth the 20 minutes. Pretty cheap beer at Jimini, right down the street at Iberville and Chartres. The Airport Shuttle is the cheapest way for two to get there and worked out well.

Enjoyable experience - great location

This hotel is superbly located in the French Quarter. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, the bed was uncomfortable, and the walls and doors were a bit dirty and tired. Our room was a courtyard suite which opened onto the courtyard, which meant we could hear every word spoken outside and every splash in the pool. No reserved parking at this hotel, and the nearby parking was extremely expensive, even for the French Quarter, at $35 overnight.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you fly don't rent a car - parking is extortionate and you don't need one to get around the French Quarter.

A week in N'awlins

This hotel is located in the French Quarter right near everything people usually go to see. The room was smaller than most hotel rooms but honestly you're going to be walking around and seeing the city, all you need is a bed to sleep in and a bathroom to get ready. The pool was also a nice amenity. The only complaint was the broken elevator. We were on the 3rd floor but it was only a problem when we checked in and checked out. We are planning to visit this city in the future and would definitely stay here again.

Excellent

Loved it! Would definately go back. Perfect for two, small and quaint but when u don't plan on spending much time at the hotel a clean small room is all you need! It was in a historic New Orleans style building and it was beautiful.

Perfect Location

We stayed 9 nights at St. Helene and had a wonderful holiday. I think that the location and the staff is what makes this place so special. A dip in the pool was also a very welcome refreshment. My only gripe would be that the room we stayed in had no soundproofing so we could hear everything in the room next door, which happened to be constant coughing and a loud TV. However, you can't hear noise from the street and anyway we spent most of our time exploring and enjoying the city as it is at the doorstep of the hotel. We'll be back!
