Hotel as Old and Beautiful as the French Quarter Itself!

This is a small, old building right on Decatur St. in the heart of the French Quarter. Perfect for an authentic, historical experience. The pool/patio is beautiful but not all that functional (very shallow and small, more of a fountain). The rooms are big and reasonably priced. No refrigerator in my room. We were able to walk to Bourbon St, Frenchman St, and anything the French Quarter has to offer. Staff is wonderfully friendly and accommodating.

Fun in the French quarter

This quiet quaint and accessible hotel may not have all the modern amenities, but it gives you what you need at an affordable price- close to all the NO action and activities, the staff are helpful and nice. If you need to have a work area or a posh bathroom- this isn't for you- but if you need a clean and well outfitted place for the night time, this is it

Deaux Deaux is a great spot for strong hurricanes in a fish bowl. Refills are only 5 dollars. The hand grenades are amazing. Service is awesome, friendly and entertaining.

Hotel st. Helene

Greeted with the most friendly staff. Complimentary breakfast. Great location between Decatur and bourbon st. 24 hour pool and free wifi. Every time we left the staff would wish us a great time out and welcome us back. Best hotel in the French quarter.

Fantastic short stay

We'd read a number of negative reviews about the hotel, so we were a little worried about what to expect. But, our fears were allayed upon arrival. The room was small, but not overly so, and provided us with everything we needed. We were able to access the tv, control the AC and room fan and the bathroom, while small, was modern. We did have a room with a window onto an interior courtyard with stairs, but it wasn't really a problem. The staff were polite and courteous and the location was excellent. We'd happily stay here again.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

It's well worth it to travel outside the French Quarter; there is so much more to the city than that small part of town. And while it is charming, there are a lot of wonderful dining establishments sprinkled throughout the city.

French Quarter Ambiance

This hotel fit the FQ like an old well worn glove. The room was clean and the bathroom was newly renovated, but the TV had no reception and apparently could not be fixed. The staff was friendly, the continental breakfast adequate, but the bed was lumpy and the bed linens poor.

Not really a hotel, more of a rooming house...roll with it

Something wrong with the room? There isn't really anybody who can help. New flat screen TVs, but 'the cable is out.' 'No it will not likely be fixed soon.' This is the loudest 'hotel' I've ever been in, from people talking to banging their luggage up and down the stairs (no elevator). If you sleep like a rock then ok for a one night stay. Small rooms
