Pro: location, beds, very hot water, charming building, stylish. Con: loud air conditioner, no onsite parking or valet offered, shower hadn’t been cleaned well, no real in room amenities you’d expect for the price range. Overall a comfortable enough room, but wasn’t really a boutique experience and for the price, I’d go somewhere that offered more.

Wife and I celebrated our 20yr Anniversary here. We loved that the property was tucked away but still walking distance to everything. Room was small and cozy...just what we need. *** A MUST BOUTIQUE HOTEL FOR ANYONE SEEKING THAT NEW ORLEANS CHARM!!!!

The building is really cool. The color is unique. I love the design and decoration on the hotel. The rooms are a little small but it worked for us. Not a fan of the cement floors, would of been better if a few throw rugs were scattered throughout the room. We didn't get maid service and had to keep asking for toilet paper and ask for towels for the next day. We had an ice bucket but no cups and a pad of paper with no pen or pencil.And since it's been flooded time and time again, you can smell the mustiness and see some mold around the air condition unit. Location was nice being that it was close but far enough away. But lots of construction going on from the previous storms. I'd stay again but I would request the second floor.

Simple, clean room...perfect for showering and sleeping, and a little work. Front desk staff super friendly, and the bar is cool.

Unique setting. Great change of pace from traditional hotels.

Beautiful courtyard and location. Shower is attached to room without a door (important to know)

Pros: cute and well located. Cons: we didn't get room service 2 days in a row despite leaving the "service please" card on the door handle, and there was no storage space in the room (closets or drawers) which was unpractical.

the property was beautiful and the rooftop bar was eloquent.

The roof deck was amazing. Great location as well.

It a quaint hotel near the French quarter. A 20 minute walk into the center of it all, which isn’t too bad. I’d stay here again - cleanliness and the staff’s attention to those who chose to stay here are the main reasons I would stay here again!

Really cool decor. Minimal, yet well thought out. Convenient to trolley lines and main points of interest. Staff was friendly and courteous. I know it's a environment and staff saver, but you should at least come in every second or third day and give new towels and sheets and a basic cleaning without the guest asking. Vacation is for a little pampering. I get the eco-friendly vibe, but ya'll will get lots more roaches if you don't come in and pick the trash up from the rooms at least a few times a week.

Summary: Bare bones of what you need when you stay at a hotel. You stay here for a bed and shower. The layout is nice and has a cool design but isn't the cleanest. Loud. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Issues here lie in the rooms and room layout, not management and staff. Considerations: If you are on the first floor, bring earplugs. You are right by the front desk and bar. Rooms are tiny from what I saw as I passed by the side entrance (you can see into the rooms there if the shades are open from the outside). I recommend booking on the second/third. The building is split into two sections. The main building is loud. There is a bar on the third floor, so music is loud before closing. After closing, all was well. I recommend asking for a specific room, if you so choose to stay here, that's away from the main area. Room 27: Larger room. We got a great king size bed. Comfortable mattress. Clean sheets. Nice blanket and 4 nice pillows. 3 sets of large and small towels and extra toilet paper. The curtain was falling apart though. The shower has wood floors that should be repolished. Bring flip flops. No slippers even though the floor is concrete. We had a nice private balcony which I loved. Cleaning service isn't amazing. Visible dust and sometimes forgetful in changing the bed and bringing new amenities. Lots left to be desired. Wish there was a fridge. Bathroom door and private balcony door didn't close. Shades weren't working properly either. Good area.

Room was smaller than expected. Smelled musty, since shower is practically in the room next to the bed vs in a bathroom. House keeping only came once during our 4 night stay. Definitely a lot nicer looking in pics online vs in person.

This hotel is in a pretty good location but the rooms are really poor. The floor is not even carpeted or tiled - literally you are standing on the outside floor. The desk is tiny and the sink is near the bed (there is no separate bathroom). This might be fine if you're looking for that kind of "experience", but it's far from a luxury hotel.
