No-one else was staying here whilst we were there and now I know why. This is tired, rundown and messy. The wifi does not work. The rooms are very overpriced. The owners do not respond to email and did not respond to our complaints at the property. Very disappointed as this was my holiday getaway but instead we had to pay more money to move hotels to get wifi to allow my husband to work. Avoid staying here.

There is no doubt about the links between the city and Jazz. Taking advantage of it you can really feel the music and start an vintage trip to the origins of creole music and jazz including street dancing. Visit the place and drift away!

This was a family vacation of two parents and two boys (30 and 25 years old) from Sunday through Saturday. We were celebrating the graduation of our 25-year-old who'd spent some time in New Orleans a few years back in the lower ninth district as a service project. We were specifically looking for a suite with two bedrooms. The location of the Jazz Quarter is nice. It is a quick walk to N Rampart Street which has a street car line. It has a nice feel. There is a central courtyard and typically the weather was nice to sit outside in the morning and read or whatever. When we arrived, our original room (Connick) wasn’t ready so we spent 3 nights in the Al Hirt suite. This was very roomy with two bedrooms one with two double beds and the other with two queens. Perfect for us. The layout was a little weird, however, with only one full bath off the queens so everyone had to travel through the bedroom to shower. Also, from the queens you had to walk through the double. Fine for us but maybe a little weird if you were with friends instead of family. There is a large dining area with wonderful light that looks onto central patio and parking area. Great place to gather (where we watched the Red Sox beat the Yankees in the ALDS). Also attached to the dining area was a commercial kitchen. In the old days, breakfast was probably cooked and served here. There was a small half-bath off the dining room. If your an animal lover, there were dogs barking at various times throughout the day and night best heard in the king bedroom. Half way through our stay we switched to the Connick rooms. A bit of a letdown with cramped quarters with no chairs or desk (or room for either) but with the requisite two bedrooms with one king and another with two doubles.The bathroom was conveniently located in between the bedrooms. The coffee maker was located in the bedroom with doubles so we moved the coffee maker to bathroom. The patio was not well maintained but still a great space to relax. The WiFi did not work in Connick. The door to the doubles really sticks. I was always worried I was going to break it. We use this door a lot as the other bedroom lock to the king didn’t work. The king bed was also a little like NOLA with a canal (dip) in the middle and levees on the sides. The bed sheet had a hole as did a towel. As with all old buildings, not enough outlets. Also, both rooms a little too dark. TV in king was small and did not get cable. The other TV did work fine. The house staff was very helpful. A little pricey but everything is in and around the French Quarter.

If you can't travel to New Orleans, you can hear Doreen Ketchens phenomenal jazz on YouTube. However if you are lucky enough to hear her play live, it is VERY LIVE! I've been told that Louis Armstrong got his start playing on New Orleans cruise ships, and Jimmy Buffet first played in basement coffee shops (Just try to get tickets to his concerts now. HA!!!) For the price of a tip into the Doreen Ketchens' tip bucket you can hear some of the best jazz music anywhere. I've heard recordings of Benny Goodman playing clarinet. In my opinion Ms. Ketchens is better. WOW. It is musicians like her that make New Orleans world famous for it's jazz. THANK YOU, Doreen Ketchens!!!!!

We just finished a five night stay at the Jazz Quarters. It’s a pleasant place that is secured by a gate and high fences and lays just across Rampart from the French Quarter. The room we stayed in, the Fountain, was directed very nicely. The only issue we had as the four poster bed wasn’t secured to the wall, so every time either I or my wife got up in the night the other was also awakened. Made for a fitful night’s sleep. If that wasn’t the case, I’d have given Jazz Quarters four or five stars but I’ll leave it at three.

My husband and I recently traveled to New Orleans with another couple. We each had a suite at The Jazz Quarters and we loved staying there. It's an easy walk to anywhere is the French Quarter but very quiet. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The bathrooms are equally large and well-appointed. Robert and Lorraine were the perfect hosts. They recommended music and restaurants and gave us lots of good tips for making the most of our visit.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Jazz Quarters in the Kermit cottage. The room was very well appointed with separate sitting and sleeping areas. It had a small fridge and a coffee maker, and a carafe of filtered water was replaced every day. The room was very quiet (except for a couple of dogs somewhere nearby howling during the night) and made for a great respite on the hot NOLA days. It's literally a 2 minute walk into the heart of the French Quarter. Two notes: 1. There is no sign of any kind outside the inn. The cab driver even questioned dropping us there since there seemed to be nothing but locked gates on the building. Just buzz the gate and you'll be let in. The area inside the gates is quite nice. 2. There is no breakfast service here anymore. The listing really should get moved to inns instead of B&Bs. There are places nearby that serve breakfast, but many are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so be forewarned. Overall, a very nice place to stay when visiting NOLA.

We just left NOLA and our little cottage Connick. We shared the 2 bedroom cottage with another couple and it was perfect for our needs. Loved the outdoor courtyard right next to our cottage. Having secured, gated parking was a huge bonus. We parked our cars the day we arrived and walked everywhere. The furthest we walked for an outing was just less than a mile. Super convenient location, quiet and cute.

Great little place in the heart of New Orleans near the French quarter. Quaint room and wonderful staff! Wish we could have stayed longer! Easy to get to public transit and to walk to good restaurants.

This is a very nice little place off the beaten path. The managers are friendly and helpful. The beds are super comfy. Morning coffe is available in the lounge as well as in each room. We were given lots of information for things to do and places to eat as well and some “local” tips. It has a nice little courtyard with tables and chairs for morning coffee of afternoon drinks.
