It is in a quiet part of the French Quarter. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The rooms are large and accommodating with just the right NOLA feel to them. This hotel is close to several tourist attractions and close to tour pickup locations.

We celebrated our 1st Wedding anniversary in the hotel we were married one year ago in their very intimate courtyard. We experienced our expected 'totally satisfied" stay and know we will be back since we have gotten to know a few of the staff who only add to our visits. We missed Ms. Cynthia checking in but she was there...

This is a well located, busy but small hotel. You'll need to book this place in advance to get a room with a terrace because it's not a big place. I recently stayed there for a 2nd time within the last 4 years and they still haven't updated the bedding or furniture but the mattresses seemed new and good. Bathroom...

Good bed, great water pressure, really cool AC & very friendly staff-what more do you need? Fantastic location to a lot of good 'hole in the wall' restaurants & bars. It's a historic hotel & that means some tolerance for creaky floors, older smells. Our room could use some fresh paint & new carpet but it was a great stay.

Conveniently located both the Quarter, shopping, gambling, entertainment and the streetcar. Nice historic boutique hotel. Balconies a huge plus. Stand out staff, comfy rooms, upgraded bathrooms (some in process as of this writing but the one we had was clean and nicely done) and a nice breakfast experience. Parking in the Quarter is predictably expensive. Hotel offered in-and-out privileges, and...

We stayed here for the first three nights of our deep south Road trip/ honeymoon.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
