Yes the rooms are bit run down. "Grandma" the elevator reminds me of a padded cell and who knows if it will make it to your floor. Would I want it any other way? No. If you want fancy go somewhere else. Perhaps in some other city I may not be so pleased with this place but in New Orleans Villa Convento just seems to work. Vince, one of the front desk staff was so helpful and has a truly encyclopedic knowledge of the city and excellent taste in terms of recomending places to visit and eat. An added plus is a great breakfast place right across the street. Its location makes it quiet at night too. If you are looking for a well priced, convenient place and can forgive the slighty run down aspects of the place, I strongly suggest giving this hotel a try. I'm only sorry my room wasnt haunted. I cant wait to come back to this amazing city and another stay at this hotel.
