If you want to stay just off Bourbon Street and have an authentic New Orleans experience then stay at the Biscuit Palace! The host was very hospitable and welcoming. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a great balcony which we watched a parade from. The "palace" isn't luxury but it's centrally located and fun.

Look no further! The Biscuit Palace is incredibly authentic and has a great history - The owners are amazing and I've had nothing but great experiences. I even had a wedding there in 1997! Total hidden treasure - you'll love it!

Just completed my 3rd visit in 10 years. Loved it. The atmosphere is so warming and actually takes you back in time which is just the ticket if you need to decompress. Stress flows out the window when you stay here. Clayton is a great guy and a wealth of info. This is not a spic n span hotel room.... More

We have been guests at the Biscuit Palace for more than 15 years, staying for between 5 and 7 days every Mardi Gras. For 13 of those years we have been joined in our suite by other guests who have stayed with us. During this busiest of seasons for the French Quarter we have found the Biscuit Palace, its owner...

Well, this is definitely a true New Orleans experience! If you are looking for an old-fashioned traditional guest house in a superb location near Bourbon Street, you have found it! Beyond that, there are some issues. Keep in mind that this is NOT a hotel and do not expect the amenities of one. There is a beautiful quaint courtyard, quiet... More

I realize that guest houses in New Orleans are old and out-dated, however this one is so filthy it needs to be shut down. We stayed in the downstairs "suite" (not a suite at all) and we couldn't even use the shower because we are older and couldn't navigate the climb over the wide wall around the bathtub to enter...

Stayed here on a family trip in October 2015. It is run down with no much in amenities. We stayed in the barracks & brought our own sheets & towels. I like the location except for the noise coming from the corner bar till 5am. I'll find someplace else next time.

There were 7 of us in total and we stayed for 5 nights in the Barracks and Burgundy suites. The Barracks is the only suite on the 4th floor (actually it's the entire 4th floor) and the Burgundy suite is on the 3rd floor with a shared balcony overlooking Dumaine with a peek of Bourbon Street.

Someone once said to me NOLA is a living museum and I have to agree. As we sit on the balcony on the Bourbon Suite ( the Royal Suite has the end corner balcony ) you can't help but think about how this view has and hasn't changed in 200+ years. You're looking down, half a block off Bourbon Street... More

We have stayed here twice already. We have been in a different themed room each time as each room of the 5 available is different.

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.
