We really enjoyed our stay and I feel we got a great value. The staff was very helpful and called us when our room was ready. All the staff members were quick to help and offered tips and information. The location in the French Quarter was great and close to the bus, restaurants and the French Market. The room was...

Amazing staff especially Desk clerk Minnie. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but Minnie made sure that we were comfortable, and wowed us with her southern charm while we waited. Once we checked in we fell in love our room and throughly enjoyed the cozy courtyard. We would definitely stay here again!!

The hotel was recommended to us by a local resident. I called and after getting shuffled around a bit, was able to make a reservation, 6 months in advance. This was meant to be a family vacation. Afterwards, we purchased a home and thus canceled the vacation because all of our vacation fund went to the down payment. When calling...

Hi Danielle, sorry to learn of the difficulties with your reservation cancellation. Whenever cancellations occur, we issue a cancellation number by phone, with email follow-up, so the cancellation is formally confirmed for your peace-of-mind and for hotel records. This is standard policy throughout the hotel industry. Our records don't reflect the cancellation ever occurred. When you called recently, our staff...

We stayed here for our anniversary and lived it. The staff were very friendly, the room was gorgeous, and they even gave us a gift for our anniversary. I would recommend getting a room with a window or balcony. The price was not bad, but you'll also have to spend about $40 for the valet parking (that's standard for New...

We really enjoyed this hotel. I definitely researched before deciding to book any place in New Orleans. This isn't necessarily a "kid-friendly" hotel but the staff made our children feel like they were the only people in the room. It is an older hotel so it creaks when you walk up the stairs. We had a third floor room with...

We only stayed one night, but would love to return for more. The ambiance of this hotel is quintessential French Quarter. The exposed brick is so beautiful. Our room had a small balcony overlooking Decatur. The bellhops were friendly and attentive as were the front desk staff. We chose to valet park. This was $38 added to the bill; however,...

Great location for French Quarter sight seeing & activities. Reasonable cost for room but parking was $38/night. A Walgreens was close for any shopping needs. Plenty of hot water for showers. Make sure you reserve a room with a window. Noisy housekeeping carts on the stone courtyard at 6 a.m. always woke me up early so you might want to...

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.
