Thank you Warren for getting us in for the week of Mardis Gras!. Best time ever. This place has the best vibe. Everyone feels welcome, like family. This place is authentic. It is old, but that is the charm of it. We were in New Orleans to be outside, not inside. We don't need a gym or a pool. Walk... More

Rumored to be the original "House of the Rising Sun", this hotel is historic and charmingly authentic. Jimmy Buffet lived here in his early days when the hotel was a boarding house. If you want a cultural experience in a nice quiet hotel loaded with quirks and history then you must stay here! There is a courtyard in the middle... More

We loved the location and even though it is in a prime area it is quiet and relaxing. Booked this for my daughters wedding and all the rooms were nice except one... More

From the moment we arrived, the staff was amazing! Warren was exceptionally helpful. He stored our bags, made reservations for the ghost tour, gave us tips where to eat, and was super friendly. We were given one of the haunted rooms and were able to go have a look see at one of the other ones. We were also able... More

I've been to the city numerous times and I have to admit the location is amazing! I was quite shocked how convenient it was to everything- we walked everywhere within the quarter. Overall the hotel was lovely, i appreciate the authentic vibe of the place and it's cool to know Jimmy Buffet was had a room at this old boarding... More

I am really overwhelmed by the wonderful and charming staff who gave me the best tipps what to see and where to eat in the whole town (by neighborhoods!!), everybody is always up for a laugh with you! The hotel is placed perfectly in the French Quarter, close enough to Bourbon Street for party people but far enough to not... More

From the moment I booked I knew this was the place to stay. My girlfriends and I came down for my birthday and stayed the week with Villa Convento. Because of that - and mainly Emily, our concierge- we have had a thoroughly authentic New Orleans experience. She sent us to all the best - read BEST, not pricey -... More

Hotel Villa Convento is located in the famous French Quarter. On Ursulines St, between Royal St. & Chartres St. Only 1 1/2 blocks to Bourbon St & 3 blocks from Jackson Square. I loved this hotel it was just so romantic & charming. The walls have some natural & painted brick walls. Some of the paint is pealing, but I... More

When Hotel Villa Convento first came on my radar I was impressed by how many wonderful things people had said about it. The prices were great and they offer free (off-parking) which is almost unheard of in the Quarter, so I took a chance and I am SO glad I did. The hotel is charming, old-world New Orleans. And yes,...
