This lovely old hotel is on the edge of the French Quarter so the area is a bit quieter. The staff are super friendly and very helpful (especially Triskell). The rooms are clean and comfy. It's really reasonably priced.... and if all that isn't enough for you... it is the original House of the Rising Sun (allegedly!!)

This is not a 5 start hotel but if you are looking for a quiet place in the French Quarter this is the place to go. It's a basic room with a bath, no mini bar or in room refrigerator but the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly plus it's across the street from a pastry shop.

My best friend and I try to visit the French Quarter every summer. In July of 2013 we were in room 306. Everything was great and Warren was so very friendly and never too busy to visit. So we booked again this year for August 11th. This time we took the 20 year old grandson who wanted to see NO.... More

This review is overdue- we stayed for a long weekend in May 2014. Starting with the positives, the location of this hotel can't be beat. It is within easy walking distance of just about anything in the FQ, but sits in a quiet part of town so you don't hear all the commotion when you want some down time. The... More

This hotels is lovely , with new Orleans character. The beds were clean and comfortable, and we had lovely clean towels, the staff were amazing. The location is perfect of the French market and tourist places. The only thing that let this hotel down is it needs decorating, and new carpets, they are quite old and dirty which is ashame

Excellent location. Nice and kind staff, always helpful. Clean and white towels, good beds, charming inner garden. Interesting old fashioned (New Orleans style) building. Needs some reformation though (painting...), and maybe extra care about mold (carpets and walls).

We stayed here during a quick weekend getaway and I couldn't be happier with the incredible customer service we received. First the hotel as a whole: it's old...shabby in some areas and could definitely use a good cleaning as there was dust and a musty smell everywhere. It's a very very old building so that's to be expected. If that... More

This is a great hotel if you are looking for a classic New Orleans experience. The building is old, the elevator is (charmingly?) creepy. But we loved it! The beds and sheets were very comfortable and I slept very well. The air conditioner was a window unit, which could be noisy, but I like white noise when I sleep so... More

As everyone mentions it is an old building and is rather worn around the edges but it was a perfect place for my boyfriend and I to stay for 4 nights on our first visit to New Orleans. I loved this place! The location is perfect, quiet (but not dodgy quiet) residential street in the french quarter just minutes walk... More

Let me start by saying nothing about this place is 5 star if that's what you are looking for stay on Canal St. We have been staying here for 4 years now going two or three times a year and we won't stay anywhere else, we just got home from there celebrating my daughter's birthday Warren who's amazing by the...
