My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Convento for 3 days and nights and it was wonderful! The hotel is old, as the city, and feels like it could be your grandmothers home, as in homey, warm and comfortable. The staff was great and Warren and Triskell both took good care of us! On the first day Warren... More

Everything was wonderful! The view was beautiful. The staff was more than helpful, very knowlagable, and took the time to answer all of our questions. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will stay there again on my next trip.

Located in the French Quarter two blocks from French Market, and two blocks from Bourbon a Street, this hotel is a great value. They have a complementary parking lot a few blocks away, but if you are patient you might find a space on the street in front of the hotel. Rooms are small and bathrooms are tiny. Ours had... More

Found this place on the internet looking for a bit cheaper in the French Quarter. They have average rooms with few amenities but the building itself and its history are well worth it. Close to both Bourbon Street and Decatur Street it's the perfect location to adventure from. Staff is helpful and friendly, like everyone in NOLA, and the rooms... More

We had out of town guests and decided on an impromptu trip to the French Quarter. I came across this hotel on this site and after reading the many favorable reviews we decided to give it a try for one night. It did not disappoint! The place is full of charm and character, was very clean and comfortable and the... More

I knew this place was different when we arrived four hours early for our check in completely wore out and tired and was treated with open arms and was checked into our room in about an hour. Our room was clean and quiet and everything I hoped a guesthouse would be. Oh yeah the place is haunted. But, it's a... More

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

This place is amazing. Booked a balcony room and loved the balcony. The beds are comfortable and the rooms nice. The staff is very helpful. Courtyard is nice. 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
