Stayed July 8-15 2015 in room 22. Great room size with 2 generous size closets and an armoire. Sliding window to private balcony that has a table and 2 chairs was really cool. Air conditioning was good since it was scorching that week. Fridge in room was extra cold. The bed was super comfortable. Balcony faces Lafitte Blacksmith Bar but... More

Well, let's start with the positive.....this location is great. It's just at one end of the really busy section of Bourbon Street. Right across the street is Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop (Great Hurricanes but VERY strong). The house is pretty and our room was just fine. The linens were nice, the mattress comfortable. The desk employees were helpful in recommending restaurants... More

The rooms are spacious and the staff friendly. The location can not be beat for being close to everything in the French Quarter, yet out of the loud crazy noise zone. Free continental breakfast. There are both private and community balconies. The James and Doziers June July 22 and 23rd

The rooms are gorgeous, it was full of art and the room has a very homey, calm feel to it. The patio area seemed nice to sit and just relax. Also I love all of the art work everywhere, it is in the hallways, in the rooms and downstairs area. The location is very convenient to walk down to bourbon... More

My husband and I don't plan on staying there again nor recommend anyone else stay there either. However we do have the following funny memories of our stay there: 1. The gentleman at the front desk was ever so kind but a bit odd as if hospitality isn't really his forte. 2. As we walked thru the hallway & attempted... More

My fiancé and I booked this at the last minute for a great price of $160 for a Friday night trip. We called the hotel after booking and were told that our room would be ready and that we could check in early, awesome! We arrived around 1pm to find the front desk clerk, George, very friendly and helpful. We... More

Check-in was fast and easy, the staff was very friendly and answered all our questions! Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the stay... Room #31 was great, had the balcony on Bourbon, clean and spacious!! This room also has the 2nd bedroom with queen bed. Only downfall was small bathroom, but an easy trade-off for the history in the... More

Beautiful place right on Bourbon Street, but still quiet and secluded enough to relax. I stayed with my son and his girlfriend. We loved sipping our coffee in the courtyard, or on the balcony off of the kitchen in the mornings.The staff was very gracious and helpful. I don't think I'll ever stay anywhere else!

Loved the location way down Bourbon - great proximity to Jackson Square, Frenchman, and City Park. We'll pick a different room next time (we were on the first floor of the mansion, lots of foot traffic), but top notch place. Cool little kitchen with quick bites of food/coffee and access to balcony seating/view.
