We have stayed here several times. Each apartment is decorated with different version of nautical theme and with a fully equipped kitchen, sitting room, flat screen TV, WiFi and very comfortable bedrooms. The gardens behind the building are huge and private for reading and sunbathing by day especailly lovely at night and would be a great event venue.The owner is... More

My boyfriend and I had a delightful three-day stay at this hotel. The location was perfect, with easy access to the French Quarter but without the craziness. It features a lovely back yard, perfect for hanging out with a glass of wine after a day of fun. The next time we are back in New Orleans, we will definitely stay... More

My husband and I stayed the first weekend in October to celebrate our Anniversary and it was great. This was the first time we had ever experiened staying in a condo-like hotel and we were very nervous at first but it turned out to be one our best trips to NOLA. Barbara was a wonderful hostess and made us feel... More

Eight of us converged on NOLA to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We went to college together and Animal House -- the movie -- will forever be emblazoned in our memories. We were well behaved, though. After all, we are now married, and have kids and responsible jobs. Barbara was an incredible host, putting us at ease from the moment we... More

We were very pleased with the service, and location of the Hotel Storyville. It was in a nice, historic, and very convenient part of the french quarter. I would recommend it to someone who likes privacy, less noise and tourist distractions and wants to feel as though they have their own apartment. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all...

My husband and I booked a studio room for a week, when I called to confirm, I was pleasantly surprised to find out we had been upgraded to a one bedroom! Barbara told us that she does that when the rooms are available. The whole hotel is beautiful--or I should say the house is beautiful! It was really more like... More

Quiet neighborhood within walking distance of great bars and restaurants! Cool owner; great garden in the back; unbelievable rates!! My wife and I have gone to New Orleans so many times that we don't think of ourselves as tourists (OK. I was born there and my whole fam damily is from there.) We've stayed in the quarter, in the CBD,... More

I don't think I have ever had a better hotel experience. It was beautiful, and incredibly clean! The location was ideal, and the gift bag was a nice treat. Barbara was a great host, and accomodated us so well! We were so sad to leave, and can't wait to go back!

My friends and I attend the Essence Festival every year. This year we decided to stay at the Storyville to get away from the large crowds. Best idea ever. It was a wonderful place to stay and is in a perfect location. We were able to get rest when we wanted rest and get in the mix when we wanted... More
