I will say that this is not in the French quarters and is a few blocks walk away. My brother and I found this acceptable for our stay and I was able to park my car on the street for free. The rooms are dated and decorated in a quaint style that makes this place reminiscent of an old family... More

I stayed here with a group tour that I booked to travel across the country. This hotel was included so it wasn't through choice but it was decent. I was in what was described as a 'dorm style' room, but it turned out to be two double beds in separate parts of the room, closed off via a curtain... Massive... More

I recently stayed here for the weekend. The hotel staff is all very nice. The breakfast is simple. The DIY waffle station is a nice touch. The location is great. It's just far enough away yet not too far from everything. I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for something a bit different. Keep in mind... The Marriot this... More

I would echo almost everything that jkelly04 wrote. Though our room was small (two double beds) - whereas he said the room was large, so he might have been in another part of the hotel. Good price, great location! (Maybe the best in all of New Orleans?) A short walk to Frenchmen Street. Nice staff. Small and really not very... More

First of all, you need to have reasonable expectations when you stay here. The location is perfect; two blocks from Frenchmen Street, best music scene in the Big Easy, in the up-and-coming Marigny residential district, with its quirky and colorful architecture. The staff are all friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and beautifully furnished, and the courtyard (where a... More

I stayed at the hotel in June 2014. The staff did not take care of my sink problem that appeared to be stopped up with food until 2 days after I reported it. He seemed more concerned with his dog rather helping me with my sink and he was not pleasant at all. I felt like I was bothering him.... More

I was nervous about booking this place for our friend's weekend getaway to NOLA. When we arrived, the staff was really friendly and showed us how to get to our room, where to eat breakfast and how to use the gates. The rooms were old but charming. It had an old fashioned bathtub, air conditioner on the window that kept... More

Room rate....$99 on a Friday night. My expectations weren't very high, but it was all that was available. I was actually very pleased when the door was opened. Our room had a twin, queen & king bed. A separate living room tastefully furnished. A nice sized kitchen with all the amenities. Fridge, microwave, full size gas stove & double sinks.... More
