Loved staying here last weekend. Perfect location! You are right there in the French Quarter, but it is on a quiet street. Had breakfast in the cute bar area. I had delicious banana crepes. Lots of celebrities, including Paul McCartney, have stayed here over the years. Friendly and helpful staff. We would def stay here again when we visit New... More

As the saying goes "location is everything". First trip to New Orleans and took my 21-year old son so wanted full access to the heart of the French Quarter. However, while much of the FQ never sleeps, both my son and I wanted to and it was my son that said this is the perfect location. 5 minute walk to... More

What a great location, within walking distance of Jackson Square! Very comfortable (king) bed, didn't miss the usual coffee-maker in the room since there was delicious coffee downstairs. Nice conversations during happy hour that even included the 90-year-old owner, who was so sweet! The staff there seem very loyal to the owner and dedicated to excellent service. We will definitely...

Stayed here for a few nights. The quiet part of the French quarter but easy walking distance to all the delights of the area. Staff is devoted. It really matters what room you get (so ask a lot of questions)--some are big and comfy, some are small and awkward...it's an old renovated space. Clean and historic. But no coffee in... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, the reception staff were very helpful and friendly and the general atmosphere of the hotel was very good, I liked it's old world charm, the location is great because you can walk to the busy areas but it's far enough away that you're not bothered by the loud music in Bourbon street. I would... More

We loved this hotel and felt like we were back in the early 1800's/1900's. Don't expect a posh 5 star hotel, but take in the history and being part of what makes New Orleans so intriguing. I'm usually one to stay at a Hyatt, but for this trip, the hotel was perfect along with with its location. We upgraded to... More

Visiting for business with family, I have enjoyed the charm, kindness and affordability of this French Quarter hotel. The staff are VERY knowledgable and supportive of your questions and the community. Wonderful experience. And having a real key to open my room and an iron balcony is gorgeous historic touches!

I found this hotel in my desperate attempt to escape from the hotel in the hood I had originally booked. This hotel has the classic look that one thinks of when they think of New Orleans. It had a little bit of a musty smell in the lobby, but it was built in 1845, so that's understandable. The room was... More

On our Florida to New Orleans tour we chose this hotel because it is in the French Quarter, because it is located in a historic building and because there is a supervised courtyard where you can park your car. We were not disappointed about our choice. Good hotel, really good location, friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms with a "historic... More
