If you are looking for pristine rooms and staff in pressed uniforms, then call the Marriott. If you are looking for a place with character and a staff that gets to know you, then St. Vincent's is your place. This is the third trip for a group that I book each year during spring break. We were looking for a... More

HUGE COCKROACHES - this should say it all. We decided to try St Vincent because of its price and the fact that its location is very convenient - 20 minute walk (not 10 minutes) to the French Quarter and 15 minute to the Garden district. The area is a bit shady but not too bad. The house itself has character... More

Don't ever stay in that crack house!!! Its so nasty and drunks walk the streets. You aren't safe at night! Me and my parents were going to stay there during the Bayou Classic in 06. But its so ugly and old. Don't believe the internet pictures! Its looks like a really old haunted house. The pool is nasty not very... More

My friend waited until the last minute to book a room for us and that's how we ended up in this horrible place. First, I was worried with the appearance of the building (dirty front, broken flower pots etc.). I'll skip the lobby being dirty... and dirty hallways...and the live in residents. The room was horrible, as soon as we... More

Frantic, with no other place to go, our group of 22 volunteers was instantly accomidated by St. Vincent's and we solidified reservations on the same day. The small kitchen provided a large enough space for all the students to comfortably eat - with privacy because the kitchen was bolted by lock and key :-). the rooms were more than we... More

This was our 2nd year to stay at St. Vincent's Guest house for spring break. Most of the rooms seem like they are pretty nice, but in comparison there are a few that are others that are pretty bad, so I can see how the reviews on this site can be so mixed. The secret to a good stay is... More

I'm sure there are many travelers who want and expect perfection in their hotel accommodations. I say to those folks, Don't stay at St Vincent's! What you will find at St Vincent's is an old, historical building staffed by friendly, caring staff. The rooms that we have experienced are somewhat outdated, but clean and comfortable. We've stayed at St Vincent's... More

When I went to this hotel I was alarmed about the reviews on line. When I got there, I was very pleasantly surprised. THis is not a major hotel with cable room service etc. I did not expect this. I did get a friendly staff, a clean room, a fine mattress, and a terrific location for the price. THe building... More

I have been staying at St. Vincents for several years. I have stayed in some great rooms and some not so great rooms. Bottom line is that it is a great old place that really has a lot of character and alot of people expect a resort when they stay there. The owner Peter has done a lot of post... More

I made reservations with the place by calling them directly using the number from the internet page several months prior to an accident that put me on a walker. I started calling Dec. 29, 2007 to try to cancel reservation. I have stayed there a couple of times prior to 2007. The phone number I used from the internet was... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
