This was the most disgusting place I have ever been in. It was nothing like described or the photos shown on the web. There were dead bugs everywhere including the beds! Hundreds of bugs in the hallways and on the furniture. The yard had garbage cans overflowing and a grocery cart by the front door full of bags of trash.... More

I stayed at St vincent Guess house during the Essence Jazz Festival. My room look exactly like the pictures that are advertised. The staff were very nice and helpful. My first time in New Orleans and I was surprised about how small the streets were. The gh is withthin walking distance of the bus and the 11 magazine street lets... More

We went online to view this hotel that we found at a reasonable price. The picture showed a wicker bedroom set that looked adequate for the price. The dining room showed a wicker dining room setting. They showed a manicured landscape. Upon arrival we were in shock to find a terrible dump. It was obvious the hotel had not been... More

I'm not too picky when it comes to hotels, motels, and B +B's. I've stayed in former insane assylums, in homes owned by people hostel to Americans, and am always prepared with my own pillows and shampoo because hotel's aren't likely to have the best of either. This place, however, really has me peeved... not just because our shower curtain... More

I stayed there while I was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. The area that it is in seems kind of shady, but after being there a few days we realized it was not that bad. We would usually walk to the French Quarter during the daytime and get a cab back, which is only a couple of bucks.... More

I stayed here for a week and found the staff to be courteous, pleasant and helpful. This is budget accommodation, but it is charming and clean, the hot water is hot, the pool is clean, the breakfasts are good, the bus and St. Charles trolley are close at hand and there is an excellent coffee shop across the street. The... More

We found the St. Vincent's Hotel on the web, and decided that we would try something other than a sterile hotel. Were we glad we did! The St. Vincent's is a renovated orphanage on Magazine Street on the edge of the Garden District. It is an enormous red brick rambling building with 72 rooms, no two alike! Renovation is coming...

I have to agree with the writer of 'was just fine". I also have no idea where the hysterical reviews are coming from. I guess if they want sanitary spotless rooms they should book the Hyatt. However if you want good rooms and a friendly staff then St. Vincents the place to be. They were busy painting and cleaning while... More

We arrived after over 7 hrs. of driving to learn that the price had gone up by $10.00 per night, and the deposit had gone up by over $100.00; the booking clerk from God knows where had already applied $50.00 to our credit card for the deposit. With Thanksgiving football fans filling up other places and two tired and hungry... More
