Space is such a premium commodity in New Orleans, it was a joy to have this three bedroom time share unit to spread out in. We traded our time share week for it. We had a huge common area that included a full kitchen, dining area and living area with large picture windows. Three smaller bedrooms and two baths each... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel de L'Eau Vive from May 16-23, 2014. We were very disappointed. The accommodation was a 2 level, with very uncomfortable stairs. We were in the annex building with construction going on next door. We were awakened each morning a little before 7 AM. We had jacuzzi tubs in both bathrooms, but they... More

Okay, so it's a converted old building and one expects things like oddly placed switches, furniture and doors. There is, however, no excuse for a mattress that is completely broken down not being replaced. I ended up taking the mattress out of the sofa bad and sleeping on the floor, my back just couldn't take it. The linens were stained... More

We stayed at the Hotel de L'Eau Vive for 10 days with 2 other couples. The location is wonderful for visiting the French Quarter, the WWII museum, Emeril's or the Confederate Memorial Hall. It's in the warehouse district and just a block or two from Canal Street. We were given a three room/two bath suite. There were no windows, only... More

As others have written this hotel should not be able to be used to trade without Interval International issuing a warning. My husband and I decided to come to New Orleans on a resort point trade. The first room we were given #102 was on the 1st floor. Looks like part of the original hotel. When we first saw it... More

Stayed here after Katrina and again Nov. 2013. In Warehouse District and easy walking distance to the French Quarter. Staff was quite helpful. Experienced travelers should find L'eau Vive to be quite suitable. Would return when we can.

Last hotel room available in Nola during the week of a major medical conference. Paid $400/night. Whole hotel looks and smells unclean. Unfinished wood doors, blood stains on sheets. I checked out and walked the city till I found another option.

Traded in my Marriott timeshare for a two bedroom and 1 bath suite. It is definitely not a Marriott, and shouldn't be up to Interval International's standards, but it was the only place available for us during that time period. Overall, the location was great. We were practically across the street from Harrahs, a few blocks from the French Quarter... More
