This quaint hotel, part of which dates back to the 1800's, is ideally located for all kinds of activities in New Orleans. It's two and a half short blocks from the French Quarter (without the noise), Southwest Rep Theatre and the Street Cars, around the corner from the huge Harrah's Casino and a couple of blocks from the Riverwalk Street...

We can't understand the previous reviews. We've stayed in New Orleans many times and are most impressed with de L'eau Vive. Derrick, a wonderful staff member met us at the curb and helped us with our bags as well as helped my husband with his parking spot. Our suite was very spacious and wonderfully decorated New Orleans style. The pool... More

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.
