We paid $676 for three nights and OMG our apartment is a dump, it is dirty, out of date and nothing like the photos, they are also advertising all rooms with flat screen TV's and we have a old box TV that hardly works. The ceiling was leaking water on the floor and the cooker is so appalling we are... More

Great value for your buck. We loved the full kitchen. Convenient grocery store kiddy corner allowed us to save a ton of cash cooking breakfast in. Nice balcony overlooking street to relax on. Pool is well maintained and clean. Great location. Is within walking distance to everything.

We were pleasantly surprised at the location and accommodations. Although it's on the outside border of the French Quarter, it's an easy walk to the Streetcar stop and the French Market. The rooms had hardwood floors, granite counter tops and a full kitchen attached to a living space with a sofa bed. The queen bedroom and bathroom was about the... More

My family of four stayed here last weekend. The location is great. Music all around & not so touristy. There are also several good restaurants/bars literally across the street. However, our room smelled like a dirty litter box & the floor was filthy. I wouldn't let my kids take their shoes off until bedtime. If it had been clean, I... More

I almost didn't want to write a review and reveal my "secret place" to stay. I LOVE this place! It's not for the traveler that wants "plush, over the top" accommodations, but for a business traveler or vacation traveler, it's wonderful! I love that these are apartments, not merely hotel rooms. Full kitchens and more space than a standard hotel... More

The exterior of the property is very cute and the street is full of culture - the interior of the unit we stayed in was functional but could definitely use some major updates. The comforters were faded and the blinds were broken in the bedrooms. The couch had stains on it which creeped me out but I tried to remain... More

This was a difficult rating. The location is great if you enjoy being where the action is, but with the added benefit of having a room that is quiet enough that your sleep will not be interrupted by the music and frivolity. However, you need to not mind filth. Our first night, as we unloaded the car, my daughter and... More

We recently took a girls trip to New Orleans and could not have had more fun! This hotel was located very close to restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Every night we sat on the 2nd floor balcony and just people watched. The city just comes alive in the evening. The front desk staff was super helpful and the room was very... More

Great hotel, comfortable, clean rooms in an amazing location. Clean exterior and cute courtyard as you walk in the front, locked gates. If you are coming to New Orleans to hear music, this is the place that you want to be. The best music flows out of the many local clubs and great music is available right on the corners.... More

Our room was right next to the street and it was very hard to sleep at night with all the music going on across the street until about 4 am (no exaggeration). We did ask to be moved and they were kind enough to move us. We could still hear the music at night, but it was more tolerable and... More
