Me and my wife stayed here for a weekend in July. This place is awesome. It is half a block off Bourbon Street. The room had a balcony over the street and a great feel to the room. No its not a hotel so don't expect current updated accommodations... This is a guest house w the feel of old French... More

I do love New Orleans and this was my first time there... Feb 15 - 18th - All Star Weekend! Lets start from the beginning. I spoke with Clayton - the owner and he was very helpful. During reservations online he told me to list the name of the room I wanted on the reservations page. When booking online it... More

Let me start off with this: there was no smoke detector in my accommodations (suite). Instead there was a wall mounting plate with a dangling wire, where a detector HAD BEEN. I consider this to be a very worrisome code violation and safety issue - wouldn't you? I took a photo and will post it here. If this is the... More

I stayed at the Biscuit Palace from April 9th to the 18th. As soon as I stepped into the suite, I was in the Royal suite on the 2nd floor, I felt "home". I love New Orleans, been 7 times in 6 years. If I had my way, I'd be a part-time local. The suite was basically an apartment, with... More

My husband and I stayed here last year and while the building is very cool and Clayton is a doll this place really needs an update on some essentials. We are not difficult people, but when certain common resources are not adequate it is very upsetting. We did not have any water coming out of our shower for pretty much... More

I stayed in the Chartres Mini Suite with the last reviewer (DarrellM77) April 8th - 14th and would like to add my own views. The room opened out into the courtyard and you had to go up one flight of stairs to a courtyard balcony for access. Whoever decorated the room must have had an “artistic” streak with some interesting... More

The Biscuit Palace isn't glamorous but it does have a lot of character and convenience going for it. Location is superb for the French Quarter nestled between the bustle of Bourbon St and more up market Royal it was easy to get to everywhere in a short walk and even Frenchmen St was only ten minutes away. You go in... More

We've been coming here for 30 years. Haven't been here for 10 years. This time our room was filthy. Room was musty, floor was dirty(including someone's sock, toilet seat was falling off, microwave did't work, not enough working lights. Stairway to second floor (22 steps) has many safety issues including missing spindles on a very rickety railing. Very low price... More

Biscuit Palace is a wonderful treasure. If you are looking for charm, personality, great location and affordability this is for you. If you expect five star service and pristine amenities, this isn't that place. But in exchange you are left with a memorable experience you can't find anywhere else. You are located just off of Bourbon Street but don't be... More
