Lovely Boutique Hotel in the French Quarter. Room was very nice. Comfortable bed. The balcony overlooking the street and the views of the other historic buildings was nice. This street was mostly quiet. Parking nearby and within walking distance of everything in the French Quarter. Nice quiet and cozy courtyard.

Located in the french quarter..with all that entails. The hotel itself was very noisy. Every sound echoes throughout this old, 3 story structure. The staff member responsible for breakfast on Sunday seemed to enjoy walking back and forth at 5:30 in the morning in what seemed to be tap shoes. The room was clean but small which is to be...

Hotel is nice, cute, on a quiet street but still safe and close to all the french quarter action. No parking but three lots on the same block to park at for $40/day. Small free breakfast. No elevator. Rooms are the furthest thing from soundproof that I've ever experienced.

Location almost right in the middle of the Quarter so easy to walk to everything. Arrived around 1:15am on Christmas Eve and was greeted with a warm welcome and smile. Booked a courtyard balcony room but there was an issue when I got into the room so I was moved to a French Quarter balcony room for the night and... More

This was a perfect hotel for us, it had old Nola style with all the modern touches. The location is perfect, just far enough away from the melee but close enough if you want some. ;) It's also great having Napoleon House right on the corner! Easy access to Decatur and Jackson Square and the French Market. We chose a... More

Location is fantastic. Close to bourbon street but far away enough so that it's quiet at night. Rooms are beautiful how ever we had issues with the hot water. No hot water for 2 days but I know they had it fixed. Overall we loved the hotel and will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I booked 1 night here to have a small getaway from the north side of Lake Pontchartrain and enjoy the Quarter. The room was small(that was to be expected) but very clean and neat. We booked a balcony with a "view". We could see the Cathedral, but the left side of it. Still a cool view though.... More

We stayed in Hotel. Ste. Helene four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a small boutique hotel, not fancy but full of character and so close to everything in the French quarter. Spacious, clean room with comfortable bed and nice amenities. Continental breakfast was just fine and coffee was available all the time which was nice. I have to... More

The hotel was just okay, but I booked and paid for a suite, and my room was a small, single-room space. The suite I booked was next door, but they gave it to another guest. With the hotel being "just okay" to begin with, feeling like I was conned by the staff makes it one to avoid. When I asked,... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
