Beautiful rooms. Get one with a balcony. We walked from the Hotel to all the must see tourist spots. Staff is very friendly. I live in an old home so the old building noises didn't bother me. The fountain on the patio is quite picturesque. I will now be staying here exclusively until I permanently move to NoLa.

Very close to Bourbon st but just far enough away that its quiet at night, It is also close to the French Martket which made the stay unforgettable. Best location, great prices and very comfortable. Plan to stay more than one night.

I stayed here one night before going to one of the bigger chain hotels for a conference. What a nice surprise... From the outside it does not look like much. However, my room was charming! High ceiling, brick walls, wood floors. It was simply charming. It was quiet at night. I got a great night's sleep. The bed, linens and... More

We tried this Hotel because we wanted to spend a couple of nights after a cruise. We wanted to be in the quarter since we had flown. The staff was super helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious. There are no many places you can get this large a room for this price. The pool was a lovely retreat.... More

The one bedroom was small but very cute and cozy. We had a room outside the courtyard. Loved the all brick walls. Just a block from Bourbon but far enough down from all the noise at night. Never felt unsafe walking around in the middle of the night. A few blocks from all other touristy spots. The staff was friendly... More

This hotel is quite amazing admittedly we are in a small room with no windows that we can see out of. But the location and staff cannot be beaten. We are one block from Bourbon and three blocks from the Frenchman St. With none of the noise. I would especially like to thank Donald and Michelle at reception they help... More

We were really pleased with our stay here. The staff were good and the location was terrific, close enough to the hustle and bustle but a nice calm stroll home in the evening. The rooms are quite small and if you are a "plus sized" person you may struggle with the size of the shower. Actually, my wife is quite... More

I have never written a review on Trip Advisor before but this hotel was so bad I wanted to alert other potential guests. We were charged $500 a night for a hotel room that had: - cracked glass in the window - hot water in the toilet (we figured that out because the toilet seat was constantly wet!) - 2... More

Our stay started off very rocky but the staff fixed the issue at hand which made me happy in the end. We drove from Canada to New Orleans and when we arrived all we wanted to do was get settled and go check out the French Quarter. We checked in and got to our room and it was above a... More
