I saw pictures and it looked cute , the exterior is but interior is ridiculously small for the price. I am kind of a hotel snob and I feel like this one just doesn't meet the standards of a good hotel. Location is awesome! BUT rooms are tiny and interior is blaaaaaah. I feel like an airbnb would be nicer... More

I stayed here for two days on vacation. It was very nice. Right in the heart of the French quarter and you could walk to alot places if you aren't lazy. Our room was newly renovated so it was lovely. Nice and clean and just the perfect size for two. We would definitely stay here again. The staff was very... More

Me and husband stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to New Orleans. The hotel is situated in a fantastic location smack bang in the middle of the French Quarter. The room although definitely the smallest I've ever stayed in was cleaned daily and the bed was soo comfortable. As others have said there are no lifts in this... More

I had extensively reviewed this hotel prior to my booking, so I was not surprised by anything. First let me review my perception of the good things. The best thing about this hotel? Definitely LOCATION!! I absolutely loved its close proximity to the french market, bourbon st, the LaLaurie house, the riverfront street car, and the art galleries/shops on royal... More

We booked this hotel in late Feb. 2015. Three rooms, as my two sons and their wifes came on the trip. My travel agent booked it for us, because I couldn't locate a hotel in the French quarter. She reserved a more expensive room on the bottom floor (no elevator) for my me and my wife. We booked cheaper rooms... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating and the location is central to many attractions. Our room was nice, seemed clean, but small with little counter space. We did have an in-room mini-fridge we weren't expecting, however. Our co-travelers were not satisfied with their room at all and actually spotted a roach. I'm used to staying in older, authentic buildings. There... More

Unique, quirky little place set around an inner courtyard. We were right at the top of the building in the attic space up about 5 flights of stairs (no lift) so grateful for the bellboy. Room was large and airy with a tiny wardrobe space and unfortunately no view. Parking just around the corner in the inside of a derelict... More

Right in the middle of everything! Easy walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. I had a small room off of the courtyard which was clean and comfortable, but noisy due to folks hanging out in the courtyard and walking up the steps. Breakfast was very basic...just coffee and some pastries. No coffee in the rooms. Great staff. Very... More
