My girlfriend and I stayed in this wonderful hotel for one night. It is situated near the old Ursuline monastary and in a very quit street. We had a balcony room which gave us a beautiful view on the monastary. Our room was large, beauiful and very clean. It was really a pleasure to chill in the room or the (large!) blacony. The atmosphere in the hotel is very quit and peaceful . The staff (Barbara in particular) is extremely helpful and welcoming. Yes, this place almost feels like home! On top op that, prices and policy regarding check in and check out are very reasonable. Really, there is no better place to stay in New Orleans than this hotel!
