We spent three nights here and found the location to be perfect! Being able to walk around the French Quarter and being able to pop back to your air conditioned room to get out of the crazy humidity was great.
You're literally 5 minutes from Frenchmen which was exactly what we hoped New Orleans would be, great music (both in the bars and on the streets) great food and great drinks.
The staff were extremely helpful and gave us some brilliant recommendations for dinner and nights out off the beaten track.
The room itself will be a disappointment to those expecting a modern Hilton style room but the Convento is perfectly clean and has everything you need including bags of character (often lacking in the aforementioned Hilton rooms).
Finally the free parking was an absolute winner and although its a 5 minute walk once your car is parked up you can forget about it til you leave. From what I gathered during my hotel research in NEw Orleans parking is either non existent or horrendously expensive. Given how much time you're going to be spending in your room (not a lot) in such a cool city, I'd recommend booking here and using the money you save in parking fees on oysters and cocktails!
