The Hotel Villa Convento was the perfect place to stay for our first visit to New Orleans. If you're looking for a slick hotel with all the bells and whistles go elsewhere. But if you're looking for a hotel with oodles of charm stay here. Close to all the action in the French Quarter but far enough away from Bourbon Street so you can get some sleep. We had room 400 which had two balconies giving a great view of the city. I'll echo the earlier comments regarding the great staff, friendly and helpful. Internet access was intermittent from our room but fine from the lobby where you can enjoy a coffee as you surf. Thanks for the great experience!
