We went for SuperBowl and had a great time! The hotel itself is a great location, halfway between Decatur and Bourbon, across from the French Market and other awesome restaurants. The hotel is charming. The room we stayed was the size of a bedroom, one queen size bed and one day bed. Perfect for 3 people. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room was clean. Three women, with luggage, clothes and makeup fit ok in the room, not a TON of space but it worked for 3 nights. They have an ice machine but we couldn't find a soda machine. The courtyard is very nice. If you are looking for top notch accomadations, I wouldn't reccommend this as it is very 'quaint'. We loved it for it's charm and location, cleanliness and they fixed our toilet within minutes of asking. The front desk staff was very nice.
