My husband and I have stayed at the Villa Convento numerous times. The staff is always friendly,helpful with directions and suggestions on where to eat. The location is great, can walk anywhere in French Quarter with ease, free off site parking and a wonderful bakery right across the street for breakfast or lunch. This is not your modern Hilton style hotel, with some rooms having paint/wallpaper peeling, but the rooms are always clean and that means a lot to me! I can bring my own shampoo and lotion, don't need the expensive extras!
