“"Back when" Charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

Great location right in the french quarter. Very cool atmosphere. Our room had a faint odor when we first walked in but didn't notice it after awhile. Toilet/tub room very small. Bed was comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Church bells at around 7am woke me up but fell right back to sleep no problem. Valet parking was a plus-cost was $28 for the one night we stayed. If you don't want housekeeping to wake you be sure to put your "do not disturb" sign out when you go to bed. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in a great location! Near the corner of Jackson Square and just a short walk away from beignets and cafe au lait!
Our only real complaint is that the floors are very thin. The room above us had four kids in it that might possibly have been training for Olympic-class gymnastics! We heard every thump and bump from them...some of the thumps shook the walls.
The breakfast is very average. Coffee, juice, and pastries only. We preferred to make the short walk to Cafe DuMonde instead.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a room on the top floor.

Stayed here from 8 nov for 4 nights, charming hotel in french quarters, bedroom faced into street, was not noisey, it was clean and was bigger then expected with big bed which my other half was delighted with!! Staff were friendly, helpful and unintrusive. Rear garden court yard and pool was really nice and then perfect place to take your continental breakfast( which was adequate) out to and enjoy with the daily newspaper. Very central, a good base to explore the city. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Re requested room with window.

The hotel was nice and easy to find and park. We had paid for a deluxe room, but you could either end up with a queen or king sized bed and the view could either be courtyard or overlooking the street. We had requested a king with a courtyard view, and both were accommodated. The courtyard was lovely, the pool looked nice but it was too chilly to swim this time of year. The room served its purpose, it was nice and very much resembled photos we had seen. It was clean but looked like it needed a good detailed cleaning. We stayed in room 322.
The bed however, as grateful as we were of the king size, the mattress was very springy and uncomfortable; it hurt our lower backs and hips. We had looked around for the thermostat to control the temperature, but wasn’t able to find one until our last night there, it was hidden behind a door that is left open and separates the bedroom from the vanity area. The staff were super nice and very helpful, especially the parking attendants when my husband had left his sunglasses, then his beanie in the car, they were happy to go and retrieve them both times. The breakfast is as other people have said, consists of juice, coffee, tea, fruit, croissants, muffins, and a few other pastries. Wasn’t spectacular, but again, was enough to start the day until lunch, one less meal to buy.
The location is definitely what you pay for here, as within some 15 steps from the front door you are in Jackson Square. One block away you can enjoy some café au lait and beignets at Café du Monde. Two blocks the other way is Bourbon Street, so after a night out, you don’t have to walk far. On the downside, we were treated to the St. Louis cathedral bells every morning, particularly between 7 and 7:30. I would consider staying here again, as I could live with the bells, but would need a better mattress so I could get a good night’s sleep before the cathedral wake up call.

I totally enjoyed my stay at this hotel...service was wonderful, breakfast pasteries were perfect ..little hint if you want your pastry warmed just ask the attendant she will happily warm it in the micro...makes a big difference). The location to all things French Quarter was dynomite yet despite the morning trash trucks it was relatively quiet for sleeping and I had a streetside room with Balcony. Each room is a different layout and since we had several rooms booked for our group I was able to check out the diversity. My only wish was that all upper floor rooms had elevator accessability..but the stairs were fine. My room 229 was just up stairs from the front desk and as a single woman felt very safe. We definitely will stay again at this gem of a property.

Room Tip: There is a 3rd floor (elevator access) which one of our group moved to and sounded like it's a...

I got a great deal for a 2 night stay at this old New Orleans hotel. It is less than a block from Jackson Square. It is touted as the most haunted hotel in New Orleans...the ghost tour stopped right in front of our balcony. Disregard the 'date of stay' in this review, my stay was a couple of years ago, but at that time they had the best croissants brought in the morning by a local bakery for the continental breakfast. Of course, Cafe Dumond is only about one block away for an early morning stroll for beignets and cafe au lait. We loved our balcony suite. We had breakfast there each morning and watched the early morning happenings on St. Ann St. We were walking back to the hotel one night and passed Jackson Square, which evidently is locked up for the nights, there were at least 30+ cats in there! It was amazing. They all knew where the safe place to sleep at night :) I have recommended this hotel to friends and they now say its the place to stay when visiting the city.

The hotel is located right in the center of tourist area - two blocks from Cafe D'Monde, 1/2 a block from Jackson Square, and 2 blocks from Bourbon Street. The rooms are clean, and the staff was helpful...... make that the day staff, the night staff on two occasions were useless - but the day staff turned the situations around so there was no problem! I would definately stay there again!!!!!
