“Charming hotel in the French Quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This hotel has all the charm you would expect to find in the french quarter of New Orleans. The location is perfect close to all the activities and yet in a quiet enough setting to allow a restful stay. We had and interior room that was very clean and fonctionnal with enough space for two persons. The bathroom was equally clean and had a bath/shower combo that serve its purpose. The personnel was really friendly and helpful in all aspects. The included continental breakfast was a nice touch to get you started in the morning. The area for improvements are the noise level through the door which is rather high and annoying wheb you try to sleep and people circulate in the corridor. The room could also do with a fresh coat of paint. Overall a good place to stay to enjoy NOLA and the French Quarter thanks to the location, the charm and the personnel.

Location was excellent and I felt very safe there. The staff was very nice and informative. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Only downside to my stay was that I couldn't get wifi in my room, but I could get it in the hallway. Will certainly be staying at this hotel again.

Room Tip: I will ask for a room with a window next time.

My husband and I LOVE this hotel! We stay there every time we come to New Orleans, even on our honeymoon! The staff is always friendly and accommodating, the rooms are always clean and well decorated, and there is a lot of neat history about the building. It's set in the heart of the quarter, within perfect walking distance for everything! We have the valet park our vehicle and never use it until we leave! That's how convenient the location is! We always look forward to our next trip back!

Stayed in October 2012. From check in, the staff and service were great. The location CANNOT be beat. The room we had is authentic New Orleans. Great bed and bathroom, courtyard was a perfect place to relax, have a drink and make plans for the day. have been to NOLA many times over the years and it will be next to impossible to get me to stay anywhere else from now on. And if you need a great burger the next day to help, Yo Mommas is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of eating.

Stayed for a few days in mid-December. Totally worth it. Our room was quite spacious and the balcony was adorable. Lots of fun to people watch. The staff was very nice especially the bell staff and Dionne at the front desk. They were extremely helpful giving advice from everything from places to see, tours to take, places to eat and the best transportation options. The breakfast was quite nice too even though most days we ate out. Close to all the attractions. If you are looking for being out all night and sleeping in you might want to ask for an interior or courtyard room as the street cleaning crews/trash can be a bit loud but that couldn't be helped. Look forward to staying here again

Loved the whole concept. It is located in the center of town, you can walk anywhere. I hesitate to call it a hotel because it is more like a cottage. The rooms are spacious and quaint. I actually felt like I was living in a home in New Orleans. The grounds are beautiful, bring your camera. I truly hesitate to say anything negative but a traveler needs to known is that the continental breakfast is that. They serve a breakfast roll, coffee and juice. That's it! I wished it would have been expanded a little. Overall, beautiful!

Room Tip: Chose an inside garden room, best value!

First of, the hotel is beautiful. Very nice courtyard, old but nice rooms.
But all this was ruined by the downright arrogant staff (except for the parking attendants, they were very helpful and were treated very poorly by the receptionists)
No good morning, just "name?" No directions to the rooms..i wish i could remember their names, but those 2 women ruined my stay. And after i checked out I saw that they charged me 31$ too much (we arranged the stay via the Louisiana Visitor Center and just had to pay parking for the second day, not the first) so I emailed them, thinkin they probably made a mistake. But no, they said this was the right amount. I emailed back, even took the trouble to attach a bank statement on which you can see they charged too much because it was 2 days later, but to no avail. My contact was Debra McGil. It shouldn't surprise me if this was the same rude woman as the receptionist.

All in all, this is my first review because I have never had a problem with a hotel EVER!
