We have been visiting New Orleans for the past 21 yrs; of that time, 19 stays at the Place d'Armes; and generally in the same room with the balcony overlooking St. Ann Street and across from the Cathedral. Although their prices have risen to stay in line with the economy, and a few changes have been made, this IS the hotel for the French Quarter. The lack of a bar and restaurant gives the guest the opportunity to visit so many places in this stunning city. Arriving one finds Chris at the garage to take your car, Robert to take your bags to your room, and Ms. Dionne at the front desk. And if you are very lucky, you may find Lyn Casteneda, the manager of the hotel too. We've known Lyn for many yrs and have seen her rise from handling front desk duties to the managerial position, for which she is very capable and well suited.. The room we stay in is a king-sized room with a balcony that prompts you to sit, whether summer or winter. My only complaint is that Community Coffee is no longer available in the room; instead another brand is supplied and the taste is abysmal. But ... Going down to the breakfast room in the morning, one finds good coffee and muffins and croissants with the morning paper too. I could say more re the layout of the room and its furnishings, but this has been said already. Do ck out the art work by Audobon; it's delightful.
And down the street is the Café du Monde, an establishment that has been in operation for well over 150 years; across the street the Cathedral and Jackson Square, and heading slightly north for one half block, is Royal Street, which is delightfully set with many antique shops. And next year, we will be back! God willing and the creek don't rise!!
