My friend and I decided to spend a long weekend in New Orleans to catch up. We chose this hotel because of it's good reviews here, it's affordable price, and it's amazing location. We arrived on a Friday morning and we able to store our bags while we wandered around town.
We had a double room with a window, but no balcony. It over looked the street and we had a great view of the Cathedral. We were able to walk EVERYWHERE we wanted to go in the city from here. The nice part is that it's so central to all the stores, restaurants, tours, Jackson square, etc. but it's not noisy or crazy at all. Our room was beautiful, lots of old style charm (although I'm fairly convinced it's haunted, I've heard rumors).
They provided breakfast each day, but we usually chose to go to Cafe Du Monde instead. For the value, you can't find a better hotel in town. I would go back in a heart beat.
