I prefer properties just outside the Quarter when I stay in New Orleans - so I can escape to an oasis outside of the din of the party. This hotel met and exceeded my expectations.
My oversized room had been recently updated and was very well appointed.
It's a short 2-block walk to Bourbon St, very well-lit, and safe. There's always a doorman in front to help. The St. Charles streetcar line is steps away.
The staff made my stay a delight. LaTrenda at the front desk is the best!
