“Best location in New Orleans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Frenchmen St, the Quarter, the French Market, riverfront, streetcar, and a straight shot out Esplanade to City Park and fairgrounds street parking. We found the garage often full but street parking is available in the Faubourg Marigny, a rapidly hipsterifying neighborhood bordered by Frenchmen St.. Surprisingly quiet for its location. Pleasant verandah accessible from the 2nd floor.

Room Tip: The units ending in 13 are the weirdest layout of a condo (though oddly functional) you will ever se...

Friendly and helpful staff, great location, free parking, more than adequate kitchenette, even a small swimming pool (did not use). Inexpensive restaurants and grocery and wine stores within easy walking distance. Adjacent to French Quarter and a stone's throw from the jazz venues on Frenchman Street. 1/2 block from streetcar stop and French market. It is somewhat dated and the AC was noisy, but for the price, it can't be beat.

Nothing overly amazing about this hotel. Rooms were a tad on the outdated side, but I believe that is the "vibe" the hotel is striving for. Free parking was a nice plus, but the main thing about this hotel...LOCATION!!!

1/2 block from the trolley station, which will take you ALL over the city. 1 block from the flea market. 1 block from Frenchmen Street, TONS of killer restaurants and great jazz bars. Nothing insanely wild, but def a great chill place to have some drinks, relax, and hear some great jazz. Especially great if you are not into the whole clubbing scene.

Kitchen was standard, jacuzzi tub in bathroom, pool was actually quite interesting...It was located on 2nd floor, with a cool fountain in it with palm trees all around it. But there was no roof or anything, so was actually pretty cool hanging out in there at night.

Only negative I will throw out there, we went with my wife's parents, so naturally they had the bedroom and we were on the sofa sleeper. Thing was not what most would consider comfy, but we made it.

Stop worrying and book this hotel, you will not be let down!!

Within walking distance of the French Quarter. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. It's an older hotel, but the room was very clean. It had a jacuzzi tub, two tv's and a small kitchen. Both the bed and sofa bed were comfortable.The air conditioner worked great. There is a trolley station across the street. We did not have any trouble with parking or hot water. We will stay here again!!

Located at the river's end on beautiful Esplanade Avenue, you are right across the street from the old U.S. Mint and Farmer's Market/old Slave Market, and to the left is the Red Trolley (over the wall) that you can take all the way to Harrah's or stop in-between. (The Red Trolley is not the same as the streetcar.)
(Exact change $1.25 good for 2 hours.)
To your right looking towards Esplanade is Frenchman Street (walk over to the Fire Station and you'll see it).. cool restaurants and great night music!
If you get tired, retreat to the large balcony overlooking Esplanade Avenue and enjoy a berverage. Easy to meet other friendly travelers there.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 15 are stunning due to a glass wall overlooking the courtyard. The front bedroom win...

This is hotel is perfectly located in the French Quarter. It is within walking distance to everything that you want to do in the area but far enough so that it is relatively quiet. It's an older hotel but quite charming.

We had the best stay at Hotel de la Monnaie! It is close enough to the French Quarter, yet removed enough to be peaceful! Close to Frenchman Street and the French Market.

The room was a one bedroom with a living room, and galley style kitchen. Perfect for morning coffee and cereal.

The balconies overlooking the courtyard an wading pool were very nice, and gave my husband a place to smoke conveniently outside.

The staff, especially Camille, was very helpful, especially arranging a bus tour for us.

We will definitely stay here again if we return to NOLA!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 5th floor, so we had a great view of the city, and even the river!
