“New Orleans Quiet Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2006

Hotel de la Monaie is part of the old Federal mint located on the edge of the French Quarter in New Orleans. It's a small hotel, but the suites (yes, suites, not rooms) are impressive and the rates are right in line with the rest of the French Quarter (better actually when you consider that you are getting a suite for the same money other places charge for a room). The hotel was not damaged in any way during Hurricane Katrina and has been re-opened for business since late November 2005.
The location is ideal. You may participate in as much or as little of the French Quarter as you want. And, at the end of the evening, it's a quiet retreat where the over-zealous party go-er can get plenty of sleep.
The staff is outstanding. During Katrina, the concierge (Susan Doucette)oversaw the safety of the staff (most of whom lost their homes in the 9th Ward and evacuated to the Hotel)and the safety of the few foolish out-of-towners who decided to "ride out the storm" without realizing that they were putting others in harms way -- not just themselves.

I've stayed at de la Monnaie many times and enjoy it each time. The staff is constantly looking for ways to improve the already good facility. It's so nice to find new adventures in the neighborhood. Like jazz, good ecclectic food, art studios, flea markets, antiques, people watching? All are found in abundance a short walk away.

I just got back from New Orleans and this Hotel was great. Be careful, you may have a new addition in 9 months after staying here..

I have been to New Orleans many times, but my May 2004 visit was special because I stayed at Hotel de la Monnaie. What a treasure! The streetcar lines start across the street. The Farmer's Market is across the street. Bourbon Street and other attractions are an easy walk. Even my hard-to-please husband was without complaint about the wonderful Hotel de la Monnaie. Recommend it highly.

Nice place, close to Bourbon Street, shops, river, etc. without the noise. Close to several good restuarants, and the French Market.

Fantastic location! Our family has stayed twice here & has come away delighted each time. It's across the street from the Farmers Market, old Mint (now a museum), & the Riverwalk, & around the corner from a great jazz bar. 2 blocks to the French Quarter. Very friendly & responsive staff, a small kitchen for those saving bucks by doing some cooking, an open air courtyard with a small wading pool. Get your food from the Market or 2 blocks away at a grocery store.Excellent price for a suite!
