We found the location of this hotel really convenient to everywhere we wanted to walk to in the French Quarter. And yet, it was a quiet location. I am late in getting to this review- we stayed in November 2013, Thanksgiving weekend- probably a quiet time of year as far as New Orleans goes. We had a street level room, and we were not really bothered by too much noise, just the garbage pick ups in the early morning. However, being a street level room, there was really no way of getting some light into the room without having the whole room on view from the street since the only "windows" were the doors. Beautiful and original as they were, that made the room very dark in a time of year that was somewhat gloomy anyway. If we stay here again, we will go for the upper story so we can open the room. The bed was comfy, and room decoarted nicely.
It was quite chilly when we were there, and the hot water was not very hot. In fact, lukewarm would be the description. I'm sure its not like that in the warmer months.
And we were disappointed they did not keep the hot tub open. It would have been nice to be able to use it, but it was covered and cold.
The hot tub not being open, the hot water situation, and the lack of light in the room makes this a 3 star review. Almost a 4...but thats "very good". We were not really feeling like it was a good choice for our money.
