What a pretty and inexpensive place to stay in NOLA. The cons: nice hotel, very pretty and well maintained; however, like most places in NOLA the house is old so you will have some creaky and uneven floors, a bit of an older look, and maybe not all the super modern conveniences. If that is important to you, then go stay at the Marriott. If you are looking for a cross between a b&B and a hotel, then this is for you. The MAJOR disadvantage to this hotel is that they often want a non-refundable 100% deposit when you book- so you need to be sure your trip is on and that this is where you want to stay. The breakfast is bread/continental only. The pros: Excellent value, with a lot of good restaurants around. It is right on St. Charles close to downtown- in between the Garden District and downtown. The streetcar does run right in front of it, though it is closed through there for repairs. This is a great place to stay for Loyola or Tulane parents- just save a room for me! I have stayed here three times and did have some noise from trash collection the first time, but the other two times were fine and one night we slept with our balcony door open, facing St. Charles, and it was not noisy.
