Thankfully we were not steered away from this quaint hotel by previous reviews. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We live an hour away and wanted a location close to the parade route for St. Patricks day and this ended up being perfect. We stayed in room 12 which is in the main hall on the first floor. It supplied a comfortable king size bed, dresser and flat screen TV. Toiletries were supplied but we usually bring our own because we like specific things. Pleanty of towels and tissue. The room was clean and neat. As for noise, well this is New Orleans so we know there will be noise from other guests, employees and street noises. The continental breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, orange juice, bagels, bread for toast, muffins, cinnamon rolls, instant grits and oatmeal plus all of the condiments. This was just right for something small to tide you over until walking down the street to the Trolly Stop for a full breakfast. The hotel is right on the trolly line so it is easy to get to the French Quarter. Right next door is Voo Doo BBQ and The Slice pizza, which has a fantastic menu and happy hour! St. Charles Tavern does a great burger and breakfast. Across the street is the Irish House Pub which serves drinks and food. As with any large city you take care in looking at your surroundings at night, it never felt unsafe as people were always around. I do advise people do some research on the area you are traveling to and what to expect. This is a house that has been converted to a hotel which means it is an old building with some character. Yes some things need to be repaired but they are working on them. This in my mind give the place character and is not your typical run of the mill cookie cutter hotel. If you are looking to stay somewhere that feels like you are staying in a friends house in the master suite this place is perfect! Thank you to the staff for a great weekend and we will refer you to others and we will definately be back!
