The first time I visited NOLA, I stayed in a new hotel. I decided this time I wanted an authentic stay. Hotel Storyville is one of the original houses of Storyville, which I found amazing. We had the downstairs suite which was perfect. The full kitchen had a knife block, blender, measuring cups, dishes, etc. My favorite part was the beautifully landscaped backyard. So nice to sit out around the fish pond in the breeze after a night of partying. My second favorite was the wonderful gift bag I received. I won't ruin the suprise but it was by far the nicest I've ever received anywhere. Barbara, the innkeeper, is happy to give you coupons and tell you the best places to eat. I enjoyed reading the books about NOLA left in the hall for guests too. You can literally just pack your bags and find everything you need here. It doesn't hurt that it also has secure off-street parking, which is rare. I will definitely be back.
