I just got home from a 3 nights stay in this lovely property. The location is perfect for being near but not in the French Quarter. Only a few blocks to all of the action and far enough away to offer a tranquil respite. The owner, Barbara, was a doll. She made us feel so welcome and was so helpful every step of the way. There were 3 of us and the two bedroom apartment had a kitchen, dining area and living area which was perfect for spreading out. The garden out back is so beautiful, relaxing and quiet - the perfect place to hang out between jaunts around NO. I feel comfortable speaking for our crowd when I say that all of us felt safe walking in the neighborhood both day and night. Loved watching the Second Line walk right past the Hotel Storyville - it was a fun amazing sight right from the comfortable front porch. I can wait to go back again soon.
