“A perfect New Orleans experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I recently had a wonderful vacation in New Orleans, owing in great part to the elegance and comfort of the Hotel Storyville. The room was spotless, comfortable and a great place to ride out the rarest of weather in New Orleans, an ice storm. The kitchen was user friendly and we were very cozy during this weather event. The innkeeper was friendly, accommodating and was available, as little or as much as was needed. We've been to New Orleans many times and have stayed at many hotels. However, we have now found our forever New Orleans home. Can't wait to return.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

A nice break from larger hotels, Storyville is located at the "quiet end" of the French Quarter. Walking distance to jazz clubs and restaurants but far enough from Bourbon St. for some peace and quiet. My suite was clean and comfortable and even had a full sized fridge. Overall good value, clean and convenient. Thanks!

It's unlike any hotel I have ever been to. It's more like home. The rooms are clean comfortable spacious with a full kitchen. A large balcony overlooking tree lined Esplanade Ave. is also a treat. The large courtyard in the back is an oasis in the midst of historic New Orleans. With it's large garden and covered gazebos it's the perfect setting for any type of event or a casual drink with friends or other guests. Would I visit again...I didn't even want to leave.

Room Tip: I liked the room overlooking the courtyard

We did a great little stay-cation here and don’t think you could find a more perfect place. It’s relaxed. It’s charming. It’s unique. It’s comfortable. It has a fantastic location. The entire hotel has a beachy/nautical theme. Our room had a sailing ship motif that brought to mind New Orleans’s status as one of America’s great port cities. All the rooms are equipped with full kitchens, which allow for some of the comforts of home while on the road. What better way to celebrate the morning than by making a pot of coffee and taking in the beauty of Esplanade Avenue from your balcony? You could feel like you live in New Orleans here even if you don’t. I've paid at least three times as much for a four star hotel room in this city only to wind up in a postage stamp sized box with no character. Our room at Storyville was spacious and bright. There is a large backyard/garden area which we unfortunately weren't able to take advantage of because of the wintery weather. It was a five minute walk (at most) to the French Quarter and Marigny.

Storyville has one of the best courtyards I've seen around New Orleans. The room decorations are right on point. And it is in the perfect location, close enough to the fun of the French quarter but not right in the middle. It's great for a romantic getaway...

I recently spent five days in New Orleans just to kick around, relax and enjoy the great food and music this unique city has to offer. It was my second stay at Storyville and certainly wont be my last. My room was very nice and clean. The owner, Barbara, has obviously been hard at work. Particularly on the back yard which has been transformed into a lush garden with a covered bar and sitting area perfect to enjoy book and a cool beverage. Storyville itself is in such a premium location. Quite neighbourhood just two blocks from Little Dizzies for breakfast or Buffas a laid back local bar also with great food and live entertainment. Only a few blocks further is the Fr Quarter. Got to love it! I'll be back.
