I spent Christmas with my mother in New Orleans (strange, right? It was okay except everything was closed and it rained the entire time heheh)
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Chateau LeMoyne Dec 24 - 27/2011.
We originally had a standard room that I liked! It had exposed brick and was large. My mother smokes, however, so the hotel gave us a balcony room which wasn't as nice and smaller but it was fine. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are clean and quiet.
The location of this hotel in the French Quarter is PERFECT. You are a stones throw away from Bourbon Street (if you're into that) and Canal Street/St Charles to catch the must-do streetcars.
Around the hotel are great dining option and there a lot of lovely side streets to explore. Right around the corner on Conti Street is a bar called The Bombay Club which has some of the tastiest martinis I have ever had - definitely check it out!
The service at the Chateau LeMoyne was incredible. Every one was super friendly and helpful and genuine about it too. We spent a lot of time at the lobby bar (it rained a lot so what else can you do there besides eat and drink?) and the bartender fellow was soooooo nice!
There breakfast restaurant is cute and large but not cheap but good if you have to leave early and have no time to find other quaint spots in the Quarter.
The hotel as a lovely courtyard with a heated pool that I never used (it was cold outside!!) but it looked great with the comfy loungers and plants.
I highly recommend this hotel who want something cheap but cheerful and comfortable! Again, the location is great and should be the biggest factor in a decision.
Thanks again to the wonderful staff and I will be back for sure :)
