Being French, and this being our first stay in the US, we really thoroughly enjoyed the Olde Town Inn, and particularly the warm, easy-going quality of the hearty welcome we were given at the reception desk. The cleaning ladies are a very nice team too, and you can feel that everybody gets along nicely with each other. The hotel is situated in a very quiet, "typical" (if that makes any sense!) area of NOLA, with a little theater just round the corner where we were lucky enough to enjoy a play by Tennessee Williams (excellent actors and direction!). It definitely is within walking distance of the French quarter, and if you walk down the Elysean Fields, you can even take the streetcar... up to the City Park, which we found a very enjoyable way to discover other parts of the city. The room we had was quite small, but with 2 double beds (could have brought the children with us for the same price), and the only drawback was a fanciful shower, sometimes hot, sometimes cold... but you could manage to obtain lukewarm once in a while!!! We stayed there for 7 days, so had enough time to appreciate the qualities and drawbacks of the Inn. We'll definitely recommend it, it's a nice, very reasonably priced place where we'll most certainly go back!
