I was one of about 20 guys that stayed in the French Quarter Suites in late August and we absolutely loved it.
We stayed in a huge townhouse with one massive bedroom on the top floor (which slept 8) and 3 smaller bedrooms on the ground floor which slept 2-3 a room. There was a lounge, kitchen and two bathrooms (both of which were needed when staying with so many people).
While our house lacked amenities it did have the basics such as running water (although it was often warm), clean linen and towels, fridge and even free wi-fi although that was spotty downstairs.
The real benefit was the opportunity for everyone to stay under one roof for $120 per person – ideal for big groups.
Additionally, the hotel had a swimming pool which was about a block down the street and a great way to cool off in the NO heat. Oh and a gas station that was open 24 hours and sold friend chicken and other yummy treats. It was about a 5 minute walk to Bourbon Street.
If you're wanting to visit NOLA in a huge group and save money, then this place is safe, clean and cheap.
