I lived in the jazz room at the Bohemian Armadillo for three months while I was spending the summer in New Orleans. It was a great little studio apartment with a full kitchen (hard to come by at a Bed and Breakfast). The apartment itself was cute and cozy. It's set up more for a short term stay, and there wasn't a whole lot of storage space for somebody who is actually living there, but it was doable and would be perfect for a short stay. Street parking is fairly easy, and I thought the place was pretty affordable for the location. I couldn't imagine a better location - the Marigny is a great, historic, colorful neighborhood, and the Bohemian Armadillo is just a couple of blocks away from Frenchman Street, which definitely has the best collection of bars in the city. It's the kind of place locals and "in-the-know" tourists go. The entirety of the French Quarter is also within easy walking distance. It's a really fun place to stay, and I'd definitely recommend.
