“Would stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Excellent location on a quiet street but convenient to downtown and the French Quarter via the St Charles streetcar. The room is lovely, clean and comfortable, although I echo the observation of other reviewers that the poster on the four poster bed obstructs the view of the TV if you're sitting on one side (would be a problem if more than one person is staying in the room). The only drawback to the hotel is the breakfast which is very basic, uninspired and in an awkward location in a narrow courtyard behind the Prytania Park Hotel. I'm not sure why they can't have it in the Prytania Oaks courtyard which is larger and more spacious or have it in both places. Overall I liked it very much and would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

we had a good experience staying here. it's a great value for what you pay, the parking was free, which was a bonus. we started in a king room in the back of the building and moved to a front room with a porch on the second night due to a minor issue with the first room. i would recommend the larger king room with porch because it provided a little more room. noise was not an issue either night. it was pretty quiet.

the rooms are charming, i loved the wood floor and the high ceilings. on what had to have been the hottest weekend to date for 2014, the AC and ceiling fans kept us comfortable in the room, so i'm thankful for that.

the breakfast was simple, we walked in and chose not to eat. it's not bad, but we were looking for a little more to eat. if you like starbucks or other stronger coffee in the morning, then i would not recommend the coffee at the breakfast.

but all in all, we enjoyed it here, it was very convenient for where we had to stay. we spent a lot of time on magazine st. so it was very easy to get there. the rooms were clean and well-appointed.

Room Tip: - Need to check in at the Prytania Park hotel, just around the corner. - There are 8 parking spot...

Excellent location--just 1/2 block from St. Charles Street. But is very quiet. Room is clean but sort of small. The second bed was in a balcony--had to climb a spiral staircase. Free continental breakfast. We had to carry our luggage up a flight of stairs which was not easy for this old woman. But I definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room on the ground floor.

Bed & breakfast feel with four-post beds, high ceilings and very clean rooms set on a quiet street in the garden district. Breakfast is ok, served in the courtyard of the Prytania Oaks on the weekend and in the nearby Prytania Park on weekdays. There's a cute park one block away, and a few casual cafés and restaurants within a 5 min walk. Check-in is in the nearby Prytania Park, which is slightly confusing when you arrive. Superfriendly service. I would stay there again.

I would personally give this 4.5 stars. The hotel itself is beautiful and they did a great job making the place look like a place from a 1920s Hollywood Movie. They had free breakfast but we did not try it. We had a problem with the shower and they had a maintenance man come the very next morning. So good response time. I needed to refrigerate some milk and this place did not have any refrigerators but they did let me store it in the hotels refrigerator. The place was clean and the staff was friendly.

We stayed here 2 nights, easy to find, check in staff were helpful as were the housekeeping staff when we couldn't quite find our room. Not a typical hotel in its layout, two large house conversions - in keeping with the feel of the area. Room was clean and well serviced. We felt secure here, neighbourhood was fine, plenty of off street secure parking adjacent to the hotel. Easy to get into the City centre on the street cars, there's a stop one block from the hotel. Liked the character of this place, would stay again.
