This type of Hotel was a first for us...and we loved it! Had a Balcony Suite which looked out to the St. Louis Cathedral... 1 1/2 blocks away. It was Feb 4-8th, so we knew it could be noisy...but it wasn't too bad. It was just awesome being "in" the French Quarter.
The room was clean and not too small, and the price was good. But we must say, the clerks and employees there were incredible. Friendly and courteous, being oh so sincere. The bathroom has a nice size marble enclosed shower (no tub). There are two long doors that open onto the Balcony...with a table and chairs..perfect for people-watching and enjoying the beautiful views and weather
Parking was right across the street, but expect to pay at least $20 (went to $40 for Mardi Gras on that Thursday) for overnight. One of the best parts, close parking, and walking distance to all the best places...French Market Restaurant, Cafe du Monde (Decatur St), Jackson Square, the Riverfront...and on and on.
If you're looking for a quaint "real" French Quarter Hotel...this is a jewel. Hope this helped.
