Just returned from a great stay at the St Helene. I was a little worried about booking at a boutique hotel since you never know what kind of condition they'll be in or how loud it may be especially in the busy French Quarter. I am happy to say - rooms are well appointed and clean. Comfortable bed and linens. Great location next to the Napoleon House. Continental breakfast was on the small side when comparing with other hotels I've visited. don't bother except for a quick coffee - You're in New Orleans...spend the money and get some beignets at Cafe du Monde, a cheap breakfast at Johnny's down the street or a jazz brunch at Court of 2 Sisters instead of a muffin at the hotel! What truly made the stay outstanding were the front desk employees. Valerie and Donald were especially welcoming and accommodating, but so were the other staff members (i just don't remember their names!). It is amazing what a difference friendly and helpful front desk employees make - you actually feel like you're welcome in the city and not just another face passing thru. This will be my go-to hotel for my future trips to New Orleans - if simply due to how great the employees are. I prefer it to some of the larger hotels I've stayed at in and around French Quarter (JW Marriott, Sheraton and Hotel Mazarin -which are nice, but lack the hospitality St Helene has).
