We had a great time staying in one of the guest houses. The rooms are charming and have been upgraded with awesome, new furnishings. Things to remember: the buildings are over 100 years old, so don't expect 'new hotel'. What you should expect is old-style French Quarter surroundings with hardwood floors, beautiful new beds, original walls, doors and windows, and some of the best surroundings in the area. What I particularly liked was the proximity to Bourbon St., but located far enough away so you the night life didn't keep you up. Highly recommend!
