I was a little wary of this hotel based on some of the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. Check-in was quick and easy as was the valet parking. The parking is in the courtyard of the property, so you can check on your vehicle at any time. Parking is such a nightmare in the French Quarter that we would have skipped the rental car if we could, but we needed it to see family near Lafayette later in the week. Expect the $26 a day in parking and go with it.
The staff was friendly. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. The boiled eggs were like rubber, but the pastries were fine. It is free. Although there are several buildings, we stayed in the main building in a courtyard room, 108 to be specific. The rooms are adequately sized with nice furniture. I did request two chairs. One chair for a couple is not functional. The tile bathroom, though lovely, is a tad slippery. The bed was soft and comfortable; hubby said it was too soft. The old walls were not designed with sound barriers, so noise does travel. Expect it and bring earplugs. The HVAC worked great with the temperature swings during our visit.
The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is only a few blocks from Bourbon Street. It's a quick walk to almost anywhere in the Quarter except for Canal Street. That's a longer walk. I was impressed with the surrounding historical buildings. Our haunted history tour even stopped out in front of our hotel. Apparently the hotel is haunted. We had no problems; however, I heard from the staff that most ghost sightings have been in building five. Highly recommended.
