The rooms were comfortable and pretty, but the courtyard (where guests mingle and have breakfast, drinks, etc.) is surrounded by guest rooms - so you hear EVERYTHING. Even the staff yelled to one another across the courtyard - at 7am - after a night out in the French Quarter. Awesome. I didn't anticipate the noise factor, considering it's a couple of blocks off Bourbon. Staff was very nice, but I wouldn't stay here again. VERY little sleep.
