This classic hotel in the heart of the French Quarter made our stay in New Orleans. Close enough to Bourbon Street to visit if you want and far enough away to avoid it if you want. Our room was small, but not claustrophobic, and it could have used some more storage space. The room was clean and neat and we had a good view of the Mississippi river. If you can find room at the Carousel Bar you need to experience it at least once. The staff was attentive and the short walk to the attractions in the French Quarter made for a great stay.
