We stayed here for four nights. The hotel is very clean, staff are generally helpful, it is quiet at night and is generally a good hotel to stay in. Although not technically in the french quarter it only takes around five or ten minutes to walk to bourbon street. The hotel is located on a quiet side street, yet is only five minutes walk from bustling canal street with all of its bars and restaurants; once you cross over canal street you are in the french quarter.
We parked our car two blocks away on magazine street for $15 per 24 hours, which is a competitive rate in central new orleans. We always felt safe walking from the hotel to the french quarter even after dark. We didn't use the hotel restaurant so cannot comment on that although it always looked empty every time we passed it. We did try the outdoor hot tub but left quickly because it is not all that well set up, perched on a ledge on the hotel roof. The one small complaint I would make is that they don't provide a dedicated guest computer with internet access; instead they will let you use a staff computer at reception but obviously only for a short time.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a relaxing city break in new orleans with the opportunity to sleep soundly and do lots of sight seeing by day and evening.
