My husband surprised me with a night in the French Quarter to celebrate my birthday. He chose the Prince Conti hotel based on its convenient location (right off Bourbon Street) and the many excellent reviews he found on the internet. Well, the reviews didn't lie. The hotel itself is half a block off Bourbon Street, very convenient if you plan on enjoying the bars or even hitting the galleries on Royal Street. Despite its central location, the hotel is pristine, charming, and quiet.
We checked in at 5:30 PM on a Friday and expected that might take a while; however, we were checked in and in our room in less than five minutes. Our room was spacious, cool, and comfortable, with a sofa, fridge, and microwave. The room was spotless and the furniture was well kept. We have had trouble before with the air conditioning not working well at some of the older hotels in the Quarter, but the air worked just fine in our room. We turned the thermostat down fairly low and returned after a night of partying to a cool and comfortable room.
A complimentary continental breakfast consisting of huge croissants and danishes, as well as coffee and orange juice, is available every morning until 10 AM. Much appreciated after a long night of drinking. Checkout was a breeze - took all of ten seconds and we were on our way.
I highly recommend this hotel to any discriminating traveler looking for a combination of convenience, value, and comfort in the French Quarter. We will definitely stay at the Prince Conti again in the future.
