I was worried it would be dirty and overly used because of review's of all hotels in the French Quarter but it was very clean the restaurant breakfast is delicious, great happy hours at the bar and it's a nice clean one too, not all covered in bourbon street. Speaking of Bourbon Street, literally 2 minute walk, there is also a convenience store on the left as you walk there. GO TO FRITZELS AND FUNKY PIRATE FOR GOOD JAZZ AND BLUES!!! Madame Laveu's Voo Doo shop is a little ways down on the same side of the street. FRENCHMAN ST. is also a great place to go for Music and Food (where the locals go). Once Frenchman St. is shutdown GET OUT OF DODGE!!! Same for bourbon street. OKAY BACK TO THE HOTEL, valet parking and they will charge for it up front so no worries about trying to drive in that city. Our room, we took a cheapy on a deal through Hotels.com so we didn't have a view BUT what we did have was a quiet room away from Bourbon Street noise. Matresses were crap but me and the hubby are used to sleeping on a Serta iComfort (love that matress) so no other matress really compares AND when you come in trashed on your first night on Bourbon St. you'll just pass out any ways and it won't make a difference. THE FRENCH QUARTER IS AMAZING, so much to do, so much to see, you really have to pace yourself to get through it all, DO THE CITY TOUR through Cajun Encounters our tour guide JASON was the bomb, he was funny and gave us SO MUCH INFORMATION and made it fun and it's a great way to beat the New Orleans heat and humidity (we're from New Mexico so we're used to dry heat). Anyways, the Olivier Hotel is right across the street for anyone considering staying at these 2 locations. I would recommend not staying in a hotel on Bourbon St. but if you want to be close HOTEL ST. MARIE IS BEAUTIFUL AND QUIET WITH A GREAT RESTAURANT AND BAR, HOTEL OLIVIER IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET IF YOU BOOK THERE INSTEAD........Otherwise I don't think you can go wrong, you won't be in your hotel much anyways.
