Stayed in room 209! Loved the location, and the feel of the hotel! The staff was wonderful and very helpful with any questions we had about things to do, or where to eat. It is located close to so many great things in the city! Will definitely be staying here again when we return!!

The best part about reading mixed reviews of the place you've booked for more than a night is being excited when opening the door to your room for the first time. Room 203 was our home for a few days, feeling more like a cozy city apartment as it sits by itself from the other second floor balconies with its... More

I love staying in the heart of the French Quarter and this place is perfectly situated. Very easy walk to the French Market and Jackson Square. It is, of course an old building so don't expect it to be like a modern hotel. One reason I stayed there is I was traveling with my Mom and they were one of... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The front desk staff was great.(and we met all shifts in the"big easy") They gave advice on where to go and when and gave us the history of the neighborhood. The elevator didn't work and we were on the third floor and the hallways and stairways are not air conditioned, so that was a... More

The Villa Convento is a mixed bag but one with more good then bad. Let just get the bad out of the way first, the property seems a little on the tired side, the decor is worn/dated as are things like the bathroom fixtures. Now the good: The location is excellent, two blocks from the French market and with 15... More

Hotel Villa Convento is a unique small hotel with lots of interesting history. Its basic accomodations with an excellent location...is in a quiet area but close to all the action and a great bases for sight seeing the French Quarter/NOLA. Our stay was fairly pleasant and having researched some of the stories of the property being haunted. I can say... More

We took a delayed honeymoon to NOLA and I found this place on the Internet. Fell in love with the room, the staff, and the location. We stayed three nights total and reserved a balcony room each time. Bed was comfortable, hotel was clean but not perfect (c'mon folks, you trade paint dings and worn carpet for character...it was built... More

If you are all about luxury and amenities, this is not your place. If you are in New Orleans and want to stay somewhere that's comfortable and has the same funky vibe as the city itself, then this is the place for you! I have stayed here a few times and each time, I find myself loving it a bit... More

We stayed at this hotel as a quick weekend get away. If you are looking to stay at the Montelone, by all means stay there. This hotel is old, but has charm and personality. During our stay, the elevator was in the the process of being replaced so, we got extra exercise in going up and down the stairs !... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
