We were in NOLA for my high school class reunion and arrived a few days early to sight see. As French Quarter Fest was starting the next day, we wanted a hotel out of the hustle and bustle of the FQ. We were able to take the streetcar everywhere and never had to take our rented car out of the... More

It sounds like y'all had a great trip! We are a great alternative to downtown, especially when events are taking place in the quarter. I'm glad you were able to try to crawfish and andouille hash!

The hotel lobby area was kept very neat. The breakfast items were kept full and were fresh every day we were there. Rooms have some age but-- was cleaned well each day. It is on the trolley route which makes if very convenient.

Though this is a chain hotel, and not an especially high-end one, it has a lot to recommend it. As others have commented, the location is great--lovely neighborhood with some wonderful houses, close to the historical parts of the city, some fine restaurants, galleries, and antique stores nearby (especially Magazine Street). I recommend long walks to explore the area. Farther... More

Our family decided to visit New Orleans this year for Spring Break. My husband went to college there so we wanted our kids to see his campus and the city. Finding a good hotel was key.

We were well satisfied with this hotel, it was on the streetcar line which made it easy for us to get to the French Quarter without driving and parking. The over-flow parking was just around the corner so checking out was simple as well. Awesome location for anyone uncomfortable with driving in a strange city.

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
