The Audubon Cottages are a wonderful, private experience in New Orleans. However, it is a bit strange not having anyone on property to help with anything, and also to not have a place to eat on site. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and especially enjoyed the privacy of having the pool all to ourselves. That part was really delightful and refreshing in the NOLA heat and humidity. Also, the location is very convenient to get anywhere around New Orleans. We were able to walk a lot, and see so many places. There were some issues with the tv and WiFi, but we didn’t stay at the cottages long enough for that to be a big issue. For the price paid, and definitely for the price normally charged for these cottages, there shouldn’t be issues like this, though. Also, transportation to and from the airport is super expensive ($200 one way for our family of 6), and that shuttle service should be provided either for free or for less. We were made to feel very special, since we arrived a couple days before our wedding anniversary. We were surprised with a beautiful serving tray of meats, cheeses, crackers, nuts, and berries, along with a bottle of champagne and plenty of sodas and bottled waters in the fridge. That was a very nice touch, and we really appreciated it! We experienced some spooky sounds, but that comes with the territory of one of the most haunted hotels in the world.

The cottages are the only place I want to stay in the quarter! Fantastic stay, staff, every detail was amazing. They made us feel welcomed, safe, and cared for even in the midst of the Corona crisis and shutdowns. Your staff is incredible!

Thus upscale boutique hotel has a great location in the French Quarter. Considering that we stayed there during a pre-Mardi Gras week, it was reasonably quiet. Our Master Suite was very large, decorated with period furniture, very private, and otherwise comfortable. The inner brick courtyard is charming with heated wading pool. We also had a private patio. Still, it was not a very good value. The somewhat limited self-service breakfast in a charming, but cramped breakfast area is not what you expect from an upscale hotel. For example, there is no espresso coffee, again, something you would expect in a boutique hotel. There are no facilities at the hotel, unless you consider a heated wading pool a real amenity. When we were there, other guests used to the pool to play music and drink (I mean, it is New Orleans). I did not find it to be peaceful or relaxing. And the absence of a comfortable breakfast area is a real drawback. The privacy and relative quiet afforded by this Hotel in the French Quarter comes with a price: the room was very, very dark. If this is not an issue for you, well, go for it. In the end, I would have to say that if this is what passes for high-end accommodations in New Orleans, you may want to adjust your expectations downward. The room expense may be in the luxury category, but it is hard to regard the Audubon Cottages as a luxury destination.

As promised, Audubon cottages was lovely and quiet and tucked away right in the middle of the French Quarter, easy walking distance to everything. It was great to have a living room. The staff was very friendly and helpful, letting us stay in the room late in the afternoon on our last day and making sure we got biscuits at breakfast. Definitely recommend!
