Great courtyard hotel recently remodeled. Have been staying here for 20 years. Rooms are a bit eccentric, but hey, it's New Orleans. Very safe area and hotel has good security. Only issue is valet parking. It's cheaper to park in the public lot across Decatur. The staff are genuine and helpful. Will keep staying here forever.

Right in the heart of the French Quarter, this hotel was a great stay. We visited in the hot heat of July and the price was seriously Low. So low, that we purchased 2 rooms, as we had 4 people in our family traveling together. The interior courtyard was an oasis of pleasantry away from the hustle and bustle of... More

We were looking forward to staying at this hotel for our family vacation and the wait was worth it. The rooms were just right as you really aren't spending too much time in them anyway.

We enjoyed the Inn. The elevator is a tad small...so how much luggage does one need right? The room was clean and I thought very well appointed. We needed for nothing. The inn has a lovely, quiet and serene courtyard with a fountain and a tiny pool, which on a hot day really felt good. It is a wonderful gathering... 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.
