Prince Conti or Hotel Provincial

Does anyone know which place has the larger Suites? There will be 4 adults together for 5 nights, so would like to have the one with the larger rooms - Prince Conti or Hotel Provincial? Also, how far down from Canal St. is the Provincial? Thanks!!!

Conti is a lot nearer to canal street. Stayed at both and preferred the conti. Room at provincial was slightly bigger but it felt more airy at conti.

I have stayed in both hotels, although I've only been in a Provincial suite; staying at Prince Conti this coming May. The large Prince Conti suites have received very favorable comments on this Forum. Provincial occupies 4-5 different older buildings making for greater disparity among rooms; you would need to call to get a more precise description of the respective room. Special amenities such as views (or lack thereof) and balconies would also require direct inquiry. Both are nice well managed properties. Provincial has a pool and courtyards; Conti does not. Typically, Provincial will have SLIGHTLY nicer furnishings and fixtures. The STANDARD room at Provincial is slightly larger than the STANDARD room at Prince Conti.

Part of the determination would be if you would prefer a LOWER French Quarter location or an UPPER French Quarter location. Prince Conti is in the somewhat more commercial (greater concentration of shops, restaurants and bars) upper French Quarter, close to the St. Charles and Canal streetcars, Central Business District and Casino, while Hotel Provincial is in the somewhat more residential lower French Quarter close to the French Market and Frenchmen St. area. Both are relatively close to Jackson Square; Conti is closer to the "action" part of Bourbon St. Street noise in the room would be comparable at both properties, both having a very few low level street adjoining rooms (which I don't believe includes suites) which could pose some problem for the noise sensitive.

Provincial is 3/4 mile from Canal St., Price Conti is 1/4 mile from Canal St. As relates to Esplanade Ave. (Frenchmen St.), Prince Conti is 3/4 mile, Provincial is 1/4 mile.
