We arrived at the Villa Convento about an hour and a half prior to check in time, hoping we could drop the bag off, maybe park the car and stroll a bit before the room was ready. To our pleasant surprise our room was ready when we arrived! We were lucky to find a parking spot on the street right in front of the hotel, so we didn't end up at the garage. Warren was very helpful on suggesting what to do for the night. The hotel was far away enough from the nightlife area that we slept pleasantly, and the bed was very comfortable. We did have some noisy neighbors the second night that were coming and going, and hanging out on their balcony until we got up the next morning. But hey! It's New Orleans, who cares! We just joked that they were the vampires we had heard about on our ghost tour. Barbara suggested the best part of our trip, a swamp tour! Overall, the hotel is a great place to stay. The staff was great, our room was great, and they only charge a dollar for drinks at the front desk!
