Once again, a great visit at the Villa Convento. If you want the pristine sameness of a chain hotel, this is NOT the place for you. But if you're willing to overlook some cosmetics in exchange for a great, family-owned and operated property that's in a great location, I can't recommend this place highly enough. The new reception area is gorgeous, and the courtyard improvements are great as well. Plus for room 401: a mini fridge; minus: the decrepit hair dryer (easily remedied with a stop @ Walgreen's!) Super location, close to French Market, Croissant d'Or (across street) has everything to satisfy your early a.m. appetite.
And if you're a dog lover, you'll be in luck: look for April and Tamale, and/or Warren and Oyster - the most charming welcoming crew you could hope for. Thanks, Villa Convento, for another great stay.
