We stayed at the Place d'armes hotel for our honeymoon on june 5-11th. We couldnt have imagined a better experience The location is absolutely perfect, right next to Jackson Square, a block away from cafe de monde and about two blocks from bourban street. It was also about a block to the mississippi river. and maybe two blocks to Jax Brewery (we loved the gumbo pot restaurant & the marie laveau bar) We also walked the 10 blocks or so to Frenchman st. but we didnt see what all the fuss was about. oh and I was a bit concerned being two blocks from bourban, but it was no big deal and was actually nice to be an extra block away from the craziness! It really is within walking distance to everything, just remember to wear comfy shoes bc your feet will hurt by the end of the week!! The courtyard was absolutely gorgeous and the pool was much bigger than it seemed in the photos!! It was so nice to be able to come back after a night of partying and jump in the pool. They had signs up saying the pool closed at a certain time, but we would be in it until all hours of the night with other people who had the same idea and not once did any of the staff comment. (but we werent being loud or obnoxious or anything, which probably helped) Oh and this isnt a hotel of a certain age (ie young people partying, older people, families) there really was a healthy mix of everyone. We are in our mid twenties and came across people to hang out with but there was a healthy mix of age groups and not too many kids or people partying. We had an interior room on the third floor, which was really nice. The only complaint is that we would sleep much later than normal due to not having windows and not realizing it was daytime lol normally i will wake up when it gets bright regardless of a hangover! I think next time we'll get a courtyard room, so we can have immediate access to the pool and can go out to smoke whenever, instead of going down the elevater and outside which was a pain. All in all, this was a great hotel and a great experience. We are already planning our next trip back and we will definately be coming back to the Place D'armes for all of our anniversaries and a Mardi Gras or two in the future :)
