We really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would stay there again if needed. It was exciting to stay in such an old, historic building in the center of the French Quarter. That is, by far, the best reason to stay here. We also liked the small courtyard area since it is blocked from view of the street crowds. Very charming.
Now for the reasons I didn't give it five stars: When checking in we had a little wait till someone came to the front desk. Then, when we entered our room we found it quite dark and gloomy. Even with all the lights on it was still very dim, only one tiny window, and my sister felt so uncomfortable about that that we requested another room. The front desk clerk did switch us to second floor room that was a little brighter but she acted offended by our request. The only other disappointment was the complimentary breakfast. Breakfast is a little danish and a little cup of orange juice.
Stay here when you want the fun of staying in the French Quarter with everything in walking distance. Don't stay here if you're looking for a luxury hotel.
