“Perfect Location”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

How close can you be to Burbon Street and still have a wonderful "quite" hotel courtyard? This is just the place for you. This was my second trip to New Orleans and both times I stayed at this hotel (thank goodness for my girlfriend who told me all about it!) The room we stayed in was an INSIDE room - which is windowless - however quite nice. The bed was truly comfortable - AND I didn't toss and turn the first night (which happens quite often when I am at a hotel) and I couldn't ask for a better location. 1 Block away from Burbon Street - 2 Blocks from the French Market - AND THAT COURTYARD . . . Great. It encompasses all that is great about the French Quarter - the staff were so helpful - they made suggestions - they welcomed us back (yes - two of the staff remembered us from our previous visit) - what more can you say. When I needed to rent a wheelchair they got me all the information I needed - and took excellent care of us. The pool is shaded and very inviting. There is a continental breakfast and it is a nice way to start your day. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is one block off Bourbon and 2 blocks from the French Market. It was a perfect location for everything we wanted to do. We stayed in one of the windowless rooms - which enabled us to sleep in. The rooms are small but old and beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable. There are too many great restaurants nearby, so we never tried the continental breakfast. The only downside was that we got a room close to the utility closet and the walls are extremely thin so we heard when drunk people came back to their rooms and when cleaning service started. It was so dark though we didn't really care.

We spent almost no time in the room which made our interior space perfect but if you plan to hang out there in the day time, I would get a room with windows.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from the elevator and utility closet

Myself and two other ladies and a ten year old child stayed here on Sunday October 6th. Our five day cruise got shortened to three so we had to stay at several hotels from Friday night thru Monday morning. We saw this on the internet and thought it would be a great location for our pre -cruise stay and since we were headed to The Court of Two Sisters for Brunch .This location was perfect. We had a second floor interior room .Everything was so cute and comfy. The breakfast on Monday morning was a an excellent treat. We also loved the parking garage right at the hotel. We will be staying here again when in New Orleans. We LOVED the place...

Well we just finished another perfect week (Oct 13-18,2013 ) at the Place d'Armes. We have been coming here at least once a year for the last 8 yrs and have NEVER had a bad experience. Coming to this hotel is like coming home, the staff always makes us feel like family, with a smile and a friendly word. There has never been a problem that the staff has not taken care of immediately and many times they have gone above and beyond to make sure everything was right.

We usually stay in one of the balcony rooms, either on St. Ann or Chartres St., the balconies are just fabulous ... The one caveat about the balcony rooms is that they are on the street, so you will get "street" noise every morning, it is the sanitation trucks, the delivery people, even just people talking loud and laughing ... basicall just normal city sounds, they can be loud at times, it never bothered us, since we are usually up early and watching the city come to life with a cup of coffee is fun for us. If you want it quiet, then be sure to get an interior room, those rooms are quiet.

The rooms are comfortable and clean, if you really want to pick you will probably be able to find VERY small faults here and there ... It is a 200+ yr old building, but they have been updating everything .... The water pressure is great and the water is plenty hot .... The A/C is enough to turn the rooms into a freezer if you so desire ... Breakfast is a basic continental breakfast, with good coffee, orange juice and pasteries ... If you want more there are many restaurants within 100 yds or so of the hotel ...

The courtyard and the hotel property are always clean, with staff constantly cleaning up .... Trying to keep the pool spotless is a chore with all the trees and plants overhead, but things are pretty darn good ...

The location of this property is the best going ... Within a few 100 yds or so of Bourbon St and Cafe DuMonde .... Within a 100 ft of Jackson Square ... Right off of Royal Ave and all its shops and galleries .... If I had to place a hotel anywhere, this would be the place, cannot get more convenient ...

I will end this now, till next year, but I will state again, we have stayed here for some 40-50 nights over the last 8 yrs and I can truthfully say that there has never been a problem that the desk hasn't promptly taken care of, and gone out of there way to make us feel great ... If you want a 5 star luxury hotel with all the trimmings then this is not the property for you .... If you want a hotel that is very nicely priced and clean and friendly with an excellent location then this IS the place for you .... You will not be disappointed ....

Room Tip: Balcony rooms if you want to see life go by and don't mind some noise from the street .... Inter...

It is located SO CLOSE to Jackson Square! When planning for our trip, I didn't realize how small the blocks are in the French Quarter. We were just steps away from the artists and musicians at Jackson Square and a very short walk to Cafe du Monde Not to mention the lovely views at the heart of the French Quarter. The hotel was lovely. Our room was clean with newer furnishings. We requested a balcony room and spent a lot of time out there watching the people go by. We didn't have any trouble with noise and were still just a short walk to Bourbon Street. The free continental breakfast was not anything to write home about. We had the same premade danishes and mini muffins everyday. Still, it was convenient to be able to grab those things and then get on with our day rather than having to hunt down a place to have breakfast. We were unsure of where we would eat dinner one night and the front desk clerk was happy to suggest things to us and provide us with menus without us even having to ask. I would happily stay there again.

perfect location!lafter 15x I find this to be best location!close to Jackson square, &Bourbon Street. The room was clean, the courtyard pretty & all well taken care of. But I must say this hotels greatest asset is their bell captin Cory. I have NEVER seen an employee so willing to go above & beyond before. Besides helping with our bags when our shuttle didn't show she callled a cab directly & asked him to rush us o the airport.even when off the clock she walked a lady down the street to a resturant to be sure she could get a table! Now the staff at the front desk was another story. 2 of the 4 I dealt with were awful. 1 every time acted like you were bothering her & the other kept saying she was there for 25yrs.while she spoke in a condecending manner. Joyce was nice.

My wife and I stayed at Place D'Armes on August 23-27, 2013. This place was perfect for our extended weekend stay!
From the moment we walked in, the staff at the front desk was very cordial and serviceable.

We stayed in an interior windowless room. It was a decent size, clean and had the basic amenities (iron/board, dryer, and coffee maker).
The hotel has free wifi and at a good speed.
It's located a half block away from Jackson Square and world famous Café Du Monde.

The pool and courtyard are are very cozy, but with al there is to do in Nawlin's, we only stopped by tjere once.
We are repeat traveles to NO and have staued at places like Hotel St. Marie. This place was a bit quieter and in a better location.
Next time we go back, we'll choose a window room, but we are definitely going back to PDA!!
