We stayed at Place d'Armes for our anniversary trip mid July 2014. While it is an older property, we really enjoyed our stay. Place d'Armes was perfect for us due to two main aspects 1) location 2) price.
We booked one of their least expensive rooms and it was an interior room on the 2nd floor. While we had no windows, it was actually pretty nice because it was quiet and obviously dark at night so we slept really well. And that's all we really used the hotel for was sleeping and getting ready so it did the job. It had great AC and was always clean.
As for the location, that was the best part. We left the front door and Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, etc. were immediately visible and just a few steps away. It was also our desire to stay somewhere semi close to Bourbon street but not on it. This fit the bill perfectly.
I don't often take the time to review businesses, but wanted to in this case due to our experience on our last day with this hotel. After checking out, I went to the computer to check on our flight only to learn it had been cancelled! I received no text, email, call, etc. alert from American and had to spend the next few hours figuring out why in the world our flight was cancelled. Long story short, we ended up having to stay an extra night and fly out the next evening. I didn't complain to the hotel front desk or anything; just simply asked if our room could be available for another night. The receptionist said that our room was actually booked, but she would put us in another one for the same rate we were paying. Although she did offer us a courtroom facing bedroom, but we opted to not get it because it was more expensive.
Well, when we came back a few hours later to check into our new room, we found out that she went ahead and put us in the courtyard room--and honored the price we were paying for an interior room!! After such a long, stressful day of trying to figure our a new flight and way home, it was such a lovely surprise. It was a really nice room too!
Overall, great trip and we had a wonderful experience with the front desk and management. We would definitely stay there again on a future trip.
