Place d'Armes is a beautiful hotel that exists of more than one building, that -as one- makes a very very nice accommodation. Location is in the heart of the French Quarter, everything you want to see is in walking distance, even Frenchmen street is not far by foot.
Parking is $28 a day, which we thought was a lot of money, but our car was safe and near.
Without knowing we had booked an 'interior room ', which eventually turned out to be a room without windows. For our four nights, that was a bit uncomfortable. There was no other option than to book another room for $45 per night (because we where with three). But that room was very spacious and beautiful.
Costumer service is excellent. The hotel has a beautiful courtyard with a (small) pool. Everything is clean and taken care of. Unfortunately there is no sports facility.
About the environment: the state tourist center is very near. They will help you with everything you want to experience in NO without wanting to sell a sightseeing or trip. We had a very friendly, informative conversation there.
Bourbon street is almost around the corner, but if you really want to experience jazz, go to Frenchmen street; less tourism and a real taste of the great artists NO has to offer.
We went to a good concert and had a great dinner at Chickie Wah Wah, which is 15 minutes by Street Car (tram for $1,25 pp).
I would really recommend Place d'Armes as a great stay in New Orleans.
