“Step back in history!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2006

If you want to feel like you've stepped back in history, this is the place to stay. The courtyard is fabulous! You feel a part of being in another time. The rooms have such detail-wood beams, brick walls, french doors. Plus you are right at the center of the French Quarter. Cafe du Monde, the French Market, Jackson Square, Royal Street with all the galleries, etc is all within a block or two from your hotel. I brought 2 children with me and they really liked the hotel. The courtyard pool was a welcome relief after touring and the location provided quick and easy access to attractions.

Our stay was wonderful. The PlaceDarmes is located right in the heart of the French Quarter, literally feet from just about anywhere. The Hotel was in great shape, the staff was very helpful and attentive, the courtyards were spectacular. We didnt go swimming but saw several people enjoying the pool. The room was right over the courtyard and cold and cozy. We would go back anytime.

Our family (mom, dad, 3 kids--10-15) stayed her July 3, 2006. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and huge--plenty of room for the roll-away bed we needed and still lots of space. We absolutely loved the atmosphere and location. Our room was an interior courtyard room and was completely silent! We wish we'd stayed 3 nights and skipped going to the beach!! The French Quarter was fabulous and we were so close to everything--So glad we stayed at Place D'Armes instead of the convention center as origianlly planned! We were right around the corner from the cathedral at Jackson Square and about a block from Cafe Du Monde--perfect! One note: cars are parked up on the roof by valet via elevator--had we known, we would have left most of our stuff in the car and taken only what we needed for the one night into the room with us--it was a 2-week adventure, we had a lot of stuff...No problem, but good to know for our next visit. One of the best vacation nights we've ever spent!

This hotel is arguably one of the best locations in the entire French Quarter. Literally steps away from Jackson Square and Cafe Du Monde and just a couple of blocks from Bourbon Street and the French Market, it is just a short walk away from any of the attractions of the French Quarter.
We recently stayed there in July, so the location was especially good, because you can go back and cool off for a while before you take off on another adventure. Because of the summer season, especially great rates are available (go to the hotel web site for the best prices) We are frequent New Orleans visitors, although this was our first trip back since the hurricane.
It is quintessential French Quarter. It has a lovely courtyard and small pool. A small but cozy lobby.There are balconies and french doors opening to the courtyard. We've have never stayed in one of the interior rooms (no windows), and I would recommend you pay the little extra for the courtyard rooms.
A continental breakfast (croissants, cinnamon rolls, coffee, tea and juice) is available. Valet parking is right next door and convenient (20$ per night) The staff was friendly and helpful and I think appreciative of the tourist visits.
Not a fancy place, and a little worn around the edges but a real French Quarter experience!

Place d'Armes--THE place when visiting New Orleans!
We spent a few days in New Orleans in the Spring, 2006 and stayed at the Place d'Armes Hotel. A small, European style hotel located in the heart of the French Quarter, next to the Cathedral and diagonally across the street from Jackson Square.
This was our third visit there in perhaps ten years and we were pleased to note that the service and hospitality were equal to or better than we had experienced in the past. Small but very efficient and helpful front office staff, garage, excellent restaurant in same building, great location within walking distance of many other top-rate restaurants and other attractions. Ideal for tourist or business trip to New Orleans.

We have been to NO many times and only once did we stay somewhere else ! This hotel is the greatest! It is quaint, has loads of atmosphere, the staff are great and it is quiet after a long day and night out. I cannot recommend it enough! We have had both interior and exterior rooms. I would recommend the exterior, however in a pinch the interior rooms will do!

The Place d'Armes Hotel in New Orleans is an excellent hotel! Every staff member is cheerful, helpful, and readily available. The hotel is extremely clean and well-tended. The courtyard with its plants, flowers, and pool is a delightful place to start and end the day. I expect to stay there every time I visit New Orleans.
