“Hotel room bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2007

We stayed in room 502 which had mold and mildew infested shower, busted AC outlet, and service often forgot to look in the shower for dirty towels in need of replacement. Location is great and pricing was fair. On our way out we saw inside the room across ours that was also a deluxe but was almost two times bigger. We passed by Royal Sonesta on Burbon St. and that hotel looked much better while being similarly priced.

Our stay at Place'd'Armes was wonderful! The room was terrific. It was very clean and opened onto the georgeous courtyard, which was lush with greenery, a fountain and a small pool.

There is a parking garage right next door and we took our car out only once during our 3-day stay. The staff was always helpful.

The location is great, just a half block from Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter. The rates were reasonable. When we go to New Orleans again, we would definitely stay there again.

What a stay! The rooms were magnificant, I strongly recommend the upgrade to the deluxe courtyard view it was worth all and more.

The staff was some of the friendliest I've seen in a long time. They directed us to good restaurants and a great evening tour.

The hotel was immaculate. The breakfast looked great, but to be truthful didn't try it because did the Cafe du Monde thing. A/C worked great, which lately is a big thing for me because most rooms are hot - not there though. We had a very large suite, couch, coffe table, floor to ceiling windows. They have a great pool and super romantic courtyard.

One of the few places in French Quarter with thier own parking which is cool, made getting into and out of hotel better.

Alot of my friends warned me against going to New Orleans, but things are clicking there, the cool stores were open, the restuarants were back. Try Arnauds it was great. Lots of music on Bourbon street... very very safe, prices have come way down, and it was an inexpensive but great trip.

We had such a great time we are probably going back in October. Another good thing - the huge crowds are gone. That was great for us, probably not great for NO though. But it was nice. I had no idea how much I really missed it. It seemed safer to me now than pre Kat.

Place d'arms is great right on the square, best location, old 1700's or 1800 building, the real thing, all updated, but still has it's great courtyard which is important to us. Very clean, very well run, the staff very nice (I know I said that already, but they were great :) )

  • Liked — Beautiful rooms, great friendly staff, location
  • Disliked — hmmm... that is a hard one.. having to pay for parking although it was pretty cheap.

We went to New Orleans and decided to stay the night on a whim. We stopped at the welcome center and the lady at the desk let us know about a special deal at the french market hotels going on. We called the Place d'ArmeS and got a great room . Nate and Dion went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of and had everything we needed. They let us know about special trips and sight seeing events. They made us feel like we have a home away from home. The other employees also were helpful and made us welcome.

My sister and I stayed here in a lovely two bed room with a charming little verandah overlooking the courtyard. The feel in this hotel is quaint and more like the French Quarter of old. The breakfast was nice and served in a lovely room with very interesting floor inlays. The courtyard was lush and exactly the look and feel of a more genteel time. The room had brick walls which gave it a great atmosphere. The location on Jackson Square is wonderful,near everything. The staff was knowledgable and helpful. I am going to book this hotel again next year.

My husband and I stayed here for a romantic weekend get away. The room was great, the staff were friendly and the hotel location was excellent. If you're looking for something reasonably priced and is a short walking distant to Burbon Street, shopping and many restaurants and shops, this is the place to go! The front desk clerk and bell hop gave us excellent suggestions and directions to various attractions. We also felt very safe because of the inside corridors and gates on the courtyard. We can't wait to go back.

We just got back from a week's stay at the Place d'Armes hotel, located in the heart of New Orlean's French Quarter. We were immediately charmed by the old brick buildings, surrounding a simply gorgeous and tranquil courtyard. The rooms were quaint and comfortable and the staff was immensely helpful as this was our first visit to the French Quarter and weren't sure what to do first.

We spent much of our afternoons relaxing by the pool in the lush courtyard. It was like a little slice of heaven to escape from the heat of the day in this quiet little hideaway.

Again let me say that the staff was more than accomadating, they were very friendly and helpful and were more than happy to book tours for us or simply recommend a great place to eat.

We can't wait to go back to New Orleans and we will DEFINITELY be staying at this beautiful hotel!
