This place is bigger than it appears from the street. There are at least 46 rooms. It is very conveniently located across the street from the streetcar that runs 24 hrs and cost $1.25 to get to the French quarter. You can get a day pass for $3.00. We took the streetcar there, and walked back the 1.4 miles from Bourbon street. There is a nice Irish pub across the street with a terrific bartender, and the Voodoo BBQ next door has daiquiri's to go. There is a pizza place on the other side. This is in an area that appears pretty safe. We did a lot of walking. There are shops up and down the street and bars. The free continental breakfast is nice, lots of pastries to chose from, cereal's, bagel, coffee, hard boiled eggs. Our room was fine, and spacious. There were 3 of us, and we had 2 queen beds. Drawback.... there is a small TV in the room on a little table that only one bed can see. The bathroom was somewhat dated. Our room did not smell, and the AC was ice cold and controlled by a remote. Staff was friendly. Major drawback was the parking. They have none. "You can park on any of the side streets", which we did, and it wasn't a problem other than carrying our bags the block away. This room was approx half the price of rooms in the French quarter. I would stay here again.
