“Nice, But Misleading Brochure”
Reviewed March 7, 2005

We stayed 2 nights a the Queen Anne Hotel in the Garden District of New Orleans. Our first impression was not good, as it is located in a still questionable neighborhood, and was not located "in the heart of the garden district" as was promised. It is actually located just between the warehouse district and the garden district, so is a short streetcar ride from downtown. There are several nice restaurants within a few blocks. I would recommend La Madeline for breakfast, The Cheesecake Bistro for lunch, and Bravo! Italian for dinner. The Queen Anne is an unusual set up - it is a beautifully restored Victorian house with no staff on site. You must check in/out at the Prytania Hotel one block away. The info I found misleading in their brochure and on the web was there is no concierge, no courtesy car, no onsite restaurant, no onsite barber/beauty salon, it is not in the "heart of the garden district" and the "deluxe continental breakfast" was a joke. The breakfast consisted of an apple, coffee, and plastic wrapped muffins served on styrofoam plates and cups. It was basically airplane food. The brochure shows a lovely breakfast of a variety of fruits, croissants, coffee served in beautiful china cups, and a bouquet of flowers on the table. Not everyone uses a continental breakfast as their deciding factor, but you may be disappointed. The rooms are very nice, even though our's was not a four poster bed. The ceilings are incredibly high, the doors alone are almost 12-15' tall. The kitchenette would be handy if we were staying longer. The shower had very poor water pressure. The building is beautiful. The neighboring buildings are all very old too, and are a mix of beat up renters and homes currently being refurbished. By 2006 the houses across the street may be completed and the neighborhood revamped. It is one block from the streetcar, and actually fairly well lit at nighttime. Despite it's drawbacks - I expected more - it really is a nice, clean place to stay. I really enjoyed staying in an historical room with real character. I wish they had information on the history of the house available to read.

What a great surprise to find out that this property existed. It's a gorgeous renovation of a Victorian Mansion. The craftsmanship that was original to the building has been completely restored. Our room had a wonderful king bed, safe, microfridge, wet bar, and double the size of a typical guest room. And the location off of St. Charles and the streetcar made it convenient. We walked to Emeril's Delmonico for another fantastic meal and Uglesich's is a ten minute walk. We've stayed in New Orleans many times and we will stay here from now on.

Arrived on a Friday night and loved the charm of the room. Beautiful high ceilings, 12 foot tall windows, giant balcany overlooking nicely landscaped lawns with a giant old oak. Parking on the street was safe and well lit. Nicely appointed room with lovely furnishings and draperies. It was as if the whole house was ours with the magnificent stairway leading up to the Queen Anne room facing the front street. Highly recommend hotel. Nice employees, nice breakfast. Great stay for my three days. The only distraction was could hear the front door close beneath the room in the night.

The Queen Anne has some nice rooms, but don't let them give you 153 if you want to be able to open you shades and have a view of anything but the ugly neighboring houses that are in a terrible state of disrepair.
Breakfast was a joke, just know the coffee is the only good thing.
Service at the front desk is rude. The room was clean, the bed good and only one block to the street car and a short walk to decent restuarants. It's not bad, but it was not what the website leads you to believe.

What a charming place! The rooms were amazing, the one we stayed in had a huge four poster bed with it's own fireplace and enourmous bathroom. The hotel is an old victorian that was totally remodeled and the architecture is beautiful. It is one street down from St. Charles Ave and the famous streetcars. Plenty of places to eat nearby. The only problem is that you have to check in at the Prytania Park Hotel a block away and they don't help you over with your luggage... also there are no elevators!
