I can only add my enthusiasm to that of the other reviewers. My husband and I (in our early 60s) stayed in the third floor apartment and the other couple we were traveling with stayed on the second floor. We chose the third floor because Csaba recommended it after I told him my husband was a big guy with a back problem. Indeed, the bed was large and extremely comfortable, even for Steve! The room was whimsically and ecletically decorated. The bathroom was HUGE. Our friends loved the second floor apartment, as it was elegant, beautiful and comfortable with WOW factors everywhere.
I also fell in love with the Fauberg-Marigny neighborhood, close to Frenchman's street, and a few blocks from the Quater with trendy little
eating spots that served up surprisingly delicious food.
All in all, I would totally recommend River House to those travelers who value uniqueness, good service, beauty, and convenience in a true New Orleans neighborhood.
