Initially I was a little nervous about the neighborhood, but once we settled in I really enjoyed not being in a touristy part of town. We were about a 10-15 minute walk to the edge of the French Quarter.
Our room was really lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast offered a diverse number of options. No complaints!
What really made the whole experience though was our hosts, Matthew and Melanie. They offered very interesting commentary and insider information. We really enjoyed chatting with them. This was our first time to visit New Orleans and they really enriched the experience and our appreciation for the city.
