I stayed upstairs in the Rose Room and in all honestly I expected the room to be quite small from the pictures but they don't really do it justice. I found the room rather sizeable and was surprised to find out that I had my own kitchen area too. I loved this, it really made it feel like a home away from home for me which is a real comfort during 3 months of travelling. I really liked the set up of breakfast too so I could just dash downstairs in my pjs, grab what I wanted and head back to my room to heat it up or whatever was needed.
I wanted to stay a little bit out of the French Quarter and this position was just perfect. It has a bus stop almost right out front and it is just a short bus ride to the French Quarter and about an $8 cab ride back if you're coming back late. It is super close to lots of fantastic shops and restaurants in the Garden District and only a few blocks away from the Lafayette No. 1 cemetery. I also went to the superdome for a Saints game very easily too - I just walked up to Saint Charles Ave, jumped on a street car and walked a little further to the superdome. A few people had also made me a bit nervous about travelling to New Orleans on my own but I never ever felt unsafe.
The owners Raynell and Luis are just wonderfully kind people and very knowledgeable about where the good food is at! They were always happy to answer my questions. Luis even gave me a lift to the Amtrak station when he ran into me waiting for a cab out front which was a god send as I was standing there with my massive backpack on my back feeling very unwell. I would definitely stay here again and I will recommend it to anyone I know travelling to the great city of New Orleans.
