I just returned from a five-night stay at Gentry House, and the place could not have been more perfect for our group's needs. There were five of us, so we booked the St. Ann Suite, which had three single beds and a queen bed (the queen bed is in its own separate room, while three twin beds were in a room without a door, off of the kitchen area). Before arriving, I was slightly wary of the noise and safety of the French Quarter, but Gentry House was not only very safe (protected by an iron gate), but also was a few blocks away from the main drag of Bourbon Street, so there wasn't too much noise (don't get me wrong though - there was still some noise, especially on Saturday night, but nothing I couldn't sleep through). The beds were perfectly comfortable, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The location (and particularly the price for the location - at $180 per night, it was a great deal) was amazing - a 5-10 minute walk to anywhere in the French Quarter, and other neighborhoods were also very accessible either by walking, bus, or streetcar. The croissants in the morning were a great touch, plus the fridge was stocked with beverages, cereal, milk, coffee, juice, and fruit. Lastly, Brian and Charlotte were wonderful and gracious hosts. I would definitely stay again on my next visit to New Orleans.
