I would definitely stay at Hotel St. Helene again. The location is excellent, close to Jackson Square and all the bars and restaurants without the loud crowds outside your window. Keep in mind this is a small boutique hotel. There is no bar, room service, or even elevator. The rooms were a little small but not bad. The black hardwood floors and white walls were pretty cool. The standard rooms have a little side room with a couch and coffee table, which I found very convenient. The bathrooms had marble tile with glassed in showers.
It might have been a little noisier than a standard hotel but I didn't find it as distracting as some of the other reviewers. I could mainly hear a few doors being slammed in the mornings and cleaning going on in the afternoons. I've had far noisier hotels in New York.
If you're looking for a cool boutique hotel in the French Quarter I would highly recommend Hotel St. Helene.
