This is a beautiful, classic hotel. We were able to a deluxe room for $99 a night for a weekend stay through a travelzoo promotion. The room and bathroom were small but very cute. The common areas are also very nice. The location can’t be beat. We ate at Galatoire’s, Acme Oyster House, Johnny’s Po-Boys, Café Fleur De Lis, and Café Du Monde, all of which were very good and within walking distance of the hotel. All of the tourist attractions in the French Quarter were also very convenient. The street in front of the hotel was pretty quiet for the most part. We also enjoyed the hotel's Carousel Piano Bar.
We were very disappointed in the hotel’s breakfast buffet, which was $19 a person and very small. However, it was a nice atmosphere, and the wait staff was very good and addressed us by name. Café Fleur De Lis around the corner offered a cheaper breakfast with huge portions.
We had a non-smoking room, but the bathroom seemed to have a faint smell of cigarette smoke. We moved to a different room and later smelled the same thing in the new bathroom. It seemed to come in through the vents. It was not a strong smell, however, and did not ruin our stay. The other negative was that we left our room early in the morning, came back around 3:00 p.m., and our room was still not cleaned.
However, even with the few negatives, I still really liked this hotel. It is a special place and makes you feel like you are really in New Orleans.
