If your main goal in NOLA is exploring the French Quarter, this hotel is perfectly situated near the center. It is a 10 minute walk or less to anything you want to see inside the French Quarter, and a 5 minute walk to Canal Street where you can catch a street car to the Garden District, financial district, SuperDome, etc. The hotel itself is clean and secure. You need a key to get inside after hours. The front desk people were courteous, and our room was spacious with very high ceilings. For a budget room, we were impressed with the size. It did only have a full sized bed, so if you prefer larger you should consider upgrading your room. We were on the street side and did not have a problem with noise from the street. My only complaint, which is no fault of the hotel's, was that we were woken up every night at 2-4am by obnoxious drunk people coming back on Bourbon Street. I think you will get this at nearly every hotel in French Quarter.
The hotel has a decent bar, but there are two better ones close by. Erin Rose is a local, non-touristy dive bar with great po boys (apparently 2 decently famous chefs now work there serving up what a local described to me as high end po boys) just a 2 minute walk down Conti Street from the hotel. French 75 is a craft cocktail bar one street east of the hotel (on Bienville, north of Bourbon), and more touristy. We enjoyed them both for different reasons.
There is also a breakfast cafe in the lobby that is good, but pretty expensive for what you get. Again, there are a ton of places to grab a quick breakfast within a 5 minute walk, and several markets if you would rather buy cereal and eat in the room.
For a quick trip to NOLA exploring French Quarter and the Garden District, we could not have asked for a better value or more convenient location. We will definitely return if we go back, and will recommend to friends and family.
