Recently stayed at the Prince Conti with my girlfriend. We are college students and on a tighter budget than the gainfully employed and this hotel fell into our price range. The hotel is located just a half block from bourbon but somehow we heard no noise what so ever. The hotel is not ultra fabulous but is great for the price. Surprisingly, we slept better at this hotel than we often sleep at home. Bathrooms are small but workable. They offer free wi-fi which a lot of other hotels we looked at didn't. The small restaurant attached to the hotel serves breakfast but the little cafe across the street is half the price and makes great omlettes and coffee. The staff were very helpful with whatever we needed and happily showed us some "authentic" New Orleans things to do since we didn't want to spend the whole time wandering down Bourbon Street drunk. As with anywhere in the French Quarter, be aware that Rampart Street runs just a few blocks north of the hotel and beyond that is sketchy ghetto-land (just because HBO made a show called Treme doesn't mean you should go there) where you are bound to get robbed, raped, or killed. Not to discourage anyone, just keep in mind to keep your wits about you and not to venture outside the French Quarter unless you know its an O.K. area to enter (Canal Street is not bad unless you get up north of the quarter). But back to the hotel, I was more than satisfied but if you have a bit snobbier tastes maybe spend more money and stay at the Ritz or something. Another thing, if you want to have food in your room like we did, just pick up a foam cooler from Wallgreens on Canal and fill it up with ice from the hotel.
