Visited just after Mardi Gras and would consider it the perfect time to come, both crowd and weather-wise. The hotel itself is a very cool home style art gallery. It is indeed worn down but kind of adds to the charm of the place. Billy at the front desk helped us out quite a bit and we were very grateful...

Thank you for your incredible review! We do love Billy here, and hope for many years to come. He's become a regular of one of the faces here at our Front Desk. Congratulations to your brother, and we hope to see you all back here for the action of Bourbon Street. Being this close to all the action really makes...

The staff is amazing! Friendly and helpful. A wonderful, inviting place to stay. Located on Bourbon Street. Close enough to walk a few blocks to the mayhem but quiet in the evenings. Get a balcony room and enjoy the view.

Great stay. We arrive and our room had been rented. Owner quickly spoke to front desk and asked what happened. Then took us across the street and showed us a townhouse he was putting us in for the same price we had. Very nice and professional! This could have been a bad situation but their quick response made it great!

Great staff. Very hospitable and helpful making the stay at the hotel a very positive experience. If you are picky about rooms, you'll need a bit of an open mind as this isn't a corporate hotel. However, it is authentic and has an ideal location on the fringe of crazy Bourbon. Definitely worth staying here...

We had an amazing experience here, the site of a friend's wedding. Our room was great - the bathroom was tiny (but totally workable) and the bed really comfortable. All that's great - but what takes this place to the next level is the staff, each of whom is amazing. Helpful, friendly, there but not in your face, ready with...

This boutique hotel is absolutely adorable and I was very surprised how quiet and peaceful our stay was considering that the building is right on Bourbon St. I really liked that we were within walking distance to pretty much everything in the French Quarter. The bathroom was quite disappointing, but as space is limited I understand why the layout was...

In addition to be a house with our family name,it was a very friendly welcome on Bourbon street, in a calm part of the street. Nice furnishing, and convenient parking. Balconies all over the house give nice spots to hang around. A handy kitchen with breakfast items and coffee anytime

It was a very nice hotel for the price and close to the excitement of Bourbon. Not close enough to disturb you when you want to sleep. The stay was great and the staff was helpful! Will stay here again!

I made a reservation for two nights which, due to an illness, I called to cancel well ahead of the 14 day deadline. The person who answered the phone, George, said he would have to have a manager call me back because my res was subject a 30-day cancelation. He claimed this was because it was "Mardi Gras" when NO...

Thank you for your review! In your confirmation email (under terms and conditions) it stated the reservation was a 30-Day Cancellation reservation, which is quite common in all New Orleans hotels during an event such as Mardi Gras. All reservations during special events, with cancellation deadlines, are subject to being charged if the reservation is cancelled after the cancellation deadline....

We stayed here at the end of January. The location is close enough to walk down to the livelier blocks of Bourbon Street but be able to return to a quieter place to sleep.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
