On arrival we had a warm welcome from Warren, who was super helpful at all times during our stay. The Hotel was perfectly situated in the French Quarter walking distance to everything we needed. Such a cute Hotel with interesting History. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We loved it so much that we extended...

For me the best place in the French Quarter with affordable price. Ideally located in front of the French Bakery "Croissant d'Or" close to the French Market and Frenchmen. This hotel is in the French Quarter but in "quiet" area close to all the main attractions of the town. The balcony rooms are wonderful with their view on the NOLA's...

This was a lucky find and worth every penny!! Keep in mind - while there have been upgrades on certain fixtures - this is still a 300 year old place - so if you're expecting a 5-star accommodation, you'll be disappointed. We weren't!! The folks here were great and came in handy when we had question about places to eat...

I was pleasantly surprised with this boutique hotel. It was conveniently located near a lot of good attractions and was a nice room for the price. I liked the setup of the hotel and our room was super comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating and gave good guidance on where to go. Pro tip: verde Marti is a block...

We found this gem four years ago through the recommendation of a friend. Ever since this is our go-to hotel when we visit New Orleans. A charming hotel with lots of history. The staff is amazing. They have helped us find amazing restaurants and sites to see. Our most recent trip was for our anniversary. They went above and beyond...

Great location, and staff. The parking garage off site is a short hike and can get confusing so follow the directions they will provide you. Our room was upstairs and was a half loft shared with friends. The room was clean and adequate for our needs. Nothing special but we didn't go there to stay in the room or lounge...

Pros: Location was perfect for walking to Bourbon Street, Cafe du Monde, and all around the French Quarter; staff was friendly and helpful; our room was clean; and it has lots of NOLA charm (you can listen to ghost tours from your balcony) BUT... I was too nervous to enjoy the balcony bc it felt soft and unstable; the elevator...

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.
