Right by Bourbon St room was clean and nicely appointed great central courtyard with pool Location makes it noisy rooms on one side were noisy to a non-stop generator terrible pillows no room service uninformed staff (front desk not aware there was no room service, housekeeping not clear whether feather pillows existed... isn't this a basic requirement in most hotels? plastic mattress cover - I guess too many people enjoy the party atmosphere too much & they have mattress issues!
Everything. The people working the desk when we checked in around 10pm were exceptional employees. N/a
location is great Thought the staff at the front desk could have been nicer. They didn't even say thank you for staying when I checked out.
Great room. location, and the staff was incredible.
Beautiful hotel with friendly, efficient staff. If you want to stay in the heart of Bourbon Street this hotel is it. Upgrade to Balcony suite for a perfect stay. Everything was great.
More hotel than what we expected. Great staff, great location, great food, great hotel! Will make it our go to hotel every time we visit.
Really enjoyed the Historic aspect of the Hotel. Very opulent, and had wonderful informative signs regarding various history of the building. Staff is really good, polite, and helpful.
- Location, location, location. Traveled with a friend and this was incredibly convenient to everything we wanted to do in NOLA. I'd absolutely bring bikes if you have the means, makes the city a lot more accessible and reduces transportation issues. - Pool - Staff was awesome, very accommodating even at the last minute - it's clear that they all like their jobs - Stored our bikes in the room downstairs so they didn't take up space in the smaller room and the doormen were always available to open it up for us. Before we found this out they kept our car in a gated lot close by to make sure our bikes were safe on the car. - Free drinks at bar are slightly misleading... Not a total scam but just make sure you want well liquor and add up the cost prior to making it a double with "premium" liquor. - Valet can be slow but they did give a heads up that it would take 40 minutes at some times. - Depending on where you are in the hotel you may have a way to walk down the halls to your room but this isn't really a big deal. - Truly not that bad - if I HAD to pick bad things this is what I remember but I would absolutely stay there again.
i stayed here with a group of 9 women. This hotel was in the very best location to walk everywhere that we wanted to go in the French Quarter. It was a really great price and i would definitely stay there again, group or individually. Having traveled to NOLA many times and stayed at many similar hotels, this was the easiest, cleanest, and best value by far.
I can't even put into words just how amazing the staff were. Every single person I met was so friendly and accommodating. Even going as far as making me a make shift shower chair due to my ankle being broken and needing assistance. Every need was met and then some! The ONLY issue we had was the sensitivity of the room keys. We had to have them remagnetized every day sometimes numerous times in a day.
The room was giant The place was shabby, even the uniforms were cheap. The hotel bar closed at 12:30, the room service was from like 4-10 and was provided by a third party, in the morning I called for a sprit and it took FOREVER for it come. I paid 450 for that room. I should have been at the Four Seasons level.
I loved the location of the hotel the staff was courteous and friendly. The in hotel restaurant had good food but was a bit pricey. Our room was clean, I am a picky person so it met my standards. I thought some areas could have had better house keeping. Large dust bunnies were all over the floor near the stairs. The main area that was traveled by the guests were kept cleaner. But most importantly I didn't like that they permitted a drunken homeless person to sleep outside of the hotel doors, not a good first impression for many guests.
Elegance Central for visiting French Quarter Customer-Friendly Historic Small room for Big Price
Friendly staff. Clean. Quiet. Conveniently located in the French Quarter.
The beds were the best I had a hard time trying to get my girls to leave The sandwich we got from room service
Staff was great! Location is excellent. Our room was really small but it still worked. The cinnamon smelling toiletries should be changed to something more refreshing.
Royal, old-fashioned feel consistent with New Orleans old city. Room was a bit smaller than expected, but sufficient for a couple.
* Staff was very helpful, sorted out a room mixup quickly and appropriately, and compensated us for our time waiting * Fantastic pool and view from the roof, the rooftop bar was great * Really a perfect location - about two blocks from Bourbon made it close enough to the street to feel like you're in the bustle, but far enough away to recover after a long night in peace * We were able to get a great value for the room. * Hospitality staff restocked our room's ice and bottled water every night * Super small room, was not able to fit a single cot in the room without moving the dresser * Bed barely fit two people. * Slightly misleading depending on the website you book on, "Double" or "Queen" in our case meant a single bed, and assumedly the same room * Tiny bathroom. Towels were forced under the sink. * Bar closed earlier than I would have expected
Hotel offers a great lobby, bar area, and dining. If your trip includes the French quarter this location is outstanding. You are surrounded by great dining of all types. I would stay here again
In the middle of the French Quarter, but still accessible to the Convention Center. Great staff. Beautiful historic hotel.
Great location and staff. The valet parking crew was very professional and courteous. Olga at the bar was a pleasure to talk too. I liked the modern decor as well. I would recommend this hotel most of the time. Walls are thin--I could hear people talking on both sides of my room. I imagine it has something to do with being an old building. Fortunately it didn't last long, however, if you are there for any kind of festival where there will be a lot of late night partying (it's near Bourbon street so this may happen quite a bit), I'd recommend being one of them instead and not assuming a good night sleep.
Location Had to pay for parking. No complementary toothpaste or bottled water.
The hotel was amazing. I went through Kayak and found this hotel with great reviews and $100 under our budget! When we walked in, the lobby was cute, perfectly decorated, and had the New Orleans feel we were looking for *cough*we're tourist*cough*. We were greeted by Lonny the bellman, who wouldn't let us lift a finger with our bags. He even gave us some free wine vouchers for a near by café. Check in was standard with no wait time and a friendly front desk staff. There is a small pool and patio area if you wanted to take a quick dip (by small pool, it is incredibly small, but still nice to have as an option). This hotel is cute, clean, and has the New Orleans experience with just a quick walk to Bourbon St, Café Du Monde, amazing shops in the French Quarter. Since we were driving from across country, we had an entire SUV packed with professional camera equipment, expensive camping gear, and pretty healthy supply of clothes etc. We were concerned about street parking and were told that if we valet our car with the hotel, it would be in a garage, 24 hour surveillance, and returned to us in the exact same condition we left it in. We thought "it's only $15 more than parking across the street, and we will have piece of mind" so we went with the valet. We remove our luggage for the night, brought in the camera gear (thank god) and carried on with our New Orleans experience as they drove our car off to the garage. Being a typical girl, I realized I left something in the car and asked the front desk if I could either walk to the car or have it brought around. She gave me quick directions and I headed to the parking garage. When I approached the booth in the garage, the gentlemen working pointed to the pay lot across the street, and handed me the keys. I was confused because it was just a $20 over night pay lot that we could have easily used instead of paying $15 more for the "garage" we were told our car would be in. I grabbed my items, double checked all the doors were locked, and took the keys back to the employees in the booth. When I got back to the hotel, I told my boyfriend about the differences in what we were told we were getting and what we actually got as far as parking went. We both agreed that there must be some reason for it and that the garage was full or they would move the car at some point. 8AM: Our hotel phone rings. The supervisor of the parking garage was calling to let us know he was ready to take our car to the shop to have the windows replaced. You can imagine our confusion, seeing as we had gone to bed late and had partaken in what New Orleans had to offer, IE we were hung over and had no idea what was going on. We get dressed and head down to meet with the garage supervisor who informed us that between 3-5am the driver's and passenger side windows had been broken and it looked like items were removed from the car. We head over and look over everything. Sure enough, it was in the same spot it had been the night before, sans two windows. It only looked like some center console change and our GPS had been taken(which was in a locked glove box). The parking garage paid for everything to be replaced that had been taken, and replaced the windows. Our plan was to leave at 12pm after some beignets from Café Du Monde, but ended up having to stay until 6pm waiting for the car to be fixed. Of course our room and valet charges were comped, and the staff acted accordingly, it was just an unfortunate situation that could have been avoided if the front desk had the real information regarding where their guests' vehicles were actually parked. Take what you will from this. Be it, sh*t happens and you move on, or it was a nice stay, something bad happened, and the hotel did the best they could.
Close proximity to must see locations, restaurants and activities; staff was friendly & accomodating
I wanted an authentic New Orleans French market experience and that's exactly what I got at the French market inn. Everything was perfect. It was historical, right across the street from the Riverwalk, two blocks down from Bourbon Street, Clean, safe, right across the street from Cafe Du Monde. We decided that we would stay here every time we came to New Orleans. It was nothing that I didn't like. I'm used to stay and four star hotels so I had to adjust to the boutique feel of the room, but I bet it was comfortable and the atmosphere was authentic and great.
For the price, the inn provides access to the French Quarter, into which I went for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and nightlife. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and eager to help. The room and inn have that French Quarter feel (e.g., courtyard, exposed brick, tall windows). The room was comfortable except for one point. The shower was glass, not a curtain, and was nice for such an inexpensive room. My friends who stayed at the same conference were jealous that I was staying in classier accommodations than they for the same or less! My room on the first floor had no weather strip on the bottom of the door and suffered a draft. Once plugged with a spare blanket, however, the room was cozy. Also, the electrical cords for the television were rather lazily slung over the TV itself. It looked shabby.
The hotel is right at the base of the French Quarter. If you plan to stay in the Quarter, this is a great option. Noise and parking. During a busy time, self park will be almost impossible. We valeted in order to avoid searching for a space.
The location was absolutely perfect: within a few short blocks to all the fun. But the location also provided much needed quiet at night. The facilities were clean and absolutely beautiful. I will absolutely stay here again and will tell everyone about this gem!
Staff and accommodations Nothing
We were super close to Bourbon St but never heard it- which was great! We had an interior room with no windows which I was a little apprehensive about booking at first but it proved to be the best idea ever! After getting in to town early in the morning and wandering around a lot, it was great to ha e a quiet, dark room for an afternoon nap. New Orleans is always busy and there are always people out on the streets at all hours- I highly recommend the windowless rooms for peace and quiet when it's time to get away:)
Great location and next to everything. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful
The staff was great and all and all the property was beautiful. Our room 221 was dark and dingy feeling. No windows and the only curtain on the door wasn't operable.
The lobby was very inviting. I loved the courtyard. The location was great. We arrived at 1030 and had to wait until 1600 for a room to be open. When we were able to go to the room, we noticed it was not very clean. There was trash from the previous occupants laying around the bed. We stayed two nights and on the second day after housekeeping made our beds, they did not leave any new soap or towels and left their cleaning supplies in our bathroom. The first night was quiet, but the second night there were guests yelling and running down our hall at all hours of the night. Id prefer they would have gone back to Bourbon street to do that.
Great size room and an awesome location! Friendly and helpful staff and all for a great rate!
The staff was very attentive. The front desk clerk, Jenn, was very helpful and went that extra mile to ensure we had a plan for our first night in NOLA and found us good bargains for the rest of our time here. The room was large and clean, which should be no surprise. The bed was nice and soft, a perfect way to end a long day of sightseeing. The restaurant was also fun and cuisine and wait staff were fantastic, especially the purple haired server whose name escapes me; she was super helpful and cheery. The bathroom looked like something you find in a Motel 6. It wasn't terrible, just very basic. But, it did the job. The walls are a little thin, so it seemed like we were part of the party that was happening a few doors down. Parking is very expensive; about $25 a day.
Location and service No pool lighting to keep it open later.. It would be nice to use it later
The rooms was charming . Location excellent , large king bed very comfortable, room spacious . Really nothing, ice on first floor but fine
Felt safe and welcomed- solo traveler All was well...nothing is perfect. Rate 9 on scale of 1to10 with 10 being the highest
The hotel overall is fine. The breakfast available at the restaurant was very good. Balcony was nice but only one chair. Very good location and parking on site. A fridge would be nice. Rug is old. Room was dark, but it did seem basically clean.
Little over priced
Attentiveness of Hotel Staff & Manager. Dealt with bug problem very quickly & professionally. Made remainder of stay very enjoyable. Finding a roach in bathroom.
Staff was great. Location was excellent. I didn't use the pool myself but Courtyard and pool looked relaxing. Families were enjoying the area.
Location great. room unremarkable. Tired property breakfast and parking not included
We came to town to celebrate for my birthday and upon check in we were told we were receiving a free upgrade to a mini suite. The room was nice, the staff was helpful. I'd stay here again. It seemed a theme throughout New Orleans that the entire city is getting a face lift, our hotel included. Didn't ruin my stay or really bug me all that much, but there were people painting right outside our window early in the morning
Location We arrived before check in and checked into the hotel knowing we would have to come back since room was not ready. We arrived back at hotel at check in time (4PM) and the room was still not ready. The shower knob in one of the bathroooms broke completely off and 7 of the 8 people staying in the 2 rooms had to use the shower in the functioning shower. We did get 25% removed off of one of the rms
location Rooms are older..had to use a credit card to access safe
The location was perfect, in the heart of the French Quarter. We had a room facing away from Bourbon Street and we couldn't hear any noise from the street which was a welcome surprise. The staff was friendly at all hours of the day, no complaints, no stress.
Location, location, location! This is a great hotel! It was convenient for everything we wanted to do. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will stay there again.
The staff was pleasant,and helpful,and very knowledgeable about the local layout.The tour info lady was very informative.The location is spot on. the elevators were to tiny,and slow.
the closeness to bourbon street gave us good music and sights right from our balcony.
Great location for our group. Easy walk to everything. Lots of noise from the bars but we knew that in advance. Staff was so helpful and friendly. Pool area and lobby were really nice. One elevator was being renovated, so we took the stairs most of the time.
The bellboy was amazing and the location was great! But the $35 charge to park your car one time is ridiculous. Also the a/c in the room wouldn't cool. We burned up all night. Could barely sleep.
Location Water bottle and wrapper were left in the room from previous occupant.
Central location to french quarters. nice courtyard. Loud late night guests returning from partying.
Great location right on Bourbon Street, clean rooms friendly staff. Bad decisions from the reception staff (3 hours to get our room after we arrived in 3 different attempts) and our keycard was not programmed correctly even then. Noisy hotel with the street on one side, the pool being worked on with a jackhammer in the morning on tho other side, and very thin walls everywhere.
It was easy, comfortable and convenient.
We waited over 30 minutes for our car
Location and over-priced hotel in the Quarter. I was here for my 60th birthday. I chose this hotel because I had been here before and had a great experience. Hotel allowed me to change rooms after the ants were reported twice and after my patience had run out. Ant problem in one of three rooms reserved for my 60th birthday. Since I have been here before the system is the following: they give you a really crappy room (interior dungeon room with no windows or a small, crappy and smelly room) you inform the front desk that you are not happy, they respond by saying they cannot do anything until the next day even though the hotel seemed to be fairly empty and it was at check-in time and finally you are allowed to move yourself the following day. The rates are all over the place, they change on a day to day basis. I reserved one of the rooms at full price because I wanted to make sure my birthday accommodations were great and I received a very disappointing, smelly, cramped room with a tiny bathroom. Unhelpful front desk. Overall a sad experience.
The hotel was old which isn't always a bad thing. Our door to our room fell off the hinges and we literally had to sleep with our door opened and unlocked. :( we called downstairs and no one answered. Very dissatisfied Just not comfy and dated. Front desk clerk did not make me happy with how she handled the door situation. She asked me "What do you want me to do?" I don't feel I should ask. I didn't have privacy in a room with females. You think they would bend over backwards to satisfy us. Not the case. Very disappointing.
The room was wonderful with a large king sized bed and beautiful declarations throughout. The included breakfast was a little "holiday inn" but I can't really complain for the price or the accommodation.
Staff and location are incredible. Hotel is beautiful. Breakfast was poor.
The hotel felt very French, romantic, and quaint. It was in a perfect location and within walking distance to the wedding we were attending that night. The rooms were cozy and the balcony was nice. Somehow my reservation was saved under the name "Judith" (not sure if this was a mistake on Kayak's end, or the hotel's), and the staff treated me as if I had done something wrong. My name is not/has never been/isn't even close to Judith, so there's no way I accidentally gave them the wrong name. I entered the hotel to check in with the three friends who were also in the room, and they couldn't find the reservation and I had to ask "ok so what do I do?" and they told me to call whoever I booked the reservation through. The woman at the desk was rude and unhelpful overall, and finally, after we got the whole thing sorted out she noticed that the reservation had been made for two people instead of four (all four of us were standing at the desk) and she proceeded to charge us and additional $50 for the extra people. Of course, I was dishonest about the number of us in the room, but an extra $50 just seemed unnecessary seeing as we only planned to sleep there and not use an abundance towels, or even eat breakfast. The frustrating thing is that my emails from Kayak are addressed to me, with my real name, so I think the mistake was actually on the hotel's end and yet they were extremely unkind and did not apologize for anything. It was just bad business practice, but I suppose with a location as great as this one they'll continue to fill rooms no matter the customer service. Also the price for parking was just insane. I recommend looking for other places to park; a few of my other friends found a nearby lot for $15 overnight parking.
Location $40 for one night of parking
The location couldn't be better - right on Decatur in the French Quarter. And the price was great. If you're looking for an affordable place to crash after a hard night in the quarter, this is a good hotel. The parking is absolutely terrible - the spaces are so small I couldn't get out of the car. Afterwards I learned they have valet parking, but that didn't help me when I pulled in as there were no signs and no attendants outside. Besides, there's no way the valet can get in/out without hitting your door on the car next to you. The concierge was very rude. She insisted that I refer to my girlfriend as my wife - this is the French Quarter, I expect to not have to justify my life choices to the concierge. The pool is nice, but rather small, and when I visited it was very unclean. As guests we had access to the Hotel Monteleone rooftop pool 2 blocks away - but for just $25 more I could have booked my room at Monteleone anyway. The decor reminded me of my grandmother's guestroom, the elevator took a full minute to make it up one floor, the towels weren't soft - I could go on. If you're looking for a cheap place to crash in the quarter, I recommend this hotel. But otherwise I'd spend a little extra cash and stay at one of the much nicer hotels in the area.
Great hotel. Front desk clerk never told me there was going to be a charge for parking. I assume it was included. Wish I would of know instead of paying $35 per night. I felt like i was tricked into it.
very close to canal street and Bourbon street. Able to walk there. Great location for walking to these site attractions. The bed was very sqeaky anytime I moved. To go to bathroom you had to step up and I kept hitting my foot on the upstep to go in. So I kept reminding my mother to take a step up when she entered it so she wouldn't fall.
Location was fantastic. Staff was very friendly. The air conditioner in one of our rooms was not working properly, even after a maintenance person came to service it.
Perfect location, very nice rooms and beautiful pool area. Staff was incredible and probably the nicest pet friendly hotel I have ever stayed in. Very close to all the fun, Harrah's casino, Cafe du Monde, house of blues, Bourbon St. We walked everywhere had a blast and never even thought about a cab. Nothing, the hotel was great and New Orleans is one of my new favorite cities on the planet!
We could not have picked a better location to stay. We could walk out our door and be at Jackson Square. Great for walking and taking in the New Orleans culture!!!!
Loved the history of the buildings and the koi fountain and the courtyard were so beautiful and relaxing. Loved the central location. We were able to walk everywhere. The main thing I didn't like was that at 5 o'clock in the morning our first night there, workman started a LOT of banging and loud talking right outside our window (Rm. #201). It was really loud and I was really looking forward to sleeping in on my vacation and didn't get to and we were out late the night before. When I said something to the front desk clerk she just said 'Oh yeah they're doing some work out there'. I thought that was pretty inconsiderate and I was pretty mad that morning. Also we paid for a room with 2 double beds for my husband, I and our 21 year old son and then they charged us for having a third person. I guess I should have just gotten the cheaper 1 bed room and made them haul a cot up there. Didn't seem fair.
Great location. The hotel was in the French Quarter of New Orleans located 1 block from Jackson Square and 2 blocks from Bourbon Street. We never had to use our vehicle during the stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel but the room was clean and quiet. I will definitely stay there again.
In general it was really nice. The court yard was really nice and clean
The location was great as well as the morning staff Didnt care much for the night receptionist, gave a little bit of an attitude when we asked for extra towels. Oh and the pool was dirty all 3 days we were there. I thought my bathtub had a ring...geez.
We did not have any problems. The room was adequate with good air conditioning, and the staff was friendly. We felt the hotel was a great value and the location was perfect. We were steps away from Jackson Square and a block and a half off Bourbon. The room was a little dark and outdated, but nothing I couldn't handle. They probably should renovate the bathroom sooner rather than later.
location and parking No window in room. Breakfast was poor.
The room was beautiful; the hotel is beautiful; the staff was courteous. The elevator for the car garage broke and myself and many others were trapped there all day and I was not able to get my car out until 10pm. We had to convince the manager that he needed to pay for meals and drinks (even water) while we all waited and then he FINALLY offered hotel rooms elsewhere for the night to the ones who chose not to wait up late to get their cars out when it was fixed.
Great location... within a few blocks of historic/tourist locations and typical regional (cajun,seafood) and gourmet dining. Excellent value.
Great location! Street noise.
The location and the friendly staff.
Clean and in a great location in the French Quarter Room was a little small but we are not stay in the room folks. We were out walking and site seeing.
2 blocks from bourbon
Great service even though the hotel was booked solid for ballgames in town! Awesome doorman/concierge and continental Breakfast~ Breakfast dishes could be a little bit larger - and/or a tray to carry since we had to sit outside to dine~
Staff is wonderful. Courtyards are perfect and the location is great! Would definitely stay here again.
location price furnishings, maintenance level
Hotel room was beautiful. Loved our car was inside the courtyard, safe and close. Can't wait to go back.
Pool, beds, doorman and location Desk staff and the lose of free breakfast
My absolute favorite thing was the real shuddered Windows, floor to ceiling that actually opened up to the French quarter. Like you could hang out the window and watch the groups go by on the haunted New Orleans tours. The fact that they stopped in front of my hotel was only slightly nerve racking The room smelled a little like mold and my ears and throat itched all night. Also, the toilet seat was loose and threatened to throw you on the floor everyone you sat on it.
At first I thought the location was good but at 3am a large group of bums would gather outside of our room fighting,singing,and yelling very loudly-so much that we were scared for our safety. They would not accept our travelocity reservations and tried to charge My credit card again, even though it was already paid for. We did not get the rooms we asked for with two queen beds. The restaurant was closed the entire time we were there too. For the price we paid the tiny room should have had a refrigerator or at least a coffee maker.
Absolutely loved the people and their help with recommendations. Helped to get a bit more of the local feel versus the tourist attraction hot spots. Have stayed before, but still a great location to get anything you want to get to, both inside and outside of the Quarter. Melanie and Allen were superb and always available and willing to go above and beyond. Just had a couple of lights that were out, but was fine. Not much water pressure at ask, and would have been nice to have a little fridge, but no complaints.
perfect location in the heart of the French Quarter, very nice atmosphere, you feel like being in a different time. Of course, lack of internet connection and fancy entertainment set comes with that
location room size
Great location, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Walls and couch were filthy, light on street lit up entire room throughout the nights, breakfast always late, cold, and incorrect.
excellent location breafkast
thr room and the court yard pool
location room to be ready at checkin room to be at chateau not down the road. free parking 35$ extra? seriously
Our room was very cozy and quiet. We felt very safe and would stay there again!
Loved the fact that there was a balcony all alone the front of the rooms, it was a nice view and good spot to read the morning paper and wake up.
all the workers were friendly had true southern hospitality , great location will definately be back.
Location and friendly, very helpful staff, affordable
the room was to small and the tubin the bathroom was small for a child to fit in could not site in the tub was not long was a little tub and it keep runing water
The location and the friendly staff Did not like the new decor at all! Air-conditioning was not working properly.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. They were overbooked due to a wedding for the first night of our stay but they comped us at the Sheraton two blocks away. Then we returned for the rest of our trip, and everything was excellent. Very nice pool area with cabanas, trees, vines, and drink service! Location was also perfect.
All the above
Wonderful courtyard and pool area. Romantic hideaway in New Orleans
The staff was probably the best ive ever encountered. Very hospitable and friendly. Location was great! Drinks were bery good at the bar. And the best part was being able to relax outside in the pool area I pretty much liked everything. Just thought the beds could have been a little more comfortable. But overall great hotel. I would definitely stay here again
Great facility, great courtyar, cute pool, nice modern layout
It was cozy and a good location to the bars I wanted to be around. The staff was very friendly and had my room ready hours ahead of time. It was perfect so I was able to start my weekend vacation earlier than expected. The A/C unit was leaking water slowly throughout the night making a little noise, but wasn't a huge problem.
