Best place to stay in NOLA!!
Awesome place to stay!! Immaculately clean, super comfy bed and pillows, and the staff are really lovely and professional. The hotel complex is so beautiful with gorgeous French design and architecture. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to NOLA, and hope to get back there again to stay a few more nights. This hotel seriously is the best value I think I've ever experienced. Thank you!

Amazing staff and location.
As we entered the hotel the staff greeted us with very welcome hellos. Entering and leaving each day they made sure to smile, say hi and remind us if we needed anything they would help. The pool was small but perfect temp and clean. The courtyard was super cute with a good amount of tables and seats. Our only "complaint" was that our room air conditioner leaked so there was a fan in there to keep the floor dry. Overall, we would stay there again in the future.

Rooms are old but clean. Air conditioning was sufficient for August weather. We stayed for 2 nights, we were upgraded to a double queen bed room but room was not cleaned/bed made at all during our stay. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable bed to stay, tucked away from noise of French quarter but still close to it for a reasonable price. This place is satisfactory.
