Amazing, quirky, perfect
An amazing hotel. Quirky traditional with very friendly and efficient staff. The roof top bar is very cool - fab style, good cocktails, chilled vibe and the most incredible roof top view of the city centre. Our room was big and individually styled and kept immaculately clean. The Mardi Gras parade goes down St Charles Avenue right in front of the hotel. I was a little concerned that we’d be a little too far out of the French Quarter but we loved the location - an old fashioned tram ride into the city and easy walking to museums. We’ll visit New Orleans again and will stay at this hotel, no doubt about that!

Loved it!
Very nice, historic hotel. I loved the decor. You can tell someone put a lot of thought into it. The staff was nice and remembered my name. The Hot Tin roof bar had great food and drinks and view. We visited in the middle of th pandemic because we had to be in NOLA for family reasons, and the hotel did the best they could with the restrictions. I felt very safe from covid there. And anything I asked for would appear at the door to my room in 5 minutes.

Gem in the Garden District

Mardi Gras is crazy! But the hotel handled the chaos well. It’s a perfect location and home base for parades. Highly recommend! Front desk staff and Mike were very helpful. We will go back there every year.
