Nice hotel location; near enough to do the whole French Quarter far enough away for peace! Good service especially in the bar. Small pool but great little area for relaxing! Free coffee in reception! Would defo stay there again! Paul MaCartney stays there in a suit when he comes to NO!!

Warmest welcome
I do not think i have ever had a warmer welcome at a hotel. As soon as we walked through the entrance we were so warmly greeted, it was lovely. The women on the front desk were truly wonderful, especially Becky. I also loved the Halloween decor! The room was spacious, with a comfy bed, good tv channels & wifi. Safe & fridge provided in cupboard. Plenty of fluffy towels in the bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Excellent quiet location in residential area, which was an easy 5 min stroll from the main nightlife on Bourbon St. & 5 min walking distance in the other direction to Frenchman St which was fantastic & felt more authentic. Plenty of bars and restaurans nearby. Taxi rank outside hotel. Area was very safe to walk around. Pool area was nice but the water was a bit too cold, I did dip my toes in though! Happy hour at the bar from 3-6pm offering half price on certain drinks. Hotel does need some investment to upgrade, but I understand this is also part of its charm.

Central Hotel
great location, good hotel. friendly, welcoming, accomodating staff. Our first room was pretty poor for the hotel prices. extremely noisey air con and fridge. we were immediately moved the following morning, but after a 10 hr flight it's not helpful to have a poor nights sleep. would book again but would check out the room before taking the luggage
