We stayed in room 6 which was on the side of the house. The room was big enough for a queen bed, two chairs and two dressers. There was a mini kitchen and bathroom en suite. Shower only. Toilet is super close to sink due to lack of space. Most hotels in New Orleans are small, so I can't complain.... More

I stayed in a small room here. It is not as convenient to use as some of the larger hotels as there is no front desk and the room was really small, with old, creaking floorboards but it has character that many people would probably prefer. The location couldn't be better for exploring the french quarter -- there is a... More

Their "2 BR Delux suite" is anything but. It's a one bedroom suite with a bed thrown in what would normally be a living room/sofa sleeper area. Doors wouldn't even close to one of bedroom w/no latch. Couples nightmare! Smelled of mildew. 👎🏼

I love this property! The location is perfect and the rooms are beyond my expectations every time I visit. I have been in 3 different rooms so far and have not been disappointed yet!

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend who travels frequently to NOLA. She said it was a unique hotel not to be missed.

Quiet, small rear room in a good location. Appropriate for one person. Independent traveler would be a good match as there are no frills or easy access to service. When I did speak with the manager, she was very friendly and helpful.

Rear room smelt damp and unused. Bedding felt damp. No sense of any care or interest in the property by the owners. Needs updating and bringing up to an acceptable standard. The concierge was helpful when needed. The location is good but in all other respects I cannot recommend this hotel.

Leave your expectations behind when you visit the 905. There is no doorman. There is no concierge to speak of. Hell--there is no "pampering" at all! If that is what you expect (or want), take a cab down the street to the corporate digs at the other end of Royal. But if you want some historic funk, and to plan... More

The location is perfect! However we stayed for five nights in one of the suites. It was not worth the money .The bed linens were threadbare, mattress badly stained wall paper was peeling off and it had a strange damp smell.

This small hotel is in the ideal location. Royal street is relatively quiet , but close enough to Bourbon St. , Jackson Square, and all the standard tourist attractions . The rooms are tastefully decorated and the staff is generally friendly. Housekeeping comes too early and is relatively persistent about cleaning the rooms in the morning. Sitting on the front...

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.
