This is a lovely and very friendly hotel close to the corner of Urselines and Royal. It is a short stroll to Jackson Square (maybe 2 minutes in strolling time). They have a private, secure, off site garage. The hotel is old but so charming. If you are someone who wants a 5 star hotel, do not stay here. If you want a hotel that is convenient, charming and a quiet refuge after a day in New Orleans French Quarter, this is the place for you. I called the hotel and told them it was my first trip to NOLA and I was bringing my mother. The man who answered my call was so kind, looked through the rooms and chose a room that he thought we would enjoy. It was room 208 (I think) and it was right off the courtyard. You could take the elevator, but we choose to take the stairs. The room is clean and comfortable, though showing its age (in a truly charming way). The building is old (what like 200 years or more) so I expected the wear. My mother and I were completely happy with the location, atmosphere and helpful, friendly nature of the staff. I would definitely come back to this place. Though you should not, this is not a young, lets get loud and drunk, hotel. They pride themselves on their quiet haven just off Bourbon Street atmosphere.
