My friend and I stayed at this hotel during our impromptu visit to the French quarter this weekend. After stopping by the hotel to check it out (it's thought to be the same hotel from the song House of the Rising Sun) we were quoted a rate that we quite frankly could not turn down. Barbara (at the front desk) was so adorable and helpful. I can not say enough sweet things about her. And the hotel was so conveniently located that going to and from bourbon street was no sweat! Also, the room felt like home! It was so quaint and it truly felt like you expect staying in the quarter to feel like. Overall this was a great experience (despite one encounter with Vince at the front desk regarding a "missing" garage key, but Barbara more than made up for the trouble he caused)! I will definitely return!
