When we arrived at the Villa we were met by Warren who was very helpful,and let us know of the parking situation. We didn't think it to big a deal, but did suggest a pic-up driver would be nice. Walking the French Quarter is most common as we discovered and not a problem for us and if you come to visit you should expect that every part of a city is not going to be pristene. We never felt in danger. We met Vince the night front desk clerk that night and he was also very knowledgeable of the area. Also told us fun stories about Rose the ghost of the Villa Convento.
Now a thought on the rooms, our's was a small balcony room with everything we needed, the only thing we would suggest is a little updating, such as painting and repairing the small holes in the walls. New carpet will be needed soon. Cushy towels would be nice but not a must. Maybe a lighter quilt, the quilt we had was very heavy.
We really enjoyed interacting with the front desk folks, Barbara was especially wonderful with helping to find great restaurants and anything else we needed. She really went out of her way when we called to say we were coming back to the hotel to get the key to walk to the garage to move our car, she said no problem is the key here I'll move it for you, WOW we were so grateful.
We would recomend Villa Convento just don't expect the Ritz , the Villa ls more fun.
