Stayed at the VC for the 1st time this past October, staying in a budget room. The room was much larger than I was expecting since it was a budget room, located just off the small courtyard, with a very comfortable bed and pillows. The sink area was located outside the bathroom, which added to the feeling of being spacious.
If you book here, you are not getting a high class hotel. No amenities, no mints on the pillow, not even a telephone in the room (which I found very odd). And it could use some TLC (fixing peeling wallpaper in bathroom, courtyard could use a good cleaning and sprucing up, and why would you ever paint a brick wall). But if you're looking/needing a budget hotel that is clean, quiet, in a good location in the French Quarter, the VC is more than sufficient. I would stay here again.
