OK.....if you don't want to experience REAL New Orleans, go to a $1000/night generic chain hotel then wonder what New Orleans was all about.
This place.....is 1950's New Orleans....you expect Tennessee Williams and Blanche Dubois to come strolling by any moment.
The Courtyard is beautiful (the hotel was THE New Orleans Hotel and courtyard in the Dana Delany movie "Back to Eden."
The location is INCREDIBLE...two steps for Cafe' Du Monde, Bourbon Street, Gumbo House, Layfayette Square, but on a very quiet side street. New Orlean's major hotels are surprisingly inconveniently located with a hot, muggy, smelly walk to get anywehre...this hotel IS where you walk to!
The nightly rate is unbelieveable....they almost give the rooms away in a city that is known for expensive rooms. Let's be honest...you are buying......a bed to sleep in, NOT a gourmet room. The beds, furniture, carpets, A/C are probably from the 1950's....but wow, for the location and price...what more do you need? A beautiful courtyard, a fun 1950's pool, and LOCATION!
You can shop/come rest/ eat/come rest drink/come rest.
Why pay $1000 then walk a mile to get to Jackson Square?
We found this place after paying a TON for the Windsor Court and getting a filthy room overlooking the business district, a mile from Jackson Square. We came here for $100, we right on Jackson Square....and got a tired, but acceptably-clean room.
I loved it. (My fastidious wife didn't.)
