This hotel is where we stayed on our very first trip to New Orleans. It is a beautiful hotel, rich in history and culture, and is exactly New Orleans. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The courtyard is lovely and romantic. The location couldn't be better if you want to be close to Bourbon Street without all of the noise, not to mention walking out the front door and be half a block from Jackson Square. We have recommended this hotel to many of our friends, all of which not only loved it, they stay every visit.
