We stayed in an interior room located on the fourth floor. The room was clean, but that was about the only positive thing I can say about it. The TV was not working properly with most channels having a green tint, the clock radio was flashing the incorrect time when we arrived and I had to fix it myself, there was no safe in the room, the sink made the most horrible screeching sound the entire time the hot water ran, the walls were paper thin and we could hear the man coughing who was staying in the room adjacent to us as well as the couple above us having sex, and when people walked by in the hallway you could hear their conversations and everything they were saying as if your door were wide open. I knew that this particular room did not have windows, but after two days, this started to feel very claustrophobic and made it hard to wake up in the morning due to the lack of any natural light at all. The courtyard was the main reason I booked this hotel and planned on spending a lot of time relaxing there, however, this was not possible. There were mosquitoes everywhere and we received at least five bites on various parts of our bodies. These mosquitoes were so aggressive that they even bit through clothing! It was too cool to swim, but no one maintained the pool, not even for aesthetic purposes; there were leaves and debris floating in it the entire four days we were there. The vending machines were the only place in the hotel for you to get water, and it was hit or miss whether they worked or not. We had to tell the front desk on two occasions that the machine had taken our money without returning a bottle and she laughed about it and said it was a testy machine (but refunded the money immediately). At $197 a night, we could have and should have done much better than this.

I booked an INTERIOR COURTYARD room. It was on the second floor (room 207). The room was clean and comfortable, but:
- There is no window. Make sure you do not book an INTERIOR room if you want a window.
- Even with every light in the room turned on, it was very dim. Great if you like romance, but terrible if you're trying to read. Removing the shade from the one table lamp helped a bit.
- No microwave or refrigerator.
- Continental breakfast includes only pastries, fruit, and coffee.
- Valet parking costs $25 per night!
- Staff is efficient but not overly friendly or helpful.
- The beautiful little courtyard was overrun by smokers. If you don't smoke, stay away from the courtyard.
- The bathroom door is only about 20-inches wide. Even a skinny guy has to turn sideways to get in. The bathroom is adequate once you get in.

OK, enough with the CONS, here are the PROS:
- Fairly quiet. I heard coughing in the next room, but no outside noises (one advantage to NOT having a window, I guess)
- LOCATION: you're right on the corner of Jackson Square near the river and in the heart of the French Quarter. Leave you car in the valet parking lot and walk everywhere. Bourbon street is a few blocks away - you can get to it easily, but you won't be bothered by any of it's noise or rowdiness back at the hotel.
- Free WiFi in the room.
- Coffee maker in room
- Ceramic coffee mugs and water glasses are glass - no plastic cups here

After being very dissapointed in the French Market Inn 5 years ago when we visited NOLA, we were hesitant to book another similar hotel. We actually had reservations at the Hilton but decided to cancel them and try Place d'Arms based on the good reviews. We are very happy we made the decision we did. The rooms were large , clean and quiet. Our room had a balcony outside of our windows right on Chartres overlooking Jackson Square to the right. The courtyard was beautiful with all the fountains, statues and plants. The continental breakfast was small but the coffee was great. Staff was very helpful and courteous. EVERYTHING is in walking distance. Cafe Du Maude is one block away so I could walk there and bring some coffee back before we really got the day started. Price was more than fair for what we got. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to NOLA. It's so much better than a national chain!

I booked this hotel well in advance and took advantage of the saver price direct from the hotel but you can not cancel or amend your booking. We were given a larger room than I had booked which was a bonus. The standard of the room was excellent with free wi-fi and a large bath tub. The hotel is very clean and in a brilliant location. The only downside was the breakfast. All they had was cheap orange juice and croissants or sticky buns / cakes. If they could improve on this, it would be a wonderful place. I would still recommend this hotel though. Parking is very expensive here, look around we managed to park for $10 for 24 hours nearby.

We stayed at the Place D'Armes in early September for 3 nights. Our room was above the main reception with its own balcony and t looked out onto St Ann Street. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, the maid service was daily and they did a good job leaving clean towles every day even when we didn't need them. The bath was small in lenght and depth but as we showered it was irrelevant. The hotel do offer a free continental breakfast but we did not try it as we prefer to go out and about to find somewhere local to eat. The courtyard area was pleasant and quiet, the pool is quite small but looked nice although we did not use it as we spent all our time enjoying the city.
The hotel is in a superb location minutes walk from Bourbon Street and Jackson Square, we heard no noise on an evening from Bourbon Street.
The only slight drawback was the valet parking which was $25 per night, however I do not know the area and would not know where else to park so would rather know my car was safe although I would have preffered to have payed less!
I would recommend this hotel, the room was great, the location perfect.
