“Great Location, Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Nothing overly amazing about this hotel. Rooms were a tad on the outdated side, but I believe that is the "vibe" the hotel is striving for. Free parking was a nice plus, but the main thing about this hotel...LOCATION!!!

1/2 block from the trolley station, which will take you ALL over the city. 1 block from the flea market. 1 block from Frenchmen Street, TONS of killer restaurants and great jazz bars. Nothing insanely wild, but def a great chill place to have some drinks, relax, and hear some great jazz. Especially great if you are not into the whole clubbing scene.

Kitchen was standard, jacuzzi tub in bathroom, pool was actually quite interesting...It was located on 2nd floor, with a cool fountain in it with palm trees all around it. But there was no roof or anything, so was actually pretty cool hanging out in there at night.

Only negative I will throw out there, we went with my wife's parents, so naturally they had the bedroom and we were on the sofa sleeper. Thing was not what most would consider comfy, but we made it.

Stop worrying and book this hotel, you will not be let down!!

Within walking distance of the French Quarter. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. It's an older hotel, but the room was very clean. It had a jacuzzi tub, two tv's and a small kitchen. Both the bed and sofa bed were comfortable.The air conditioner worked great. There is a trolley station across the street. We did not have any trouble with parking or hot water. We will stay here again!!

Located at the river's end on beautiful Esplanade Avenue, you are right across the street from the old U.S. Mint and Farmer's Market/old Slave Market, and to the left is the Red Trolley (over the wall) that you can take all the way to Harrah's or stop in-between. (The Red Trolley is not the same as the streetcar.)
(Exact change $1.25 good for 2 hours.)
To your right looking towards Esplanade is Frenchman Street (walk over to the Fire Station and you'll see it).. cool restaurants and great night music!
If you get tired, retreat to the large balcony overlooking Esplanade Avenue and enjoy a berverage. Easy to meet other friendly travelers there.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 15 are stunning due to a glass wall overlooking the courtyard. The front bedroom win...

This is hotel is perfectly located in the French Quarter. It is within walking distance to everything that you want to do in the area but far enough so that it is relatively quiet. It's an older hotel but quite charming.

We had the best stay at Hotel de la Monnaie! It is close enough to the French Quarter, yet removed enough to be peaceful! Close to Frenchman Street and the French Market.

The room was a one bedroom with a living room, and galley style kitchen. Perfect for morning coffee and cereal.

The balconies overlooking the courtyard an wading pool were very nice, and gave my husband a place to smoke conveniently outside.

The staff, especially Camille, was very helpful, especially arranging a bus tour for us.

We will definitely stay here again if we return to NOLA!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 5th floor, so we had a great view of the city, and even the river!

We stayed at this hotel the week of June 22, 2012. We had a 2 bedroom unit on the 5th floor which was very nice. It is on the outskirts of the French Quarter, an ideal location traveling with kids, no loud partying outside at night. The trolley is basicly across the street & the French Market a 2 minute walk. Plenty of options for meals/music in the area. I was worried that I had made a mistake bring an 11 & 12 year old to New Orleans, no reason to worry- it is very family friendly! The hotel pool looks really small in the photos they have online, but it wasn't bad. The kids were able to swim in it & enjoyed it. Free parking in the basement of the hotel was a definite plus! Front Desk staff were very helpful & HK staff were very good. I left a fleece throw blanket behind & called to see if it was found, they offered to mail it back to me free of charge which I thought was very nice. If I head back to New Orleans in the future will definitely try to stay here again!

This quiet lil hotel is walking distance to the action of the French Quarter, but has a small community feel. It is one block from the Farmers Market, one block from Frenchman street with local Jazz clubs. This hotel is our favorite, must stay place, prices are reasonable, and the rooms are a decent size with a living room, kitchen and bedroom, 1 - 2 bedrooms. Inside terrace overlooking fountain or pool, you really feel safe and secure! They also have off street parking free for guests.
