Hotel de la Monnaie has two very important things going for it. Parking and location. The parking is in a garage which is gated at night. Parking in the garage is FREE! Free parking in the French Quarter! Amazing!
The location of the hotel is fantastic. There is a street car stop right across the street. The French Market is a block away! The hotel is on Esplanade street, which has an exit off highway 10, so it's easy to access if you are driving.
The decor in the rooms is a little dated. And the beds are a firm. BUT, everything is very clean. The bathrooms in the two rooms I've stayed in have both been very large, which is great. I love having a bedroom and living room to lounge in after a long day of walking around NOLA.
The best deals on this hotel can be found if you are a time share owner looking to buy an escape week. We bought 7 nights at this property for under $400.
At one point, we were called on our hotel phone and asked if we'd like to buy our own week at Hotel de la Monnaie. The deal was great and frankly, I was very tempted, but I said no. The lady was very chill about it, no hard sell here, and we were not asked again the rest of the trip.
