“Beware Non-Smokers”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Nothing bad to say about the hotel, except the smoking. the courtyard/grotto with the pool was very pretty, but when people smoked in it (which was 100% of the time we were there) it was unbearable for a non-smoker as there was not enough air movement to flush it out. People literally smoked while standing around in the pool. We saw a family with 2 small children go down for a swim, and leave before the kids even got wet. Smokers in the south are not very considerate generally anyway, but in this little pool grotto, it was the worse I've ever seen it anywhere, and we travel worldwide. I did mention it to the bartender, but he just brushed it off.

I think the south needs to look at smoking rules in other major cities in the North and implement some generally, but specific to the hotel, the only way to open the pool area to non-smokers really is to make it non-smoking.

This hotel is very good but not the spectacular hotel that it's rating would imply.

The Pros: Right in the middle of the French Quarter with the best noise cancelling windows I've ever experienced. The staff was friendly, the whole place was clean. and the beds were extremely comfortable

The Cons: Breakfast had a number of choices; all of them unhealthy. Cereals were all the sweetened kind; even the oatmeal was sweetened. There were no healthy options for people who can't eat dairy (even the peanut butter was sweetened), no whole grain breads, and limited ripe fruit. This could all be solved economically by, for example, having real (not packaged) oatmeal or healthy, fresh bread.
While there was a lovely courtyard with a small but inviting pool, it was inhabited by smokers, making non-smokers most unwelcome.
The price was quite high for a hotel with no amenities. Basically you are paying for the location; combined with hermetically sealed quiet....which is no small thing.

This hotel was genuinely outstanding. It is quite, comfortable, far enough form Bourbon St to not hear much street noise, close enough to not forget where you left it after a night well spent in the French Quarter. The service is wonderful. The bar is a great place to begin or end an evening. And you could NOT ask for a more comfortable room or bed.

What you could ask for .... is a room away from the elevator as the service carts clunk in and out of it all night.

Room Tip: You do NOT want to be near the elevator. If they give you a room near it and you don't sleep lik...

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The location was great for getting around the quarter. I liked that it was not directly in bourbon street so it was quieter. The drinks were good and the small pool area was attractive. The room was very nice and the bed very comfy. The breakfast wasn't much to talk about so we went elsewhere. Overall it was good for a night or two if you want a place a little quieter.

On Conti between Bourbon St and Royal St was just perfect. Bourbon Street's noise never impacted our stay. The woman at the front desk were so helpful - never felt like I was bothering them with all my questions about the city. Plenty of good restaurants within a 3-5 minute walk. Decent free breakfast and nice workout room. Would definitely stay there again.

Efficient & accommodating staff; quickly handled a crowd at check-in & letting us drop car/bags pre-check-in so we could get to a meeting. Despite location between Bourbon & Royal, room was completely quiet (great soundproofing on the windows). Attractive public areas & rooms; all rooms seem to have view of landscaped pool courtyard or the huge oak in the back; smallish closet but plenty of drawers. Housekeeping consistently thorough & unobtrusive. Only tiny complaint I could make would be the need of a shelf or better-placed hook in the bathroom for my toiletries kit.

This hotel was great. I had never been to New Orleans before and had high expectation of this trip and hotel. All were met. The location is ideal because its off of Bourbon St. so it is quiet, but just a few steps away is the best time ever! They give you free drink coupons upon check in for their bar and it was great. The bartenders were entertaining and the free drinks were a perfect way to start a vacation! The rooms were quite comfy as well.
