I must admit that I was a bit hesitant to book this place based on the pictures on their website. However, those pics really don't do it justice!
Our diamond room was very large, with high ceilings, a comfortable bed and a huge bathroom. The amenities provided were much better than in any hotel (that fridge you see in their picture: it's full with free goodies!), the guys were very nice and the common outdoor area is a very nice place to spend an hour resting if you have the time.
We wish we had spent more days at the Sunburst Inn, also because it's located quite close to the French Quarter, and more importantly Frenchman Street, as well as many cafes. It's also a safe area. We'll be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The house is a Victorian style built in 1905 and has all the original floors and chandeliers with 12 foot ceilings. We are just 5 blocks for the French Quarter and 3 blocks from the famous Frenchman St. where there is live music and great dining. The Street Car line that travels along the river is 5 blocks away and there are also great little cafes on the Conners from our place. The Marigny neighborhood was vote a top ten place to live in 2010 by the ADA. We like to say that we are far enough but close enough to the madness of the Quarter. ... more less
