I stayed there while I was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. The area that it is in seems kind of shady, but after being there a few days we realized it was not that bad. We would usually walk to the French Quarter during the daytime and get a cab back, which is only a couple of bucks. It is right between the Garden District and the French Quarter, so you can get to either one fast. It was definitely an interesting place to stay because the building has so much history. I feel like I got more of an idea of what New Orleans is by staying in this old orphanage instead of a recently built 5 star hotel. There was one woman of the staff that seemed like she was always having a bad day, but the rest were okay. The rooms were pretty clean, although I saw a woman cleaning our bathroom...she used the toilet brush for everything, which was kind of disturbing...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- St. Vincent Guest House is Under New Management!!! As of December 1, 2013 the guest house will be operated under a new management team that is dedicated to improving both the aesthetics and overall condition of the entire establishment. Steps are being taken to bring this beautiful and historical building to its fullest potential and offer our guests a wonderful experience and comfortable stay. St. Vincent's is not a full service hotel, it is more of hostel/quaint budget hotel that is both economical and located in one of the best areas in the city of New Orleans (the Lower Garden District). First opened in 1861 as a orphanage, the building has a distinct and colorful history that is worth exploring. The lobby is adorned with photos that reflect the history and show the building's usage over the last 100+ years. Each room has an individual decor and design scape that will make you feel as though you are walking into an era of Nola history gone by... The grounds are well kept and offer several areas for outdoor seating for morning coffee, an evening cigar or just great conversations... Our staff have been trained and are dedicated to providing each guest with the highest level of customer services with courtesy and a smile. Although there are not a great deal of amenities available, every guest will find that the Guest House offers a tremendous value for the price. We have both private sleeping rooms as well as dormitories available. There have been several negative reviews that have been posted in the past and those reviews have been duly noted and taken into consideration for action as we move towards improvements... Likewise, there have been several positive reviews from guests who have enjoyed their stay and the experience at the Guest House; and for that we are thankful! We look forward to this new era at St. Vincent's and welcome each and every guest with open arms... ... more less
