This place is different from your average hotel. We stayed for 12 nights in the owner's suite. It has enough space and is decorated very nicely, although a few things I didn't like. One was the only tv was in the bedroom, also the only window in the place was in the bedroom, this made the living area very dark. The smallness of the bathroom did not bother me but the shower could have used a good scrub. Other than that, the room was great. We loved the balcony and sat out there quite often. We had our dog with us and she loved being out there also. Although I cleared bringing my dog on email before we came, somehow I got the impression they were surprised when we showed up with her but they did not say anything. You may want to call them beforehand to find out if pets are allowed. Now the best part of staying here are the people that work here. Super friendly and helpful. We ate the breakfast almost every morning and it was great. They don't serve until 9:30 though. The neighborhood was great and seemed safe for walking at night. Everyone says how close the French Quarter is and it is not too far, but if you are out of shape or just tired of walking a bus stop is right down the street or a cab will cost you around $6. This is a super fun place to stay. Do not expect room service, they don't do that, but expect a neat place, great neighborhood and wonderful hosts.
