The Hotel de L'eau Vive was a neat little place to stay in New Orleans. It was tucked away in the middle of a busy street. You can walk to Canal Street, Street Car, the French Quarter, WWII Museum, etc. Conveniently located, if not the most charming of streets. It had the feel of more of an apartment than a hotel. Exposed brick and high ceilings created an open, urban, lofty feel.
We shared the hotel with another little family and it was room enough for 5 or 6 easily.
The main drawbacks of the hotel were a funky bathroom that was not only oddly designed with a lavender circular tub and domed ceiling had just a bit of unappealing mildew that we could all do without. But, other than that - everything was clean. The kitchen was well stocked. The couches and carpet were not brand new - but were clean and functional.
On the downside, the wireless access code never seemed to work right, parking was an expensive nightmare, and the Fri-Sun "breakfast" was a joke of store bought croissants. Not what I'd like to eat while I'm in this culinary destination city! However, good coffee was always available in the lobby. The pool is tiny, but absolutely authentically adorable for New Orleans. I'd stay there again.
