It was hard to find a clean hotel with smoking rooms in the French Quarter so we opted to stay a block from the Quarter at the Best Western on Magazine street which was right across Canal Street into the quarter. We had no problems with the location and getting around. We valet parked for $28 a day and left the car in the garage the entire weekend. We were in close proximity of everything and walked everywhere. We always felt safe even after midnight. The hotel was elegant yet small and historic. The staff was very friendly. We were in smoking rooms on the 10th floor right next to each other in the corner of the hotel. The rooms were very clean and well furnished with safes and mini fridges. Our coffee maker was missing the pot, but we didn't care enough to call to get one. Our room 1005 had some AC issues. The room was HOT. But, our friends' room next door had a fan in it to dry an area of carpet that had been cleaned so we borrowed their fan the entire weekend since their AC was VERY cold and we were perfectly fine. We loved the room so much that we didn't want to move. It was huge!!! It was great place to stay especially on a budget. The rooms were only $107 a night for a weekend. Great deal!
