My boyfriend and I stayed here for Jazzfest weekend and had a wonderful experience. I was a little concerned since the reviews here were old and after the hurricane; however, I was pleasantly surprised by the property. The location was perfect, right near Bourbon Street as well as a few steps from Frenchmen Street, and also was an easy walk to the Fairgrounds for Jazzfest (we're New Yorkers, so walking doesn't bother us at all and it was the best option because the cab lines are crazy!) The room was very clean and the bathroom had been updated. We were on the ground floor and facing the front of the building, but the bedroom was in the back so we really didn't hear much street noise and felt perfectly safe. The kitchen was small, but we really only needed the fridge. Housekeeping doesn't come every day, so if that's something that you must have, then a hotel is probably a better option for you. The price was also far less than anything else I could find in that area online, so it's an exceptional value. They do also have off-street parking for $18/day, which we felt was a good deal since we didn't have to worry about the car. Overall, if you're looking for a great location and a clean and safe place to sleep, this is a great spot. No, it's not a 5-star resort, but you're not going to find that for under $200/night anywhere.
