We came in on Megabus and we were able to check in early. The pool pump was broken so we couldn`t swim but that`s ok because that`s not why we were there. Also, the lady that gave us our prearrival info (Wendy) explained everything before we arrived. I have seen other reviews about the place being run-down. Well yes the benches out front were broken and this place is as old as the rest of New Orleans but this place is amazing! An architectural delight! We stayed in the 2 bedroom loft and it is simply beautiful. There are two bathrooms, and the upstairs shower is not for tall people because it has a sharp roof/ceiling angle so the showerhead is low but the downstairs shower is fine.The pictures on the website simply do not do it justice. It is absolutely charming with the wooden staircases and the windows. The plants in the courtyard and out front were in bloom and lovely. Also, did I mention spotless? The place was so nice and clean. Nothing was out of place. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook some meals and save a little cash. But, the location is great, too. We didn`t have to rent a car. We walked all around the French Quarter and took streetcars to everything else. It was safe and comfortable. We were able to walk around at night and back to our hotel since it is only one block from Bourbon Street. But it is so quiet! I can`t wait to go back!
