“Great Hotel, Great Location!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We recently took a girls trip to New Orleans and could not have had more fun! This hotel was located very close to restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Every night we sat on the 2nd floor balcony and just people watched. The city just comes alive in the evening. The front desk staff was super helpful and the room was very clean. We had the best time of our lives and will be back!!

Great hotel, comfortable, clean rooms in an amazing location. Clean exterior and cute courtyard as you walk in the front, locked gates.

If you are coming to New Orleans to hear music, this is the place that you want to be. The best music flows out of the many local clubs and great music is available right on the corners. We were told by one of our tour guides that Frenchman's street is where the locals come to play music. There are some interesting places to eat and it is within walking distance to the French Quarter and the French Market which includes Cafe Du Monde.

Room Tip: No elevator so if you don't/can't walk upstairs request a first floor room.

Our room was right next to the street and it was very hard to sleep at night with all the music going on across the street until about 4 am (no exaggeration). We did ask to be moved and they were kind enough to move us. We could still hear the music at night, but it was more tolerable and we were able to sleep.

The bathroom in our first unit (Room 207) was not cleaned very well at all. There was a ring in the toilet, mildew around the jacuzzi jets and the shower curtain had mildew all over the bottom and it was torn at the top in several spots.

The room we were moved to had a clean bathroom except the shower curtain still had mildew at the bottom and needed washing. But it was not as bad as the previous shower curtain.

The location was very close to the Cable Cars and easy to get all over the French Quarter.

The staff were nice & accommodating and the pool and hot tub were nice & very quiet and private.

So, if you want to party or listen to loud music most of the night and can put up with a less than spotless bathroom, this is probably a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a Room in the back away from the street.

I stayed at Frenchmen's 519 (519 Frenchmen's St.) in the heart of the French Quarter. It's a fantastic Festiva Resort property and it was cracking awesome! The condo we had looked newly renovated. There were hardwood floors throughout, a really cool bathroom with an unbelievable glass sink, a wonderfully furnished living room and this great full-sized kitchen. There was music outside our building every night, but instead of it being a distraction, it was a pleasure and part of the atmosphere of NOLA. The only downsides were the unexpected $12 a day parking fee and a pool that contained green water. In general, though, the place was great and N.O., well, what can I say?! I want to move there!!!!!!!!

This is by far the best hotel ever!!!! We went down to Louisiana for a girls weekend getaway and I must admit when we first got there we were a little scared. Once we got settled in we were amazed at the night life and the amount of love that we received from the natives. They all were so helpful and caring in insuring that we had a wonderful trip and found everything that we needed. The front desk staff was very helpful the entire time and so were the housekeepers. Everything was so clean and the location is prime for those that like to party. When I go back I know for a fact that this is where I am going to stay.

A block or less from about six great live music clubs with no cover. Pool, Jacuzzi, kitchen, jacuzzi tub, two TVs and very clean.

Complaints? The sofa bed wasn't very comfy..good things the kids were the only ones sleeping there. The toilet had issues that we dealt with and never let the staff know about, but it was a bit of a drag to remember to hold the flapper down. But our bad fr not bringing it up, too busy having fun.

Only other complaint was the power went out for 5 hours and nobody came to check and see how we were, update us, pass out flashlights, etc.. We sent the 13 year old down and she got the last flashlight. So the jacuzzi didn't get hot again for about 72 hours. First world problems? Sure, but I was paying first world prices so I would have appreciated the staff being a bit more proactive on this front, instead of us continually asking and feeling like big moaners.

Room Tip: Towards the back if you don't like the noise.

We were only in town for one night. The room was nice, plenty of room, and clean. I was worried when we went in for the night that we'd be kept up because Frenchmen was so loud (it's NOLA, expect it right). Once I closed the door, I didn't hear a thing. We were on the "back" side away from the street. The only minus was that the room was kind of warm during the night. I couldn't find the thermostat, but it wasn't HOT. I'd stay here again!

Room Tip: 204 was our room. It was away from the street side, so we didn't hear much if any noise.
