I rent my house in the French Quarter out during the Mardi Gras season and this year I decided rather than stay with friends outside the Quarter I'd get a room. Three weeks ago I booked the room and got a great price for the time of year. I wasn't expecting much-just a place to sleep.
What a nice surprise. I've stayed in a lot of hotels in the Quarter and this was the quietest one ever. No screaming drunk kids at 4am. No traffic noise. There's even a patio just outside the room I stayed in and...silence. It was awesome. It was Mardi Gras weekend and it was still quiet. The room is small-think Manhattan hotel room size-but it was spotless clean. I was actually told I had the smallest room in the hotel (R6) and I was still happy with the room. The staff was helpful, kind and attentive.
The only two downfalls I can think of are A. if you can't handle stairs this is not the place for you unless you specifically ask for a ground floor room. B. parking is very limited. Save yourself the hassle and park at the lots next to the river and walk the two short blocks to your hotel. It's $25 a day that way and it's a security monitored lot close to everything.
Seriously folks-this was a great French Quarter hotel experience.
