We stayed at St Philip for a month in July/August 2013. When We first arrived, I noticed the marking on the wall left in honour of Katrina. I thought it was such a nice tribute. We were greeted by the friendly faces of June and Tyler who offered to assist in taking our luggage upstairs (top floor) to our room. I liked the fact St Phillip has no elevator, as did my toned legs after our stay! As you walk through the security coded doors, you KNOW you're in New Orleans by the quaint letter boxes sporting a Fleur-de-lys on each of them, the political and humorous New Orleans artwork along the corridor and the gorgeous, tranquil garden with a lovely fountain displaying a large crawfish. Magnificent! Our room was breathtaking when we first entered and was well worth the climb up the stairs. The decor and general feel was homely but very modern. The bed was comfy, air con in the bedroom and open plan kitchen area worked great as did all of the amenities. The shower took some getting used to, soon realising we had to run it a bit until it ran warm, but considering everything in the Qtr is old, including the pipes, it was no issue. A few days in I met the owner, Craig, who greeted me with a gentlemanly hug. The position is perfect with a short walk to the Mississippi (literally around the corner) or a longer stroll through the French Qtr towards the sounds of the streetcars on Canal Street. Our stay at St Philip was warm and accommodating and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a central place to stay in the Qtr!!
