The hotel is ideally located, on the edge of the french quarter, so easy to access everything but a little more relaxed than Bourbon street. It also backs onto Frenchman street which actually has far better restaurants and music than the French Quarter. That said we said in the rooms in the main house which front onto the street and you can still hear noise from the street in the night, but anyone coming to NOLA for peace and quite is in the wrong place to start with.
The rooms was lovely, it had a huge bed and was furnished with a real feel for antebellum New Orleans charm. We had a suite with a bedroom and a sitting room area, which was very spacious. We also had the extra room for a child, which was great, a fabulous querky room. I would say though that even by our European standards the bathroom was absolutely tiny and the shower pressure was pretty poor - but these old places weren't made for modern plumbing. If you value home comforts over authentic charm then they do have some purpose built rooms around the pool which would probably be better.
The pool is heated which is lovely after a hard day's sight seeing. They don't have any breakfast facilities in the hotel but there are plenty of cafe's near by.
Finally the service is fantastic, both Rene and Jonathan couldn't have been more helpful with planning our trip and all of the staff helped with sorting out a package I needed delivered.
