“Just so-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2011

I keep thinking I must not have been at the same hotel everyone else is writing about. After much research on trip advisor and seeing such great reviews I decided to stay at the Prince Conti. I booked directly from the hotel so when I saw the room, my first reaction was "wonder what the room would look like if I had gone through a travel site?" Some may say charming and quaint - I would say "tired, worn and needed attention"- at least our room.
I know you don't go to New Orleans to stay in your room and we didn't. But the times that you are in your room - it should be comfortable. Our front door was warped and wouldn't shut unless we slammed it. Same for the bathroom door which also had a door handle/cover that needed to be reattached. I can't believe that housekeeping wouldn't let maintenance know that the doors were sticking or that a guest wouldn't have brought it to their attention before I did upon checking out. My guess is they just don't care.
Walls are so thin that we might as well been rooming with our next door neighbors since we could hear every word they said. You could hear people's conversations in their rooms as you walked down the hall. There is no space in the bathroom. Only a pedestal sink and a ledge for placing toiletries; a bathtub and a toilet.
other good and the bad:
We were allowed to check in very early - very nice. We got there at 9:30AM and they had our room before 1PM (not supposed to check-in until 4)
Internet is very slow.
I will say the room was very clean and I really appreciated that. The room just needed some updating - new comforters, new TV (not that we watched it).
Great location in the quarter - no noise from Bourbon Street. Felt safe.
Best part of the stay was the Cafe Conti. It does have a great breakfast and great prices.
Great vending machines on 2nd floor.
I think the rooms on the 2nd floor must be nicer than the 3rd floor (where we were). One side of the hall has only brick so you wouldn't have half the noise. Whole floor just seemed to look better even from the hall.
All in all, I probably would choose some place else to stay next time. I want to give it a great rating like everyone else, but just don't see where they are coming from.

I had the best shrimp, spinach and cheddar omlet I've ever tasted this morning. The shrimp were large and fresh as were the other ingredients. The potatoes were cooked perfectly with peppers onions and deliciously spiced. The coffee was dark and rich just as I like it. The service was prompt and friendly.

I stayed at the Prince Conti 2/27-3/3. We arrived and the rooms weren't avail so they held our bags and we hit Bourbon St. This was the perfect location to party and come home to a good night sleep. Even though we were a block away from the festivities we didn't here no noise. Our room was nicely cleaned and cozy and we settled right in. The only thing I would say that the hotel can use is more lighting and lighter curtains and bedspread to make the room appear bigger but besides that the beds were comfortable. The cleaning people were wonderful. I loved the fact that at night you had to use your key to enter the hotel and the staff remembered our faces and were nice enough to open the door for us. The manager, front desk and concierge desk were the most sweetest and helpful staff I have ever met. They advised me on all the great eatery and was helpful with directions etc. I cant tell you how they made me feel like I was right at home. In NYC , were always in a rush and some hotels make you seem as if your just a #, but here I felt like family. I want to thank everyone for a wonderful first time Mardi Gras Louisiana experience. The mgr will remember who we are because we set off the smoke alarm with my flat iron LOL. I wil be staying here for Essence Festival 2011 and coming back in 2012 for Mardi Gras again. Before, I forget please eat in the hotel. The Breakfast was the BOMB!!!!.

The Prince Conti Hotel proved to be one of the better places I have stayed during many trips to New Orleans. Valet parking was incredibly easy and the service provided by the hotel for parking was outstanding. we stayed in a suite and the rooms were exceptionally well care for and very clean. there were tvs in both rooms and the suite was very spacious. the hotel was very centrally located and close to everything. My return trips will be booked at this hotel in the future. We stayed during the first part of the Madi Gras season so were a little worried about the noise but it proved to be very quiet.

Stayed at the Prince Conti the week before Marti Gras this hotel is a GREAT location if you want to hang out and party on Bourbon St. The staff is awesome from the front desk to the bell staff and concierge; one great perk of the hotel is they offer valet parking (this is huge in the French Quarter) at a reasonable price. Highly recommended!

The Prince Conti is located just half a block from Bourbon Street, but it remarkably quiet (we heard little street noise, though the walls between rooms are a bit thin). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small, but we understand that space is at a premium in that area. The prices are reasonable for that location, but they vary dramatically from weekends to weekdays. Also, you will pay $25 a day to park. Our major problem was that hot water was hard to come by in the bathroom, which was in need of some serious upgrading. It is a good place to say, on balance.
