“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

The rooms were average nothing special. Pillows are too small. Our room was at the far end window facing Bourbon St. I could faintly hear the noise outside but wasn't bad at all. The rooms lack sound proofing though it is very easy to hear others coming and going and esp the slam of the door. I typically dont care about what the hotel has to offer but I found staying for 3 days I was wanting a workout room, pool or jacuzzi. The staff wasn't particularly nice or rude. We weren't told where the vending machines were or how to get to our room upon check in. The restaurant had good food but nothing special and was overpriced. We chose to stay at Prince Conti because the price and location were the best for what we were looking for. It is very easy to walk all over New Orleans' French Quarter

I have stayed in this hotel twice in the past 6 months. It's in a very convenient location. The employees are all very friendly and helpful, especially Ms. Ava, at the front desk.

Room Tip: The jr. suites can help keep the cost of meals down. We had a great dinner one night and had so much...

We arrived early due to an am flight. Our intent was to just drop off our luggage then explore the French Quarter until check in time. When we arrived, Ava (who was fabulous!) at the front desk said that we could check in right away if we wanted a room slightly different from what we had reserved. We declined, so she took out cell phone number and said she would call us as soon as our room was ready and we could still check in early. She called about a hour later and we were thrilled with the service. The location is perfect, the rates are reasonable and the room was great! We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this hotel to others!

I wrote a ;note of commendation after 8 of us stayed at the Prince Conti in December. 2 had to stay elsewhere. It was friends and family from Wa., Ohio and Baton Rouge. The physical facility is very nice, with nice rooms and hallways and lobby, a good restaurant and parking. The staff were unbelievably good, from the front desk people to the parking to the restaurant. We even ran into some of the staff in the French Quarter and had a good time visiting with them. It is nice that they obviously really liked their work at the Prince Conti. A very positive experience and still reasonable. Also, right in the heart of everything. We were able to walk everywhere. Many thanks to wonderful management and staff! Pat Coryell PS: we did have a dog with us and since they aren't allowed inside he had a good place to stay in the covered pickup bed, was safe there and we took him with us outside, as appropriate.

I love this hotel. I've stayed here for most of my visits to New Orleans and have yet to have a bad experience. Friendly staff, clean hotel, and excellent location (close enough to Bourbon but not too close)!

Though my family always stayed at the old Downtowner (now the Inn on Bourbon by Ramada) at Bourbon and Toulouse, I have found a new oasis in a city of fun yet chaotic noise and commotion, and it's half a block from Bourbon Street.

The Prince Conti is a GORGEOUS old Southern and very classy hotel with more charm and characted than you would ever imagine looking at its rather austere facade on Conti Street.

The rooms are very spacious and have 15' ceilings and drapes, the furniture is a bit "dated" but very clean, and by that one wouldn't expect modern stylings in such an old building with so much character. The furniture fits the architecture. Even the doors to the rooms are quqite beautiful with their ornately carved woodwork grilles. The bathrooms are newly and beautifully restored and fitted with marble, ceramic tile and gleaming white fixtures.

Now a note on the size of the rooms: most are what I would consider a very spacious room, and no doubt the ceiling height helps this. But they have a handful of "petite" rooms, and they are not kidding! They are smaller than the cabin on a cruise ship. You step in the door, you can set your luggage down and either step into the bathroom or sit on the bed, not much more in all honesty! And the price differences between them and the other normal rooms is not that great.

There are also two restaurants, Cafe Conti and the Bombay Club (the latter of which is pricey but very elegant and serves true and authentic Creole cuisine). Literally right across the street, like 30 feet from the front door, is a fantastic German restaurant called Jager-Haus. Delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner is a bit pricey but you can get a coupon on the tourist map at the front desk of the hotel) and the other, a true French restaurant of the old world charm and order: Broussard's.

The staff is marvelously helpful and friendly, from Cindy at the front desk and Van at t he Bellman's stand during the days, to the ladies on the night shift (I apologize but forgot their names!) and even Mr. Valentino, the owner and manager who truly made me feel welcome and valued as a new guest.

The location could not be better, and the major sights to see and tour are either walking distance or available via taxi, horse and carriage or arrangements by the very helpful and capable desk and concierge staff. The Conti Museum of New Orleans History is only two blocks from the front doors of the hotel in the opposite direction from Bourbon Streetm and two blocks beyond that is the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which is the former St. Anthony of Padua French Mortuary Chapel ating from 1827 and also containing the Shrine of St. Jude, on the corner of Conti and Rampart Street. It is a small and unassuming church but extremely rich in New Orleans/Yellow Fever Epedemic and Archdiocesan history. Behind the Church, across Basin Street and inside the white concrete wall, is St. Louis Cemetery #1, the oldest and one of the famous above ground cemeteries in New Orleans, and also the final resting place of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveaux (if you're into that).

The other beautiful thing about the PCH's location is that, though literally half a block from Bourbon Street, when one enters their room at night, it is QUIET as opposed to those hotels right on Bourbon. A real retreat and place of beauty and serenity.

My only constructive comments, NOT complaints, are that 1) the mattress in my room was very soft. I only say this because I prefer a firmer mattress due to chronic back issues, but I slept rather well, and 2) the lamp shades might need replacing soon due to the carelessness of past guests and just years of use, and by that I am referring more to the interior linings, and 3) they should get firmer, overstuffed feather or other types of pillows. I don't care for those thin foam pillows that really don't breathe well.

The A/C in each room is WONDERFUL as are the large-sized ceiling fans. Hey- it is New Orleans and one of the hottest and most humid climates in the country! Regarding the price, I am not making the salary I once was (who is anymore?) so a lesser cost would have really helped me out alot, but it is what it is and I did have a good time. I judge hotels by the following criteria: 1) location, 2) my feeling of safety, 3) condition of the property and rooms and, most importantly: 4) would my mother stay there? She would in spades at this one!

The hotel is perfection and one would be doing themselves very well to stay there and give it a try. (Well, perfection except for the juvenile-acting drunks staggering in from Bourbon Street at 4 and 5 AM!)

THANK YOU Prince Conti staff and Mr. Valentino for a simply fantastic and quite-pleasantly surprising experience. I have only been home a few hours and am already thinking about when I can sneak back down there for a few days and stay at the Prince COnti and enjoy the sights, sounds (and tastes!) of Nouvelle Orleans again.

Room Tip: 1) do not get one of the "petite" rooms unless you really love indescribably small sleepin...

We took advantage of a super low rate from a "Papa Noel Special" for the month of December.
We checked in late on Christmas Day and the staff were so pleasant and nice. We stayed on the second floor in the back annex and I would recommend that room to anyone. We basically had our own floor and the room was huge, but without the noise you might expect from being so close to Bourbon st. The front desk gave us coupons for the breakfast restaurant and the staff was so accommodating. On the last day they let us check out and leave our bags at the front desk while we went out sight-seeing before we left on our cruise ship.

Room Tip: If you are a couple , ask to stay in the back annex in a King Bed Deluxe room (only one King size b...
