All the charm of new Orleans
This is the cutest little taste of new Orleans i could have asked for. I wanted to stay somewhere with the charm of NO. This hotel has it. Corey, Leonard, and Eric were so nice and helpful. There is a nice courtyard with plenty of seating near the pool or off in your corner section. Our room wasn't huge but so cute with the brick wall and the iron beds. You are walking distance to just about everything in the French quarter. The river is across the road, bourbon street is 3 blocks away. Plenty of shops and restaurants right there. Paid parking is across from the hotel. Everything is so close that we walked everywhere. We loved it here.

Check in was easy and simple. Room had a great view and was clean. Very small for the 3 of us but since it was only for 2 nights we were ok. Location was great so we didnt have to rent a car.

8/10 Very good

Overall it was a very good accomodation. Quiet. Bed was comfortable. Courtyard is very nice. Staff were very helpful and very pleasant. Our room needs some repair or renovation. One of the towel handles was unscrewed. Bathtub has chipped corner. The drain on the tub also had chipped.
