My husband and I spent 4 nights here. We loved the neighborhood vibe and the walking distance to Frenchman St. Room 2 is small with a small, well lit , modern bath. We really appreciated the shared lounge as we were able to sit and drink wine with fellow guests one evening. Breakfast was a slow, casual, but tasty affair. The bartender loaned us his umbrella for a rainy day and that is the kind of nice touch we really appreciate!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was conveniently located to the French Quarter in a safe neighborhood, but not on a loud or busy street. We kept our car parked all weekend and walked everywhere we needed to go. The food served downstairs was delicious, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Comfortable, well appointed room, delicious hot breakfast Saturday morning and fresh pastries and fruit on Sunday. We were overall very pleased with our experience here and will definitely be making a return visit.
