Low-key travelers should ask for a hushed interior room deep in the property.

"Covering almost a block in the Quarter, this hotel is like a little village with its own shops, cafés, courtyards, and personalities."

Ask to be as far away from Bourbon Street as possible to avoid street noise.

"Hotel suites with exposed brick may not be something you're used to, but it's part of that N'awlins flavor."

"This is a good alternative to the huge convention hotels; you're just steps from the major downtown attractions and the Convention Center, and Harrah's New Orleans Casino is a five-minute walk." Full review

"It provides a vintage warehouselike atmosphere that runs counter to the cool corporate look of the neighboring commercial giants hereabouts." Full review

"Much of the hotel still retains historic elements from the building's 19th-century past, including brick walls, wood-plank floors, and exposed piping." Full review
