The balcony rooms over Nola's most vomited-upon boulevard offer guests the opportunity to soak in the festive ambience without the need for a Haz-Mat suit.


DK Eyewitness

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.

Zagat 4.2

The "gorgeous", "nicely decorated" quarters ("well appointed" with flat-screens and pillow-tops) at this French Quarter "favorite" sure feel "royal", but its real appeal is "location, location, location".
