Well! I loved this hotel! Yes, the floors were creaky, the walls were thin, and the computer was down at check-out. But, the staff was helpful and unintrusive. It is beyond my imagination what some people are looking for when they visit the French Quarter, and this area was no worse or better than any of the streets in the Quarter. If you want a 5 star hotel then book a 5 star hotel, but if you are looking to go back in time and feel the ambiance of a by-gone era, this is one of the best! The only problems my sisters and I encountered were from other guests: spilled a cooler of water upstairs which came through the ceiling and beyond late (or early) pool parties.
Pros: inexpensive, romantic, convenient
Cons: on 4 lane street, needs music, thin walls
