Upon arriving the staff was friendly and very welcoming. This is a great location in the French Quarter. I enjoyed that I received text messages, which made the stay very personal and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel and it was on the ghost tour (added bonus).
Nice quiet hotel close to everything we wanted to do. Nice breakfast complementary . Only draw back was the valet parking. But it wasn't the hotel's fault. There was construction going on and made things a little difficult to get to.
Overall it was decent. Its a cute place, its also the first schoolhouse in Louisiana, so the history behind it was interesting. The pool area and courtyard are lovely, but the pool is small, very little places to sit. They NEVER skim the pool so there is always a ton of flowers and shrubbery in the pool. They also never stock towels by the pool. I did enjoy all the trees and bushes by the pool but they unfortunately made for a lot of bugs, we got eaten alive.
There is also only 1 ice machine for the entire hotel - which kept running out of ice
The staff were nice, but unapproachable. This is my 4th time to NOLa and I always stay in the same hotel, this year it was booked so this was a second option. We had fun, the rooms were clean and it was a good experience overall, but I will only ever book here again if I have to. It doesn't come close to meeting the standards we are used to through out first hotel choice.
We were a little concerned not knowing anything about this hotel but we were pleasantly surprised by this quaint hotel. The room was very comfortable. Most important part was the location. Just a block from Bourbon Street with no noise at all. Staff was friendly. Parking was expensive but worth it. You don't want to drive in the French Quarter.
You have to imagine when these spaces were built to truly appreciate the rooms. The Biscuit Palace was never intended to be a Hotel. Having said that, the room was well accommodating. Bed, chairs, bathroom/shower, dresser, wardrobe with iron and ironing board, cable TV, mini fridge, and microwave all included. We stayed in the Burgundy Room on the second floor. We had a shared balcony complete with a seating area. Great view from there to the roof tops of the surrounding area. (slate roofs and historic chimneys) There is also a courtyard to enjoy with a fountain complete with Goldfish.
We chose The Biscuit Palace for the location and the cost. We don't need a 5 star room to enjoy The Big Easy. If you are going to New Orleans and you chose to spend your time in your room then I would suggest the business district hotels area. The Biscuit Palace is for real people who enjoy the history of the area and the homes that line the outer areas of the French Quarter.
I would recommend this place for anyone who wants a room that's comfy, and Very close to the action. 1/2 block from Bourbon Street! A few blocks away from Famous Jackson Square. There are as many small shops that line the streets that sell collectables that every woman wants to wear, share, or adorn your home with if Bourbon Street isn't for you.
Always a great time in New Orleans, this time The Biscuit Palace was a part of it. The Biscuit Palace will be where we try to stay on our next trip back!
With its mix of sacred and profane, the French Quarter defines laissez-faire. This 85-block area is home to Bourbon Street’s rowdy bars, as well as Royal Street’s upmarket antiques. The devil’s music—in the form of New Orleans jazz—thrives at Preservation Hall. Nearby, hymns accompany Mass at St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. A block away, French Market vendors hawk foods and souvenirs.
