I absolutely loved this property. It is a bit busy in yhe evenings on friday and saturday because of the rooftop and other places to dine, but i came to Nola to feel alive. I traveled with my husband and 2 and a half year old. We had a double queen room and it was STUNNING. The area was perfect, the trolley stops right out front. Perfection. I loved every second and the brunch in Jack Rose is divine. We will be back, certainly.

An older hotel with lots of charm outside of the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans. . A trolley stop is right across the street and provides an inexpensive and easy way to get within walking distance of where you want to go. The only improvement I could suggest is to add a coffee maker in each room. My wife is a tea drinker and it was only through the kindness of the bartender downstairs that she was able to have a cup of tea before going to bed. DO NOT MISS the rooftop bar. The view is magnificent!
