8/10 Very good

Just as advertised - decent place to stay in NOLA
It was pretty much as advertised- industrial, youth hostel kind of feel. 3 BR/2 BA, wooden floor, very small bedrooms, small living area with a full kitchen. Perfect for our family of 5. Walk thru a bar to get to door to hotel part. No parking so used app to find parking lot- paid ~$20/ day which is not bad for NOLA. Very responsive to request for more coffee. Plenty of towels provided. My suggestion would be to avoid if you like a fancier hotel vibe but very serviceable if you don’t mind the more basic place. Located on edge of French Qtr- good pick up spot for Uber. Wish there were shelves on the walls in bath and bedrooms just to have a place to put stuff since suitcase had to be squished in on the floor.

Unless you want to cart all your luggage around, plan your arrival to coincide with check-in. Also there is music in the bar below until early morning-paper thin walls let’s you hear that and coming, going, showers and arguments of customers above you. Lastly TV has no cable-you have to hook your phone accounts to it and after 1/2 hour of on line “help” we gave up. Having said all of that, the rooms themselves are clean, modern and attractive. Close to French Quarter and trolley lines. Rooftop pool nice bonus. Can’t believe that can’t solve luggage issue. Small storage locker areas with same check in ID number would work. Only locked out once- got in within 2 minutes tho so ok.

Great location and perfect for our stay!
This place was perfect for our stay in New Orleans. The location was on a safe street and in walking distance to Bourbon Street. The unit was as described. The three bedrooms each had the ability to control AC for the room which was a great plus. i would highly recommend this location and unit for a stay in new Orleans.
