Cameron Todd

Besides its central French Quarter location, perks at this boutique hotel include a charming courtyard, luxury room amenities, and a delicious free breakfast.

Friendly staff here are happy to give tips on how best to explore the surrounding French Quarter.

room

Several rooms have street-facing balconies, while others look into the courtyard. Rooms have gorgeous black marble floors, luxury linens, iPhone docking stations, water bottles, and coffee makers.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Old, stone walls at this hotel (and throughout the Quarter) can make wifi access spotty.

bathroom

Marble walk-in showers are large and modern.

lobby

A few charming parlor areas surround the courtyard. The brick courtyard, with a fountain at its center and plenty of wrought-iron bistro tables is a nice place to unwind in morning or evening.

gym

A cozy gym has a few cardio machines and free weights.

dining

A sweeping buffet fills the breakfast room each morning, with many delicious hot items, southern specialties, bacon, and sausage.

drinking

Both 21st Amendment, a Prohibition-style cocktail bar, and Patrick's Bar Vin are located off of the courtyard. Both make a good start or end to your night. At Bar Vin, wine-enthusiastic guests will love to browse bordeauxs, relax, and talk wine after a long day.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Walk to Canal Street and catch the streetcar to Uptown, Garden District, or Mid City. Walking or pedicab is easiest within the quarter.

Restaurants

Galatoire's (1-minute walk) is an old classic for a fancy, drawn out New Orleans lunch. Try Bourbon House (2-minute walk) for raw oysters and fresh, local red fish.

Bars

The hotel offers a complimentary cocktail at 21st Amendment a La Louisiane (2-minute walk) around the corner, a prohibition era-style bar with a party vibe. Old Absinthe House (1-minute walk) is a classic and must-see landmark for history buffs who also love drinking.

WHY WE LIKE IT

A small hotel with old world charm and nice amenities, it's a perfect choice for those looking to add a little luxury to a very French Quarter experience.
