Bathrooms and showers are quite large, with unique touches like exposed brick and chandeliers.
The outdoors space and wide courtyard serve as the main public hangout space here.
The innkeepers put a personal touch on your experience here: don't be afraid to ask for recommendations or reservations during your stay.
Breakfast is no longer provided, but the friendly innkeepers are happy to make recommendations on where to dine.
Guests can enjoy coffee in their rooms, and there are in-room refrigerators if you want to stash beer or wine to enjoy in the courtyard.
The new St. Claude streetcar runs from Rampart street (in front of the hotel) to St. Claude Street in the Bywater, and to Canal Street (where it connects with several other streetcar lines) in the other direction. The French Quarter, CBD, and Marigny are walking distance from here, and Rampart Street is an easy place to catch cabs. There is a small parking lot for guests' use.
