Pros: fantastic location, good value compared to surrounding hotels, beautiful courtyard. Cons: I left this hotel with about 25 bug bites on my back, arm, and face - a doctor confirms it was likely bed bugs. Other person staying in a separate bed had no issue. The single elevator in our wing felt like it might stop working at any... More

We have stayed at the Place d'Armes many times over the years and have always been pleased with our rooms. We have had rooms with a balcony and a view of Jackson Square, a view of the courtyard, and, on this trip, a view of St. Ann Street. There are stairs to the rooms or a small elevator. Our room...

Near French Quarter but far enough away for easy access and quietness. Room was much larger than anticipated but the bathroom part was pretty small. Continental breakfast was good but if want more then full breakfast spots are nearby. The bellhop/valet attendant was very nice and helpful. Would stay here again. Good value.

This is a unique property so don't expect cookie cutter rooms like in chain hotels. I had a courtyard view room with 2 queen beds on the second floor. Only drawback to the room was the location-separated from the rest of the group. This might be a benefit for others as it was very quiet being on the other side... More

We had 2 rooms for six nights, one interior room and the other with a window. I had the interior room and the absence of a window didn’t bother me at all. (I don’t normally spend time looking out a hotel room window anyway.) The bathroom was a little old & could do with a refresh, although having said that... More

As frequent travelers to The Big Easy, we've stayed in numerous French Quarter hotels; ranging from extremely expensive to budget options. For this spontaneous last minute trip, we chose The Place d'Armes. Like most FQ hotels, the Place is a worn out property, but this is characteristic of the FQ in general. You're paying for history and character, NOT lush... More

We lodged here this past week for 3 nights. Staff was very knowledgeable, prompt, and friendly. We parked our car in the hotel garage which made it very convenient for us as several areas we visited were all walking distances.

This hotel was steps away from Jackson Square. It's location was perfect and the staff was so accommodating and friendly! They were always willing to go the extra mile for their guests. The room was beautiful and my balcony overlooked St. Ann. I couldn't have asked for more... it was exactly what I had hoped for!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
