Very clean, quiet, safe and super comfy room. Barbara is always there for you!! Just perfect place if you want little gateway from French Quarter craziness but close enough to walk to Bourbon St, and endless selection of entertainment and excellent restaurants. Thank you Barbara <3

Our one bed room suite with king bed was enormous and beautifully decorated...with fully equipped kitchen it had all the comforts of home. We especially liked having a glass of wine on the second floor balcony watching all the activity on Esplanade. The grounds of the Storyville are...

We had called the owner/manager earlier in the day to arrange check in time. Arrived and no one was available and the front gate was locked. After numerous calls...

Hotel Storyville was very nice & quiet. The walk from Bourbon St. wasn't that far, about a 12 min walk. The price was very affordable. The hotel manager gave us a complimentary upgrade for free. I would highly recommend this hotel.

When my Uber pulled up to the front of the house it seriously took my breath away. The historical beauty and the large upstairs patio is absolutely gorgeous. The room I stayed in was wonderfully designed. I loved all the unique touches that remind me of the Caribbean Islands. The bed was extremely comfortable. I slept like a baby every...

First of all, let me say that we were delighted with the facility. The rooms are quaint and well appointed, the back courtyard area is delightful and relaxing, the kitchen area was well stocked, and it was perfectly located for us. One bus lines runs right by and stops are a block away. Another bus and the street car are...
