While the hotel offers value with comfortable accommodations, some visitors mention drawbacks such as parking fees and noisy air conditioning.

Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
We had a very nice stay! We stayed for 5 nights in a courtyard facing room on the second floor. We did not hear any noise outside our room. The hotel location is great, you don’t hear any of the French Quarter noise but you are still close enough to be amongst it. The price was decent for the area. The breakfast had a lot of options and differed each day. It was also managed well and catered to different dietary needs. The pool and courtyard area was clean and there are lots of outside seating options. The room was standard, it could use a little TLC as it is aging but it was still comfortable. The room lighting is a tad dim for our liking but we made it work. We felt safe and secure the whole time, as the front door entryway requires card key access. The staff were also very nice and helpful. Maid service is daily.

Pro: the breakfast and outside courtyard area.
Con: the courtyard area IS the smoking area, as non-smokers we didn’t really like having to be around all the smoke to/from our room and when by the pool.
Tip: there is a 24/7 hot drink station located in the main lobby. Make sure you grab a drink - coffee, tea and hot choc options!

Take away: recommend! I would stay again.

I enjoyed staying here. The beds were comfortable, although mine was creaky so everytime I moved it made an awful noise. I also found the room a bit musty, I had to use my asthma inhaler a couple of times. The best way to describe it was that it felt like it used to be an old smoking room that hasn't been aired out properly. The TV also struggled with signal most nights as well.

Despite that, I really did enjoy my stay here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, the buffet breakfast each morning was fresh and tasty and replenished frequently, the location was walking distance (5-8mins to bourbon Street and French quarter) although the last couple of roads back to the hotel did feel a little unsafe as they were just quiet, so I would recommend not walking alone.

I slept well here, there was little noise, the courtyard was quiet and they left a gift bag of goodies for my friend as it was her birthday during our stay.

I would completely recommend this place.

We had a twin room without courtyard view. The room was on the small side, although adaquate for a short stay and there was room to place luggage. As others have mentioned the room is very dark and dull and had a smell to it (not massively offensive but enough to notice). The shower worked fine, the room was clean enough and the room had a fridge which was a bonus. I found the hotel staff to be very friendly and we received a lovely welcome from a young man with a great sense of humour. Breakfast was OK and replenished when needed, plenty of seating available and room to get what you need. The courtyard was very pretty and relaxing and a welcome area to sit for a quick break away from the dull room! We had no issues with the location, we felt safe enough walking to and from the hotel along the more well lit areas, even during the evening. There is a little store/deli a block away that does made to order po-boy sandwiches, fries and sells some basic foodstuff. The store looks scruffy from the outside but it is OK and staff were friendly in there. To get there turn left out of the hotel and the next left on Dumaine St, walk to the next road and find the shop on the right hand corner. There is a bar a few doors down, but other than this a walk into the french quarter is needed for a bit of nightlife, it is only a 10 minute walk. If the hotel can address the smell and brighten up the room (get rid of everything brown) I would rate this hotel as very good overall.

First and foremost the staff was amazing. attentive, caring, and helpful. The Courtyard was Beautiful, and Location was easy walking distance from everything you need on/around the French Quarter. It is Covid time so they did have stipulations. Cleaning of rooms was by request only, and breakfast was dished for you (still Included). Good time in New Orleans.

Thank you for a great review. I'm glad to hear you found our property convenient to your French Quarter experience and our beautiful courtyard relaxing. COVID restrictions have altered so many aspects of all of our daily lives, but keeping our guests and our staff safe is always our primary focus. We will look forward to seeing you when we are all on the other side of this. Thanks Stanley Mascair, CHA

The best thing about this hotel is the location in the French Quarter: Preservation Hall, Cafe Du Monde, Hermann-Grima House, Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel, Rouse's grocery store & Mr. B's Bistro, all within easy walking distance. Parking was just $20 in a gated, covered lot, the best deal for parking in the French Quarter. Other hotels charge twice that amount. We stayed at the back of the hotel which is quieter because it's not on the street side. The rooms are outdoor entrances so it was a bit noisy late at night with people coming and going and doors opening and closing. The bed was comfortable, though the pillows were odd shaped, too fluffy for me. There was a refrigerator in the room which is great for keeping drinks cold. The amenities were Pharmacopia citrus scented ones. The hot breakfast was good and they even offered dark and medium roast coffee. It ran 7:30-10:30 and was not too crowded. There is an outdoor swimming pool. Elevators were available but the top floor was on the third floor, so stairs were an easy climb. I would stay here again when we return to the French Quarter. We've paid less for a more upscale hotel in the Garden District, but this was the best value for a descent hotel in the French Quarter. Both service and cleanliness were outstanding.

We stayed here for one night after a cruise and we were not disappointed. We got to the hotel very early and it was raining heavily. We were greeted by a memeber of staff who took our bags and put them in storage until our room was ready. We were offered breakfast and were even given a freshley baked scone with our coffee (which was delicious!). We were checked into our room early which was a bonus. The hotel room was well equipped and had all the amenities you required. The lady on the front desk had booked us on a tour of the city, which is well worth taking even though a bit pricy. Breakfast was included in the stay and check out was a mid day. We had a late flight so they stored our bags for us after check out, which meant we had another day to explore New Orleans. This hotel is within walking distance of all the major attractions. We are so glad we stayed here. The staff are amazing and the welcome was so warm. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in New Orleans!

I met my husband 30 years ago by the flaming fountain at Pat O'Briens in New Orleans. We've loved NOLA ever since and return at least annually to enjoy the music, food and ambience that is the Big Easy. This trip was a little last minute and we needed a hotel that was reasonably priced and in a safe walkable location to all our favorite restaurants (and bars.) Boy, did we luck out with this hotel! First, location, location, location is even more important when you are navigating the streets in the August heat. It was the perfect launching point to head over to the Jazz Museum for the Satchmo festival, Frenchman street for more music and to return to the scene where we met at Pat O's. Second, our room had been renovated and the beds are so comfortable! We slept so well our entire trip because this hotel chose to prioritize good quality bedding. Third, the breakfast is absolutely amazing. Forget that classic, same old boring breakfast you might find at a chain hotel. They served something a little different every morning for our 5 day visit; fleur de lis waffles, bacon, sausage, sweet potatoes, cajun rice, fresh fruit, bagels, homemade blueberry bread AND some of the best grits! Every interaction with staff was so helpful and pleasant and they even had a pool and a beautiful NOLA style courtyard! We absolutely loved this hotel and highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed!

What a perfect place to stay in the French quarters! Located across the street from Louis Armstrong park and an easy walk everywhere. The breakfast surpassed our expectations and the hotel was super clean and the staff was fantastic! It’s super close to a fantastic corner market called the quarter grocery on burgundy street where we got the best shrimp Po-boys, muffulettas, grilled cheese, red beans and ice, philly steak sandwiches, wine, beer and ice cream for late night snacks. They even have a cork screw so you can open your wine before you take it home. We were super happy with our suite size and the price of our stay. We would definitely stay there again and we will definitely recommend this hotel to others!

Our stay at this Beat Western was ok. Due to COVID restrictions there was some inconveniences. The hotel provided some hot breakfast items but you were served a plate and not too many options. We also had to request cleaning of the room if we wanted it, which we did half way thru our 5 day stay. We requested early in the morning before we left - 7 hours later it still was not done so we had to go back and talk to front desk again. Cleaners finally came but we had to leave room again while it was done. The other issue we had was we paid for Parking but the hotel had mattresses delivered so one day we had to pale on street because Parking lot entrance was blocked- just inconvenient. Hotel was fairly clean and quiet. Good location to walk to French quarter but be out of noise

Ms Marybeth Thank you for taking the time to share your comments.We are glad you found our unique location accessible to everything "French Quarter". As a traveler I understand the precautions we are taking by serving a plated hot breakfast and not entering your room are different. I understand and yes it is different, it is restrictions in place for you and your family's safety and the safety of our associates.It is a "new normal" for us. We will be better. We did have the mattresses delivery and it did take us about an hour to complete, I apologized for the timing when your car was driven in, so again I am sorry for the inconvenience. Hope you will visit with us again when we are on the other side of this. We appreciate your business.

This hotel benefits from its location which is in the heart of the French quarter and a short walk from Canal Street and Borboun Street.
We thought that the hotel certainly had character that was similar to fitting in with the theme of the French quarter - the building was historic, a nice courtyard and pool and “oldy worldly” type furnishings. The breakfast was good.

Downside was we were not impressed at all with our room. It was large with windows that opened out onto a corridor so you could just see a wall and it was very dark. You had to keep curtains shut as everyone would see in your room otherwise. We asked to move room but it wasn’t an option even considered. Also because it is an old building the windows and walls are thin and the maids shout and everything guests say can be heard in your room. This didn’t bother us much but we noticed it as normally hotel rooms are very quiet and well insulated. If you don’t sleep well with noise I would give this a wide berth with the air con unit and noise from guests/staff.
The air con in the room was a very old unit that was the noisiest thing from the 1960s that really impacted on sleep.
The bed was nice and comfy, room clean but the television went off due to a storm and stayed off for two days despite them saying it was being repaired.
The reception staff were not very friendly and raising anything as an issue was met with no apology or appreciation that this was a holiday…. A little friendlier, going a little extra to make guest happy would go a long way.
As much as we enjoyed the stay due to location I don’t think we would return as the room was very depressing and miserable.
