I go to new orleans often, and have stayed in over 15 hotels in the french quarter. This hotel is the best as far as location and feel for the history of the veux carre.
This hotel is only one block from cafe dumonde, 1/4 block from Jackson Square and one of my favorite new orleans restaurants, the alpine (on the corner of chartes, at jackson square).
The staff is kind, the hotel is always clean and after my 3rd stay at this hotel, the staff is mostly the same which I think says a lot for how the hotel is managed.
I highly recommend it. If you are a person that cares more about fine bedding and ultra new bathrooms, you will be disappointed.
Oh, and if your into ghosts stories... ask the staff about the boys that playfully haunt the hotel.
