This midrange property, which opened in 2013 after a lengthy post-Katrina closure, does a few things very well. The 17 suites have full kitchens (for cereal eaters and leftover snackers, the dining-out savings add up). A heated pool, spa, and spacious courtyards link three 19th-century buildings. Decor is comfy traditional; room sizes and configurations vary (some work well for families or small groups). There’s a basic continental breakfast and occasional events at an outdoor bar and BBQ area (available for rent). Street noise can be an issue for front-facing rooms; third-floor rooms are less expensive for a reason: no elevators. Staff is friendly and helpful, though. The property uses a key hold system (guests “check” keys at front desk when leaving).
