Nothing here to knock your socks off, but this former row house (and macaroni factory) in the quiet, residential end of the French Quarter has clean, basic rooms and fair prices. The public spaces feel sorta like Daddy-cave additions to a suburban home: a small wood-paneled bar; a glassed-in, poolside cafe; and a dunking pool. It’s all oddly cozy and welcoming, and a perfectly okay choice. It was for Sir Paul McCartney and family, who stayed here while he was in town recording Venus and Mars.
