The spacious, raised building dates to the 1920s, so it’s decidedly different from the city’s 18th-century European and Caribbean influences. That’s part of its interest, but non-architecture buffs will be more taken by the pretty (if petite) pool and spa, the quiet residential feel, the ever-helpful host, and the proximity to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Nothing’s too fancy here: the midsize rooms; the small, clean bathrooms; the continental breakfast. But for location and the comfy indoor and outdoor places to chill, it’s a perfectly good choice. The room with a queen and two twin beds is a good family option; the balcony rooms’ French doors open to a sweetly scented courtyard.
