We’re quite enamored of this midrange, architecturally picturesque hotel with very good service, set in a quiet part of the Quarter but within walking distance of Bourbon Street. The building surrounds a large courtyard (popular for weddings) with a heated pool. Rooms with courtyard-side balconies are extra pleasant; streetside ones are noisier, but it’s a fun view of the action. A mid-2015 renovation promises slightly larger bathrooms and updated decor, and a pleasantly uncluttered mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings. This might mean construction, ergo discounts and/or annoyances, so check the status when you reserve.
