    Cool to hang out in Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse. There's a $15 cover if you're not a hotel guest but def worth it!

    Nice hotel for couples and singles. Kids are not a great idea here. The location's front door being on Bourbon makes it really easy to get in on the action. The hotel staff are very friendly.

    If you value your sleep, don't book a street-facing room. The noise level was absurd and went all night long. Go for a courtyard room with a view of the pool instead.

    There's definitely a lot to desire about the hotel's Desire Bistro & Oyster Bar. It offers scrumptious Louisiana seafood specialties, New Orleans' creole recipes and more.

    The point is to have a room overlooking Bourbon Street so book here well in advance. If you’re worried about the noise, have one or two in the front & the rest facing the courtyard and pool out back. Read more

    a great place to stay if you want to be on Bourbon Street... always clean and staff is great. Only drawback is noise depending on time of year, but it is NOLA!

    If you pass the hotel itself, heading towards Canal on Bourbon, there is a small adjunct bar that is perfect for football watching away from crowds. Also, a damn fine bloody mary.
