The guest house was in a reasonable location and convenient to the French Quarter. The room was in slight disrepair and the curtains were filthy which made me question the overall cleanliness

I loved having the balcony. Everything was clean and staff was super nice welcoming us to free wine tasting, which was only one sample but it was still nice.

Overall, very nice. Excellent location, walkability is outstanding. Loved sitting on the balcony, or in the common areas. The room was very comfortable, and roomy. I have one complaint. There was a rat in our sitting room on the first night. It was crazy cold for New Orleans, and it’s probably what drove it inside, but it was extremely upsetting. Luckily for me, my husband killed it. I was a bit disappointed in the response. No offer of anything - my husband sprayed the room with repellant, the hotel did nothing. They also didn’t offer any lagniappe to compensate us for having to deal with vermin. In short, thank goodness my husband was there to take care of it.

I didn't like the old nasty pizza laying on the sidewalk by the stairs. But that's to be expected in NOLA anyway
